Celebrities from television personalities and Instagram influencers, to A listers in big movies, or even sports players, are always flashing their beautiful pearly whites to charm their legions of adoring fans. Unfortunately, most people think you have to be a celebrity to get that kind of beautiful smile. Luckily, you don’t. Anyone can achieve a beautiful, celeb-worthy smile, especially with the help of cosmetic dentistry in Phoenix, Arizona.
Below you will read about a few cosmetic dental procedures that could help you accomplish the smile of your dreams.
1. Laser Gum Recontouring
Do you have a gummy smile? These smiles are often caused by genetics, where gum tissue grows midway over a tooth to produce the appearance of short teeth.
If gummy smiles bother you, the laser gum recontouring procedure can help with minimal anesthetic and a quick office visit. Cosmetic dentists use a high-concentrated beam of laser light to vaporize unwanted gum tissue, then they reshape the leftover gums to perfectly frame teeth.
2. Lip Repositioning
Another way to cure a wide or gummy smile is a lip repositioning procedure. Cosmetic dentists work close with oral surgeons to remove tissue from the upper and/or lower inner lips, then suture the incisions back into place to heal. Within a matter of weeks, patients can smile with a repositioned focus on their beautiful teeth instead of their gum lines.
Most celebrities have veneers, which are thin porcelain shells that fit over their original teeth. Cosmetic dentists in Scottsdale, AZ, will remove a thin layer of enamel from the front and sides of a tooth, then fasten the veneers. Most veneers are stronger and brighter than original teeth, but your teeth and gums have to be in good condition for dentists to consider you for the procedure. Veneers can help hide the appearance of misshapen teeth, gaps, or chips.
The aforementioned cosmetic dentistry procedures in Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona, have been known to help people better display award-winning smiles that make wow-worthy first impressions. Be sure you ask our dentist about these procedures and others at your next checkup.
