Smile Designs

There are many of us who, while we have beautiful teeth, simply aren’t happy with the way our smile looks. Millions more suffer from decay and damage to their teeth that leave them with a less than perfect smile that serves as a source of embarrassment for them. Thankfully there is a rising cosmetic procedure known as Smile Design, really more of a conceptualization of taking hold of our personal vision for ourselves than a procedure in itself.

Smile Design: Getting The Smile You’ve Always Wanted

Smile Design has been advertised at a steadily growing number of dental practices, but the question of “what is smile design?” often goes unanswered. Smile design means one thing, getting the smile that suits our vision of ourselves with our perfect smile. Intended as a cosmetic procedure to improve our overall appearance and replace embarrassment over unsightly teeth with pride in our set of perfect pearly whites.

What Can Smile Design Do?

Smile design can fill the gaps in your teeth that occurred either because of missing teeth or due to natural genetic tendencies you may have inherited. Through smile design, you can change where your teeth are set, use cosmetic procedures like veneers to close the gapes and reshape your teeth, and generally just improve the appearance of your smile.

What Role Do Porcelain Veneers Play?

Porcelain Veneers are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry, a process which removes a thin layer of enamel from your teeth to replace it with a perfect set of porcelain covers. These covers are where porcelain veneers get their name and are used to perfect the appearance of your teeth, and the porcelain they’re made of has a transparent quality that leaves them nearly indistinguishable from your own teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used in Smile Design to correct a number of conditions, including:

  • Enamel That’s Worn Or Eroded: Degradation of your enamel through trauma or poor hygiene causes pitting, cavities, and discoloration.
  • Cracked or Chipped Teeth: Wear and tear, traumatic injury, or poor dental hygiene can cause teeth to become chipped or cracked. This creates a smile that is jagged and uneven.
  • Genetic Abnormalities: Gaps in your teeth, strange coloration, misaligned teeth, or ‘snaggle-teeth’ can result from the genetic lottery, thankfully porcelain veneers can correct this!

Using porcelain veneers as part of your Smile Design procedure can produce a perfect Hollywood smile, covering or repairing imperfections in your teeth that leave you feeling embarrassed.
