Your lips frame your teeth, drawing attention to, and even enhancing your smile. That may be why women who don’t usually wear makeup often wear lipstick. Men are also paying attention to their lips. In one study, 30% of men used lip moisturizers at least once daily.
Lip cosmetics may enhance the frame, but cosmetic dentistry can complete the picture. Non-surgical dental techniques like bonding and veneers can actually plump out tissues and reduce lines and fine wrinkles for women and men, adding the appearance of volume to lips. Teeth whitening can safely add sparkle and glamor to any smile.
So whatever your gender, consider enhancing your smile!
- Do you avoid smiling for photos, or always smile with your lips closed?
- Do you cover your mouth with your hand when you smile or laugh?
- Do you feel that your stained or yellow teeth make you look older?
- Do you see dark fillings, chips, crowding, or gaps when you smile or laugh?
- Do you sometimes wish you had a more stellar smile?
With so much pressure to keep a young, attractive appeal, it’s easy to feel intimidated. It’s difficult to know whre to start– hair, skin, clothes? But there’s one easy first step that will give your appearance dramatic improvement…. You can revitalize your smile! Stains can be removed, teeth can be whitened, and gaps, chips, crowding and the shape of teeth can all be corrected.
Your smile makeover can even enhance other facial features, like make your lips appear fuller and making wrinkles seem like they’ve disappeared. And most importantly, your overall health can be improved. Cosmetic dentistry can ensure that your smile is balanced and healthy, and studies show that smiling more can help you release tension and stress.
If you answer yes to any of the above questions, cosmetic dentistry could be what you are looking for to help you smile more.
Today’s tooth-colored invisible fillings can give you more than just a pretty face- they can strengthen your teeth, seal out bacteria, and decrease your teeth’s sensitivity to hot and cold. After all, besides wanting to look great, there are many reasons for replacing older fillings. Daily chewing and grinding can eventually wear down tooth surfaces, along with fillings and restorations. This can allow bacteria into the tooth, and can create cracks that may require more extensive restoration. Attractive, invisible fillings called inlays can be made from porcelain, cast glass, or composite resin. Comparable to the strength and beauty of natural teeth, these can be colored and formed to fit teeth so well that you can hardly detect them. In fact, with your new self-confidence, you’ll be laughing out loud again– and not showing those fillings off!
