Do you long for a radiant smile that lights up any room? Do you wish your teeth looked picture-perfect like the actors on TV? In years past, people born with less-than-perfect teeth simply had to live with it, but thanks to modern dentistry, you can now get the smile you’ve always wanted. 

The Smile Shop offers various cosmetic dentistry services to improve your smile’s aesthetics, such as teeth whitening, dental implants, veneers, and more. We stay up-to-date on all the latest trends and technologies to deliver exceptional results for each of our patients. Here are seven of the most popular cosmetic dentistry trends right now. 

#1 Professional Teeth Whitening 

Teeth whitening is a quick and effective way to upgrade your smile instantly, and it’s perfect for preparing for special events or simply pampering yourself by creating a stain-free set of teeth. We offer custom take-home whitening trays, in-office booster whitening, and individual tooth whitening. Your dentist can help you determine the best treatment for your unique dental health needs, aesthetic goals, and lifestyle. 

#2 Inlays and Onlays 

Inlays and onlays are indirect fillings made of porcelain or composite to fill a decayed or damaged tooth. Inlays and onlays are created in a dental lab and then fitted and bonded to the teeth by your dentist. 

#3 Composite Bonding 

Composite bonding is perfect for chipped, discolored, broken, or decay teeth needing repair. Bonding is made from a durable, tooth-matched material, and your dentist applies it directly to the tooth to restore and reshape it. Composite bonding blends in with your natural smile, so no one will ever know you’ve had dental work done! 

#4 Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells of material bonded to the tooth’s surface to correct or repair cracks, chips, asymmetry, or discoloration. Veneers are stain-resistant and can also camouflage the appearance of mild misalignments or gaps between teeth. 

#5 Dental Implants 

Dental implants permanently replace teeth with custom prosthetics, all the way down to the root below the gumline. Not only do dental implants restore your smile’s appearance and function, but they also promote jawbone health and prevent resorption from tooth loss. 

#6 Smile Makeover 

If you have a laundry list of to-dos for your smile, then a smile makeover may be the treatment for you. A smile makeover includes a comprehensive assessment of your smile’s aesthetics to improve its appearance. Usually, this includes one or more cosmetic dental treatments, such as dental implants, dental veneers, and teeth whitening. 

#7 Full Mouth Reconstruction 

A full mouth reconstruction is for patients who may need more extensive work to improve functional problems with their bite, bone structure, and muscles. With a full mouth reconstruction, your dentist can transform your smile from dull to dazzling!
