I'm not happy with the shape of my teeth. How can you help?
If you are unhappy with the esthetics of your smile, the first step is to make an appointment with Dr. Dolin or Dr. Spriggs with The Smile Shop. Like every person is unique, so are your smiles and teeth. At the consult, we will complete a comprehensive exam to evaluate every aspect of your smile and go over all the options to give you the smile you’ve been dreaming of!
White composite fillings material can be used to improve the shape of your teeth. Most commonly it is used to fix small chips in your teeth or close gaps between your teeth. Composite bonding is the most conservative option because little to no tooth structure needs to be removed.
Veneers are thin porcelain partial crowns that are customized to your teeth and cemented onto your tooth. Veneers are great to improve not only the shape of your teeth but also the color.
Crowns, sometimes referred to as caps, go all the way around your tooth. Teeth that have had sufficient decay or trauma may benefit from crowns due to their strength. Your smile and teeth can be designed to the perfect shape and color and greatly improved esthetically.
Orthodontics, also known as Braces
Straightening your teeth to a more optimal position can help the esthetics of your smile tremendously. Braces can be performed with traditional metal form brackets or clear Invisalign retainers. Orthodontic treatment is an option that would take the longest to achieve but would be very conservative and long-lasting.
We have plenty of options to improve the shape of your teeth and overall the happiness you have with your smile. Please contact our Durham, NC office today to make an appointment. We look forward to improving your smile
