Want a Perfect Smile? Cosmetic Dentistry Is the Answer!

Between billboards and TV, we see perfect smiles all the time. And yet, somehow, ours never quite matches the sparkle and shine of those models with pearly white teeth in soda commercials.

Why is a smile so important? 

Well, did you know our smile is one of the first things people notice?


99.7% of adults believe a smile is an important social asset.

But what can you do if you don’t have a perfect smile? 

A lot of people have stained or crooked teeth, gaps between teeth, or even a gummy smile that they’d like to have fixed.

Thankfully, having a perfect smile is no longer left to genetics.

While your genes certainly affect your smile, you don’t need to be born with picture-perfect teeth.

Nowadays, you can create your own version of a perfect smile with a custom smile design. This personalized treatment plan involves one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments to transform your smile.

Let’s take a look at how you can fix common smile imperfections.

How to fix discolored or stained teeth

Do you like coffee in the morning? How about a glass of wine in the evening? Or a hot bowl of spaghetti for dinner? 

Many of the foods and drinks we consume each day contribute to the discoloration of our teeth.

Maybe you’ve tried the store-bought teeth whitening strips and been dissatisfied with them. While they may offer some slight improvement, you likely don’t want to be using them for the rest of your life.

So, how can you remove stains from your teeth?

Professional teeth whitening

Instead of having to wait months for DIY treatments that’ll barely improve the brightness of your smile, professional teeth whitening offers both quicker and more effective treatments to help you achieve that perfect smile.

You have two options:

  • An at-home kit with custom trays to fit your teeth and a whitening solution that yields desired results in as little as three weeks.
  • An in-office treatment that uses a specially formulated whitening gel to whiten your teeth up to 10 shades lighter in under an hour!

How to fix crooked or gapped teeth

Crooked teeth and gaps between teeth are common problems for many adults. Even one or two misaligned teeth or the smallest of gaps between teeth might make you uncomfortable with your smile.

Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry has the answer to give you a perfect smile.


Porcelain veneers can fix virtually any blemish of the teeth, including:

  • Stains and discoloration
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Chips
  • Gaps and alignment

Also, if you have a gummy smile or feel your teeth are too short, veneers can be used to make your teeth appear longer, balancing out your teeth and gums.

These porcelain caps are matched to the likeness of your teeth (or desired goal) to ensure a completely natural-looking smile.

In addition, they’re extremely durable and stain-resistant, meaning they’ll last for years and years.
