Our movies and television screens are filled with people who have “perfect” smiles.
The thing is, few stars were born with their “Hollywood smiles.” Many, if not most, of them have received some kind of cosmetic dentistry.
The services they received are not reserved for the rich and famous. You can get them right here in Tulsa, OK, at Galleria of Smiles. Today, we want to discuss cosmetic services that we offer and what they could do to help you improve your smile.
Cosmetic Services And What They Can Do
If we’ve learned anything, it’s that no two patients are the same, even if they do want to make similar changes to their smiles. With that in mind, here are some services you may want to consider if you want to transform your teeth.
◼ Teeth whitening
Let’s start with what may be the most popular cosmetic dental service in the United States. A white smile looks more attractive and can boost your self-confidence. Professional whitening can remove the deepest stains from your teeth.
We offer three whitening options at Galleria of Smiles — KöR, Opalescence, and laser whitening. We will gladly discuss the differences with you so you can decide which is right for you.
There are a variety of reasons to consider orthodontic care, but one of them is to improve the appearance of your smile. Orthodontic treatments can correct overbites, underbites, and other bite problems. They can close gaps between teeth and straighten crooked teeth.
We offer both traditional and short-term orthodontic care. Our office is the place to visit if you are interested in ceramic braces, lingual braces (which are bonded to the back of your teeth), Invisalign® or Six Month Smiles.
◼ Dental crowns
We wouldn’t be surprised if you thought of dental crowns as a restorative service. They are often used for those reasons, but today’s dental crowns are made of lifelike materials that can improve your smile, too.
Crowns can be used to repair teeth that have been damaged by breaks, cracks, or decay. They also can change the shape of teeth that are small or misshapen or individual teeth that may be discolored.
◼ Gum or teeth reshaping
Sometimes too much gum tissue can give you a “gummy” smile. Gum reshaping is a way to remove excess tissue so your teeth are more prominent when you smile.
If you have teeth that appear long or large compared to your other teeth, then teeth contouring is a way to reshape those teeth so they blend in with the rest of your smile.
◼ Dental veneers
No service can fix every possible cosmetic issue, but veneers can improve smiles in a lot of different ways. Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth. As a result, they can be used to conceal discolored teeth, broken or chipped teeth, gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, and more.
◼ Smile makeovers
For some patients, a combination of cosmetic services may be needed to give them the smile of their dreams. We call this a smile makeover. You might be surprised just how different your smile could look when all is said and done.
