Try to envision the perfect smile.
What does it look like to you?
Does it look like a smile you’ve seen in a magazine photo of a movie star or a model? Does it look like the smile of one of your friends or coworkers?
What would you need to get that perfect smile for yourself?
If you live in or near Lexington, KY, the best way is to make an appointment at Beaumont Family Dentistry to discuss cosmetic dentistry. With three dentist offices, we are conveniently located for patients across Central Kentucky.
While you may know what you wish was different about your teeth, you may not know how by make those changes happen.
This is why we encourage you to visit us for a free consultation. During this visit, you will fill out a smile questionnaire.
Using that information, you will discuss the things you don’t like about your smile and the ways you wish it was different.
We may take digital photos of your teeth and show you some possible changes to your teeth and smile.
If you would like a more tangible understanding of the possible ways we help you improve your smile, we can make a model of what your teeth could look like for a small fee.
We will discuss the options available to you based on the current condition and health of your teeth.
Knowing Your Options
The good news is we have several services that could help you improve the appearance of your teeth. In many cases, you may have more than one option. Our team will be glad to discuss the differences and the benefits of each service.
With that in mind, here is a short overview of some of the ways we can help you improve your smile.
» Straighten your teeth — Many times people have their teeth straightened when they are teenagers, but it has become more common for adults to receive orthodontic treatment later in life.
We offer Invisalign(R), Fastbraces(R), and more traditional orthodontic options as well. We can help you decide which of these options can give you the straight teeth that you want.
Another alternative would be to get veneers, which can give you the appearance of straight teeth.
» Fix damaged teeth — Our teeth have to deal with a lot of abuse every day. The food and drink we consume can increase our risk of tooth decay. Clenching and grinding our teeth can wear them down, and injuries can cause our teeth to become chipped or cracked.
If you need to repair individual teeth, dental bonding can be a fast and effective way to restore your teeth to their original condition. If you need to repair multiple teeth, you can once again consider veneers to improve your smile.
» Change the shape of your teeth — It’s possible that some of your teeth don’t seem to match the rest of your smile.
If you have a tooth that seems too large, it can look out of place in your smile. Tooth contouring is a way to reshape your tooth so it better matches the rest of your smile.
If you have teeth that seem too small or too short, we can try dental bonding to build up those teeth.
» Whiten your smile — Teeth can become discolored because of the things you eat, because you are getting older, because you use tobacco, or because of a side effect of an illness or medication.
Depending on the reason for your discoloration, you may want to consider professional teeth whitening or veneers. Our teeth whitening products can remove years and decades of built up stains in a short amount of time. Veneers can hide those discolored teeth no matter the reason for your discoloration.
What we have mentioned above are just a few of the ways we can change the appearance of your smile. We can change gummy smiles, repair broken teeth, close gaps between your teeth, and more.
Many patients find that they can benefit from more than one of our services. We like to call this a smile makeover.
When you schedule your consultation, we welcome you to ask questions about our different services. We want to help you create the smile of your dreams, and we want to make sure you understand how to make that happen.
