Smile Designs

Getting the smile you want and deserve

When it comes to your smile, you want to look your very best. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with perfectly straight teeth. It takes a great deal of work on your part as well as help from the dentist to get the perfect smile. With so many treatment options available to you, over the counter and with the dentist, you have ways to design your smile exactly how you wish. Check out the treatment options below to have a beautiful smile.

Whitening Treatments

If you find that your smile is becoming discolored, losing that pearly white shine, then you can consider a whitening treatment. The dentist offers several treatment options as well as drug stores with over the counter whitening kits. Work with your dentist to have a bright white smile with laser treatments or professional whitening trays. Use DIY kits when you want to spend less and change the look of your teeth. However, DIY treatments will not produce a stunning white as the dental treatments due to minimal bleach being used.

Straightening Methods

Perhaps your teeth are not as straight as they could be and you wish to make your smile perfectly aligned? If so, you will find that dental treatments are available to straighten up your teeth. Your dentist will review your teeth and determine the best course of action. Braces are a common form of straightening while products such as Invisalign can also work to bring teeth to a straight position. You will love how your smile looks after this treatment. Time frames will vary as to how long you must wear braces or other products to achieve the straightest results.


As we age, the teeth begin to move and shift, which can cause problems in the mouth. Poor dental hygiene or simply life in general can result in teeth falling out or needing to be pulled. When this happens, you may begin to feel self-conscious about your smile. Dentures are the answer to this problem. Dentures can be created for you personally to achieve a brand new smile. Use a partial to replace one or a few teeth that may need replacement while a full denture set can be created when you are missing the majority or all of your teeth.

The dentist can help you find the right denture option for your teeth needs after a full evaluation. Once you teeth have been checked, the dentist will lay out a plan which could include extraction of additional teeth. You will have your mouth molded so that the new dentures will fit perfectly and look their very best.

Overall, it is essential that you take care of your teeth. Brush at least two times a day and floss after meals. Visit your dentist at least two times a year for cleanings and checkups to ensure proper mouth health. If you feel you need a treatment to better your smile, speak to your dentist about alternatives.
