Cosmetic dentistry procedures have opened up a tremendous amount of ways to improve your smile. No matter what bothers you about your smile, chances are there is an option to correct it and give you the beautiful smile you deserve. Dr. Denise Perrotta in Winston Salem, North Carolina offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry choices to remake your smile.

Let’s consider just a few of the many ways we can help your smile:

Professional teeth whitening is an excellent option to whiten and brighten a dull, aging smile. You can whiten your teeth up to 8 shades, and your amazing results can last for years You can be assured professional teeth whitening is safe too, because the products have been rigorously tested and approved by the American Dental Association.

Cosmetic bonding, contouring, and reshaping are often combined to hide many aesthetic issues. Bonding uses composite, a liquid material that can be matched to the color of your teeth and sculpted to match natural tooth contours. Contouring and reshaping are often combined with bonding to even out chipped edges and minimize the appearance of crowding, tooth overlap, and other issues.

Porcelain veneers are the option of choice if you want a dramatic difference in the beauty of your smile. Veneers are versatile enough to hide many minor and major aesthetic issues. They are thin laminates of beautiful, stain-resistant porcelain that are cemented on to the front surfaces of your teeth. You should consider veneers if you have teeth that are:

  • Chipped or cracked
  • Eroded or abraded
  • Discolored or stained

You can also minimize the appearance of crowded teeth, rotated teeth, gaps between your teeth and other alignment issues. In fact, you can change the size, color, and shape of your teeth with veneers. The choice is up to you!
