5 Ways To Improve Your Smile

Advancements in modern dentistry allow you to choose a custom treatment based on your unique dental needs. In addition to routine cleaning, Russo Dentistry provides a wide range of options from veneers and bleaching to tooth and gum sculpting—all designed to help you achieve your best smile. Discover the possibilities below, then contact your dentist to start building your ideal treatment plan sooner than you think!

  1. Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a thin layer of porcelain placed over the surface of a tooth. They are completely customized to fit you and are generally applied and utilized with minimal discomfort and adjustment. While used primarily for protection, they can also correct other dental problems including cracked teeth, discoloration, spacing, and crowding. Your veneers are designed to look and feel like natural teeth – so you can improve your smile without sacrificing tooth functionality.

  1. Laser Gum Contouring

Just like cosmetic enamel sculpting, laser gum contouring provides total gum symmetry for an even, healthy looking smile. This procedure is often used to decrease the volume of gums shown in smiling and provides a cheaper and easier alternative to cosmetic crown lengthening. That means you can experience the same glamourous effect for less, as well as a shorter—and often painless—treatment time. In fact, most laser gum contouring treatments can be completed in as little as one session!

  1. In-Office Power Bleaching

For long-term or severe tooth discoloration, we recommend in-office power bleaching. This procedure is designed to clear out internal stain from your teeth and works best on patients with tan or brown staining. Power bleaching results in longer lasting effects than surface whitening alone and reinforces the strength of your teeth as well. This way, your whiter smile is guaranteed to last for years to come.

  1. Cosmetic Enamel Sculpting

This procedure works to even out small chips and bumps in teeth to improve the appearance and symmetry of your natural teeth. An underrated treatment, sculpting can completely redefine the space and shine of your teeth for a seamless, smooth look. It is typically performed without anesthetic with minimal discomfort in as little as one visit. Plus, a smoother tooth surface helps prevent further damage to your smile, resulting in an even, resilient smile surface.

  1. Regular Dental Visits

Sometimes the simple solution of regular, twice-per-year dental visits is the easiest way to improve your smile. During your regular checkups, any issues with your teeth and gums can be easily identified and addressed before they became a more expensive, painful, or deep-seated issue.  Remember, you and your dentist are the best defense when it comes to a beautiful, healthy smile.
