How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Transform Your Smile and Boost Your Confidence

Did you know that smiling elevates your mood? According to Psychology Today, the simple act of flashing your smile can boost dopamine and serotonin production in your brain. That’s to say, smiling can help you feel happier! 

But what if you don’t love your smile? At Westlake Smile Studio in Westlake Village, California, Dr. Mimi Theerathada knows the power of a happy smile. It’s why we’re happy to provide a variety of cosmetic dentistry services so that you can love your smile too.

Below are a few ways that cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile from dull to dazzling.

Transform your smile with cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that aims to improve the appearance of your smile. While in-office teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic services, it’s not the only option. Combining several cosmetic dentistry services can give you the smile makeover that you’ve been dreaming of. 

Cosmetic dentistry can:

Whiten your teeth

Coffee, tea, and even red pasta sauce can stain your teeth over time. There are a plethora of over-the-counter whitening products, but most of these are time-consuming and don’t provide the dazzling results you’re looking for. Zoom whitening treatments can brighten your smile by up to eight shades — and in just one visit. 

Hide chips and small gaps

Minor imperfections, such as small gaps or little chips, can keep you from loving your smile. But you don’t necessarily need braces to correct a small gap. Veneers can hide a plethora of minor imperfections, including small gaps. Veneers can even hide stained teeth that don’t respond to whitening treatments.

Replace missing teeth

A missing tooth can impact your oral health, but it’s also a cosmetic concern. Many individuals with a missing tooth grow self-conscious and try to hide their smiles. Crowns, bridges, and dental implants provide two benefits: They restore your tooth (or teeth), but they also enhance the appearance of your smile.

Fix gum recession

If you’re bothered by a receding gum line, you’d don’t need to hide your smile any longer. Dr. Theerathada corrects gum recession using the pinhole surgical technique. 

Boost your confidence

Cosmetic dentistry doesn’t just improve your oral health — it can boost your mental health too. If you don’t love your smile, it can keep you from engaging in conversations with friends or co-workers. When you love your smile, it shows!
