Did you know that just the act of smiling can send signals to your brain to improve your mood? This means that you could fake a smile and end up feeling good enough to actually smile. If you are embarrassed or insecure about your smile, however, you may feel less inclined to show off your smile. You could be losing these mood-boosting benefits. A smile that makes you feel more confident can help you find confidence for career improvement, stronger relationships, and so on. If you live in Mansfield, Texas and you are wanting to update the appearance of your smile, talk to our team today. 

Brightening the Shade

One of the most common things that make someone feel a little less confident about their smile is a dull, yellow shade of teeth. Whitening your teeth with your dentist’s help can allow you to get a bright smile fast all while monitoring the potential side effects like enamel erosion, sensitivity, or gum irritation that can happen with DIY whitening treatments. Your dentist can also determine if a whitening treatment will work on your particular type of discoloration. If the stains come from inside the tooth, no form of external whitening can remove it. In the cases of internal discoloration (also known as intrinsic), another form of cosmetic treatment may be needed, such as veneers or cosmetic bonding.

Creating Symmetry

Another common thing that can make someone feel insecure about their smile is asymmetry. If you have one tooth with a jagged edge, it can make the whole smile look off balance. Unevenly spaced, sized, or shaped teeth can all usually be addressed. Porcelain veneers can update an entire smile with customized porcelain shells. Cosmetic bonding is a good option to address just one or a few teeth by applying a composite resin directly to the enamel.
