Have you ever noticed how easily you smile around young children? Their simple joy makes it easy for them to smile more, and you can’t help but smile back at them.
Science tells us that smiling releases hormones that boost the moods of others around you. If you can’t remember when you last smiled without feeling self-conscious, it may be time to consider cosmetic dentistry so you can smile like a kid again!
Dr. Lalani is a cosmetic dentist in Mesquite who offers the aesthetic dental treatments his patients need to achieve beautiful, one-of-a-kind smiles.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve My Smile?
Even if you’re generally happy with your smile, there may still be one or two improvements you would like to make. There are endless reasons why you might want to change your smile, but the cosmetic dental flaws we commonly address are:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Wide gaps or spacing issues
- Misshapen teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Missing teeth
Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening
First impressions matter and a bright, confident smile draws people in. Teeth whitening is fast, easy, and affordable, can dramatically boost the brightness of your smile and lift your confidence.
With customized take-home kits, you can whiten your teeth at home when it suits you. Complete with customized whitening trays, your kit is ready to use and lift stains from your teeth, leaving you with a bright, white smile.
Tooth-Colored Fillings and Bonding Blend with Your Smile
You may not think of tooth fillings as aesthetic, but the material we use mimics the translucent appearance of dental enamel. Dr. Lalani carefully molds the material on your tooth to create seamless and virtually invisible repairs.
The same tooth-colored material is also perfect for dental bonding, a conservative procedure that’s fast and easy. Bonding allows our cosmetic dentist to fill in chipped teeth, alters a tooth’s shape or size, or conceals stains and discoloration.
Porcelain Veneers Transform Your Smile
Porcelain veneers aren’t a luxury for the rich and famous but a cosmetic dental treatment that helps real people like you every day. Since they cover the front of a tooth, porcelain veneers are perfect for camouflaging broken or cracked teeth, slight smile misalignments, and flaws like wide or uneven tooth spacing.
Orthodontic Treatment with Invisalign Clear Braces
If you think it’s too late to straighten your teeth or don’t want metal braces in your mouth, Invisalign is an adult-friendly, discreet orthodontic treatment. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, comfortable plastic aligners to straighten crooked or crowded teeth.
Which Cosmetic Treatment’s Right for Me?
Since no two smiles are alike, people want different things from cosmetic dentistry. You may want the confidence-boosting effect of teeth whitening, while someone else desires a more dramatic makeover with veneers.
Because Dr. Lalani takes time to listen to his patients' needs and desires, he can customize your smile makeover to achieve whatever smile goals you have in mind.
