Photo filters and photo editing make just about anything possible in pictures. You can look thinner, more toned, wrinkle-free, and have a perfect smile. Why bother changing your smile in real life when it’s easy enough to fudge the reality in photos? Well, you can’t hide behind your smartphone forever. When you’re in front of real people there is no hiding the imperfections in your smile.
Don’t burden yourself with retouching your smile for every single photo. Make a long-lasting change with cosmetic dentistry. There is a procedure for everyone, no matter what kind of unsightliness you’re trying to hide.
1. Get White Teeth
Sometimes even the old-school sepia or black and white filters can’t alter the look of your dingy and stained teeth. Professional teeth whitening uses powerful bleaching agents to truly blast away the stains that daily brushing and regular teeth cleanings just can’t shake. After a whitening, your teeth will gleam.
2. Straighten Your Teeth
There are several ways to get a straight smile. If you’re willing to make the commitment and put in the time – and especially if you have problems like enamel erosion from teeth grinding – a course of Invisalign braces can line up your smile. Follow it with teeth whitening and you’ll never look better.
If you want the “quick” fix, porcelain veneers will cloak every imperfection you have, and make your smile straight in the process. You can eliminate chips, cracks, gaps, stains, and more with one all-encompassing procedure.
3. Elongate Your Teeth
Super-long teeth look horsey and unnatural. Super-short teeth can make you feel like a kid. Porcelain veneers are the key to getting teeth that are the right size and shape for your mouth, face, and overall appearance. The veneers are customized and meticulously bonded in place for a perfectly sized smile.
4. Replace a Missing Tooth
If you want a true challenge when it comes to retouching your smile in photos, try hiding a missing tooth. Far easier to finally take care of an oh-so-obvious dental problem. Dental implants are the most effective way to replace a missing tooth. Placing a dental implant under the gum line so it can fuse with the jawbone recreates your missing tooth root. Top the post with a prosthetic tooth and you will have a complete smile.
Get a Perfect Smile for Real
Aren’t you tired of all the retouching? Instead of trying to temporarily conceal dental imperfections, do something about them. Unless you’re a supermodel – and even they aren’t perfect up close – your flawless photo filters will never fool anyone in person. Gain back hours of time by making yourself look good all the time with the help of cosmetic and restorative dentistry.
