Chips, stains, and prominent gums can have a negative effect on the appearance of your smile, often resulting in self-consciousness.
Many people with these cosmetic issues are hesitant to laugh, smile, and speak around others, even loved ones they’ve known for years.
Dr. Jason Streeter in Colorado Springs, CO, can give your smile a makeover using the latest cosmetic dentistry treatments.
What Types of Concerns Can Cosmetic
Cosmetic dentistry at Streeter Dental can treat all kinds of aesthetic flaws that affect our smiles. Chances are you’ve experienced one or more of these issues at some point in your life.
Chips, cracks, and minor fractures can take away from a smile. These problems can be mended and masked using different cosmetic treatments.
Different cosmetic dentistry treatments can treat gaps, overbites, underbites, crowding, and other forms of minor malocclusion.
Intrinsic and extrinsic stains leave teeth looking dingy. Dentists can bleach discoloration or they can conceal these stains from view.
Misshapen teeth often lead to problems with symmetry. Dentists can use various cosmetic techniques to balance uneven smiles.
Tooth loss leaves noticeable gaps behind. There are numerous cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures to fill these spaces.

Cosmetic Dentistry Treatment Options
During dental bonding, a tooth-colored resin is painted directly onto the surface of a tooth. This resin is dried and polished so it blends in seamlessly with the surrounding structure. Bonding is ideal for concealing chips, cracks, stains, and minor gaps.
Professional teeth whitening performed by a dentist is faster and more effective than the whitening strips, trays, and toothpastes that are available over-the-counter. In fact, a single in-office teeth whitening session can brighten your smile by several shades.
Versatile and effective, veneers hide chips, cracks, stains, and misalignment affecting the front teeth. Veneers are durable and are indistinguishable from a natural tooth or teeth. Dentists can achieve total makeovers using just a few well-placed veneers.
Tooth Colored Restorations
Metal fillings and crowns are effective for fractures and decay, but they lead to smiles full of noticeable silver. Dentists now offer durable and safe tooth-colored restorations. These cosmetic restorations include composite fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns.
Invisalign® is an alternative to braces and traditional orthodontics. Instead of metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear aligner trays made from transparent plastic. Invisalign provides almost all of the benefits of orthodontics without any of the inconveniences.
Prominent gums and gum recession can both detract from an otherwise beautiful smile. Laser gum contouring techniques can reshape gum tissue safely. By adjusting the appearance of your gumline, your smile can be totally rejuvenated
Though often classified as a restorative dentistry procedure, dental implants have numerous cosmetic applications. These artificial tooth roots can support crowns, bridges, and dentures. The result is a realistic restoration securely anchored in place.
Dentists may need to perform two or more treatments to fully address a patient’s cosmetic flaws. This combination of dentistry procedures is known as a smile makeover. While the overall treatment process may require several months, a smile makeover can give you a brand new look.
