1. Porcelain veneers
Porcelain veneers are a highly effective way to transform your look completely. They are popular with celebrities for their ability to create picture-perfect smiles.
Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells custom designed for your unique teeth. They attach to the front side of your teeth to cover up a variety of flaws, including:
- Wide spaces between the front teeth
- Cracks and chips
- Discoloration and stains
- Misshapen teeth
- Crooked front teeth
If you’re wondering how to get a Hollywood smile, porcelain veneers are the way to go.
2. Teeth whitening
You’re probably already familiar with this popular treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most affordable ways to brighten up your smile, taking them from dull and yellow to pearly white.
It’s a completely non-invasive and painless treatment that gets you results immediately. There are both in-office and take-home options to meet your needs best.
If you have chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, tooth bonding can give you the help you need.
During the tooth bonding procedure, your dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin to one or more of your teeth to repair the damage. It can be a more cost-effective solution than other cosmetic options, such as crowns or veneers.
4. Gum contouring
If your gums cover too much or too little of your teeth, gum contouring can change the shape of your gums be more aesthetically pleasing.
Depending on your needs, your dentist can remove the excessive gum tissue or restore gum tissue that is receding and exposing too much of your teeth.

Invisalign works using a set of progressive clear aligners that gently nudge your teeth into place over time.
The best part is Invisalign aligners are transparent and completely removable, minimizing the impact on your everyday life. Most people won’t even notice you are wearing them!
6. Dental implants
