Would you like to improve smile? Dr. Valerie Martins and Dr. Sukhpreet Heer of Martins Dental Partners cosmetic dentistryin Beverly, MA share a few cosmetic dentistry treatments you may want to consider.

Cosmetic Contouring

You don't always have to make major changes to your teeth to enhance your smile. Cosmetic contouring, a popular cosmetic treatment, involves removing a small amount of tooth enamel to subtly reshape teeth. It's often used to eliminate overlapping tooth edges, remove points from the ends of teeth or shorter a tooth that's just a little too long.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening offers big benefits for your smile. Professional whitening in our Beverly office only takes about an hour, yet lightens your teeth many shades. Whitening is a good choice if you've noticed that your smile has grown duller over the years, you smoke, or your teeth have become stained from coffee, tea, wine, cola, berries or other dark foods and beverages. The effects of whitening last several years and can be extended even longer if you avoid tooth-staining foods and drinks.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery

Whether your smile is too gummy, or you don't like the appearance of your receding gums, you may benefit from cosmetic gum surgery. Gum surgery can be used to remove excess gum tissue with a laser or add tissue grafts to restore a normal gum line if you have receding gums.

Invisalign

Is straightening your teeth on your to-do list, but you're not sure how you feel about metal braces? Invisalign eliminates metal wires and brackets and replaces them with clear aligner trays. The trays are virtually unnoticeable and are removed to eat or brush your teeth. If you choose Invisalign, you'll receive a series of trays that you'll replace every two weeks. Invisalign treatment may only take about a year if you're an adult.

Veneers

It's usually not a good idea to cover up a problem unless you're talking about a cosmetic dental issue. Thin porcelain veneers attached to the fronts of your teeth conceal several common types of imperfections, including discolorations, short teeth, gaps, cracks, chips and twisted or oddly shaped teeth.
