Some people put off cosmetic dentistry because they think it’s frivolous or vain, and nothing could be further from the truth! Smiling is a universal expression, recognized across cultures. It is vital to the way we interact with one another.

What Makes You Unhappy with Your Smile?

There are many common concerns that people have about the appearance of their smile and we can address and correct them all.

  • Discolored teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Small or poorly shaped teeth
  • Missing teeth

In fact, we have multiple options to treat each of these cosmetic complaints.

Discolored teeth can usually be treated with teeth whitening. However, your teeth won’t always respond to teeth whitening, depending on why your teeth are discolored. In that case, porcelain veneers may be a better option and give you longer-lasting results.

Chipped teeth can be reshaped with porcelain veneers or dental bonding. Porcelain veneers are the best option because they’re more attractive, last longer, and can also whiten the tooth if the trauma caused it to be discolored from within.

Worn teeth can also be built up with porcelain veneers or dental crowns. However, it is important that evaluate for TMJ and other bite problems that may be contributing to your tooth wear.

Gaps between teeth and crooked teeth are usually corrected with orthodontic treatments like Invisalign. But porcelain veneers can be used to correct these problems as well.

Small or poorly shaped teeth can be reshaped with porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or dental crowns.

Missing teeth can be replaced using dental bridges or dental implants. Dental implants are usually the better choice, but both are good options depending on your situation.

Reclaim Your Youth with SmoothLase and LipLase

Are you starting to notice age showing through your face? Aging is a natural process that comes with some great things—wisdom included! But there are also some downsides to aging that can make us look older than we really feel. Wrinkles appear, and our lips become thinner, changing our appearance. With SmothLase Facial Rejuvenation and LipLase, you don’t need to look older than you feel. You can reclaim your youth with these non-invasive, intraoral laser dentistry treatments.

Benefits of SmoothLase Facial Rejuvenation and LipLase

The benefits of these painless dental treatments are numerous. The difference from treatment to treatment can seem slight, but the overall change after your treatment journey is truly transformative. After all, you didn’t gain your wrinkles overnight! You can expect to reverse some of the effects of aging in these areas with SmoothLase and LipLase laser dentistry:

  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Mouth
  • Lips
  • Jawline area
  • Underneath the eyes

After your treatment journey, you’ll look in the mirror and recognize your younger self with reduced wrinkles, creases, lines, sagging skin, and fuller lips.

How Do They Work?

These cosmetic renewal treatments use a gentle laser to increase collagen production in your skin, which will smooth wrinkles, plump your skin, and give you a youthful glow. Your Anchorage cosmetic dentist uses the Fotona LightWalker laser system to gently heat the skin inside your mouth to increase collagen production. Since the treatment is done intraorally, no one will notice that you’ve had a treatment done. But they’ll soon begin to notice how great you look!

You may feel some sensitivity after treatment, but it lasts only a few days. SmoothLase Facial Rejuvenation and LipLase work best with stacked treatments scheduled three weeks apart. You’ll enjoy:

  • No downtime! You can go right back to your day following each procedure.
  • Fewer wrinkles, sagging skin, creases, and lines.
  • Fuller lips.
  • Discrete treatment due to gradual results.
  • A non-invasive procedure to reclaim youth.
