You never get a second chance to make a first impression and, in social interactions, that first impression typically is made when you smile. However, many individuals are not happy with the way their smile looks. A 2012 study by Kellon Research found that nearly 60 percent of those Americans profiled would rather have a nice smile than nice skin and that people with straight, beautiful teeth typically are considered to be better looking and more successful.

Cosmetic dentistry in Knoxville helps those individuals who want to improve the appearance of their smile, using the latest advances in dental science, treatments, and tools to give each patient a beautiful smile he or she always wanted. A practitioner of cosmetic dentistry can use the principles and technologies of the field to correct any of the following aesthetic issues with your teeth and mouth.

Common Cosmetic Dental Problems

  • Discoloration: Your teeth change color naturally as you age, but unwelcome color changes also can occur depending on your diet or your consumption rate of items like coffee, tea, red wine, and use of tobacco products. A teeth whitening procedure is one of the most popular and convenient treatments available in cosmetic dentistry. In the time it takes for a lunch hour at your job, your local Knoxville cosmetic dentist at Choto Family Dentistry can perform a professional whitening treatment to yield brighter, longer-lasting results than what you can get from any over-the-counter teeth whitening kit.
  • Uneven teeth: Are your teeth different sizes? Do they appear to be of different lengths? By using treatments such as dental bonding or veneers, your cosmetic dentist Choto can give you a more even-looking smile. We construct restorations while keeping the alignment of your bite in mind. In many cases, this actually can improve the alignment of your bite, thus bettering the aesthetics and functionality of your teeth.
  • Missing teeth: Living with a lost tooth makes you very self-conscious about the gap in your smile, while also affecting your ability to eat. Replace your missing tooth with a bridge or, for the pinnacle of modern tooth replacement technology, a dental implant. If you have multiple lost teeth, then a bridge or dentures could be the best treatment option. We can even install an entire dental arch of teeth with our “teeth in a day” procedure.
  • Cracked, chipped or broken teeth: If you have a tooth that has withstood serious damage due to injury or tooth decay, your Northshore cosmetic dentist can install a crown to replace the entire exterior of the affected tooth. For situations of less damage such as cracks, chips or small fractures, the treatment options could include a veneer or dental bonding.
