My teeth are so tiny. Every time I smile, it looks like I don’t have any teeth. And I hate the little gap between my two front teeth. I want to enhance the size of my teeth, but I don’t want huge teeth like Hilary duff’s or to look like a horse. Please help! What procedure will be best for me?
A: You have three options:
Porcelain Veneers vs. Teeth Bleaching and Dental Bonding vs. Invisalign and Teeth Whitening
[column xs=”12″ sm=”12″ md=”6″ lg=”6″ class=”alignright”][youtube16x9 id=”fKVCxMA3TaY”][/column] 1- For a permanent solution, what you want is a brighter, fuller smile, you can achieve this by placing dental veneers to give you a fuller permanent smile, by adding bulk to the front teeth, and especially back teeth to cover the dark space between your teeth and cheek ( the buccal corridor). Now, if the porcelain veneers are white, they will already enhance the size of your teeth and make them look bigger. The whiter your teeth, the bigger they will look to the eye. Porcelain veneers are a permanent solution and will cost you the most; the length of time to achieve your results is about a week or less.
2- Second choice: Start bleaching and whitening your teeth, and after placing dental bonding., add bulk and close the gap between your front teeth. Cost is less than porcelain veneers, duration about 2 or 3 months to achieve the desired results, the con of teeth whitening and bleaching teeth results are unpredictable and not permanent, and color can change. Also, the dental bonding procedure due to the composite material can stain and is not as strong as porcelain veneer material.
3- Your third option: have orthodontic or Invisalign treatment and tooth movement, which can take about a year, and do teeth whitening, and you will need to wear a retainer to keep the position of your teeth stable so they do not go back. The cost is more than the second choice but less than porcelain veneers.
