Smile Design – The Art of the Smile

Each one of us deserves to look and feel as good as we possibly can. No physical trait influences a person’s self-image or self-confidence quite like his or her smile. A beautiful smile speaks volumes about a person’s unique spirit and inner beauty. Indeed, your smile is like your fingerprint: it identifies you as the special, incomparable person you are.

If you are looking to improve the beauty of your smile through restorative and cosmetic dentistry, you will want to entrust your smile to a dental practice that understands that your smile is as unique as you are. At the Center for Esthetic Dentistry in New Haven, we are able to combine and personalize procedures into a comprehensive smile makeover plan that is meticulously tailored to your individual needs and goals. This is because we understand the art of the smile. Just as no two smiles are the same, no two smile makeover plans should be the same.

In providing you with a customized smile design, we take into account whether you require subtle refinements to your smile or something more dramatic, such as a full-mouth restoration. We craft unique smiles by sculpting the gums and shaping and coloring the teeth to complement your facial structure and features. If you are missing teeth, we can replace them with state-of-the-art dental implants or even a single tooth implant. Aesthetic flaws in your natural teeth, such as chips, cracks, irregularities in shape, and discoloration, can be corrected through the use of porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, dental implantsand dental bonding. Laser gum recontouring allows us to improve the appearance of a “gummy” smile with unprecedented precision.

Truly, whatever goals you have for your smile, there is a smile design that is right for you. For further information, please contact our cosmetic dentistry practice in New Haven, Connecticut today.
