I’m Embarrassed to Smile

Oct 16, 2018

You smile when you’re happy. So why does your smile make you sad? Probably because your teeth are yellow, chipped, cracked, or worse. Having an ugly smile like this can hurt. You feel embarrassed to smile, which means you’ll look like you lack self-confidence. Some people will even question your overall health. (“If her teeth are that bad, what else is that bad?”) Thankfully, the dental team at our Bridgeport/Trumbull Line, CT dental office can use cosmetic dentistry procedures to turn your smile into something you’ll love again.


What’s The Best Way To Make Teeth White Again?


While there are products you can buy without a prescription that claim to whiten your teeth, those are usually weak and need repeated use just to see some results. But at our dental office in Bridgeport/Trumbull Line, CT, we offer two kinds of professional-strength teeth whitening. Our in-office teeth whitening system uses a whitening gel applied to your teeth, which is then activated by a powerful light. The gel absorbs the stains on your teeth, giving you an incredible smile in as little as 30 minutes. For those of you with tight schedules, we also offer professional teeth whitening take-home trays, so you can whiten your teeth at your schedule. Both can give you back a bright, white smile in much less time than any store-bought system.


What If My Teeth Are In Bad Shape, Literally?


There are several ways we can help if your teeth have chips and cracks or are just irregularly shaped. With tooth contouring, we can gently remove thin amounts of enamel to smooth out your teeth. We can also apply a special resin material to fill in any chips or cracks with our tooth bonding procedure. If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, we offer Invisalign “invisible braces” to discreetly move your teeth where they belong. And for the fastest but most comprehensive cosmetic dentistry treatment, try our dental veneers. These ultra-thin shells are made to look just like perfectly healthy teeth. Once placed on the front of your teeth, your smile will suddenly look beautiful.


What If My Gums Are The Problem?


If your gums are too red, low, or high, we can help. Our gum disease treatments can help reduce the irritation of your gums, allowing them to return to normal. If your smile is too gummy, we can use a dental laser to safely and painlessly remove excess gum tissue, allowing more of your teeth to show. And if your gums have started to recede from your teeth, we can graft healthy tissue to cover up your teeth again.

At DeJesus Dental Group, we know how important it is to have a smile you love. With your kids finally growing up, it’s time to take care of yourself with our cosmetic dentistry procedures.
