Hollywood is nearly 2,000 miles away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a movie star smile in Minneapolis. Our Bloomington, MN dental office specializes in cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Weddell has completed level III of the aesthetic continuum at the University of Minnesota and thousands of hours of training to help transform his patients’ smiles.

Even if you won’t be starring in any movies in 2017, it doesn’t mean you don’t want to put your best smile forward this year. To schedule a consultation with Weddell Dental to discuss your smile goals, call us today at 952-679-1365.

Let’s talk about some common smile flaws and how to fix them.

  1. Yellowed, Stained, Or Dull Teeth
    If your teeth are anything but vividly white, you might feel insecure about the color of your smile. Fortunately, you have many options here for getting your smile bright, white again. The most obvious one is teeth whitening.Professional grade teeth whitening is different than the at-home stuff you might have tried that left you feeling disappointed and disheartened. For a white smile fast, we can brighten your smile in-office. In less than an hour, your teeth will be noticeably brighter and will continue to grow brighter with each treatment until you reach your goal shade.

    For even better results, you can whiten your teeth over the span of a few weeks. We’ll send you home with trays and solution that you’ll wear for a little while each evening. Before you know it, your friends will be raving about how brilliant your smile is.

    Teeth whitening does require maintenance and isn’t effective on certain types of discoloration, so you may find dental veneers are a better solution for your smile. Dental veneers are small bits of expertly shaped porcelain Dr. Weddell will apply over your natural teeth for a luminous new smile. Dental veneers also hide chips, cracks, and small gaps.

    Dr. Weddell can use same-day CEREC technology to give you dental veneers in as little as one appointment. He’ll be able to make any adjustments in shape, size, and shade on the spot, so you’ll leave perfectly happy with your new veneers.

  2. Crooked Teeth, Crowded Teeth, Or Teeth With Gaps
    As mentioned, dental veneers are great at hiding smile flaws and concealing minor gaps between teeth. But if your teeth are more than slightly crooked, braces are a better choice for you. Don’t fret. You won’t have to suffer now so you can be glam later. Clear braces allow you to upgrade your smile without looking like a work in progress. ClearCorrect clear braces use a series of clear aligners to transition your teeth into the right positions.
  3. Missing, Misshapen, Or Damaged Teeth
    Losing a tooth can be traumatic. Help yourself bounce back by replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant. Dental implants are embedded in your jawbone for a strong, reliable hold that feels a lot like your natural teeth.If your tooth is damaged or misshapen, you can correct it by covering it with a dental crown. Dr. Weddell does esthetic dental crowns while you wait with CEREC technology. For teeth that just need minor adjustments, consider teeth recontouring for gentle shaping. Or tooth bonding, in which Dr. Weddell will use a tooth-colored material to reshape your tooth.
  4. Gums, Gums, And GumsGums are just as important to a great smile as your teeth are. To treat gum recession that can make your teeth look longer than they are or to reshape an uneven gumline, we can refer you to one of our trusted dental partners.

    If your issue is with bad breath or teeth that feel loose, you could be suffering from gum disease. Gum disease attacks the bones beneath your gums. Dr. Weddell can perform non-surgical gum disease treatment to help you manage the health of your gums and keep your smile as attractive as possible.
