Dr. Farless wants to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted.
If you’re unhappy with your smile or wish it looked different, you’re not alone, and there’s no reason to feel embarrassed. Over one-third of American adults feel self-conscious about their smile because of the way their teeth look. With the strong correlation between bright, confident smiles and success in life, it’s no wonder cosmetic dentistry (or cosmetic dental services) can have such a profound effect on patients’ lives.
Cosmetic dentistry has evolved heavily since it first started gaining traction in the ’90s, and it only continues to grow more popular as techniques and technology advance. The days of uncomfortable bridges and Chiclet-like veneers have long since been over, and now, dentists like Dr. Farless are able to offer cosmetic dental services right alongside general and preventive care.
Every smile is important, and no one should feel like they can’t share theirs with everyone around them. With Dr. Farless as your cosmetic dentist, you can rest assured you’ll get the best care possible in Greensboro and get on the right path toward a new, more confident smile.
Let’s take a look at some of the different ways Dr. Farless can assist with your smile transformation.
Porcelain veneers are the king of total smile makeovers.
Porcelain veneers remain the king of total smile makeovers for good reason. When it comes to complete smile transformations, porcelain veneers are able to cover the majority of both minor and major flaws at once.
Poorly crafted veneers stick out like a sore thumb, which is why Dr. Farless pays extreme attention to detail when it comes to the design, shape, and color selection of every one of his patients’ veneers. If you have chipped, cracked, crooked, discolored, or even missing teeth, Dr. Farless will be able to use his skills as Greensboro’s best cosmetic dentist to get the look you want with your new veneers.

Restore your smile post-extraction with bridges and implants.
Missing teeth can pose a significant flaw, but thanks to cosmetic dental services, you have plenty of options for restoring your smile.
As mentioned, it’s possible for porcelain veneers to fill the gap from a missing tooth, but if you have multiple missing teeth or simply don’t want veneers, Dr. Farless may suggest porcelain bridges instead. Porcelain bridges will match your natural teeth and also prevent your teeth from shifting.
Another option, which is considered restorative rather than cosmetic, would be dental implants. If you’re concerned with bone loss in your jaw from missing teeth, Dr. Farless may recommend implants in place of a porcelain bridge.
Bring balance to your teeth-to-gum ratio with gum contouring.
Do you see yourself smiling in pictures and think your smile is too “gummy”? Cosmetic dentistry has a heavy focus on the teeth, but it doesn’t stop there. Dr. Farless’s cosmetic dental services also include gum contouring and reshaping.
Gum contouring involves the use of a state-of-the-art laser to reshape your gum line above your teeth to bring more balance. Depending on your teeth and gums, Dr. Farless may also recommend porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns to achieve the best look possible.
Straighten misaligned teeth with nearly invisible clear aligners.
Crooked or misaligned teeth aren’t uncommon, but they can make patients feel uncomfortable when smiling and can actually lead to other problems. As an example, crooked teeth are more prone to developing decay due to bacteria being trapped in those nooks and crannies.
Dr. Farless has two options for orthodontic treatment: Clear Correct and Six Month Smiles. Both options utilize clear aligners and have faster treatment times compared to traditional braces. In fact, as the name suggests, it’s possible for adults to straighten their teeth in as little as six months with Six Month Smiles aligners.
Only have minor flaws? No blemish is too small to correct.
There is no such thing as a flaw too small to warrant a fix. If there is something about your smile that you don’t like, no matter how minor, Dr. Farless wants to know, so he can help.
For example, maybe you have some old silver fillings that stand out from the rest of your teeth and are visible to others when you speak. Dr. Farless can remove these and replace them with natural tooth-colored composite fillings that blend in with the surrounding teeth.
If you have a few surface blemishes on your teeth that don’t warrant porcelain veneers, like chips, cracks, or small gaps, Dr. Farless can perform dental bonding instead. This will help give your teeth a straighter, whiter appearance and correct flaws without permanently altering your natural teeth underneath.
Professional teeth whitening is also a fantastic solution if the color of your teeth is the flaw that’s bothering you. This service can also be a nice introduction to cosmetic dental services.
