The good news is that dentists and periodontists offer a range of dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. Several of them are relatively quick and pain-free. An added benefit is that folks with attractive teeth tend to practice better dental hygiene to preserve that new smile. Learn about some of the most common cosmetic dental procedures.
