The summer months are meant for road trips with friends, camping trips with family, music festivals and more. Of course, you will want to take plenty of photos to document and share all the happy memories being made – unless you are afraid people will notice the chips, cracks or stains in your smile. Minor dental flaws can be a major source of embarrassment and make it difficult to feel comfortable smiling or laughing around others. Thankfully, there is a range of cosmetic dentistry treatments that can deliver a complete smile makeover. Here are 4 ways to achieve a beautiful smile you will be eager to show off this summer.
#1: Professional Teeth Whitening
If you are happy with the shape and arrangement of your teeth but wish they were a brighter shade of white, professional teeth whitening can help.
In-office Zoom! teeth whitening uses a hydrogen peroxide-based gel and a special light that enhances the whitening process to rapidly deliver stunning results. After just one hour in the dentist’s chair, you will have a beautiful white smile that would not look out of place on a Hollywood red carpet!
#2: Direct Bonding
For direct bonding treatment, a dentist applies tooth-colored composite resin to a natural tooth to restore damaged or missing enamel. The resin can be perfectly sculpted to improve a tooth’s shape, size and color. Dental bonding is quick and cost-effective – in less than an hour, you can walk out of the dentist’s office with a rejuvenated smile!
Dental bonding is best-suited to address:
- Chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Fractured teeth
- Decayed teeth
#3: Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-designed shells that are placed on the front of teeth to transform chipped, broken or misshapen teeth. From improving a single tooth to rejuvenating an entire smile, porcelain veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution thanks to the following benefits:
- Natural appearance – Veneers have a natural, translucent appearance that allows them to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile
- Dazzling smile – Porcelain veneers are more resistant to stains from coffee and other dark foods and drinks than natural enamel
- Immediate results – Walk out of the dentist’s office with your new improved smile as soon as the placement procedure is complete
- Long-lasting solution – With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for a decade or more!
#4: Invisalign Clear Braces
Would you smile for a selfie if your mouth was full of metal? Fortunately, with Invisalign clear braces you can straighten your teeth without the unsightly metal brackets and wires of conventional braces.
Instead, Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to slowly straighten one’s smile. The aligners are custom-designed to fit comfortably in your mouth and apply the precise amount of pressure needed to gradually move teeth into the desired position.
Invisalign is an excellent, discreet way to correct:
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Mild overbites or underbites
Are you ready to fully embrace the summer? There is still time to rejuvenate your smile by partnering with a cosmetic dentist – just pick up the phone and call today!
