Now that spring is almost here, chances are you’re gearing up for some kind of exciting milestone or moment in your life. Whether your best friend is getting married, and you’ll be proudly standing by her side, or you will soon receive your diploma, you have plans to go on a dream vacation, or to finally open your own business, get ready for that photo op and priceless occasion with a smile that is equally magnificent! Cosmetic dentistry means you no longer have to settle for a smile that makes you feel self conscious, much less embarrassed. Instead, it can correct smile flaws and provide a beautiful and confidence-inspiring smile in their place.
What Cosmetic Treatment Is Right for You?
You probably already know that professional whitening is a great way to address teeth staining. But what if you have other esthetic issues, such as spacing problems or awkwardly shaped teeth?
There are two primary ways to address those imperfections, bonding and contouring, or porcelain veneers. Each has unique benefits, so determining which is right for you is simply a matter of weighing your desires for your smile versus how much time and money you are willing to invest in treatment.
When talking with your cosmetic dentist, make sure that you are clear, upfront, about your hopes for treatment, as well as your primary causes of concern. Providing sample pictures of what you’d like your smile to look like can be a helpful starting point, but the dentist will also likely examine your mouth to, first, ensure your smile is healthy, and then review any possible enhancements. You are far more likely to be happy with the results of treatment, and the customized smile the dentist will be able to create, if you first have a detailed consultation!
