The great news is that you don’t have to settle for a smile that looks older than you feel; cosmetic dentistry can help to rejuvenate its beauty! In fact, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn just how many ways a cosmetic dentist can help bring the youthful beauty back to your smile, allowing you to head into any situation, or school, confidently!
If Staining Is Your Only Cause for Concern, Professional Whitening Could Help
Staining is the most common dental complaint, particularly as a person ages. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can help create noticeable results. In fact, it is often possible to create a smile that is eight or more shades lighter.
When Are Cosmetic Bonding or Porcelain Veneers the Answer?
In the case of shape issues, such as teeth that have become jagged along the edges, or noticeably worn, cosmetic bonding can help. Porcelain veneers can also help correct issues related to the size, shape, or even the spacing of the teeth, by hiding noticeable imperfections.
Bonding is generally a faster and more affordable option, while porcelain veneers offer the benefit of longevity, because of dental porcelain’s strength and stain resistance.
