Are you already feeling overwhelmed about all the holiday parties and other events you will soon be attending and hosting? Is part of your anxiousness related to the fact that you know your smile is not close-up ready? When you are worried about the look of your teeth, it’s hard to look forward to even special occasions. After all, how can you enjoy parties when you are feeling overwhelmed by insecurity? This year, why not get a headstart on the holiday season, by making sure your smile is ready for the merriment. Cosmetic dentistry provides a number of solutions that can help give you a smile you’ll feel proud to showcase all holiday season and beyond!
Is Whitening the Treatment Your Teeth Need?
If your biggest issue is the staining or discoloration of your teeth, then professional teeth whitening could be an ideal solution for you. That is because professional whitening is able to create noticeable brightening results, quickly, often lightening teeth by eight shades in a few week’s time, or in an hour, if in-office treatment is chosen.
Have You Considered Veneers or Bonding?
In the case of disproportionate teeth, or those that seem misshapen, even some minor gaps between the teeth, can be addressed through cosmetic bonding and contouring or porcelain veneers. In fact, these treatments are valued because of the host of enhancements they can help make to the smile’s natural beauty.
Both bonding and veneers can also help to hide permanent or intrinsic discoloration.
To determine which of these treatments is right for you, the dentist will likely ask about your goals for treatment, your budget, and your lifestyle, as veneers are more stain-resistant than the material used in bonding.
