When you think of cosmetic dentistry do you think of expensive, complex procedures? Dental treatment can be expensive, and it can be involved, but it doesn’t have to be. There are always new and improved cosmetic procedures being developed that are less costly, less invasive, and quicker. If you are not up for a complete smile makeover, that doesn’t mean you can’t get a smile makeover. Here are some quick and easy cosmetic fixes that can help improve your smile.
As you age your teeth can become stained by tobacco use, medications, and some of your favorite foods and beverages including coffee, tea, and chocolate. Teeth whitening can give you a brighter smile that will impress employers, partners, and strangers. Research has shown that an esthetic smile can get you better jobs, higher pay, more friends, and more dates. Although, Dr. James Fondriest does not perform in-office whitening he does offer a home bleaching kit that works while you sleep and is gentler on your teeth.
Cosmetic bonding is fast, easy, and inexpensive. It can be used to treat a number of issues including tooth discoloration, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, broken teeth, misshapen teeth, worn teeth, and gaps or spaces between teeth. Bonding is also used to fill small cavities and to protect the exposed root of a tooth due to a receding gumline. Cosmetic bonding usually can be done in one office visit and can last for several years.
