Are you tired of avoiding photo ops with your family, and instead always staying hidden behind the camera, because of how you feel about your smile? Whether it’s dingy teeth bothering you, due to years of drinking staining beverages like coffee, soda or red wine, or inconsistencies in your teeth’s shape or size that make you feel embarrassed, the good news is that cosmetic dentistry makes it possible to address these and other concerns, often quickly and with beautiful and natural-looking results. So, if you are ready to stop hiding your smile and instead to start proudly showing it off, both in pictures and your day-to-day life, why not talk to your cosmetic dentist about how you could achieve a more dazzling smile of your own?
What Is Causing the Most Concern?
The first step in devising any dental treatment plan, cosmetic or restorative, is to discuss with your dentist the concerns you have and your goals for your smile. In the case of aesthetic imperfections, there are likely several treatments that could help. The key is to determine which will be best at addressing your needs, while also working within your budget and any timeframes you have for treatment.
How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve Your Smile?
If you are bothered by simple staining, for instance, the dentist will likely recommend professional whitening treatment, which can generally lighten teeth up to eight shades over the course of only a few weeks.
For inconsistencies in the shape or size of some or several of the teeth, the dentist might recommend cosmetic bonding, which is a fast and affordable solution, or porcelain veneers, which generally take longer to complete but are also longer-lasting thanks to porcelain’s stain resistance.
