Are you embarrassed by the look of your smile? Does it make you shy away from photo ops with loved ones, or even going out with friends, all because of the insecurity you feel due to imperfections with your teeth? Would you like nothing more than to start spring with renewed confidence? If so, don’t head to the mall for a new outfit or makeup to update your look. Instead, talk to your cosmetic dentist about how treatment could help create a more dazzling smile. That way you can enjoy the confidence that comes from having a gorgeous smile!
Freshen Up Your Look with Professional Teeth Whitening
Many people notice discoloration or even deep staining as they age. That’s because the teeth are strong, but porous, which means the foods and drinks you enjoy can begin to stain them over time. Smoking can also lead to visible discoloration, that can cause a smile to look premature aged, and simply dingier than most would like.
Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can often help to erase years’ worth of deep staining, allowing for brighter, more beautiful smiles. Professional whitening can often lighten teeth between six and eight shades.
Address Imperfections with Bonding or Veneers
For other concerns, such as inconsistencies in your teeth’s shape or size, the dentist might recommend bonding, veneers, or a combination of the two. Bonding is completed using the same composite resin material used to create most modern dental fillings, while veneers are generally crafted from a thin yet durable dental-grade porcelain. Both can hide a number of imperfections and create better symmetry, for a smile. That said, bonding is often faster and more affordable, while veneers tend to last even longer, thanks to the stain resistance of the porcelain!
