Has it been decades since you last really felt confident about your smile? For instance, were you still wearing jeans with bell bottoms and dialing a rotary phone the last time you looked in the mirror and liked the smile you saw staring back at you? If so, isn’t it time you do more than settle for a smile you don’t love? Modern dentistry makes it possible to address a host of imperfections with natural-looking and beautiful results. So what are you waiting for? Why not finally achieve the one accessory that never goes out of style – a beautiful smile!
Update an Obvious Restoration
One issue that can cause a smile to look aged and less attractive is metal restorations, such as old metal fillings or even dental crowns. Plus, these treatments can fail after many years of wear. They can also become uncomfortable. To help better protect your smile, and to enjoy cosmetic benefits as well, talk to your dentate about a more seamless smile solution, such as a tooth-colored dental filling or a porcelain crown.
Cosmetic Treatment Can Brighten and Beautify
Staining, visible wear, and even minor spacing issues (often caused by years of “forgetting” to wear a retainer) can also lead a smile to look aged and less than its best. Fortunately, there are a number of cosmetic treatments that can help revive and brighten the smile. Professional teeth whitening, for instance, can often help to address and reverse years’ worth of staining and discoloration. Cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers can be used to correct inconsistencies in the size and shape of the teeth, as well as minor gaps between the teeth. Bonding is faster and more affordable, since it can be completed by the dentist in a single visit, often in around an hour. Veneers, however, are made of more stain-resistant porcelain, making them a long-lasting treatment option.
