Do you sometimes look at old photographs, and find yourself missing your younger smile? Over time, staining and discoloration can cause teeth to look yellow or even grey, causing your entire smile to look older than it is, and certainly much older than you feel. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry makes it possible to lighten teeth by several shades, and to hide noticeable wear, as well, leaving you with a younger-looking smile that can once again inspire confidence, instead of cosmetic concern. From whitening treatment to veneers, and many options in between, there are several ways a cosmetic dentist can help rejuvenate your smile!
Stains Causing Insecurity? Consider Professional Whitening
Unlike over-the-counter products that generally only lighten teeth by a few shades over prolonged periods of time, professional whitening treatment is made to lighten teeth by multiple shades quickly. In fact, many patients are able to lighten teeth by eight shades or more.
Another benefit of seeking treatment through a cosmetic dentist, is that if the discoloration is permanent he or she can still help create a brighter smile through alternative treatments such as cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers.
Inconsistencies in the Size or Shape of Your Teeth? Veneers Can Help!
Both bonding and veneers are popular treatments because they can actually help address a variety of concerns, including permanent discoloration, and also disproportionately small or misshapen teeth, and even minor gaps between teeth. To determine which treatment is right for you, or if a variety of options might be best, combined for a complete smile makeover, talk to your dentist about your goals for your smile, your budget and lifestyle.
