The weather has finally begun to cool, in most parts of the United States, and that means that the holiday season will be here before you know it. From gathering with family around a Thanksgiving feast, to singing along to sentimental classics with coworkers at your annual work party, don’t you want to make sure you look your best at these upcoming festive functions? If so, now is the perfect time to speak with your cosmetic dentist about what measures could be taken to make sure your smile looks dazzling just in time for the holidays.
What Treatments Can Help Create Smile Enhancements?
Teeth Whitening – one of the most commonly known, and most popular forms of cosmetic dentistry, is teeth whitening treatment. Professional teeth whitening helps create noticeable lightening quickly. So if your only concern is staining or discoloration, whitening could be an ideal solution.
Bonding/Contouring – if you are embarrassed by teeth that appear disproportionately small or misshapen, cosmetic bonding or contouring could help. Both are fast and affordable treatment options, which can help create more uniform and symmetrical smiles, often in less than a few hours.
Porcelain Veneers – for longer-lasting enhancements, many cosmetic dentists recommend porcelain veneers, which take advantage of the strength and stain-resistance of dental porcelain. With proper care, the beauty of veneers can be preserved for many years.
Invisalign/Clear Correct – if your biggest source of dental insecurity is misalignment of your teeth, you may want to consider the benefits of choosing an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign or Clear Correct. Both can help straighten the teeth, correct underbites, overbites, gaps and more. Yet they use more discreet technology than traditional braces, making for less conspicuous and often more comfortable treatment.
