Have you grown embarrassed by the look of your smile? In fact, are you worried about the upcoming holiday season, because you know your smile isn’t ready for the real-live face time you will soon be sharing with those you love, much less the selfies that will be posted all over social media? If so, now is a great time to explore the many ways a cosmetic dentist could help ensure your smile is beautiful just in time for the festive holiday season.
Is Staining Your Biggest Concern?
If your only esthetic issue is tooth discoloration or staining, then professional teeth whitening is a great option. While there are many over-the-counter products that claim they can lighten teeth, few are able to effectively lighten teeth by more than a few shades, and even fewer are able to do so quickly.
Professional whitening, on the other hand, uses professional-grade products to help lighten teeth by several noticeable shades, often in two week’s treatment, or even less, particularly if in-office treatment is chosen.
Do You Have Insecurities Because of the Size or Shape of Some Teeth?
If you are embarrassed by inconsistencies in the size or shape of some of your teeth, there are a number of different treatment options available that can help. Cosmetic bonding and contouring are two fast and affordable options, for instance, both of which can be completed in less than an hour, in most cases. They can help create natural-looking enhancements that improve the symmetry of the smile.
Porcelain veneers are another great option, though, and they can create even longer-lasting results, thanks to porcelain’s durability and stain resistance.
