Are you eager for the upcoming summer months? As you’re preparing for warmer weather, you may be planning a beach getaway, an adventure to a new location, or a trip to see your family. No matter what you have in store, you will make some amazing, unforgettable memories. When the camera comes out to capture the best moments, you want to be feeling your best and showing off a smile that you’re proud of. Continue reading to learn about a few cosmetic dental treatments that are perfect for summertime.
If you are looking for a more dramatic, long-lasting smile makeover, veneers are an excellent solution. After a small amount of enamel is removed to make room for the veneers, thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain are placed over the front surface of the teeth to cover up imperfections, like chips, gaps, stains, misshapen teeth, and slightly crooked teeth. They have become very common amongst celebrities due to their ability to eliminate multiple flaws.
It is natural for teeth to become discolored over time, and it can happen for many different reasons. Some of the most apparent include tobacco use, drinking pigmented beverages, and aging. This can be reduced with professional teeth whitening. First, your dentist will cover your lips, gums, and tongue with a thick shield. Then, they will apply the bleaching gel directly to your teeth. It will be left on for about 8 minutes, wiped away, and reapplied until you achieve your desired results.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
If your teeth are crooked, gapped, or otherwise misaligned, this doesn’t always mean that you need to endure a mouthful of metal brackets and wires. Instead, Invisalign is an option. This treatment uses a series of clear aligners in order to slowly move your teeth into their optimal locations. There are no eating restrictions, and no one will even be able to tell that you’re wearing them. You’ll have the straighter smile you’ve been dreaming of in no time!
This summer, perfect your smile! If you want to find out which cosmetic treatments are right for you, talk to your cosmetic dentist. This way, you can achieve your dream smile!
