If you’re like most people, you can’t help but feel excited about the possibilities that the new year holds. It’s an opportunity to make improvements in several areas, one of them being the aesthetics of your smile. No matter what type of blemish you’re dealing with, learn how your cosmetic dentist can revamp your image!
Beautiful Teeth with Porcelain Veneers
Made from the highest quality ceramics, porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are bonded to your teeth to mask such imperfections as gaps, stains, misalignment, crookedness or crowding. Here are the usual steps of the process:
- A thin layer of enamel is removed to allow room for the veneers to be placed.
- Bite impressions are taken and then sent to a trusted ceramicist who will fabricate your new veneers.
- A temporary set of veneers are placed to protect your teeth.
- Once they’re ready, you’ll be invited back to your cosmetic dentist’s office to have the permanent shells affixed.
In just two-to-three visits, you’ll have a brand-new appearance!
A Way to Finally Remove Nagging Stains
Studies show that one of the initial traits a person will notice about you is the condition of your smile, which means that teeth stains could make for an unfavorable first impression. Thankfully, with Boost in-office whitening, your teeth can be brightened by as much as 10 shades.
For patients who desire a more convenient form of treatment, there is also at-home whitening that still utilizes professional strength ingredients to deliver results that are unmatched by the over-the-counter options.
Get Straight Teeth with Invisalign
In times past, the only way to address misaligned teeth was to be fitted with metal braces. There is now a much easier, more convenient and discreet way to see improvements with Invisalign clear braces.
The process uses a series of plastic trays to gradually adjust your teeth until they are properly aligned. The procedure starts by visiting your cosmetic dentist for a full examination. The professional will also capture bite impressions using the latest in digital imaging technology, which will be used to create a custom treatment plan.
Along with offering a more aesthetically-pleasing way to correct your bite, the clear, removable trays allow you to maintain excellent oral hygiene and eat all the foods you normally would.
The Psychological Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
Making positive changes to your appearance through cosmetic dentistry is not just about looking better. It has greater implications when it comes to your mental wellness. That’s because when you feel better about the way you look, it creates a positive mindset, which then triggers the production of “happy” hormones like serotonin and endorphins.
When these and other hormones are secreted in a healthy manner, it helps to decrease the inflammation in your body and boost your immune system.
So to determine which cosmetic dental procedure is geared to meet your wants and needs, reach out to your local dentist to schedule a consultation today!
