You have been waiting all year for the summer months to come back around. Now that the weather is warmer, you can take a few more days off work, see your friends and family, and even plan a beach vacation with your spouse. However, when the camera comes out to capture all of the memories, you don’t want to be feeling self-conscious about your appearance. Read on to learn about a few cosmetic treatments you may want to consider if you’re looking to enhance the natural beauty of your smile.
Teeth can become discolored for numerous different reasons, like using tobacco products, drinking pigmented beverages, and aging. However, this is still something that bothers many people about their teeth. The good news is that stains can often times be lifted from the teeth with professional whitening. You have two options! You can see beautiful results after a single visit to the office, or you can undergo a more gradual professional treatment in the comfort of your own home. Either way, your pearly whites will be dramatically whiter!
To get a complete smile makeover by the time summer comes around, veneers are an excellent option. They are thin shells of porcelain that are placed over the front surfaces of the teeth to cover up any imperfections and flaws. This includes gaps, chips, stains, misshapen teeth, and teeth that are slightly crooked. Veneers can be placed in as few as two appointments. They are a preferred option by celebrities because of their ability to help patients achieve a Hollywood smile!
If you have misaligned teeth, you don’t need to settle for a mouthful of brackets and wires to achieve the results you’re looking for. Instead, you can opt for Invisalign. This treatment uses a series of clear aligners to slowly move your teeth into their optimal locations. You won’t even need to deal with eating restrictions. The best part about Invisalign is that the aligners are virtually invisible. They are extremely difficult for others to detect, so no one will even be able to tell that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment.
This summer, you can show off your smile with confidence by opting for one of the treatments listed above. Schedule a consultation with your dentist to determine what the best treatment path is for you!
