Are you gearing up for a lovely spring graduation ceremony? Is your best friend getting married this summer? Whatever milestones this year has in store, don’t you want to be ready for the photo ops with a brilliant smile? If so, now is a great time to schedule an appointment with a cosmetic dentist who can help you achieve a beautiful smile. From whitening to veneers, and even gum contouring, a cosmetic dentist can help hide imperfections and provide you with pearly whites you’ll be excited to showcase.
How Long Will Treatment Take?
Some people shy away from cosmetic treatment, for fear that it will take a long time to complete, or that it might cost a fortune. But many cosmetic procedures are actually fast and affordable.
Professional teeth whitening, for instance, can often be completed in under an hour, leaving patients with teeth that are noticeably brighter. Bonding and contouring can also be completed in a single visit, often in less than an hour. And combined, bonding and contouring can correct a wide array of esthetic issues, such as disproportional teeth, gaps, and permanent staining.
Veneers generally take longer to complete, but they can provide even longer-lasting results. That is because the porcelain used to create veneers is stain-resistant and chip-resistant, like natural teeth enamel. In fact, dental porcelain so closely mimics natural tooth enamel that veneers can be cared for the same way you care for the rest of your teeth, with a non-abrasive toothpaste and regular flossing.
At your initial consultation, be sure to talk to your dentist about your desires for your smile, any concerns you have, your timeframe for treatment, and your budget, as well. You might be surprised just how many options there are, and how effectively a dentist can enhance your smile.
