Smile Brighter This Summer with Cosmetic Dentistry: Part One

Do you want to spend the summer shining as bright as the sun? If so, are your dingy or discolored teeth standing in the way of that goal? Cosmetic dentistry offers a number of ways to either erase or hide imperfections, like teeth whitening to address staining So why would you want to spend anymore time trying to hide your smile, instead of taking steps to make your pearly whites something for which you can feel pride?

When Is Professional Teeth Whitening the Answer?

If your biggest cause of embarrassment teeth staining or discoloration? In many cases professional teeth bleaching can be used to help correct the issue. Professional-grade products can help to break up surface stains, and then lighten the teeth, often by eight shades or more.

Even if the cosmetic dentist determines your teeth’s discoloration to be permanent or intrinsic, there are still ways to help create brighter, whiter teeth. Bonding and veneers can both be used to hide permanent discoloration.

Do You Have Other Causes for Concern?

If some of your teeth are disproportionately shaped or sized, bonding and veneers can be used to correct them and create a more uniform smile. Bonding is usually more affordable and can often be completed in less than an hour. However, veneers make a better long-term investment, because dental porcelain is more stain resistant than the composite resin material that is used to completed bonding.

These treatments can also be used to help hide minor gaps between teeth.

To determine which treatment is right for you, or if a combination of treatments is the best way to achieve your dream smile, talk to your cosmetic dentist about your goals for treatment, your budget, and how quickly you would like your smile to be enhanced.
