When was the last time you looked in the mirror, and felt proud of the smile staring back at you? Can you even recall the last time you went out with friends and found yourself confidently laughing and smiling, without fear that they would fixate on the noticeable imperfections in your smile? While it is impossible to turn back the clock, cosmetic dentistry makes it possible to improve your confidence, by hiding common imperfections and revealing more of your smile’s natural beauty. It can also help to rejuvenate your smile, and that can make you feel and look rejuvenated, and simply more confident!
Address Discoloration with Professional Whitening
If your primary concern is how stained or discolored your teeth look, professional whitening offers a fast solution. Unlike over-the-counter products, which often take extended periods of time to show noticeable results, professional whitening can often lighten teeth in a few weeks or less. Perhaps best of all, it can help to lighten teeth by eight shades, for many patients, which makes for real, noticeable rejuvenation of the smile.
Hide Other Imperfections with Bonding or Veneers
For other imperfections, such as oddly shaped or sized teeth, cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers are great ways to improve the symmetry. These treatments can also hide permanent staining, or even minor gaps between the teeth. Bonding is a particularly fast option, since it can often be completed in under a few hours at the dentist’s office. Veneers generally take longer to be completed, however they offer even more long-lasting results, because dental-grade porcelain is incredibly strong and more stain resistant than the material used to create bonding enhancements.
