Does Valentine’s Day have you thinking about romance, particularly putting yourself back out into the world of dating? Before you start looking for that special someone, though, do you feel compelled to do something about your smile? When you feel embarrassed by imperfections or noticeable flaws in your smile, it can be difficult to feel confident, especially when meeting new people. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry offers some great solutions for hiding imperfections and enhancing smiles.
What Can Be Done About Deep Discoloration?
If all you are hoping to accomplish is lightened teeth, professional teeth whitening could be a great option. It is fast and efficient at helping to brighten smiles, often by eight or more shades through a single course of treatment. For many, this involves two week’s of using products in the comfort of their own home, though most cosmetic dentists also offer an in-office treatment, that can provide even faster results!
Want to Correct a Host of Imperfections?
If you’re concerned or embarrassed by inconsistencies in your teeth, such as a few that seem small or misshapen, cosmetic bonding is a great option. That’s because bonding can be completed in the dentist’s office, often in an hour or two, during a single office visit. This is done by carefully sculpting composite resin material onto the teeth, in order to hide any noticeable imperfections. In addition to correcting inconsistencies in size or shape, cosmetic bonding can also be used to hide minor gaps between teeth, and to cover any permanent or intrinsic stains or discoloration.
