Don’t Hide Your Smile
You’ve likely heard the adage that confidence is key. When it comes to your smile, this has never been truer. Whether it’s the confidence to flash your smile on a first date or laugh with your friends without inhibition, the confidence to show your teeth is the freedom to be yourself.
Too often, lovely individuals find themselves second-guessing their actions because they lack confidence in their smile. They cover their mouths when they laugh, hide their teeth in pictures, and are otherwise embarrassed to live their lives carefree.
Thanks to tremendous advantages in modern cosmetic dentistry, this does not have to be your reality. You can have the smile you’ve always dreamed of, laugh without reserve, flash your biggest grin to the camera, and have the freedom that comes with confidence.
Read on for some of the marvels of modern dentistry that can turn your life upside down in the very best way!
This cosmetic dentistry technique uses an incredible strong polymer that bonds directly to your teeth to eliminate imperfections such as chips, fillings, staining, and more. Because it is so strong, you don’t have to worry about special maintenance—simply take care of your teeth using a normal, healthy dental hygiene routine!
One of the more familiar cosmetic dentistry practices is the use of porcelain veneers to correct imperfections. These veneers, which adhere to the front of your teeth only, are often used to make misshapen teeth more uniform, cosmetically align minor misalignment, and hide severe staining, allowing you to smile freely.
One of the most common insecurities people face regarding their teeth is discoloration. There are several ways to reverse the tooth staining that many people experience, including custom trays used at home, in-office procedures, and even internal whitening.
Custom-Fit Home Trays
One of the more convenient ways to put the shine back in your pearly whites, custom-fit home trays are designed specifically for you. Simply use them daily for a few weeks and watch as the whitening gel breaks down and removes stains that have built up on your teeth for years.
While home whitening takes several weeks due to the whitening agent that is used, in-office whitening only takes about an hour. Because it takes place in a controlled environment under the watchful eye of a qualified dental professional, more potent whitening agents can be used to remove stains. In-office whitening is ideal for those who want cleaner teeth in a shorter amount of time, have severely stained teeth, or wish to see drastic results immediately.
This whitening method is used in a specific circumstance—after root canal therapy. After such a procedure, a tooth may be darker. In order to restore some lightness and whiteness to the tooth, a whitening material is placed inside the tooth, effectively improving whiteness from the inside out.
This two-part procedure requires that you visit the dentist twice—once to have the material placed within the tooth, and once to have the material cleaned out and the hole in the tooth filled.
If you lack confidence in your smile or simply wish it was slightly different than it currently is, cosmetic dentistry can provide the change you desire. There’s no reason to go through life hiding your smile. Instead, visit your dentist and experience
