Why A Beautiful Smile Is Important
A beautiful smile is important every day of the year, but especially during the summer months! Did you know that people with nice smiles are generally more confident and feel good about the way they look? A great smile can make a huge difference for your self esteem! Summer is swimsuit season, and you are already trying to look go, so go the extra mile for your personal appearance and give your smile a boost!
Option #1: Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are a great option for a quick way to make a major change in your smile. They can give you almost instant gratification by immediately changing the surface of your tooth and hiding any blemishes. The idea behind dental veneers is a simple one — we use a thin piece of tooth-colored, durable material to essentially replace the natural surface of your tooth. This will give the tooth a flawless look.
Dental veneers are placed by first removing a small layer of enamel from the surface of your tooth. Then the veneer is bonded directly to it. This is considered a permanent cosmetic procedure. They can be used to hide chips, stains, discoloration, fractures, misshapen teeth, and more. Veneers can even be used to correct minor alignment problems. Hollywood celebrities use this procedure to achieve flawless smiles every day … now it is available to you!
Option #2: Teeth Whitening
Another great option for improving your smile this summer is take home teeth whitening! We can create custom whitening trays for you to use with our professional-grade whitening gel at home. This method is proven to work wonders and improve the brightness of your smile! Results may vary depending on your specific situation, but there is no doubt that we can offer you brighter shade of white. Talk to our team about our teeth whitening products to beautify your smile.
Option #3: Composite Fillings
Need a filling but want a more cosmetic option? We offer composite fillings! While we do still offer amalgam (it’s a tried, tested, and true method of filling cavities!), composite resin fillings are tooth-colored and blend right in with your natural smile. We simply flow in the material, shape it to fill your area of decay, and then harden it with a special light. Composite fillings are a strong and durable cosmetic option, but probably not suited for areas of decay near the back of your mouth. Correct the cavities near the front of your smile and still look your best by choosing this option.
