Late Summer Smile Makeovers
- August 30, 2016
Hello and welcome to another August edition of the Gentle Dental Care blog!
Around here, we see patients all the time who confess an apprehension to smile because of some aspect of their teeth or gums that they perceive as a flaw. If you can relate, we’d like to help you get a smile you can be proud to share with the world.
These days, cosmetic dentistry is easier and more accessible than ever before. As such, with today’s post, we wanted to outline some of our currently available solutions.
Keep reading to hear more about the possibilities and then be sure to follow up with our team to schedule your late summer smile makeover consultation. When you are here for that cosmetic evaluation, we will be able to come up with a plan of action that fits with your needs and budget.
Professional Teeth Whitening
You might be asking a question when you look in the mirror: what happened to my bright, white smile?
Well, there are many things that can darken your formerly pearly whites. Aging is one thing. And tartar can build up fast. Plus, your daily dose of coffee, wine, chocolate, etc. can also leave a mark, making the situation worse.
Unfortunately, the readily available over-the-counter DIY whitening kits won’t do much to improve the situation because they leave you in charge and provide you with lackluster materials for getting the job done.
Fortunately, our professional whitening procedures can brighten your smile fast!
This safe and effective method involves using an ultra-strong bleaching agent that is applied in a custom mouthpiece designed to cover every inch of your teeth. Your treatment usually lasts no more than two hours and you will experience stellar results immediately.
Even though fillings are considered a restorative solution, the newfangled tooth-colored composite materials make unsightly metal fillings a thing of the past. Now, if you have a cavity that needs to be treated and filled, no one will ever know because there won’t be any dark metallic blotches on your teeth!
Clear Aligner Orthodontics
Are you an adult living with crooked, overcrowded, or gapped teeth? Then we can set things straight in a more dignified manner than classic metal braces.
The clear aligners we use are far more comfortable than old-school braces. And get this: they are actually removable, which makes selfies more fun, meals more enjoyable, and cleaning a snap.
There will be no dietary restrictions or weird tools necessary.
Perhaps the best part is that treatment can be completed in only about 12 months and no one will know you are wearing “braces” during that time. No questions, comments, or nicknames will be directed at you!
Dental veneers are a super-versatile treatment.
These thin coverings are made of porcelain and are used to cover over stains, chips, gaps, and more. Veneers get attached directly to the front of your teeth after a layer of enamel is removed. This removal is a minimally invasive step and simply ensures that they will be a good fit.
The transformation happens so fast, that veneers are often nicknamed “instant orthodontics.”
