Are you interested in enhancing your smile? Whether you’re struggling with discolored or mildly damaged teeth, it can often feel embarrassing to show your pearly whites when talking or laughing. Since it’s also summer, you’ll likely want to look your best while having your fun in the sun. For this reason, your cosmetic dentist in Medford suggests three dental treatments that can help you achieve your dream smile!
#1: At-Home Teeth Whitening
Do you have stubborn stains on your teeth? If so, then you might consider getting teeth whitening treatment. While it may be tempting to head straight to your store for OTC whitening products, they won’t provide the professional-grade material as your dental team can. Your dentist can provide you with an at-home kit consisting of custom-made trays and bleaching gel to gradually brighten your smile at your convenience. By applying the whitening agent to your teeth over two weeks, you’ll effectively remove discoloration and improve your pearly whites by several shades.
#2: All-Ceramic Restorations
Having a moderate to severely damaged tooth can negatively impact your dental health as well as the appearance of your smile. Not only can it lower your self-esteem, but it can also increase your risk of further damage or complications. To provide an effective and cosmetic solution, you can try getting an all-ceramic restoration! Your dentist will be able to offer a durable and comfortable treatment to protect your tooth while giving it a shinier appearance for many years to come.
#3: Porcelain Veneers
One of the most popular ways to enhance your smile is with veneers. These thin porcelain shells can be attached to the front of your smile, effectively concealing most mild imperfections—like stained, chipped, cracked, misshapen, and misaligned teeth. They’re also non-porous, meaning they are highly resistant to discoloration. Your dentist will have to remove a small portion of your enamel to fit the veneers on your affected teeth. Once they’re successfully bonded to your pearly whites, you’ll be able to enjoy the dream smile you’ve always wanted. You can also expect them to last around 20 years with proper care.
If you’re interested in enhancing your smile this summer, then consider these cosmetic dental treatments. Feel free to schedule a consultation with your dentist, and they’ll be glad to discuss your treatment options!
