Is it time to enhance your appearance? You know it’s your teeth that mar your smile, but you’re not sure what you can do to make a change. A consultation with our dentist will afford you many different options that will give you the smile makeover that you’ve been thinking about for a long time.
Dental stain can occur for a multitude of reasons … neglect, food and beverage choices, medications, tobacco use … teeth whitening can eradicate much of that stain and brighten your teeth multiple shades in one brief dental appointment.
Your dentist may recommend you have your teeth professionally cleaned before undergoing teeth whitening to remove any plaque buildup and topical stains. You can then schedule your teeth whitening appointment. Your dental technician will do all the work; in about one hour you will see results that will provide a significant improvement to your smile.
If you are faced with crooked or misshapen teeth, unwanted gaps, or a malocclusion (top teeth do not correctly correspond to bottom teeth), your dentist will likely recommend a more extensive treatment plan.
If you need to correct an overbite, underbite, or crossbite but wearing metal braces is not a consideration, Invisalign clear aligners could be your answer. These “braces” are virtually invisible; they are comfortable (no metal or wire to abrade soft oral tissues); convenient (no need to visit the dentist to have wires manipulated to keep teeth moving – you can do this on your own simply by replacing your aligner every two weeks); and they are removable.
Being able to remove your aligners is advantageous for many reasons. You can continue to eat all the foods you love – simply remove the aligners for snacks and meals and replace when done. You can brush and floss daily without cumbersome braces; and your dentist can provide a thorough cleaning every six months throughout treatment.
Another versatile treatment option is porcelain veneers. Veneers are very thin, tooth colored shells that are bonded to the fronts of teeth that require correction. They can be applied to one or multiple teeth, are a permanent solution, and treatment can be completed in a matter of weeks.
A smile makeover will enhance your appearance … with proper care it will continue to keep you smiling with renewed self-confidence. Call us at Elegant Smiles today to schedule your consultation.
