Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
A couple ways people improve their smiles are through common treatments like professional teeth whitening or receiving cosmetic enhancements like porcelain veneers. Another common method for improving the appearance of teeth are placing white restorations like porcelain dental crowns.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic treatments because it is effective and non-invasive. Unlike a store bought toothpaste or whitening strip, a professional treatment will substantially brighten the appearance of teeth. This is because professional whitening formulas contain potent ingredients that can penetrate the enamel surface of teeth without causing permanent sensitivity. Once the whitening solution seeps through tooth enamel, deep stains that have formed will lift.
When it comes to those in need of a complete smile makeover, porcelain veneers tend to be a good option to consider. A veneer is a permanent enhancement that is bonded over the front surface of teeth to conceal gaps, stains, chips, and misshapen teeth.
Placing multiple veneers over the most visible teeth means that a person can enjoy the appearance of a symmetrical, proportionate, and beautiful smile. Sometimes folks refer to veneers as “instant orthodontics” because when a series of veneers are used, a person’s teeth can appear perfectly straight and spaced.
What to Expect from a Smile Makeover Consultation
If you are interested in cosmetic dental treatments, we recommend that you reserve a consultation with our dentist. A consultation is a great time to discuss your concerns and goals when it comes to improving your appearance. Many patients use a consultation as an opportunity to learn more about their treatment options by asking questions and taking notes. There is also a physical examination involved so that our team can determine the best treatment(s) for one’s needs.
