Your smile says a lot about you and it is often the first thing others notice. If your teeth are yellowed, chipped or just not as bright as they use to be, it diminishes the look of your smile. A dull, crooked smile can add years to your appearance and affect your demeanor. It can be hard to project cheer and self-confidence when you are unhappy with the way your smile looks. With advances in the dental landscape, cosmetic dentistry can give you back a bright, beautiful smile and there are many options to correct most issues.
Your dentist may suggest teeth whitening to brighten and rejuvenate your smile. Professional whitening can often reverse years of wear and yellowing giving you back a beautiful, youthful smile. Professional whitening at the dentist utilizes prescription strength ingredients along with other special tools to ensure powerful results that last.
Drugstore shelves are overcrowded with DIY whitening products. Unfortunately, the active ingredients in these kits, which are not prescription strength, are unstable and begin to break down as soon as they are shipped. The results they provide, if any, are unreliable and short lived. If you are hoping teeth whitening can give you a smile makeover, then you should opt for the professional results provided through cosmetic dentistry.
If you think it may take a little more than a whitening procedure to makeover your smile, then porcelain veneers may be for you. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that the dentist bonds to the front surface of your teeth to beautify your smile. They can correct chips, gaps, stubborn stains and even cracks or slightly crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers are a simple and permanent way to change the length, shape and color of your teeth. They are also easy to care for requiring only regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups.
Even subtle changes to your smile can make major improvements to your appearance and boost your self-confidence. Professional whitening and porcelain veneers are just two of the ways that you can refresh and revitalize your smile with cosmetic dentistry.
