A beautiful smile most always begins with having great teeth. Stained, chipped, or broken dentition can ruin your smile. Although you may not have been born with a fabulous set of teeth, you can attain that great smile through the art of cosmetic dentistry.
Can I Afford Cosmetic Dentistry?
There was a time when the only people getting their teeth “fixed” were the well to do … but that is no longer the case. With many readily available cosmetic enhancements, your dentist will explain how easy and economical a beautiful smile can be.
Teeth can become stained for numerous reasons. Many foods and beverages can discolor teeth as well as certain medications. Lifestyle habits like tobacco stain as well.
Teeth whitening advertisements are everywhere … toothpastes, gels, rinses, strips, blue lights, etc. can be bought at the grocery store, drug store, or online. But if you are looking to acquire a product that has been tested for safety, comes with complete instructions and assistance for use, as well as assurances that the product you are using has been recommended specifically for you, look no further than your dental provider.
As a licensed provider, your dentist can make a product available to you that is powerful, safe, and effective. You will not get those same assurances from other outlets that sell teeth whitening.
For teeth that are deeply stained, chipped, uneven, or have unwanted gaps, porcelain veneers may provide the solution you have been seeking. Veneers are very thin, tooth colored shells that are made to be cemented to the front of teeth that require repair. Veneers offer a permanent solution for many cosmetic issues, and treatment can be completed in just a couple of weeks.
The resin used for bonding can cosmetically repair chipped teeth or blend away discoloration. A strong, tooth colored material is used that provides a long lasting repair virtually impossible to detect.
Caring For Your Beautiful New Smile
Once you have made the investment in cosmetic dentistry to achieve that great new smile, follow the instructions offered by your dentist to keep your teeth looking great. Brush and floss daily and see the dentist every six months for cleaning and dental exam to maintain great oral health and support your beautiful new smile.
