Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures: Shine This Holiday Season

We hate to mention it, but the holiday season is just around the corner and will be here before you know it. Now that we are truly into fall, it’s time to begin planning ahead, particularly if you want a beautiful white smile for this year’s party season. So how do you begin to plan your cosmetic dentistry procedures?

Decide on Your Aims and Desires When Choosing Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

The first thing to think about is exactly what you’d like to achieve and any aspects of your smile you most want to change. Perhaps you are fed up with stained teeth that look yellow, or maybe you have always wanted to close up that gap in between your teeth?  There are a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can help you and which won’t take very long.

Teeth Whitening for Quick Results

One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening and we often use this treatment to help rejuvenate smiles. Here at the Cosmetic Dentistry Center, we use Zoom whitening as we find this system extremely reliable, safe and effective. Choose from our in-office whitening treatments that can take as little as an hour and which are perfect when you don’t have much time to spare, or ask us about our home whitening kits that use custom fitted whitening trays to gently brighten the color of your teeth over the course of two weeks. This system can also be worth considering as you’ll always have the whitening trays to use at a later date when you wish to top up the results.

Porcelain Veneers to Cover up Less than Perfect Teeth

Porcelain veneers are another extremely versatile treatment and these are excellent for covering up teeth that aren’t quite perfect. Many people will have one or two teeth that are chipped or worn or that are slightly oddly shaped, or that won’t respond to tooth whitening treatments. Covering up badly stained and misshapen teeth can help create that smile you desire. This is also one of cosmetic dentistry procedures to consider if you have any gaps you wish to close up or minimize.

Dental Bonding and Recontouring

This is another fast treatment that can often be completed in just one visit. Teeth that are slightly chipped or misshapen can be bonded with composite resin to create a more pleasing appearance. Teeth recontouring is a process that removes the tiny amount of tooth enamel from the tooth surfaces, helping to create a more appealing shape.

If You Have More Time to Spare Consider Dental Implants

All these cosmetic dentistry procedures can be completed within a few short weeks and are ideal when you don’t have too much time to spare. If you are looking for a more comprehensive smile makeover, perhaps involving dental implants, then you’ll need to allow a greater length of time for treatment to be completed. Conventional dental implants normally take a minimum of three months and often slightly longer as surgery must be carefully planned and the implants need plenty of time to heal before being fully restored. In spite of this, it’s still a treatment that is well worth considering as the results can be amazing.
