‘Tis the season for family to come to town, for hosting parties, and participating in fun activities. Holiday get-togethers with friends and family are just around the corner. You already know that your selfie-happy loved ones will be snapping photos as often as possible to document the many good memories you’ll create together. But are you comfortable with pictures of you and your smile showing up on social media? Are you confident in how your teeth will look in these pictures? You don’t have to hide your teeth when you smile; you can turn to your cosmetic dentist in Kernersville and make sure that your smile is ready to show off.
Whether from drinking a lot of coffee over the years or from taking certain medication, your teeth can become discolored and make you appear older. If your teeth are looking yellow or dull, you don’t have to settle on weak store-bought whitening products. These only reach surface stains and brighten teeth by two shades. Instead, you can take advantage of whitening trays that are made specifically to fit your mouth and professional-grade whitening solution for an evenly and dramatically whiter, younger-looking smile.
Do you have multiple noticeable flaws with your smile? Chips, small gaps, stubborn discoloration, and minor misalignment can all feel overwhelming to correct, but the truth is that you may be able to correct your smile in just two easy appointments with one treatment. Thin, custom-made shells of porcelain can be crafted in a matter of weeks and applied to the front surfaces of your teeth to hide the imperfections from sight.
If you’re worried about staying within your holiday budget but want porcelain veneers, you should consider direct bonding. Using tooth-colored composite resin, your cosmetic dentist can fill in chips and gaps, cover cracks and discolored teeth, and reshape teeth—all for a lower price than veneers. This cost effective alternative can be used to address the same flaws, and it often can be completed in just one appointment. Basically, you’ll walk in with an imperfect set of teeth and leave with a more confident smile.
In some cases, such as when severe decay or damage has occurred, the entire tooth needs to be covered with a new dental crown, or a missing tooth needs to be replaced with a dental bridge to complete a smile. If this is the case for you, you can rest easy when your dentist uses metal-free materials like porcelain to create your custom dental work. Not only does this mean that you’ll experience less sensitivity to hot and cold, but you won’t have to worry about your restoration standing out in your smile.
Before you begin your holiday festivities with family and friends this year, make sure that your smile is prepared and that you feel confident letting your smile express your joy. Make an appointment with your cosmetic dentist soon to complete treatment before the celebrations begin!
