If you’re like most people, there’s probably something that bothers you a little bit about your smile. However, you may not want to dive headfirst into the world of cosmetic dentistry, especially if you haven’t had much dental work done in the past.

You might be interested to hear that your dentist has myriad options available to you that are both effective and non-invasive. Here are some interesting examples.

How Invasive Is Teeth Whitening?

Just about everyone wishes that they had a little bit of a brighter smile, which is part of the reason why professional teeth whitening is so popular. Using a specialized whitening gel, your dentist can give you a smile up to eight shades whiter without any risk of discomfort.

The process is fast, easy, and doesn’t require your dentist to do anything beneath the surface of the tooth, making it a great way to dip your toe into the world of cosmetic dentistry.

How Invasive Is Direct Bonding?

If you’re someone who has chipped or cracked a tooth, you’re probably well aware of what an impact that can make on your overall appearance. As it turns out, the opposite is also true—repairing small areas of damage can completely transform your smile.

Direct bonding involves layering a tooth-colored resin onto your tooth and hardening it into place. It sounds simple, but via this method your dentist can cover up all kinds of damage, from chips to discoloration. The procedure is painless, inexpensive, and can be completed within just a single appointment.

The Importance of Preventive Care

At the end of the day, the least invasive way to handle oral health problems is to prevent them from happening in the first place. There’s a lot you can do on your own to make that possible, but even if your dental hygiene is immaculate, there’s only so much that you can do on your own.

If you want to improve the look, feel, and health of your smile without invasive dental treatments, the best thing you can do is to make biannual visits to the dentist’s office.
