With spring in full swing, people are taking action to improve their appearances just before summer. Gyms will fill up with people eager to regain their beach bodies, salons will be booked for hair and nail appointments and dentist offices will schedule appointments for those who are looking to increase the shine of their smile.
If you’re someone who is interested in touching up your teeth a little bit before summer, there are a few cosmetic dentistry services that can leave your smile gleaming beyond just a routine teeth cleaning.
Spring Smile Options
Dental bonding is a great solution if you’re looking to correct gaps, cracks or decay in teeth. This is done by drilling out decayed areas of a tooth, and using a composite resin that is molded and sculpted to fit the needs of your teeth.
The resin is attached using an adhesive gel, hardened using an ultraviolet light, and polished to give your bonding a nice, polished look. What’s even better about bonding is that it’s an affordable option for decayed, cracked or damaged teeth.
Teeth Whitening And Bleaching
Teeth whitening is a common option that leads to whiter, brighter smiles. Teeth easily become stained from certain foods and drinks, and whitening is a solution to that common problem.
Teeth whitening often involves creating an impression of a patient’s teeth, which are used to create customized whitening trays that can be used multiple times to both whiten and keep teeth white.
Veneers are a less intrusive option for cosmetic dentistry purposes than crowns or braces, and can rectify multiple cosmetic dental problems. Veneers are are individualized covers often made from porcelain to correct small gaps, alignment issues, chips and discoloration.
Veneers applied to the front of a tooth and improve the appearance of teeth while providing a natural look. They are applied using a dental adhesive and do not usually require a local anesthetic.
A trip to the dentist this spring to freshen up your smile is a great choice for giving your teeth a touch-up, because there is no better investment than a shiny, happy smile.
