Everyone dreams of having the perfect heart-stopping, beautiful, gleaming white smile. Your smile is an important part of who you are and can reveal a lot about you. Not only does it help make an impression, it is a way of expressing yourself in some of the best ways. Today we are going to talk about using cosmetic dentistry to improve your smile!
If your teeth are discolored or you feel embarrassment when you smile it may be a good idea to think of teeth whitening. Teeth whitening and bleaching have become one of the most sought after treatments at the dentist in the past two decades. At-home kits can often make your teeth very sensitive, work only temporarily or break down the enamel of your teeth. It may be cheaper but getting your teeth brightened at your dentist can be much better for you.
A teeth whitening happens partly in office and at home, overseen by someone who knows all about your teeth and what you can handle. Typically it requires two office visits, one for the doctor to take a mold of your teeth and choose the right solution, and the second to assess how the whitening went. At home, you squeeze the treatment into your custom tray and apply it to your teeth, just like you are getting a mold done.
Another way to get a whiter smile is through various tooth repair techniques done at most offices. Severely stained teeth from long-term smoking or drinking may best be fixed by putting in porcelain veneers. Veneers are applied directly to the front of the visible teeth and they hide any imperfections like misalignment, cracks, chips and stains. Veneers require several office visits where the dentist makes a mold of your teeth to create the veneer and preparing your teeth by making them rougher to help the veneer hold. If you are wondering about veneers looking natural or not, dentists are able to make them a natural color, blending them smoothly in with the rest of your teeth.
