Fall is right around the corner. With the start of the new school year and new fall wardrobes, it’s the perfect time to take pictures. Unfortunately, if you’re self-conscious about the way your smile looks, you might not be too happy about that. Fortunately, there’s a solution with cosmetic dentistry in Conyers. Read on to learn 4 ways that cosmetic dentistry can transform your smile today.
1. At-Home Teeth Whitening
The whitening kits you find in the drugstore are nothing compared to the potency of that from your dentist in Conyers. With professional-strength bleaching gel and customized trays designed to fit your unique bite, this treatment provides long-lasting results in just a few weeks. Stop being disappointed with over-the-counter whitening kits and visit your dentist for an option that actually works.
2. Porcelain Veneers
If you’re looking to give yourself a complete smile makeover, look no further than porcelain veneers. These wafer-thin shells of durable dental porcelain are bonded to the front of your teeth to fix flaws such as:
- Severe discoloration or stains
- Cracks or chips
- Slightly rotated or crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Teeth that appear short or stubby
Veneers can improve the size, shape, and color of your teeth, all in just a couple of appointments. First, your cosmetic dentist will remove a small portion of your natural tooth enamel to ensure the veneers lay flush against your teeth. Then, he or she will take custom impressions of your prepared teeth. In a couple weeks, you will return to the office and voila! Your smile will be utterly transformed.
3. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding, also known as direct bonding, is an alternative to porcelain veneers that allows you to correct multiple cosmetic flaws in your smile at once. Also, it can be done in a single appointment. Your dentist will apply a composite resin material to your teeth that can be color-matched to your enamel. Then he or she will sculpt it into the desired shape until you’re happy with the results. Finally, a special curing light is used to harden the material into place. The results last for years before needing to be retouched.
4. Metal-Free Restorations
In the old days, if you needed a restoration, such as a crown or a filling, dentists had to use metals like gold and silver. These were quite noticeable in the mouth. Modern dentistry has come a long way, however. Nowadays your dentist will use tooth-colored fillings and crowns matched to the color of your smile to make sure no one can tell you had dental work done.
With all these options available to you, there’s no reason to remain unhappy with your smile. Contact your dentist today and get started on your journey to being more satisfied with your grin.
