There’s no denying it. There is something special about movie stars. From their perfect hair and skin, to a certain look in their eyes, it’s no wonder we have such a fascination. The secret is, however, it’s not always something they’re born with, and this is especially true for their teeth. If you ever see your favorite star smile and are blown away by the whiteness of their teeth, that’s often because of the help of a cosmetic dentist.
With the right procedures for your specific needs, cosmetic dentistry can help launch your smile out of this world, shooting for the stars.
Tooth whitening is one of the most common dental procedures in the world. That’s because it is one of the easiest and fastest ways to improve your appearance. A concentrated chemical solution, usually a form of peroxide, breaks down staining molecules that are trapped in your teeth.
Extrinsic staining can occur from food sources such as coffee, wine, soda, chocolate, and the daily wear and tear of eating. You can try whitening with over-the-counter kits from the store, but professional kits get better results faster. With both in-office and take-home whitening kits, you can remove stains more conveniently than ever.
Bonding is a popular approach to improving the appearance of your smile. Dental bonding can be completed in a single appointment, making it a convenient treatment option. It’s an inexpensive way to achieve many cosmetic goals. Reshape teeth, close gaps in your smile, and repair minor damage caused by a chip. Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic procedure, as it is quick, inexpensive, and comes with little discomfort.
Dental bonding starts with a consultation assessing the patient’s needs and desired results. If you decide that this is the right procedure for you, we can complete the procedure that day.
Though porcelain veneers are expensive, they are perhaps the most dramatic and long-lasting cosmetic procedure out there. Veneers can essentially give you a new set of teeth, helping with a long list of problems such as chipped or discolored teeth, gaps, crowded or rotated teeth, and several other issues.
Veneers are a thin shell of advanced ceramic bonded to your natural teeth. They’re so thin that they fit right into your smile and don’t add any unnatural bulk. By adding natural-looking porcelain, veneers cover stains that whitening can’t treat. And results can last for decades. In fact, studies show that about 19 out of 20 veneers are intact and in place after ten years, and five out of six are in place after 20 years.
