The aftermath of the Fourth of July celebrations are here: burgers have been grilled, watermelon served on large, American-flag decorated platters, and countless beers have been consumed under the light of a fireworks display. Just because the celebrations are over, however, doesn’t mean the fireworks have to end.
Fireworks are a tradition that take many of us back to those summers as a child, sitting around on a warm night looking up, mesmerized by the sky. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a smile with the same effect? With the help of cosmetic dentistry, that dream could become a reality. Imperfections in our smiles can hurt our self-esteem and the way we interact with others, but it doesn’t have too.
If any of the pain-points below apply to your smile, seek out a cosmetic dentistry and make your teeth shine!
Yellow or Stained Teeth
If you’re embarrassed by your yellow or stained teeth, you’re not alone. This is one of the most common smile complaints out there. Extrinsic stains, those occurring on the enamel, happen naturally over time and depend mostly on diet. When we consume foods containing a high concentration of staining agents, they can become trapped in the natural ridges of our enamel. Common examples include coffee, tea, red wine, chocolate, or any food with food coloring. As these staining agents build up, our teeth begin to gain a yellowish tint. To correct this issue, professional whitening is the best solution.
We can apply three treatments with a high-powered whitener. A light catalyst helps the whitener break down stains on your teeth. After the third solution has finished, your teeth can appear up to eight shades whiter. For an even longer-lasting gleam, this treatment can be coupled with take-home whitening trays.
Crooked and Gapped Teeth
We think of teeth straightening as something teens do. As a result, adults may hesitate before starting the procedure. Not only are braces expensive, they can be time-consuming and restrictive. Your schedule is busy enough without extra orthodontist appointments for the next five years. Also, who wants to deal with all that metal? Fortunately for you, if you have a crooked smile, there is an easier solution.
Invisalign is a fantastic new-treatment options which allows you to correct smile issues in as little as six months, without the need for metal braces. Using orthodontic technology, custom, you can wear BPA-free clear plastic aligners, allowing you to correct your smile on your terms.
