New Year, New Smile: Why You Should Consider Cosmetic Dentistry in 2012
As the New Year approaches, we often decide on something we want to improve about ourselves. Whether it’s eating healthier or exercising more frequently, New Year’s resolutions symbolize a positive change—a fresh start. So, how about making a different sort of resolution this year? How about taking another look at some of the cosmetic dental treatments you’ve been considering for a while?
Achieving a More Beautiful Smile
The world of cosmetic dentistry is a dynamic and exciting field. With today’s treatments, we can correct a myriad of cosmetic issues you may be facing.
Here are a few of the cosmetic treatments we offer:
- Porcelain veneers: For those with teeth that are chipped, worn down, broken or discolored, Porcelain Veneers are often the answer. Dental veneers—also known as porcelain laminates—are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth. Veneers are advantageous over crowns for a few reasons: they tend to cost less and they don’t usually require the removal of much natural tooth material.
- Tooth whitening: We all want bright, brilliant teeth. Whitening Dentistry is a time-tested means of achieving a whiter, more beautiful smile. Patients with stained or discolored teeth often find this treatment quite beneficial. During tooth whitening, a hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the teeth using a custom-fitted mouth tray. Usually, you’ll return to the office for a few sessions until the desired level of whiteness is achieved.
- Invisalign: Traditional metal braces are simply not an option for some people. Thankfully, there’s Invisalign. Using 3-D imaging, we create a series of custom-made plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. These aligners will gradually shift your teeth into place, without the embarrassment associated with traditional braces. There are also several advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces. Invisalign aligners are more comfortable, and because they’re removable, you can brush and floss easily and are not limited in what you can eat.
