Woman with an attractive smile at the beachSummer is here, which means plenty of time outdoors soaking up the sun or traveling for a weekend getaway. Whether you’ll be spending time with family or taking your dream vacation, don’t let anxieties about your smile hold you back from looking and feeling your best. Despite common misconceptions, you don’t have to be rich or famous to benefit from cosmetic dentistry. There are options to fit everyone’s budget. Here are 3 affordable cosmetic procedures to give you a stunning smile for the summer.

1. Teeth Whitening

Don’t waste any more money on ineffective OTC whitening products. Instead, invest in lasting results with professional teeth whitening. Your smile can get up to 8 shades whiter using either an in-office or at-home whitening system from your dentist. You can achieve the results you want after just one appointment with an in-office method. If you prefer the convenience of an OTC product, you can reach the same improvement in 2 weeks with an at-home kit. Your smile can stay bright and beautiful for several months to many years, depending on your aftercare routine.

2. Dental Bonding

Dental bonding offers a lot of bang for your buck because it provides quick results without spending a fortune. A composite resin is used to fix minor aesthetic and restorative issues, like tooth decay, stains, or chips. It is shaded to match the color of your enamel to blend in with your tooth structure for natural-looking results. After just one appointment, you can significantly improve the appearance of your smile and your confidence using a method that can last for 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced. In some cases, dental insurance can be used to offset the cost.

3. Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are associated with a hefty price tag, but they can be the most cost-effective option if you want to correct several issues in a hurry. Applying a veneer to the front side of a tooth improves its color, size, and shape instantly. However, when bonded to the teeth visible when smiling, you can cover multiple flaws simultaneously, like chips, discoloration, and gaps. In as few as 2 appointments, you can drastically transform your teeth without having to spend several months in the dental chair. Your smile will look natural and can last for a decade or more. 

Which Procedure is Right for Me?

Your first step to a confident smile involves a consultation with your cosmetic dentist. They’ll examine your mouth and learn more about your situation to create a personalized treatment plan. They’ll consider your timeline and budget when making their recommendations.

If you are ready to have the flawless smile you deserve, contact your cosmetic dentist to schedule your consultation.
