As the holiday season zooms by, you’re more than likely to visit with family and friends, which means there will probably be plenty of photos taken. If that makes you anxious because of your smile flaws, then your cosmetic dentist in Grand Forks says it’s time to treat yourself to smile perfection. Learn about the different forms of cosmetic dentistry available for you!
If you have a cavity, you no longer have to settle for a form of restoration that leaves you with an undesirable, metallic smile. Your cosmetic dentist offers the following restoration procedures that not only help you regain the functionality of your teeth but also leave you with an aesthetically-pleasing image:
One of the common traits of each process is the reliance upon tooth-colored applications that help to recreate a natural appearance.
If you have a cracked, chipped or discolored tooth, then the direct bonding method can improve your appearance in just one visit. Your cosmetic dentist will apply a compound resin material to your teeth that will be shaped and hardened to fit seamlessly into your smile line.
In-Practice Tooth Whitening
A prime contributor to an unfavorable smile is tooth staining. Using the Opalescence Boost whitening system, your cosmetic dentist will remove any unwanted blemishes and brighten your teeth by up to 10 shades in just an hour.
At-Home Tooth Whitening
For patients who prefer a more convenient form of whitening, they don’t have to settle for inferior, store-bought options. The Opalescence line also includes a customizable take-home whitening kit that, with just two weeks of treatment, produces professional results that are unmatched by over-the-counter alternatives.
In the past, the common trend was to use an amalgam (mixture of different types of metals) filling to restore a tooth with a cavity. The result was a unflattering smile and exposure to possibly toxic compounds.
A new era has dawned, though, where you have access to tooth-colored fillings that both restore your teeth and allow you to maintain your dignity.
If you have gapped, slightly crooked, crowded, misaligned or stained teeth, then porcelain veneers offer a relatively fast solution. The ceramic-based, thin veneers are added directly to your teeth in the smile zone, masking any imperfections and leaving you with a dazzling new look.
When you take steps to improve the look of your teeth, you’re not just left with an improved image; you can expect to enjoy greater confidence as well. So this holiday season, treat yourself to the smile of your dreams by visiting Dr. Kern for cosmetic dentistry!
