Cosmetic dentistry has gained popularity over the past few decades as more people realize their ideal smiles are attainable. There are still many patients, however, who avoid the dentist altogether because of anxiety about dental procedures. Fortunately, many dentists today offer minimally invasive treatment options so that you can still have the perfect pearly whites you’ve dreamed of. Continue reading to learn about 3 ways cosmetic dentistry can help without any need for invasive surgeries!
#1: Teeth Whitening
Years worth of eating and drinking take a toll on our teeth. Certain foods, beverages, and products are particularly notorious for causing stains over time. Whether you’ve been enjoying a cup of morning coffee every day or like to take the occasional smoke break at work, you likely have noticed some of your teeth are darker or spottier than others.
Fortunately, the damage isn’t necessarily permanent! Your dentist can provide professional teeth whitening that can clear years’ worth of splotches in just one visit. Once you have refreshed your pearly whites, you can keep them looking clean longer with a consistent dental hygiene routine that includes brushing and flossing twice daily.
#2: Dental Veneers
If there are flaws in your teeth above and beyond discoloration, then whitening won’t be enough to fully restore your smile. If you have slight chips, cracks, or gaps between your teeth then you might want to look into dental veneers.
These are durable, porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of your tooth and are customized to match (or brighten!) their natural shade. With veneers, you can visibly hide imperfections as well as protect already vulnerable teeth from further harm. While some preparation is required (your dentist will need to carefully whittle away some of the enamel before placement), there is no invasive surgery involved!
Veneers are great for hiding certain flaws, but if you want a straighter grin then they aren’t the best solution. They can hide slightly misplaced teeth, but you’d need orthodontics to reposition them. Thankfully, clear braces like Invisalign work to gently shift them into their ideal placements without the need for bulky metal braces. That means you can get beautifully straight teeth without feeling self-conscious about large brackets, wires, and bands.
These three treatment options can help you with the smile of your dreams but without the hassle of complex dental procedures. Call your dentist today and soon you’ll be showing off your newly perfected pearly whites!
