Do you spend your nights dreaming of looking younger? If so, it’s time to stop wishing on birthday candles, or tossing pennies into fountains, and to give your cosmetic dentist a call, instead. Few things can more dramatically affect your appearance or confidence than a bright, shiny smile. Unfortunately as you age, stains and wear along the edges of your teeth, can take a toll on your smile’s beauty reflecting to strangers your actual age. But cosmetic dentistry, whether through professional whitening, veneers, or other forms of treatment, can help turn back the clock, so to speak. By erasing years of damage, cosmetic treatment can help give you a more youthful smile that reflects how you feel inside, since that’s what really counts.
Know Your Options for Enhancement
Most cosmetic dentists offer a number of treatment options, the most popular of which are professional whitening and veneers. But bonding and contouring, gum contouring and clear braces are also ways to improve your smile’s appearance.
Often, the best way to achieve your ideal smile is through combining treatments, like whitening and contouring, or gum contouring and veneers. During a consultation the cosmetic dentist can ask about your concerns, first and foremost, and then your desires for your smile. Using these as a guide, as well as your budget, the dentist can help create a customized treatment plan to help enhance the natural beauty of your smile. For instance, whitening, bonding and contouring are each less expensive and much quicker than clear braces or porcelain veneers, making them better solutions for people on a tight budget. Veneers, on the other hand, can offer longer-lasting enhancement, making them a wise investment for those able to make it.
