Now that summer is here, many of our patients are wondering what can be done about some of the cosmetic concerns they have with their smiles. As your trusted cosmetic dentist in Severna Park, we understand that you want to make a good first impression with your smile. That’s why we offer a wide range of cosmetic dental services to help patients achieve their dream smiles. Here are three cosmetic dentistry solutions that we would recommend to any patients interested in pursuing a smile makeover this summer:
We often recommend Invisalign to patients interested in treatment options for mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Invisalign is a discreet alternative to traditional braces. Utilizing a series of clear, plastic aligners, Invisalign allows patients to maintain their natural smile aesthetics while still undergoing orthodontic treatment. The aligners apply small amounts of pressure to your teeth and encourage them to shift into a straighter position over time. The aligners are removable, meaning you don’t have to worry about any dietary restrictions or adding in any extra steps in your oral hygiene routine. The many conveniences that come with Invisalign treatment make it a perfect option for patients looking to start on their dream smiles this summer.
If you are looking to make drastic changes to your smile, but do not want to pursue any invasive treatment options, we recommend porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are similar to dental crowns, however they only cover the front-facing portion of your teeth. Depending on your budgetary and cosmetic goals, you can get one veneer or a full mouth of veneers to address a wide range of cosmetic concerns like misshapen teeth, large gaps, or stains. Porcelain veneers only require a small amount of enamel removal to make space for the veneer itself. They are thin, translucent shells of tooth-like material and are highly stain-resistant with similar light reflecting properties compared to natural teeth. This makes them a minimally invasive and relatively quick treatment option for patients looking to have their dream smiles by the end of summer.
Many of our favorite summer snacks contain harmful staining agents that can dull our teeth surfaces. Additionally, beverages like sodas, coffee, and tea, which are enjoyed year-round, often contain just as many staining agents. It’s normal for patients to experience smile discoloration at some point during their lifetimes. However, this can deeply affect many patients’ self-esteem with their smiles. To help with this, we offer teeth whitening options to meet your needs, schedule, and budget including take-home whitening kits. Our take-home whitening kits give you the consistent professional results that you want to achieve in the dental chair from the comfort of your own home. Avoiding dark foods and beverages after treatment will prevent teeth from staining or darkening again.
