Are you in the market for a smile makeover? Your cosmetic dentist in Plano has options for you to consider. Some of the more popular treatments include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and Invisalign® alignment therapy. Your dentist will work with you to design the right strategy to reach your aesthetic goals.
Teeth Whitening: Erasing Years of Stains in as Little as a Single Treatment
Most of us can remember a time when our smile was brighter, our teeth whiter. Over the years the effects of aging, lifestyle choices, or medical conditions have a way of dulling tooth enamel, making our pearly whites less pearly and white. For many people, prescription teeth whitening is just the thing they need to turn back the clock, giving them a more youthful and energetic appearance.
Please don’t confuse prescription teeth whitening with over-the-counter products you may have seen or tried on your own. Only your dentist has access to professional-grade products that deliver superior results.
Are you short of time? Most practices allow you to choose between in-office whitening treatments or taking a kit home with you to use in the privacy of your residence. Either way, the transformation to your smile can be nothing less than dramatic.
Porcelain Veneers: Like Getting a Brand-New Set of Teeth
Sometimes teeth whitening by itself isn’t enough to give you the stunning smile you’re after. If that’s the case, then you may want to consider porcelain veneers as an alternative. These are micro-thin layers of medical-grade porcelain that fit directly over your existing teeth. They are held in place by dental adhesive and designed to last for many years.
Veneers are a great way to erase the appearance of stains, small cracks and chips, unevenness, and even minor examples of misalignment. They require only basic care, such as using a nonabrasive brand of toothpaste and soft bristle toothbrush. Veneers are a great way to get the perfect smile of your dreams in as little as a few weeks.
Invisalign Aligners: Corrective and Cosmetic Benefits at the Same Time
Millions of Americans struggle with dental misalignment problems. Left uncorrected, they can lead to chronic health conditions such as frequent migraines, back and neck pain, and even tooth loss. Misaligned teeth can also make your smile less attractive.
Braces are the traditional answer to misaligned teeth. But most people find the appearance of metal braces unattractive. That’s not to mention the many practical issues that can arise from this particular form of alignment therapy.
Invisalign® aligners were created to avoid these shortcomings. Not only can they make your smile more symmetric, they can also enhance every aspect of your oral health. Once the course of treatment is over you need only wear a nightly retainer to maintain the benefits for life. Those are a lot of advantages to gain from a simple, convenient form of dental therapy.
Nowadays there’s no reason for anyone to struggle needlessly with unattractive teeth. Talk to your dentist about your cosmetic options during your upcoming appointment. It won’t be long before you’re dazzling the world with your beautiful new smile.
