Cosmetic Dentistry Can Give You a Beautiful Smile for Summer

How can cosmetic dentistry make your summer even more memorable? If you have never thought to ask that question you are not alone, however, your summer can be better with a beautiful and healthy smile. When people think of summer, they tend to think of a season that is full of family, frolicking, and fun. This is a time of year when people all over the country gather to eat, celebrate, and enjoy the end of winter. In fact, over 80% of all Americans have planned a vacation this summer, heading out to their favorite spots, in search of new adventures, or off to see friends and family. The reality is that for millions of Americans summer fun is not enough to make them smile. If you are one of the people who suffer from misaligned or crooked teeth, an overly gummy smile, or discoloration that makes you not want to smile, you should know that cosmetic dentistry can help to solve these issues. By giving you a brilliant smile, we can help this summer to be the best one yet.

When you visit our cosmetic dentistry office with the hopes of making your teeth better, one of the things that we typically suggest is a teeth whitening treatment. There is nothing that can ruin a perfect smile faster than stains and discoloration on the teeth. Luckily, this is not a complicated fix, and many people are already using products to make their teeth whiter. Teeth whitening may be a simple process, but it works on a scientific principle that few people are aware of. Science tells us that natural light is white. The brain is programmed to see color based on the angle at which a particular object reflects the light. This is true in the case of teeth as well, which basically means that stained teeth are nothing more than a change in the way your teeth reflect the light. To alter this, we use a peroxide-based solution. The solution is designed to quickly penetrate the enamel, where it goes to work releasing free radicals. These free radicals will make subtle changes to the chemical makeup of the teeth, causing them to appear more translucent. Since light is already white, the more translucent your teeth, the whiter they appear to be.

Dental Veneers

As a cosmetic dentist, we have numerous ways to make your teeth look better. Dental veneers are one of the best tools that we have. They are super thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth to replace damaged, stained, or broken enamel. The veneers work to make your teeth a more permanent shade of white, correct things like overlap, and take away unsightly gaps.

Dental Crowns

If your teeth have suffered more significant damage, we can restore them with dental crowns.  In our cosmetic dentistry office, we place crowns around the tooth so that nothing can directly touch it.  They can be made to match your surrounding teeth, improving both the form and function of your smile at the same time.
