Summer is here, which means plenty of time with friends and loved one’s soaking up the sun and warmer temperatures. Whether you’re spending a day at the beach or taking a vacation, you don’t have to let insecurities about your smile hold you back from feeling your best. Your cosmetic dentist in Virginia Beach can give you the picture-perfect teeth you desire. Here are 4 cosmetic treatments that can get your smile ready for summer.
1. Porcelain Veneers
Veneers can revamp your smile completely because they can hide several aesthetic flaws using one treatment. When a veneer is applied to a single tooth, it improves its color, size, and shape. However, when bonded to the teeth visible when smiling, they can cover discoloration, chips, and gaps. You can have the smile of your dreams after just two appointments without needing to undergo an invasive procedure or lengthy treatment plan.
2. Dental Bonding
Dental bonding offers a lot of bang for your buck. A composite resin material is used to fix minor imperfections, like chips, cracks, exposed tooth roots, or stains. The resin is shaded to match the color of your enamel to blend in with your tooth structure. Only a trained dental professional will know it isn’t part of your tooth. You can enhance your smile in a single appointment with results that last about 10 years before needing to be replaced.
3. Teeth Whitening
Everyone’s teeth change color over the years, but you don’t have to live with stains or discoloration. Your dentist in Virginia Beach can get your teeth up to 10 shades whiter using a professional whitening system. You can have a bright, vibrant smile that you will be proud to show off in about 1 hour.
4. Metal-Free Restorations
Metal crowns or fillings can stick out like a sore thumb, but there are other options. Metal-free restorations are crafted to look like real teeth. They are a biocompatible solution to improve both the health and appearance of your smile.
Which Treatment is Right for Me?
Cosmetic dentistry is a big investment, but you don’t have to make the decision alone. After examining your smile and learning more about your goals, your dentist will explain all your options. They can even show you what the results of each method will look like using advanced technology. Virtual Smile Design allows you to “try on” your new smile before you buy it. You will know exactly what you will achieve before committing to anything.
Don’t let stains, chips, or gaps stop you from looking your best. Whether you are smiling for pictures, chatting with friends, or hanging out by the pool, your cosmetic dentist will give you a confident smile.
