The holidays take a lot of planning for most of us. We do our best to be prepared for seasonal traveling, catching up with friends and family, cooking the traditional holiday meal, and braving the mall to find the perfect gift. While you may feel on top of your to-do list, how prepared is your smile? Many people are embarrassed or insecure about how their teeth look, and studies indicate that 28% of people refuse to smile in pictures entirely because of it. This year, gift yourself the smile you’ve always wanted and see your cosmetic dentist in Mesquite. Cosmetic services like teeth whitening, bonding, tooth-colored fillings, and porcelain veneers can give you a picture-perfect smile just in time for the holidays!
Some people don’t realize how discolored their teeth have gotten until they see their picture on the outgoing Christmas card! You could spend hours browsing through hundreds of over-the-counter teeth whiteners and still end up with subpar results and irritated gums.
Instead, get your teeth professionally whitened by your dentist in as little as a single appointment, or whiten your teeth on your own time with a take-home treatment plan designed by your dentist. Professional teeth whitening can give you better results with no tooth sensitivity or gum irritation in a fraction of the time!
Bonding and Tooth-Colored Fillings
If a chip or crack is what’s keeping you from showing off your holly-jolly smile, a single trip to your cosmetic dentist can rebuild your confidence. Direct bonding uses a natural-looking composite resin to fill in cracked or chipped tooth enamel seamlessly. It can reshape your tooth to create a flawless smile!
A front tooth with a cavity or other damage can be painful as well as unsightly. Tooth-colored fillings strengthen broken tooth structure with minimal impact on appearance. These metal-free restorations are durable and blend in with your surrounding teeth for unnoticeable support.
Do you sometimes wish you could completely redo your smile? Maybe your teeth have larger chips or cracks, darker discolorations or stains, or slight gaps and misalignments that direct bonding and tooth-colored fillings can’t fully improve. If that sounds familiar, give yourself the gift of porcelain veneers and get a silver-screen ready smile!
Porcelain veneers are famously used to give movie stars like Morgan Freeman, Miley Cyrus, Tom Cruise and many more perfect smiles for the big screen, and now you can smile like the stars too! These ultra-thin, custom made shells of porcelain completely cover the front of your teeth, hiding any cosmetic imperfections with a flawless veneer. In just two appointments with your dentist, you can walk away with a set of pearly whites that you can’t wait to show off!
Take a little time this year to make sure you and your smile are ready for the holidays! A quick visit or two to your Mesquite dentist could give you that picture-perfect smile you’ve always wanted.
