The holiday season is coming up, and that means pictures taken with loved ones. You wouldn’t mind it so much if only your smile shone a little brighter, but you’re self-conscious of it. Whether your teeth are discolored, misshapen, or broken, it can make being photographed almost traumatic. Fortunately, your cosmetic dentist in Financial District has ways to transform your smile just in time for the holiday season and all the pictures that will undoubtedly be taken.
If you don’t know where to start improving your smile, porcelain veneers might be a good fit for you. These ultra-thin sheaths of dental porcelain are bonded to the front surfaces of your pearly whites to mask all kinds of cosmetic imperfections at once, like stains, gaps, chips, or slightly crooked teeth. In just two quick appointments with your dentist in Financial District, your grin can be completely transformed and look movie-star perfect!
Maybe you have a few chips, gaps, or stains in your teeth, but you don’t want to spring for porcelain veneers. This is where direct bonding can come in. During this simple, cost-effective procedure, your dentist will apply a tooth-colored composite resin that is shaded to match your existing enamel. They can then sculpt this material into the desired shape to make it blend right in with your smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
According to a recent survey, about half of Americans feel like they could benefit from having a whiter smile. Maybe this sounds like you, but you’re doubtful because you’ve tried over-the-counter whitening products, but to no avail. Don’t worry; your dentist uses a whitening gel that is significantly more potent than anything you could buy in stores or online. It doesn’t matter whether a lifetime love of tobacco, coffee, or wine stained your teeth, or whether it was another reason, like genetics. Professional teeth whitening can turn back the clock on your smile and give you a bright grin just in time for the holidays.
Has anyone ever told you that you have a “gummy smile?” It’s not actually your teeth that are to blame here – it’s your gum tissue. An excess amount of gum tissue can cover up your pearly whites and make your smile appear “gummy.” With gum recontouring, your dentist can use a soft tissue laser to reshape the gumline so that your beautiful teeth shine through.
If you feel like your smile leaves something to be desired this holiday season, visit your cosmetic dentist in Financial District to gift yourself a smile makeover.
