Is your smile ready for all the weddings, graduations, and vacations you’ll go to this summer? If not, you might be self-conscious about all the people you’ll see and all the pictures that will be taken at these events. There’s no need to worry when your dentist in Corpus Christi can help restore your self-confidence. Here are 5 ways that cosmetic dentistry can get your smile ready for this summer.
Brighten Your Smile with Teeth Whitening
The shade of your teeth is usually the first thing people notice about your smile. That’s why having white teeth is often important to looking great for the summer. Your dentist in Corpus Christi offers take-home whitening kits that are much stronger than the generic ones you can find in drugstores. By using these kits every day for about two weeks, your smile can become up to ten shades brighter.
Fix Flaws in Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are an excellent way to get your smile picture-perfect for the summer. They can fix several cosmetic problems, such as cracks, chips, gaps, and stains. The veneers process requires two visits. In the first appointment, a small layer of enamel is removed from the front surface of teeth to make room for the veneers. Impressions will be taken and sent to a lab where the veneers are custom-made. In the meantime, you will wear temporary veneers to get used to how they will feel. Return to the office once the permanent veneers are done, and exchange your temporary veneers for a permanent, flawless smile.
Quickly Restore Your Smile with Cosmetic Bonding
If you have several signs of wear in your smile, such as chips or stains, you might think that it will take several appointments to get them all fixed. Actually, your dentist can typically fix them all in one day with cosmetic bonding. Your dentist will place bonding material, which is specially shaded to match the color of your teeth, to any damaged areas of the teeth to conceal any flaws. This treatment is quick, effective, and long-lasting.
Seamlessly Fix Cavities with Tooth-Colored Fillings
Your dentist will use composite resin, which can easily be manipulated to fit the exact shade of your tooth, to fill in cavities. They will place the resin onto the damaged tooth, sculpt the tooth into the desired shape, and then harden it into place with a curing light. Tooth-colored fillings look natural and can last for years. Your smile will look and feel several times better.
Repair Damaged Teeth with All-Ceramic Restorations
Restorations like crowns and bridges can be used to protect and repair damaged teeth. However, when they are made of certain materials like gold or silver, they typically don’t end up looking like natural teeth. All-ceramic restorations are crafted from high-quality dental-grade porcelain that can be shaded to match the rest of the patient’s smile. You can protect your teeth and have a flawless smile to boot.
Summer is the season of photos, which means it’s important to feel confident in how you look, and your smile is a big component of that. Contact your dentist in Corpus Christi today to learn more about how to get your smile beautiful and ready for the summer!
