friends on the beachYour smile can have a massive impact on your self-confidence. If you’re embarrassed by your chipped, cracked, discolored, or misaligned teeth, you won’t regret investing in your grin. Summertime is for fun in the sun and hanging out with friends, but your insecurities can make you hesitant to leave the house and interact with people. Get the most out of this season by considering these 3 cosmetic procedures offered by your dentist in Carrollton.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are porcelain shells custom-crafted to fit over the visible surface of your tooth to cover any imperfections. There can be a variety of cosmetic imperfections that you notice each morning when you look in the mirror, but this procedure can just about solve them all, including:

  • Cracked and chipped teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

When you have multiple imperfections, such as the ones listed above, it can have a dramatic visible impact on your smile. In just a few visits to your cosmetic dentist, you’ll have custom-made porcelain veneers that look completely natural.

During the first visit, your dentist will help you determine if this procedure is right for you. After that, they’ll prepare your teeth by removing a small portion of your natural enamel so the veneers can fit over them without protruding from your mouth. They’ll take impressions, fit you for a temporary set of veneers, and send the models out to a dental lab to create your veneers. Once they arrive, your dentist will bond them and send you on your way!

Direct Bonding

Dental bonding is a more cost-effective option compared to porcelain veneers. While this procedure isn’t able to fix such a wide variety of problems, if you have gaps, chips, or cracks, dental bonding can help! Plus, it can be completed in a single visit, depending on how many teeth you need to be repaired.

First, your dentist will prepare your tooth and choose the color of composite resin that matches your tooth. They’ll place the resin and mold and shape it to repair the issue. After they’ve hardened it using a special light, they’ll trim and polish it. You’ll be able to enjoy a repaired smile in no time!

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments are so popular because you notice almost immediate results. Discoloration is caused by several factors like bad oral habits, medications, and consuming stain-causing foods and drinks. With in-office treatment, your dentist applies a fast-acting professional- grade whitening gel paired with an LED light to brighten your smile up to 10 shades in about an hour! If you aren’t on as much of a time-crunch and prefer to do this in the comfort of your own home, they also offer professional and safe at-home whitening kits.

You don’t have to miss out on summer fun because of your embarrassing smile. Instead, schedule a consultation with your dentist to discuss treatments that can help cover your dental imperfections. Depending on the cause of your imperfections and the procedure you want, you can have a vacation-ready smile in a single office visit!
