Summer sure can be a great time to have fun with family and friends. It certainly helps if you are confident in your smile, so you feel comfortable sharing it with everyone. Your cosmetic dentist in Upper Arlington can address any issue you might have with treatments to restore your grin and confidence. Read along as they explain a few services that can have you shining this summer!
Professional teeth whitening treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. If your teeth are stained or discolored due to years of drinking wine, coffee, or tea, your dentist can provide you with a set of custom-fitted trays and professional-strength bleaching gel. After two weeks of at-home use, your teeth will be 6-8 shades whiter.
In-office whitening with Zoom! is also an option, as potent bleaching gel combines with a low-heat activation lamp. In just 45 minutes, your teeth can be whitened up to 10 shades!
Do you have numerous cosmetic flaws? Porcelain veneers might be the ideal solution for you. The durable sheaths of porcelain are adhered to the front surfaces of teeth, concealing any imperfection from view. With just one procedure, veneers can fix:
- Chipped teeth
- Severe staining and discoloration
- Slight gaps between teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Short or stubby teeth
Since the material mimics your original enamel, you can enjoy a natural-looking smile that will last for many summers to come!
Do you have just 1-2 teeth that could use some sprucing up, perhaps to correct a minor chip or thin gap? Cosmetic bonding uses a composite resin applied to a tooth to artfully reshape it and make any blemishes disappear. Your dentist can sculpt your tooth to perfection and then harden the material with a curing light. The painless procedure only takes about one hour and is one of the most affordable cosmetic solutions.
Metal-Free Dental Crowns
If you have a tooth that needs repair, metal-free restorations can restore not only its strength but beauty as well. The crowns are custom-made from dental porcelain or ceramic. Your dentist uses it to create a strong and reliable restoration that’s so lifelike no one will know you’ve had dental work! Your results will look and feel virtually seamless.
Summer isn’t here yet, so there’s still time to enhance your smile and show it off under the sun. Ask your cosmetic dentist in Upper Arlington about these treatments and soon you will be beaming with restored confidence!
