Is Cosmetic Dentistry What You Really Want?Are you feeling stumped about what to ask Santa for this year? Could it be because you already know what you really want, but you’re worried that not even holiday magic could make it happen? If what your heart really desires, this year, is a more beautiful smile, why not talk to a cosmetic dentist? There are a number of cosmetic treatments available, which can help to hide a host of esthetic concerns, from permanent staining to inconsistencies in the size or shape of the teeth.

Enjoy Beautiful Smile Enhancements

Professional teeth whitening is one of the most common forms of cosmetic dentistry, likely because stains and discoloration are among the most common esthetic concerns faced by many adults. That is because the teeth’s enamel is strong, yet porous. Over time, then, the foods and drinks one consumes can begin to discolor the teeth, leading to a smile that is less vibrant, and often noticeably discolored.

Professional whitening is designed to create dramatic results quickly, making it a great option for those wishing to lighten their teeth by several shades within a few weeks’ time, such as for a holiday party, graduation or wedding.

Of course, many people also struggle with insecurity caused by inconsistencies in the size or shape of their teeth. For these issues, most dentists recommend either porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding, both of which can hide a host of common problems. Bonding is faster and more affordable, in most cases, because it relies on a composite resin material that is sculpted by the dentist. Veneers, on the other hand, are crafted from dental porcelain, which allows for longer-lasting results, thanks to porcelain’s stain resistance.
