3 Cosmetic Treatments to Enhance Your Smile This Summer
June 20, 2022
Are you interested in improving your smile this season? Since it’s summertime, you probably want to make sure you look your best while having your fun in the sun. Not only can you improve your dental health, but you’ll feel more confident about showing off brighter teeth in the long run! Keep reading from your dentist in Chaska about three cosmetic dental treatments that are great for summer.
Are you struggling with a stained or discolored smile? If so, then a great option for you might be teeth whitening. By using professional-grade bleaching agents, your dentist can help you effectively blast away stubborn stains from your enamel. This can be done with either an in-office or at-home treatment. If you’d rather gradually brighten your smile at your convenience, then you may be provided with custom-made trays and bleaching gel to achieve your results in a couple of weeks. But if you’re on a tight schedule, your dentist can whiten your teeth by several shades in just a single visit! Afterward, you can expect to enjoy your enhanced pearly whites for many months with proper care.
Having minor chips or cracks in your teeth can often feel embarrassing or frustrating, which can lower your self-confidence over time. With direct bonding, you can whiten your smile as well as fix mild flaws in your smile! Your dentist will use a small amount of composite resin to mold and sculpt around your teeth. Once they’ve reshaped your pearly whites to fit your smile goals, they’ll use a curing light to harden the material, resulting in a new and improved smile that can last for 10 years or more with good dental hygiene.
Do you want to get a Hollywood smile this summer? One of the best ways to do this is with veneers. These thin porcelain shells will be attached to the front of your smile, concealing most mild imperfections—like stained, chipped, cracked, misshapen, or misaligned teeth. Your dentist will have to remove a tiny portion of your enamel to prepare your pearly whites for the veneers. Once they’re cemented in place, you’ll be able to enjoy a beautifully transformed smile. With proper care, they can last around 20 years!
So, if you’re interested in enhancing your dental health during summer, consider these life-changing treatments. Speak with your dentist, and they’ll be more than happy to discuss the best options for you.
