Summertime is finally here! That means it’s finally time to pack up your bags and head out of town. Whether you’re planning to spend the warmer months in the mountains, on the beach, or riding roller coasters, you’re sure to take lots of photos and meet tons of interesting people. For this reason, you’ll want to be sure that your smile looks its best before you set out. To help you achieve a more beautiful beam, read on to learn about four cosmetic dental treatments that are perfect for the summertime.
Treatment #1: Teeth Whitening
After years of consuming highly-pigmented foods and drinks, your smile will start to lose its luster and look discolored. Fortunately, teeth whitening provides a solution by lifting stains from your teeth. This treatment can drastically improve the look of your smile in a short period of time so you’re ready to take social media-worthy photos all summer long.
Treatment #2: Orthodontics
Invisalign treatment utilizes a series of aligner trays to straighten one’s smile over a period of months or years. Since the aligners are virtually invisible, it’s the treatment of choice for many looking to improve the look of their smiles. Invisalign can be used to correct gaps between teeth, alignment issues, and bite problems so you can avoid premature wear and your smile looks more uniform. Though treatment won’t be complete by the end of the season, your pearly whites will be on the right track by next summer!
Treatment #3: Porcelain Veneers
These thin shells are made from dental-grade porcelain and can cover up or correct things like chips, cracks, discoloration, minor alignment issues, and misshapen teeth. Though they are an excellent way to quickly improve the look of your smile, they also require the removal of a thin layer of enamel. This means that this treatment is permanent, and those considering it should make sure it’s the right option for them before proceeding. Since the veneer process can be completed in just two appointments, it’s ideal for those who want to achieve fast but drastic results.
Treatment #4: Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding is a treatment that corrects similar issues as veneers using a composite material to cover up imperfections. It’s much cheaper than getting veneers, but bonding is also less durable. Bonding also doesn’t require permanent alterations to the teeth. It’s the better option for those less concerned with longevity or who want to save money on treatment.
There are several dental treatments that are perfect for the summertime. If you’re interested in any of them, speak with your dentist to learn which one is the right option to give you a vacation-ready smile!
