A New Smile for the New Year!

New Year’s resolutions to lose weight and exercise more are often tossed by the wayside as the weeks pass. This year, make a resolution that will last throughout 2017 and beyond: Getting a new smile! A smile makeover might be exactly what you need to lift your self-confidence, ask for that promotion at work, hit the dating scene, or simply pamper yourself after a stressful 2016. Begin exploring the possibilities for your new smile, such as teeth whitening, dental implants, Invisalign, and many more.

Banish unsightly discoloration

Teeth whitening is one of the most commonly requested types of cosmetic dentistry procedures, with good reason. Yellow and brown stains on the teeth can convince even the most outgoing of individuals to avoid smiling. Even if you take excellent care of your oral health, your teeth are prone to becoming dull and discolored over time due to factors like pigmented foods and beverages. In-office laser teeth whitening is a rapid, safe, and effective way to brighten up your smile and take years off your appearance.

Laser teeth whitening involves applying a medical-grade bleaching gel to the teeth. A laser gently heats the gel to maximize its effectiveness and reduce the total treatment time. Your cosmetic dentist will take special precautions to prevent the possibility of gum irritation and tooth sensitivity after your whitening procedure.

Smile with confidence-and without gaps

Physical trauma, periodontal disease, and other problems can all result in an incomplete smile. If you have one or more missing teeth, you have more options for replacing them than just dentures. Talk to a cosmetic dentist about whether you might be a good candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are an excellent alternative to dentures because they are permanently fixed in place, they look exactly like any natural tooth, and they provide superior comfort and function for eating and speaking.

During the dental implant procedure, your dentist drills a small hole into the jawbone. A titanium post is inserted and the gums are closed over the incision. After the area heals and the jawbone fuses to the implant, your dentist will then place the abutment and the crown on top of the implant.

Straighten those pearly whites

Not everyone was fortunate enough to receive braces as a child and some of those who did have braces experienced the gradual shifting of the teeth over time. If your teeth aren’t as straight as they could be, consult your cosmetic dentist about your straightening options. Invisalign is a great choice for adults because the clear plastic trays are invisible to the naked eye. The aligners are also removable, which means there are no restrictions on dietary intake. Plus, after removing the aligners, it’s a breeze to clean the teeth because there aren’t any uncomfortable wires or brackets to work around.
