Do you feel embarrassed showing off your smile, because of imperfections in the shade, shape or size of your teeth? If so, have you considered how a cosmetic dentist can help? If what you really desire this holiday season is to achieve a dazzling smile, the kind you’ll be proud to show of now and throughout the coming new year, don’t wait to see what Santa puts beneath your Christmas tree. Instead, talk to your cosmetic dentist about how you could achieve a beautiful smile, now. There are a number of treatment options that can help to hide a variety of imperfections. More importantly, they can leave you with a beautiful, bright smile.

Enjoy Brighter Teeth with Professional Teeth Whitening

One of the most common cosmetic complaints is deep staining or discoloration. That is because the teeth’s enamel is porous. Over time foods and drinks, and especially tobacco products, can lead to visible discoloration. This can cause teeth to look grey, yellow, or simply dark. It can also cause the smile to look prematurely aged.

Fortunately, professional teeth whitening can help to erase most stains, leaving teeth visibly lighter and generally younger-looking.

Hide Imperfections with Porcelain Veneers

For permanent or intrinsic discoloration, the dentist might recommend porcelain veneers, instead. Of course, dental veneers can actually help to address a whole host of esthetic concerns in addition to staining, such as disproportionately sized or shaped teeth, and even minor gaps between some of the teeth.

Plus, thanks to porcelain’s strength and natural stain resistance, the veneers can be enjoyed for many years, often up to a decade with proper preventive care.
