Summer vacation is just around the corner now. Is your calendar already filling up with a mix of priceless adventures and once-in-a-lifetime events? Whether you’ll be headed overseas or to your best friend’s wedding, make sure your smile is ready for all the impending photo ops with beautiful pearly whites, achieved through cosmetic dentistry. From whitening treatment to porcelain veneers, it is possible to have a more dazzling smile quickly, if you schedule a cosmetic dental appointment now!

What Can a Dentist Do for You?

The first step in devising any cosmetic treatment plan is speaking candidly with your dentist about which dental imperfections are causing the most insecurity. Whether it’s basic stains or discoloration, inconsistencies in the teeth’s shape or size, or even minor spacing problems, in most cases a cosmetic dentist can help to hide these imperfections while also helping to enhance a smile’s natural beauty.

Which Treatment Is Right for Your Smile?

IF your primary objective is simply to address deep staining or discoloration, the dentist will likely recommend professional teeth whitening, which can often help to lighten teeth by up to eight shades.

For inconsistencies in the shape or size of teeth, cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers could help. Both are designed to hide flaws, while creating natural-looking results. That said, bonding relies on a composite resin material sculpted onto the teeth, while dental veneers are crafted from dental-grade porcelain, which lasts longer thanks to its stain resistance.

In some cases, a dentist might even recommend combining treatments to achieve a more beautiful smile!
