Now that New Year’s Day is almost here, it’s time to start thinking about your resolutions for 2020. Do you want to hit the gym more often? Read more books? Become a more confident person? Luckily, your cosmetic dentist in Huber Heights can help with that last one. It’s hard to be confident when you’re not comfortable with the way your smile looks. Read more to learn about three cosmetic treatments that can revamp your smile just in time for 2020.
1. Teeth Whitening
Maybe you enjoyed a little too much wine or coffee this holiday season, and now your pearly whites aren’t that pearly white anymore. Not to worry; your dentist offers professional teeth whitening to get your smile back on track. With in-office treatment, you can brighten your smile by up to several shades in just one appointment that takes an hour or less. You could also choose take-home treatment. This option utilizes customized trays filled with a potent bleaching gel that’s significantly stronger than anything you can get over the counter. You should see results after just a few days!
2. Porcelain Veneers
Perhaps you fell and chipped your tooth over the holidays. It doesn’t hurt, but it bothers you aesthetically. That’s where veneers can help. These ultra-thin, tooth-shaped porcelain coverings fit snugly over the front surfaces of the teeth to correct all kinds of imperfections, from chips to gaps to discoloration. They can even last up to a decade with regular brushing and flossing.
3. Dental Bonding
If you want to fix cracks or gaps in your smile but don’t have much money left after buying gifts for your family, you may be a good candidate for dental bonding. During this inexpensive procedure, your dentist will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to the problem areas of your tooth. Your dentist can then improve the size, shape, and color of your tooth to your heart’s content.
If you have a less-than-perfect smile that you want to get fixed up before the new year, don’t hesitate to contact your cosmetic dentist. They can help you get the perfect smile ahead of 2020!
