Summer is almost officially here. With school out and more daylight hours, many families are more active this time of year. Between summer vacations, summer projects, family reunions, neighborhood cookouts, and weddings, you (and your friends) will have plenty of reasons to add new photos to your social media pages.
So, while you are looking for the right outfit for your next social event, take a look at your smile. Are you ready to share it with hundreds of people online?
Atlanta West Dentistry offers a variety of cosmetic services that can help your smile looks its best this summer.
Teeth Whitening For A Smile That Shines
For better or worse, stained teeth go along with getting older. Every day, every week, every year, we eat more food. We drink more coffee, more tea, and more soft drinks.
Every bite and every sip add a little to the stains on our teeth. If your smile isn’t as bright as you would like it to be, ask about our professional teeth whitening options. This may be one of the simplest and fastest ways to improve your smile.
At Atlanta West Dentistry, we offer some of the leading teeth whitening products available today.
With KöR whitening, your first treatment takes about 45 minutes. Afterward, we’ll send you home with custom-designed whitening trays that you can fill with gel and wear while you sleep. In a matter of weeks, you should see a significant improvement in your smile.
Opalescence Boost is an in-office treatment that can give you noticeable results in about an hour.
We also offer a take-home product, Opalescence Go, that may be the easiest whitening product you’ll find. The kit includes whitening trays that have been prefilled with gel. All you have to do is pick your preferred flavor and wear them as directed at your convenience.
Your Smile Can Sparkle With Dental Veneers
Teeth whitening is one way to bring back your bright smile, but so can dental veneers. In truth, that’s just one of the things that dental veneers could do for you.
Veneers don’t lift the stains from your teeth. Veneers cover your teeth, sort of like fake fingernails that can last for decades with proper care.
You can get a single veneer if one of your teeth looks darker than the rest of your smile, or you can get a set of veneers to make your whole smile as white and bright as you want it to be.
But as we mentioned earlier, this is just one of veneers many tricks.
Do you have a gap between your teeth that you would like to close? Veneers may offer you a simple solution for this situation.
Do you have teeth that are chipped or have small cracks? Your veneers can be designed to repair those teeth.
If you have teeth that are worn down, misshapen, or appear short in comparison to the rest of your smile, veneers can build up those teeth. If your teeth are somewhat crooked, then dental veneers can give you the appearance of teeth that are perfectly straight.
In a matter of a few weeks, you could have a custom-designed set of DURAthin or e.max veneers bonded to your teeth to give you the kind of smiles you normally see in celebrity magazines. (And we’re pretty sure some of those smiles were made with veneers, too.)
Other Ways To Improve Your Smile
Teeth whitening and veneers are excellent options if you are looking to improve your smile soon, but they aren’t your only options.
Dental bonding or tooth bonding can be used to make small repairs to individual teeth. Bonding can fill cracks, close gaps between teeth, and rebuild chipped teeth.
Another option is a dental crown. Crowns are often used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay, are broken, or have deep cracks in them. You also may choose a dental crown as a way to fix a discolored tooth.
Your teeth aren’t the only things that affect your smile, either. If you have a “gummy” smile, then you may be interested in our gum reshaping procedure. Through this treatment, we remove excess gum tissue to reveal more of your pearly whites.
