Three Ways You Can Improve Your Smile
Your smile is more important than you think. It only takes a person seven seconds to form an impression of you. A straight, bright white smile can lead people to believe that you’re a happy, confident, healthy person. It can lead people to believe that you’re a trustworthy, dependable acquaintance.
If your smile is lacking, you can fix it with some cosmetic dental work. Although some may hem and haw over cosmetic dentistry costs, dental cosmetics aren’t expenses–they’re investments in yourself. Here are some of the best dental cosmetics that you can have to get the smile you deserve.
Teeth become discolored for a number of reasons. Perhaps you smoke, or eat a lot of foods that stain them, or even take certain medications that result in darker, unattractive teeth. Thankfully, dentists can whiten teeth by creating a custom mouthpiece that ensures the right amount of whitening solution reaches your teeth. These in-office procedures take only about an hour, and can result in teeth that are 10 shades whiter.
Veneers are custom plastic or porcelain shells that cover the front sides of your teeth to whiten them or make them into a more complimenting shape. These dental cosmetics are good for teeth that are chipped or worn, permanently stained, poorly shaped, slightly crooked, or have spaces between them. One of the best things about veneers is that they’re one of the most affordable kinds of dental cosmetics, and last longer than other kinds.
Braces don’t only fix crooked or misaligned teeth, they can also improve a patient’s irregular bite and correct his or her jaw positioning. By applying slight pressure over the course of one to three years, braces reposition teeth until they’re where they should be. Many people don’t like metal braces because they’re uncomfortable and unaesthetic. Instead, they choose clear aligners that do the same job, but are easily removed for cleaning and eating. Plus, they’re basically invisible so no one will know that you’re straightening your teeth either!
These are only a few of the dental cosmetics you can have done to improve your smile. If you have any questions about these dental cosmetics, feel free to ask in the comments! Continue.
