When your smile is one of your most noticeable features, you want to make sure that it is white and sparkling! Now, we are all well aware that we should visit our dentist once a year at least. We should also visit our hygienist during this time period. However, we don’t have to stick to the absolute basics. To get the most out of our dental treatment, we should consider other additional alternatives too! Here are some of the most popular dental treatments on the market for you to consider alongside your usual routine and check ups!
If you take a look at pretty much any celebrity or individual in glossy magazines and advertisements, they will have perfectly aligned gnashers. If this is something you’re interested in yourself, contact an orthodontist. They specialise in the alignment of your teeth and general tooth structure. Now, many of us are hesitant to do this, as we don’t want traditional braces, which tend to be associated with teens. But worry not – there are more discreet treatments out there. The best is perhaps Invisalign. There are plenty of Advantages to Invisalign. It is a tooth alignment treatment that uses clear braces to change the positioning of your teeth in a relatively short period of time. You can expect to have them removed within nine to eighteen months!
erhaps the most commonly carried out type of cosmetic dentistry is teeth whitening. There are various ways that your teeth can become stained over the years. Smoking, excessive coffee drinking, and insufficient cleaning are just a few of the potential reasons. While there are various over-the-counter treatments available, it’s important that you avoid them at all costs. They are unreliable and could actually damage your teeth more than they help, leaving your gnashers looking patchy. Though they are cheaper, you get what you pay for. Instead, consult with a professional dentist who will create a unique mould for your teeth to ensure even coverage and sparkling pearly whites.
If you worry that your teeth are uneven and discoloured to a point that is beyond repair, or if you simply don’t have the patience to wait for other treatments to work, you might want to consult your dentist on the subject of veneers. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are specially made to fit over the surface of a patient’s tooth. They improve the visible appearance of your teeth. From colour, to shape and position. They are often used to correct tooth discoloration or repair small chips to the front of a tooth. They are thin and bonded with a strong adhesive, so your teeth will need little preparation before it is fitted. If looked after properly, they can last for years. Which means fewer visits back to the dentist to keep on top of your beautiful smile.
These are just three different treatments that your dentist can carry out on you to ensure that you have the perfect Hollywood smile, but they are some of the most popular. So, mull them over and try them out!
