New Year is a great time to make resolutions about improving your health and appearance. There are many useful resolutions that you can make, such as eating healthier, exercising regularly, and improving your oral hygiene. Do you wish to have a beautiful smile this year? Cosmetic dentistry in Staten Island, NY, can help!
Although most people associate cosmetic dental procedures with teeth whitening, there are quite a few other procedures that can improve the look and feel of your smile after a single appointment. Tooth bonding can repair cracks and chips in a single visit, while porcelain veneers can cover a variety of imperfections. Reshaping your teeth with a simple procedure like contouring or using a laser for teeth bleaching can make a big impact over the course of just a couple of weeks.
Take a look at them in detail:
The holidays are a time of indulgence, and that means more sweets and treats than normal. For some people, that can mean some discoloration of their teeth. Fortunately, you can fix those teeth with professional teeth whitening treatment from your cosmetic dentist. This easy procedure will brighten your smile by several shades in under an hour!
When you go in for your teeth whitening appointment, your dentist will begin by protecting your gums with a barrier or a gel-like solution. Then they’ll apply the whitening agent directly to your teeth, allowing it to remain on your teeth for the duration that the dentist recommends. Most treatments last between five and 30 minutes. If you’re concerned about sensitivity or pain during your appointment, talk to your dentist about options for reducing pain and sensitivity. In most cases, you’ll be fine, but it’s always best to confirm that you’re comfortable before starting any treatment.
After your treatment is finished, you will be able to go home with your whitened smile. Make sure you follow all instructions for the amount of time that your treatment requires you to avoid staining from things like coffee, tea, red wine, berries, soy sauce, tomato sauce, etc. If you’ve noticed that you have stains or are dealing with other issues, talk to the dentist about what options might be best for you.
If you want a smile that’s picture-perfect in the new year, consider investing in porcelain veneers. These thin shells of tooth-colored material are bonded to the front surface of teeth to create a straighter and whiter smile. Porcelain is an allergy-free material that’s also stain-resistant, so patients can eat their favorite foods and beverages without concern for discoloration. Veneers are also extremely durable, typically lasting from ten to twenty years before needing to be replaced or repaired. If you’re ready for a cosmetic makeover for your smile, it’s time to schedule a consultation with our dentists!
