Many people will set goals at New Year, often to do with health and fitness after a season of indulgence. Usually, these good intentions will fall by the wayside by February or March. This year, how about doing something a bit different and which will provide lasting benefits well beyond spring? If a new smile has been on your wish list, resolve to make this wish come true.
The Visible and Not-So Visible Benefits of a New Smile
A new smile can help you make the most of your appearance and is a great way to boost self-esteem. Lots of people plan their new smile in celebration of a special event like a wedding, milestone birthday or another occasion, but you don’t need an excuse to look after yourself. Your smile is the thing people notice first, and the possibilities to improve it are endless.
Equally importantly, there are some less visible benefits as your new smile could well be healthier than before. While some smile makeover procedures in Whitby are merely cosmetic, for example, teeth whitening, others could improve or protect your oral health. Some cosmetic dentistry treatments will help to restore teeth damaged by trauma or decay or can replace them entirely. Other treatments such as Invisalign in Whitby will invisibly straighten your teeth, potentially making them easier to clean and improving your dental health.
The Most Popular Treatments Used to Create a New Smile
Teeth whitening is probably the most popular treatment for brightening teeth. It is quick, highly effective and very affordable, and we use Philips Zoom whitening in Oshawa that can lighten your smile in as little as one appointment. Afterwards, you can keep them looking their best with a custom home-made whitening kit.
Porcelain crowns cover up a tooth entirely and are ideal where a tooth is broken, has received root canal treatment or has significant decay. We can create the most beautiful all-ceramic crowns that will give you a stunning new smile you’ll be proud to show. You may not even have to wait that long as same-day crowns in Ajax are made on-site in just a matter of hours, so you receive the crown the same day.
Porcelain veneers cover the entire front surface of the tooth, hiding unsightly spaces in between teeth, and mending teeth that may be broken or chipped. Veneers are a great solution if you have teeth that are internally stained, and which cannot be whitened easily. They are also excellent for correcting the appearance of teeth that look crooked or misshapen.
Dental bonding uses tooth-coloured composite resin to correct small gaps, chips and to cover stains in teeth. The huge advantage of dental bonding is its cost-effectiveness as treatment can be completed in a single visit. However, the effect of dental bonding is subtle and may not be suitable for people looking to create an entirely new smile.
Dental implants aren’t the quickest treatment, but if you have missing teeth, it’s worth investigating this option. You’ll receive teeth that look and feel great, and provided you care for them they should last for years. Dental implants help to protect your jawbone and your natural teeth.
Another treatment that will take a while to complete, but if only your front teeth require correction, they could be straightened in a matter of months.
