You’ve heard the term “summer body,” but what about your teeth? Your oral health is just as important as your physical health, and teeth that have become stained or discolored can lower your confidence and make you embarrassed about your smile. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can restore your confidence and have you showing off your pearly whites in no time! Here are three different ways to brighten your teeth for summer.
Botox isn’t the only way you can roll back the years. Teeth whitening can remove the surface stains that come along with aging. Your dentist will use a bleaching solution to whiten teeth without causing sensitivity the way store-bought teeth whiteners can. It’s also more effective to have your teeth whitened by a dentist, and you’ll see better results in a much shorter time. Any cosmetic dentist will be able to whiten your teeth, so ask your dentist during your next appointment if you’re interested!
If your teeth are cracked, uneven, or discolored, dental veneers are one of the ways to brighten your teeth. These are thin sheets of porcelain that cover your natural tooth enamel, giving your teeth a whiter, more cohesive look. Veneers are a great way to conceal imperfections that would be expensive to fix otherwise and to help even out your teeth.
A damaged tooth can really take away from your smile, not to mention affect your chewing and possibly cause your pain. A dental crown is a porcelain cap that goes over a damaged tooth, restoring it and allowing you to chew normally again. Crowns are a great way to rescue a tooth rather than removing it entirely, which could cause unsightly gaps in your smile. Your damaged tooth will be looking and feeling as good as new in no time!
All three of these options can help you look and feel your best this summer. If you’re ready for brighter teeth, book your appointment with Northwest Austin Family Dentistry today!
