Summer is almost here, which means it’s time to start planning for backyard barbecues, lazy days by the pool, or maybe even a vacation to the beach. Of course, you will want to capture the memories you make this upcoming season. However, if you don’t like the way your teeth look, you may not feel confident enough to smile in photos and videos. Fortunately, a cosmetic dentist can help! There are many different cosmetic treatments that can transform your teeth and help you reclaim your confidence. Choosing the best option for you will depend on your unique circumstance. However, here are 3 popular cosmetic dental treatments that are perfect for summer.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Coffee, tea, and other dark foods and drinks can stain your teeth over time. One quick and easy way to dramatically improve your appearance before summer starts is to undergo professional teeth whitening. In just a single visit, your dentist can turn your teeth several shades whiter by using a powerful bleaching solution and a special activating light. Prefer to brighten your smile gradually? Ask your dentist for custom trays for at-home teeth whitening. Regardless of which option you choose, you can trust that you will achieve stunning results that over-the-counter teeth whitening strips just cannot match.

Dental Bonding

If you want to fix a chipped tooth or other minor dental imperfections, dental bonding can do the trick! During bonding treatment, your cosmetic dentist will apply composite resin to your teeth and then shape and polish the resin to match your surrounding smile. In addition to concealing chipped, gapped, or discolored teeth, dental bonding can also lengthen undersized teeth. Quick and affordable, dental bonding typically does not require any significant preparation or anesthesia. Other advantages include:

  • Immediate results
  • Painless procedure
  • Preserves natural enamel
  • Results last 10+ years with proper care

Porcelain Veneers

Have you ever wondered how celebrities always seems to have perfect teeth? The truth is that many wear porcelain veneers. You can achieve a beautiful smile fit for a Hollywood red carpet with veneer treatment too!

Crafted from thin but durable porcelain, veneers are essentially shells that bond to the front of teeth. These custom dental restorations can hide stains, chips, cracks, gaps and more, and treatment usually only requires two trips to a dentist’s office. Major benefits of porcelain veneers include:

  • No recovery period
  • Natural appearance
  • Whiter teeth
  • Average lifespan of 10 to 15 years

As mentioned above, the right cosmetic treatment for you will depend on what specific changes you want to make to your teeth. So, if you want to make the most of your summer with family and friends, talk to a cosmetic dentist today!
