The holidays are quickly approaching, and it’ll be New Year’s soon after. That means you are going to be spending a lot of extra time with friends and family. You want to go into all of the parties and dinners with confidence, and one of the best ways to do this is by knowing that you have a gorgeous smile. Cosmetic dentistry is the only you can enhance your smile and look your best this season, and you can get it today from your cosmetic dentist in Copperas Cove at Benchmark Family Dental.
Why Would I Want Cosmetic Dentistry?
Unfortunately, even healthy teeth are not always aesthetically pleasing. A complete smile should be healthy and beautiful. It can make you feel more self-assured and motivate you to be more outgoing. Cosmetic dentistry has the power to impact more than just your teeth. A smile that you are proud of not only can make you feel better about yourself, but also can improve your overall health. The team at Benchmark Family Dental have a variety of ways of enhancing your smile.
Years of coffee, wine, tobacco, or simple ageing can leave your teeth looking discolored and dull. Teeth-whitening is an easy way to turn back the clock and bring your smile back to life. It works by applying a highly-concentrated bleaching gel to your teeth and letting it break up long-standing stains. It even strengthens your teeth while doing it because the gel contains potassium nitrate and fluoride. All this can be done in our office in around an hour, making it work for just about anyone’s schedule.
We can also enable you to whiten your teeth at home by providing you with a custom-made tray and the potent bleaching gel. You simply need to wear the tray with the gel for 30 minutes a day for two weeks to drastically whiten your teeth. This can be used as a treatment on its own or as a touch-up for your in-office whitening.
One of the quickest and easiest ways to repair a variety of cosmetic issues is with cosmetic bonding. A custom-shaded composite resin will be bonded to your teeth and molded to improve their shape, size, color, and alignment. The resin is then instantly hardened using a UV light. You can have the entire procedure done in about an hour, and the results can last for years with regular brushing and flossing.
Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers
One of the most comprehensive cosmetic procedures involves porcelain veneers. The procedure itself is straightforward and painless, but the results are astounding. You can address a variety of cosmetic issues such as damaged teeth, discoloration, misalignment, and even obvious gaps in just two easy visits. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are securely bonded to the front of your teeth. Not only will they give you a beautiful smile, but also teeth you can rely on day to day.
A quicker option that can give you a similar result involves lumineers. These are thinner than veneers and require less preparation. They are ideal for patients looking for a fast, but dramatic improvement to their smile.
Need to straighten your teeth but don’t want to deal with the look and discomfort of metal braces? Invisalign gives you the best of everything when it comes to appearance, effectiveness, and comfort. It uses clear plastic aligner trays to gently and gradually straighten your teeth over time. Only you will notice that you are wearing the aligners because they are nearly invisible. Plus, they are easily removable so that you can eat and clean your teeth normally. Straighter teeth are actually easier to keep clean, ensuring your long-term health. You get all of the benefits of braces without any of the drawbacks.
