You can tell a lot about a person from their smile. Smiles convey our moods, help us appear confident, and make us approachable to others. But what if you’re not smiling, for some reason? What message are you sending if you favor a neutral expression? If dental imperfections and flaws are keeping you from sharing your smile with the world, then it may be time to consider cosmetic dentistry to turn your frown upside down. At Reston Serenity Smiles, we offer several cosmetic treatments that will get you smiling again. Here are just a few of our favorites:
- Whitening — You can have the world’s best dental hygiene routine, but you’ll never be able to completely rid your teeth of discolorations. Even if you manage to avoid heavily pigmented food and drinks that leave stains, your teeth naturally darken as you age. Whitening is one of the most affordable and fast-acting ways to transform your smile. Under the supervision of your dentist, whitening is safe and effective, lightening those dingy teeth up to seven shades. Get ready to brighten the world with your smile!
- Veneers — Veneers are dental multi-taskers and can correct a number of imperfections. Whether you have a chipped tooth, your teeth are too small, you have gaps that you’d like to close without the use of orthodontics, or you’d like to change the overall shape of your teeth, veneers can do it all. After your teeth are prepared, your dentist will take an impression that will be used to create your customized veneers. When these thin ceramic shells are bonded to the front of your teeth, you’ll love what you see smiling back at you in the mirror.
- Dental Implants — Missing a tooth? Missing several? Dental implants are, hands down, your best replacement option. An implant is surgically placed into your jaw; when it heals, it serves as an anchor for a customized, natural-looking, and permanent prosthetic tooth. With implants, you’ll have no eating restrictions, no speech impediments, no efervescent soaking tablets or dental adhesives, and no fear of being caught “without your teeth.” Best of all, you’ll feel free to smile and laugh to your heart’s content.
- Invisalign — Why use traditional braces when you can straighten your teeth with Invisalign? Instead of brackets, bands, and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligner trays to gently guide your teeth into position. Every couple of weeks, you will change your trays, with each new set bringing your teeth closer to perfection. Patients love Invisalign for its subtlety, but they also love being able to eat what they want; simply remove the trays while you eat then pop them back in when you’re finished. In as few as six months, you could have the straight smile you’ve always dreamed of.
If you’re self-conscious about your smile, then you’re not living your life to the fullest. Invest in yourself by committing to cosmetic dentistry. Not only will you be proud to smile, but you’ll enjoy a newfound confidence that comes with it. If you’re ready to learn more, contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
