Everybody wants to enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile, but many people aren’t sure what their options are that are in their budget range and are relatively fast and easy to do because let’s face it, nobody has a lot of time to spend in the dental chair!
Cosmetic solutions are some of the many treatment options that a dentist Brentwood can offer their patients. During a routine appointment, patients are welcomed to bring up any concerns or wishes that they have regarding their smile and treatment options can be discussed at length so that an informed decision can be made.
By understanding their options and knowing what other treatments are available, patients can understand what they can do for their smile, for its health and appearance. Let’s take a quick look at some of the more readily available and common options that can be used during everyday dentistry.
Removing stains on teeth is a commonplace occurrence and professionals are highly skilled in the identification and removal of teeth staining. Treatment kits can be used in the dental practice or in the comfort of one’s own home, depending on the wishes of the patient.
However, before treatment can begin, a professional will want to consult with their patient, have a look at their teeth and determine how effective a standard whitening treatment will be in removing particular stains.
This is because some yellowing can be caused by medications or age and bleaching the teeth may not be as effective. In these situations, other options can be offered to create that picture-perfect white smile.
What are some of these other options?
Veneers are a costly option and require a lifetime commitment, however, are hugely popular and an effective way of disguising many cosmetic concerns that an individual may have with the appearance of their smile, such as cracked or broken teeth, discoloured teeth, or misaligned teeth.
Another more affordable option that does not require as much of a commitment because it does not need to be repeated once it wears away is composite bonding, which uses the same white resin that is used in fillings. In the same way that veneers are used to cover a natural tooth, professionals can apply the resin to cosmetically realign teeth, perfect teeth and ensure that the smile that a person shares is the best it can be.
Both of these treatments are relatively fast, requiring only one or two appointments to complete, depending on the complexity of the procedure. In this way, cosmetic solutions do not need to take months to complete, rather a person can work on perfecting their smile for an upcoming event without a lot of prior planning.
It is important for individuals to be confident with their smile and happy with how they look in order to be able to put their best foot forward in all aspects of their lives. By making sure that their teeth look and are as healthy as possible, then people can feel great in knowing that this aspect of their self-confidence is not holding them back.
