Summer is here, and that means graduations, weddings, and all kinds of other events where people will be taking pictures. If you’re unhappy with the way your teeth look, it can be hard to focus on enjoying yourself. You might be worried about how your smile will turn out in pictures. You might be self-conscious of any stains, chips, or cracks in your teeth. However, thanks to cosmetic dentistry in Towson, you won’t have to stress about how you look. Here are the top 3 options to refresh your smile this summer.
Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of porcelain that are attached to the front surface of your teeth. Once in place, they blend in flawlessly.
They can be used to fix any number of flaws in your tooth’s appearance, such as:
Veneers are placed over two trips to the office. On the first appointment, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the surface of your tooth. Then you will have impressions of your teeth made to create your custom veneers. You will leave the office with temporary veneers in place to protect your teeth and get used to the feeling. During the second appointment, your dentist will attach the final veneers, which can stay on for a decade of more if properly cared for. To care for your veneers, it’s best to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and waxed floss.
Since porcelain veneers are stain-proof, you can enjoy food and drinks such as coffee, red wine, or berries as much as you want without worrying about them staining your smile!
If you’re looking for a quick, single-appointment fix for your smile, metal-free restorations are the way to go. Your dentist will use strong, natural-looking porcelain to mimic the feel and function of a healthy natural tooth. Like veneers, metal-free restorations can last a decade or longer. They are also stain-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about discoloration.
