From working 40 plus hours per week to completing school assignments and studying for tests, everyday life can be hectic. For this reason, many people use their summer vacation to take a break, get some rest, or go on an unforgettable adventure. Whether you’re planning on going out of town or having a staycation, a gorgeous grin is sure to improve the season. Read on to learn about four cosmetic dental treatments that you should consider getting this summer.
Treatment #1: Teeth Whitening
If you’re a fan of coffee, tea, red wine, cola, or other highly-pigmented foods and drinks, you’ve probably noticed your smile starting to stain over the years. Fortunately, teeth whitening can help. This treatment works by lifting years’ worth of stains from one’s smile to give it a more uniform look. Some dentists offer in-office whitening that can be completed in just one visit as well as at-home kits to be used on your own time.
Treatment #2: Invisalign
Invisalign is another excellent way to start your summer off with a gorgeous, healthy-looking grin. This treatment features a series of clear aligners that apply gentle but constant pressure on your teeth. this moves them into the correct position over several months or years. Not only does Invisalign help you achieve a nicer smile, but it also makes it easier for you to brush and floss. This allows you to keep oral health issues like cavities at bay.
Treatment #3: Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are thin shells that are attached to the front surface of a tooth to mask imperfections like cracks, gaps, chips, stains, alignment issues, and misshapen teeth. They are made from durable, lifelike dental-grade porcelain and require the removal of a small amount of enamel to ensure that they properly adhere and effortlessly blend with the surrounding teeth. It generally takes two visits to complete the procedure, and they’re a great way to quickly improve the look of your smile before you set off on vacation.
Treatment #4: Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding uses the same composite resin material that’s used for tooth-colored fillings to conceal or repair the same smile problems as porcelain veneers. Though these treatments can achieve a similar look, porcelain veneers are much more durable. Dental bonding is the cheaper option, though, so you may want to consider it if you’re trying to save money to spend on souvenirs once you get to your vacation destination.
