Valentine’s Day is a highly anticipated event that involves a certain amount of preparation. Restaurant reservations, buying the perfect gift and choosing the best outfit are some of the things people do to prepare for Valentine’s Day. But what about your smile? Have you considered taking cosmetic dentistry treatments to enhance the way your teeth look? Leading cosmetic dentist in Mill Creek, WA, Dr. Darren Greenhalgh, reveals 3 fast dental treatments to improve your teeth and your smile. A beautiful smile can most certainly spell out the difference in creating that lasting impression on Valentine’s Day.
Teeth whitening can be done by your dentist or can be performed by you in the comforts of your home. However, if you want your teeth whitened in time for Valentine’s Day, we suggest that you take in-office teeth whitening. This is a tooth bleaching treatment that takes no more than an hour to complete. The process involves gel application all over the teeth, followed by exposure of the teeth to a special light. The gel and light combination effectively removes tooth stains of every kind. In an hour’s time, you can have the bright pearly whites that you desire, for a beautiful, attractive smile.
Another fast cosmetic dentistry treatment that you can take is porcelain veneers. This involves the placement of tooth-colored, porcelain shells over the teeth. Since veneers are placed on the visible side of your teeth, they effectively mask tooth flaws like chips, cracks and discoloration. Porcelain veneers can also be designed to enhance oddly-shaped teeth. Whether you have teeth that seem too large or too small, gaps between teeth, oddly spaced teeth or discolored teeth, porcelain veneers can correct all of these tooth imperfections to give you a beautiful smile transformation.
Since our practice is equipped with CEREC technology, we can perform porcelain veneers in just a single office visit. Our CEREC system allows us to take your dental impression, design your veneers, fabricate them and bond the veneers over your teeth in just one appointment. This is one amazing cosmetic dentistry treatment that you can have done in time for Valentine’s Day.
Dental bonding is another simple, fast, effective solution for a beautiful smile makeover. Just like porcelain veneers, dental bonding works by masking tooth flaws or reshaping the teeth to improve their appearance. The process involves the application of liquid composite resin over the teeth. The doctor then skillfully molds and sculpts the resin to enhance the look of your teeth. Once this is done, the teeth are exposed to a special light that hardens the resin material. Once the composite resin has hardened, the dentist trims excess cement and makes final touches. In as little as an hour’s appointment, dental bonding can transform your smile beautifully. It is a simple, less-invasive, fast, inexpensive cosmetic dentistry treatment that you can take.
