A great smile can be the most attractive feature of your face. A smile helps you express health, success, youth and sincerity. It is a great asset in your personal, business and social contacts. So it’s important that you are happy with how your smile looks.
During upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration, it’s easy to get carried away with the delicious chocolate treats. While we all love to celebrate Valentine’s Day with wine and chocolates, they can dull the brightness of your teeth.
Here are some of the most popular and practical smile makeovers that patients get just before Valentine’s Day:
Teeth Cleaning – Nobody wants to go on a date with their teeth looking all yellow and dirty. If you want that captivating & mesmerizing smile, it would be best to go beyond the usual flossing, brushing, and mouth rinsing. Valentine’s Day is that perfect time to give your teeth a much needed thorough cleaning at Dalal Dental Care – Dental Office of Dr. Alpa Dalal. Professional teeth cleanings remove food particles and calculus deposits that normal brushing and flossing cannot remove. The best part about getting your teeth cleaned professionally on a regular basis is that it minimizes the chances of creating dental problems in the future. Not only are you getting a cleaner, better looking smile, you are also preventing yourself from potential dental procedures in the future by taking care of your teeth.
Tooth Whitening – Teeth become stained for many reasons – drinking coffee, tea or wine; smoking; and even aging can discolor teeth. Tooth whitening is a process that makes discolored teeth whiter. The bleach used for in-office (chair side) whitening is stronger than the bleach found in at-home whitening kits. Keep in mind that not everyone’s teeth can become movie-star white. Your dentist can recommend the whitening treatment that is right for you. Dalal Dental care’s teeth whitening methods will give you better results than over-the-counter methods.
Other options for improving your smile include:
Tooth-Colored Fillings – Your dentist can use natural-colored materials to restore teeth that have cavities. Options include composite materials, such as resin, as well as lab-made porcelain inlays, inlays and crowns.
Veneers – Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded, or cemented, to the front of your teeth. They are custom-made of ceramic or composite resin, and look like natural teeth. Veneers can be used to fill spaces between teeth and to cover teeth that are stained, poorly shaped, or a bit crooked.
Invisalign – Invisalign aligners are made of a virtually invisible plastic. In fact, you’ll be surprised to find out how many people won’t even notice you’re going through treatment. That means not having to feel self-conscious about how you look. One thing people may notice, however, is that you’re starting to smile a whole lot more. With Invisalign smooth, comfortable aligners, there are no irritating brackets or wires to worry about and no food restrictions that will change your eating habits. Plus with fewer doctor visits, Invisalign fits conveniently into your busy lifestyle
Enamel Shaping – Your dentist can “reshape” your teeth by contouring tooth enamel, the outer layer of the tooth. When teeth are a little crowded or uneven, or when teeth appear too long, your dentist can use enamel shaping to improve how the teeth look.
Crowns – If a tooth needs more a dramatic change than veneers or enamel shaping can provide, crowns are an option. The outer part of the tooth is removed and a crown is placed over it. The crown can be made to fit in with your other teeth. It’s like a fresh start for your tooth.
