If you’re preparing for backyard family gatherings or a week-long getaway this summer, it’s time to think about what you can do to improve the look of your smile. Years of wear and tear and stains can cause teeth to appear dull and damaged; however, with the help of a cosmetic dentist at Indy Dental Group, you can embrace a healthier, younger-looking smile this summer. Here are 3 unique treatments to consider that will enhance your appearance and boost your confidence.
Veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain that are customized to fit over the surface of your teeth to hide various imperfections, including chips, cracks, discoloration, misshapen teeth, and even slightly gapped or misaligned smiles. Removing a small bit of enamel to ensure proper bonding, veneers can be placed in just two appointments and can last 10-20 years with proper care and maintenance. By choosing veneers to transform your smile, you will enjoy a natural look and feel that allows for greater confidence when surrounded by family and friends.
If years of early morning coffees have left your teeth stained and discolored, you’re not alone. Many individuals suffer the same fate but fortunately, teeth whitening is an ideal solution that can easily remove interior and exterior stains, leaving you with a whiter, brighter smile. The best part is with the help of your cosmetic dentist at Indy Dental Group, you can choose between in-office professional treatment, custom-made trays that are created based on impressions taken of your smile, or pre-loaded trays to make it easier to brighten your smile while at home. Using high-grade, professional whitening gel, you can see results in as little as an hour with in-office treatment or two weeks should you choose to whiten at home.
In the past, cavities were once only filled using traditional amalgam. However, advancements in dentistry now allow dentists to use tooth-colored solutions to create a more pleasing aesthetic. If you have silver or gold fillings that continue to cause embarrassment when talking to others, it’s time to make the switch to tooth-colored fillings. These metal-free restorations consist of composite resin, which is color-matched to blend in with your existing tooth. Because it is malleable, tooth-colored fillings are considered a more conservative treatment option that allows you to keep more of your natural tooth structure. They also create a tight seal to prevent reinfection or further damage, and they’re biocompatible, making them safer for you and the environment. Not to mention, they’re also a great alternative if you have allergies or are sensitive to metal.
Don’t let the summer pass you by without seeing a cosmetic dentist at Indy Dental Group. With so many treatment options available, they can help you identify which one is right for you.
