Your smile is the first thing people see when they meet you, and we all know that a first impression is a lasting impression. If you are unhappy with your smile and tend to cover your mouth when laughing and speaking, maybe it’s time for a smile makeover.
Makeovers are designed to transform the way you see yourself and the way others see you, and it’s never too late to feel great about the way you look. Whether you require a simple treatment or a series of procedures to transform your smile, the professionals at Gentle Dental in Bayside can help. First, our dentists will examine and evaluate your overall oral health and the conditions that require treatment before coming up with a treatment plan that suits your needs and goals. Our priority is to restore optimum oral health as well as beauty and functionality to your teeth and gums.
Some conditions can affect your diction and eating habits and cause damage to not only your confidence, but to your health as well. Missing teeth can prevent you from eating a well-balanced diet, and make it difficult for food to be properly chewed and digested, while gaps between teeth or crooked teeth can make proper verbal pronunciation challenging. With such innovative treatment plans so readily available, it is hard to remember why you haven’t considered a smile makeover already.
Stained and discolored teeth may require simple treatment in order to bring back the bright white smile you remember from years gone by. In-office laser teeth whitening procedures are quick, easy and affordable. Patients can expect to leave our office with significantly whiter teeth after a single one-hour office visit. Or, if you prefer to whiten your teeth at your own pace and in the privacy of your own home, we offer take-home kits as well. These options can give you the smile you deserve and have been proven to be considerably more effective than over-the-counter whitening products.
Stains, chips and other imperfections can be easily restored with porcelain veneers. Veneers are made from a highly durable thin layer of porcelain that is bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. They are custom crafted to ideally match the size, color and shape of your surrounding natural teeth. The materials used are extremely durable, strong and highly resistant to staining, and will last for many years to come with proper care.
A smile makeover is a great way to correct crooked teeth or small gaps between teeth. Depending on the severity of the issue, the given timeframe for correction and the budget at hand, your dentist may recommend one of many available treatments in order to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. For example, cosmetic bonding, similar to veneers, can fill in small gaps between teeth by adding a thin layer of dental resin to the affected teeth and sculpting it to the desired size and shape. This treatment is also a good option to correct chipped teeth and other minor imperfections. This is a budget-friendly option that can be completed in just one office visit.
And for those who think that it’s just too late to straighten your teeth, Invisalign braces may be just the right solution for you. This system provides a comfortable, removable and virtually invisible way to enhance your smile without the need for uncomfortable and unsightly metal wires and attachments. Your teeth will progressively move into the ideal position in as little as nine – fifteen months, with hardly any inconvenience at all.
Since it is officially refund season, this may be the perfect time for you to take your refund check and invest it in your future with a smile makeover. The new, more confident you will be glad you did.
