A person’s smile is one of the first things that others notice about their appearance. Although all of us may be lovely people on the inside, a smile that needs work can leave us feeling less than confident on the outside. However, don’t resign yourself to a less than perfect smile. Cosmetic dentistry can work miracles and it’s more affordable than you might think.
The first step of getting a smile makeover is to meet for a consultation with a cosmetic dentist. He or she will tell you about the options you have, the realistic outcome you should expect, the general price range for the work and the time it should take. Depending on the extent of the work you want to have done, it could take as little as just a couple sessions or several months’ worth of work. Cosmetic dentists are aware that their patients are busy individuals and strive to be as efficient as possible.
Even though you can buy home kits to whiten your teeth, the tooth whitening procedures performed by a cosmetic dentist use a stronger whitening agent. Because of the stronger product and professional supervision, you’re more likely to get the dazzling white teeth you desire from a cosmetic dentist.
Cavities can happen even to adults. The old silver fillings may be the standard but they are also highly noticeable and most people consider them unsightly and unattractive. You can choose tooth-colored resins to fill cavities instead and maintain a more natural-looking mouth.
