If you have found that you are no longer happy with the way your teeth look, especially when you smile, you might want to consider some of the cosmetic dentistry services you can get. There's no reason to be unhappy with your smile or try to hide it when you want to laugh or smile for the camera. Take a few moments to go over the following types of cosmetic dentistry to see what would help you the most:
While you might have tried teeth whitening products sold at your local drugstore, what is used at the dentist's office is much stronger. The teeth whitening, or bleaching agent, that is used will brighten your teeth and last a lot longer than anything found in the stores. Instead of having to redo the treatment every couple of weeks, the professional whitening will need to be done again in maybe six months or so. Many people find that they actually save money in the long run by getting their teeth professionally whitened.
Have you ever looked at the perfectly aligned, perfectly shaped, white teeth of celebrities and thought to yourself that you would love to have a smile like that? If so, then what you might want to look into further is dental veneers. The dental veneers that are placed over your shaven teeth will be customized to be the perfect shade of white and the perfect size for your face and mouth structure. You do not have to get the super bright white veneers if you feel that it would be too obvious. There are different shades of white you can pick from and your dentist can help you decide which one might be best for you. It is important to know that while the veneers last for many years, you might have to get a new set later in life, especially if you are young when getting them for the first time.
You should now be ready to contact your dentist. Call to schedule an appointment with your dentist to discuss what options they think might be best for you for the results you are trying to achieve. You can then discuss the cost and whether they accept credit cards, payment plans, or if they offer credit through their office. Since this type of work is considered strictly cosmetic, you will most likely not be able to get your dental insurance company to cover the cost.
