You’ve probably noticed that we live in a world that is obsessed with celebrities.
For better or worse, we often look to celebrity magazines to see the latest fashions and styles. You may have even shown your hair stylist a photo of an actor because you wanted a similar haircut.
Have you considered doing the same thing at the dentist office? No, we don’t mean asking the dentist to give you a haircut.
We mean asking your dentist how you can get a “Hollywood smile.” They are easy to find. All you have to do is search for celebrity smile online.
At Holladay Dental Studio, we can help you get that smile that you’ve been dreaming about seeing in the mirror with our cosmetic dentistry. If you live in or near Salt Lake City, it’s worth your time to make the drive to our dentist office in Holladay.
Why You Should Consider Cosmetic Dentistry
You may be thinking that cosmetic dentistry is just for the rich and famous. It’s true that many celebrities have improved their teeth when they achieved success.
Cosmetic services aren’t reserved for the rich and famous, however. We see patients every day who wish they had a better smile.
In fact, some patients who come to our office are embarrassed by their teeth. Some go out of their way to hide their teeth from other people. They never smile in photos, and they hold their hands over the mouths whenever they speak or eat.
No one should feel ashamed of their smile, and we want to help you get a smile that you are proud to share — in person and on Facebook.
Below, we have identified some common things that people don’t like about their teeth and some cosmetic services that can fix those issues.
▶︎ If your teeth are yellow or discolored …
Then you should look into teeth whitening or veneers.
You may think you are familiar with teeth whitening products because you have seen the toothpastes, mouthrinses, trays and gels, and whitening strips at the supermarket. You won’t find anything as effective as Opalescence Boost in the grocery store, however.
Opalescence Boost is a professional whitening system that is more powerful and more effective at removing stains than any commercial product. We offer both in-office and take-home products depending on your preference.
Teeth whitening products can remove stains, but what do you do if your teeth are discolored for a different reason? That’s when you can get veneers instead.
Our DURAthin veneers are a shell that can be used to cover your teeth. When bonded in place, they look like your natural teeth, only brighter and whiter.
▶︎ If you have a chipped tooth …
Then you could consider veneers or tooth bonding.
Once again, veneers can be used to hide your teeth and present a fully formed smile to the world.
Tooth bonding is a great alternative if you want to fix one tooth. Like veneers, the bonding material will look natural while restoring your damaged tooth to its original shape.
▶︎ If you have a gummy smile …
Maybe your problem isn’t your teeth as much as it is that people can’t see them when you smile. If you have been told that you have a “gummy” smile, then we can help.
This may happen if you have an abundance of gum tissue in your mouth. Your gums are affecting how your lips part when you smile. By removing some of your gum tissue, your lips will open in a way the reveals more of your pearly whites.
▶︎ If you have gaps in your smile …
Once again, you could turn to veneers. We don’t mean to sound like we are on a loop, but veneers can be made to close that space in you smile. If you haven’t guessed, veneers are one of the most versatile products in cosmetic dentistry.
Another option would be an orthodontic treatment. You may not think of orthodontics as a cosmetic service, but one of their benefits is fixing the alignment of your teeth. When this happens, it also improves the appearance of your smile.
One of the orthodontic options we provide to our patients is Invisalign. This system uses clear, plastic aligners to gently push your teeth into a new position. And because the aligners are clear, most people won’t realize you are wearing them.
