On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your smile?
If you said 8 or higher, then this post probably isn’t for you. Today, we will be discussing cosmetic dentistry and the related services that we offer at Holladay Dental Care.
You have probably met someone with a perfect smile, and there’s a good chance that is one of the things you remember most about that person.
Smiles are one of the things we are most likely to remember when we meet someone for the first time. That’s also true if you have a less than perfect smile.
It also explains why patients come from Salt Lake City to our dentist office in Holladay, UT. If you want to change something about your smile, we probably can help you, too.
Your Smile … Better
The superficial reason to consider cosmetic dentistry is to make your smile look nicer. There’s nothing wrong with that, but we have seen that cosmetic dentistry often means something more for the person receiving the service.
For some patients, their teeth have become a source of shame. It’s hurt their confidence in social situations, and it’s held them back from pursuing career and job opportunities.
You may be surprised how different people can feel when they aren’t ashamed to show their teeth when meeting someone for the first time.
We’ve seen that fixing a problem with someone’s teeth really can change their view of themselves for the better.
Talk To Us
You’ve seen photos of yourself. You’ve looked in the mirror. You have a good idea what your teeth look like.
You also probably know if there is something that you would like to change about your smile. You may even have an image of a perfect smile. Maybe it’s the smile of someone you know, or maybe it’s a smile you have seen in a profile in some celebrity magazine.
You can have that smile, too, if you want.
Let us show you how. If you schedule a consultation at our office, we will listen to what you would wish was different about your smile. We may examine your teeth since the health of your mouth may affect what treatments are available for you.
Together we can help you develop a plan to get the smile you have dreamed of having. It may be as simple as a single service, or it may involve a combination of services to create your new smile.
Consider Your Options
If you are giving thought to cosmetic dentistry, you may want to know what is possible. We don’t have much space to explain it in this post, but we want to give you a brief overview of our services.
Teeth Whitening — Sometimes the simplest solution is also the best solution. Professional teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most effective ways to improve the appearance of your smile.
The bleaching agents can remove stains that took years to develop in about an hour if you receive an in-office treatment. We also offer take-home products. These won’t work as quickly, but they will give you comparable results if you use them as directed.
Cosmetic Bonding — Our dental bonding material is made to match the color of teeth. This makes it great for repairing small issue you have with individual teeth.
With cosmetic bonding, you can repair chipped and worn down teeth, fill cracked teeth, and fill cavities so no one know which of your teeth had tooth decay.
Gum Reshaping — A gummy smile can pose a unique problem. Most of the time when people think of cosmetic dentistry, they think about doing something to change the appearance of their teeth.
If you have a gummy smile, then your problem may be that not enough of your teeth are visible. Gum reshaping is a safe and efficient way to reveal more of your pearly whites.
Invisalign — This short-term orthodontic treatment is a great way to transform your smile. After all, changing the position of your teeth will definitely change how your smile looks.
Veneers — Veneers are like a utility player on a baseball team. It seems like they can do everything. Veneers can make your teeth look whiter, your smile look straighter, and your chipped and worn down teeth look whole again.
Since we use DURAthin veneers in our office, you will be happy to know that they require little or no preparation to your teeth.
