Smile Makeover Ideas For the Holidays
A smile makeover can be an excellent way to give yourself the boost you need during the holiday season and into the new year. If you’re not comfortable in photos, or if you don’t feel like you look your best, making some simple changes to your smile can improve your mood and self-confidence as well as your overall appearance. Check out these ideas for holiday smile makeovers in Newport Beach.
Do you have one or two specific teeth that are causing aesthetic concerns? Cosmetic bonding is a type of dental treatment that uses tooth-colored composite resins that are formed over teeth to cover surface flaws. It’s a non-invasive procedure and an affordable alternative to more complex dental veneers or crowns. Many people choose cosmetic bonding as an efficient way to improve their smile and erase signs of chips, gaps, or discoloration in their teeth. The entire process only takes about an hour to complete from start to finish. Numbing may not even be necessary.
If you’re unhappy with your smile as a whole, our Newport Beach cosmetic dentist might recommend porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material that are bonded over the front of your teeth to hide chips, stains, and change their shape. Veneers completely change the appearance of your smile by making look straighter, whiter, and properly shaped. A typical dental veneers process usually requires one planning appointment and then two stages of treatment (the prepping and the final placement.) You get to play a key role in how your smile looks!
A smile makeover can be quite beneficial in terms of appearance and functionality. If your smile has experienced a lot of “wear and tear”, porcelain crowns can serve a dual purpose. Cosmetic dental crowns are used to repair and protect broken or worn teeth while also enhancing their appearance. Crowns are often made from porcelain or ceramic material that matches natural tooth color, making them almost unnoticeable. We recommend them for treating areas with aggressive decay, fractures, after root canal therapy, or to top off individual dental implants if you have a missing tooth.
Tooth and Gum Recontouring
A smile makeover may involve tooth and gum recontouring to smooth out uneven edges and lines in your smile’s overall shape. Gum recontouring adjusts your gumlines for a consistent “frame” around your smile, while tooth recontouring smoothes out uneven edges in your tooth enamel. Sometimes creating more harmonious lines and evening out symmetry across your smile is all that you need to look your best. Tooth and/or gum recontouring typically only requires one appointment.
If you want whiter teeth for your holiday party or family gathering, there are three types of whitening methods to choose from: professional in-office whitening, take-home whitening kits and over-the-counter strips and pens. Whichever option you choose, be sure to see our Newport Beach cosmetic dentist first, to make sure your smile is healthy enough to whiten (as a side note, you don’t want to bleach your teeth if you have tooth-colored restorations in that area.)
For the best results possible, always go with a professional teeth whitening system. These products are highly concentrated and gentle to use. You’ll see faster and more dramatic whitening compared to products sold in stores. An in-office same-day procedure can lighten your tooth color by as much as 7-8 shades or so. Not in such a rush? See the same results with a custom take-home kit that you wear for about an hour a day; full results are usually visible in just under two weeks.
Update Old Dental Work
Consider updating your old dental work with attractive tooth-colored options. Change out old metal fillings or discolored crowns with white fillings or ceramic versions. A fresh, new smile can be life-changing! Especially when areas of stain, discoloration, or older restorations are visible across the front of your smile. Today’s modern restoration options are both attractive and durable, for a long-lasting impact on your oral health. Your customized treatment plan will take a tooth-by-tooth approach to your smile makeover for the best overall results.
Payment Plans Available
The holidays are great for getting together with family and friends, but they can also be a stressful time of year. Luckily, you can take some of that stress away by looking and feeling your best.
