Starting a new job? Meeting new people? Afraid to show your smile? Don’t let discolored, chipped, decayed, or crooked teeth stand in the way of putting your best self out there. Here are 5 reasons to get a smile makeover in Federal Way with a qualified cosmetic dentist.
Build Your Confidence
The first thing you notice about someone is their smile. If your smile isn’t giving the kind first impression you want, it can affect your confidence and comfort with other people. However, you can visit with a cosmetic dentist and fix issues with your smile to boost your self-esteem and give you the confidence you need.
Take Advantage of Advanced Materials
Several dental solutions can correct imperfect teeth and restore your confidence using more advanced materials than in years past. These solutions include high-quality, tooth-colored dental crowns, inlays, and onlays. You can also get composite resin fillings that are shaded to match natural enamel. Many cosmetic dentists these days perform restorative treatments that are metal-free, which means less sensitivity for you and stronger tooth structure over time.
For small improvements to your smile—like closing a gap or smoothing an uneven surface—direct tooth bonding can help. It’s more affordable than veneers, and takes about half an hour to an hour to complete one tooth. For teeth with multiple imperfections, porcelain veneers may be the answer. Applied over the entire affected tooth, veneers appear just like real teeth and can last for years with proper maintenance.
Brighten Your Smile
Over time and because of exposure to certain foods or drinks, your teeth’s natural whiteness can fade. It may seem like a small step, but whitening your teeth alone can make a huge difference to your smile. If you choose to whiten, go with a qualified cosmetic dentist for the best results. Professional teeth whitening is much more effective than over-the-counter solutions.
Improve Your Oral Health
Did you know that cosmetic dental procedures can contribute to your oral health? For example, with crooked or misaligned teeth, it can be more challenging to floss efficiently and therefore keep your teeth healthy and strong. It is easier to maintain straight, clean, healthy teeth. Why not give yourself the best chance at perfect oral health?
In reality, there’s no reason not to get a smile makeover. Stop suffering and get the smile you’ve always wanted!
