The holidays are almost here, which means if you haven’t started ordering presents, it’s almost time to panic. Even if you’re an Amazon Prime member, the official deadline for holiday procrastinators is Saturday, December 22. For non-Prime items, that deadline may be as soon as next week. Whether you’ve clenched your hubby all manner of NFL gear, or scored your children a new game system, there’s someone you shouldn’t forget about: yourself.
What better gift to give yourself this year than the gift of a smile? If at any point this year you’ve found yourself unable to show those teeth due to embarrassment, then cosmetic dentistry just might be the special something that brightens your holidays.
What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
While general dentistry aims provide preventative treatments and dental restoration like crowns, cosmetic dentistry focuses on treatments designed to improve the appearance and function of your smile. Cosmetic dentists realize that looking good is an essential function of your smile. Plus, the health and beauty of your smile are closely linked. Cosmetic dentistry uses state-of-the-art procedures to promote the beauty of your smile for a long time. If you’re looking to improve your smile this holiday, there are several procedures for you.
Are Your Teeth Crooked?
A common complaint of those seeking cosmetic dentistry is teeth that appear crooked. If you didn’t have the opportunity for traditional braces growing up, gaps in teeth, tilted teeth , or other issues can present a problem. If you count yourself as someone worried about crooked teeth, Invisalign is an effective treatment. Using data collected from over 5 million smiles, this system uses methods developed from traditional orthodontics without the need for metal braces. Instead, patients wear several sets of clear BPA-free aligned which slowly pull teeth into place without requiring patients to change their diet.
Have You Recently Lost Teeth?
Losing one or more teeth can feel personal in a way that no other oral complications can. Teeth are an essential part of us, and losing them can feel like a failure. Luckily, you don’t have to live with missing teeth forever. Dental implants are a safe and effective method for replacing missing teeth. Implants are 98 percent successful. They look like natural teeth. They function like natural teeth. Plus, they can last a lifetime.
Want to know how they work? What makes them so successful is their ability to integrate with your body as if they were a natural tooth root. Once we insert the titanium implant, it begins fusing with bone and tissue in a process known as osseointegration. Because this connection is so strong, dental implants don’t require any special cleaning or change in your diet. It will be like having your old teeth back again.
Make this holiday season special by perfecting that smile with cosmetic dentistry. No matter your concerns, we can design a solution for you.
