Everyone knows that it feels great to smile, but you may not know why. Researchers have found that “feel-good” chemicals are released in your brain every time you smile, even if it’s not a genuine smile. Studies have also shown that smiling makes other people perceive you as younger, thinner, more intelligent, attractive and likable. That’s a whole lot of reasons to smile! But, sadly, some people don’t like their smile enough to show it off, which can really affect their confidence. The good news is that there are multiple cosmetic procedures, including porcelain veneers in Fort Worth, that can completely transform your smile and are a lot easier than you might expect. Learn more about how a smile makeover can benefit you below!
Professional whitening is a fantastic way to quickly enhance your smile. You can change the color of your teeth up to 10 shades and erase the effects from years of drinking coffee, tea and red wine.
In addition, you’ll have a set of custom-made whitening trays that you can use for many years. Most people need to touch up their results about once a year, which you can easily do by simply picking up a refill of professional strength whitening gel after your initial treatment.
Cosmetic bonding is the use of white filling material (the same material used for tooth-colored fillings) to repair small chips, cracks or gaps.
It can also be used to repair any cavities on the front teeth and restore a beautiful, healthy appearance. Also, bonding can be done in just one appointment!
Porcelain veneers are an outstanding solution for many cosmetic issues. Strong, wafer-thin, “shells,” they’re adhered to the front of the teeth to give them a whole new appearance.
They can be done in 2-3 appointments and are perfect for any of the following flaws:
- Minor crowding of the front teeth
- Chips and cracks
- Severe staining or discoloration
How Can A Smile Makeover Benefit You?
A smile makeover does more than just change your smile – it can change the way you carry yourself in every area of life.
The best way to know which of these procedures will benefit you the most is to schedule a consultation with a dentist in Fort Worth who has advanced training and years of experience. That way, you can discuss your goals and get a treatment plan with one or several of these procedures that will work together to give you the final result you’re after.
Most people aren’t born with a smile they love. But with cosmetic dentistry, you can get a whole new smile – and the confidence to go with it – more easily than you think!
