Many people think about getting cosmetic dental procedures done, but never follow through. While there are plenty of reasons for this (such as fear, or concern about the cost), one major reason that so many people never follow through on their plans to improve their smile is convenience. Often, a cosmetic procedure can seem like a big undertaking, which can make people hesitant to dedicate the time and energy to making it happen.
But what if you could have a smile makeover in just one visit to your dentist? For some cosmetic procedures, you can! Here are two improvements you can make to the appearance of your teeth in just one appointment.
A Whiter Smile
Is your smile yellower than you’d like? Maybe it’s stained from years of a coffee habit you can’t kick, tobacco use, or just the natural discoloration that comes with age. Did you know that you can walk into élan and walk out an hour later with a brilliantly white smile?
We use Zoom Whitening for our in-office whitening procedure. The Zoom Whitening system uses a special whitening gel that will be applied to your teeth in stages. A special light activates the gel and penetrates into the enamel to target and eliminate stains and discoloration. The whole process will only take about an hour, and can whiten teeth up to eight shades. Zoom Whitening is effective on stains caused by food and drink, tobacco use, and aging.
And if that’s not white enough, bring some take-home whitening kits back with you. Dr. Meghan Hodges offers professional strength whitening trays custom-made to fit your teeth. In ten to fourteen days, you can have your whitest smile — and the whole process can happen in the comfort of your own home.
No More Imperfections
Are a few little imperfections keeping you from being proud of your smile? A chip or a slightly misaligned tooth is a small problem, but it can throw off an otherwise perfect smile. In a single appointment, dental bonding can resolve a number of small aesthetic problems, such as chipped or cracked teeth, gaps, teeth that are too short or misshapen, and even spots of specific discoloration.
Your cosmetic dentist will use a composite resin that is custom tinted to perfectly match your teeth, so the final result will be completely natural looking. Best of all, this can usually be completed in a single appointment.
If you’ve been putting off cosmetic procedures because they seem inconvenient, now is the time to rethink that decision. You could have a more beautiful smile in just one dental appointment. What are you waiting for?
