The holidays are right around the corner, and so are all the Christmas parties, family gatherings, and good times. While you can’t wait for all the presents and great food, there is one thing you’re not looking forward to: the annual Christmas card photo. You’ll be sending that Christmas card to all your friends and family, and you’re always distracted by the imperfections in your teeth. Before those holiday pictures go out for the world to see, give yourself the gift of a great smile. Talk to your Farmington cosmetic dentist about your options for a picture-perfect smile that you’re excited to show off!
Stained or Discolored Teeth
Do you love to drink all the holiday- flavored coffee that comes out this time of year? Do you sometimes miss brushing your teeth because you stayed up late watching Hallmark movies? Chances are that your teeth might not be as white as fresh snow. Plaque and coffee, among many other things, contain acids that break down your enamel. Once that enamel is compromised, stains and discoloration quickly settle in.
Teeth whitening is a quick and effective treatment for all kinds of discolored teeth. This popular cosmetic dentistry service uses a professional grade peroxide containing bleach to restore a brilliant white shine to your teeth. With just one quick appointment, you’ll be ready to show off your pearly whites!
Cracks and Chips in Your Teeth
Don’t let cracks and gaps chip away at your confidence this holiday season. If you’re worried about imperfections in your smile, metal-free restorations are here to help. Cracks, chips, and gaps can all be filled in with a biocompatible dental ceramic that is long-lasting and looks natural.
Do you have traditional metal fillings that feel like they stand out as much as Rudolph’s nose? You can easily replace your current metal fillings with tooth-colored ones that blend in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, while also protecting them from future damage.
Have you always wanted a straighter smile, but would rather get a stocking full of coal instead of a mouth full of brackets and wires? If crooked teeth are what have you hiding your smile, Invisalign clear braces are what you’re looking for. Invisalign uses sets of clear, removable alignment trays to comfortably, quickly, and conveniently straighten your teeth over time. Since they’re nearly invisible, you can confidently smile while your teeth get straighter.
Get ready to take your best holiday photos yet, and gift yourself the merry and bright smile that you’ve always wanted!
