Get ready for great times with family and friends – summertime is nearly here! You are going to be in the best position to enjoy those moments when you are confident and comfortable with your smile. Your cosmetic dentist in Rocky Mount can address any issue you might have with treatments to restore your grin and confidence. Read along as they explain a few services that can have you shining this summer!

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Do you have just 1-2 teeth that could use some sprucing up, perhaps to correct a minor chip or thin gap? Cosmetic dental bonding uses a composite resin applied to a tooth to artfully reshape it and make any blemishes disappear. Your dentist can sculpt your tooth to perfection and then harden the material with a curing light. The painless procedure only takes about one hour and is one of the most affordable cosmetic solutions.

Metal-Free Restorations

If you have a tooth that needs repair, metal-free restorations can restore not only its strength but beauty as well. The crowns and bridges are custom-made from dental porcelain. Your dentist uses it to create a strong and reliable restoration that’s so lifelike no one will know you’ve had dental work! Your results will look and feel virtually seamless.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. If your teeth are stained or discolored due to years of drinking wine, coffee, or tea, your dentist can provide you with a set of custom-fitted trays and professional-strength bleaching gel. After two weeks of at-home use, your teeth will be 6-10 shades whiter.

In-office whitening is also an option. Upon placing a protective barrier on the gums, a whitening solution made of 15-35 percent carbamide peroxide (the active ingredient that removes stains) is applied to the enamel. In just one hour, your teeth can be whitened up to eight shades!

Porcelain Veneers

Do you have numerous cosmetic flaws? Porcelain veneers might be the ideal solution for you. The durable sheaths of porcelain are adhered to the front surfaces of teeth, concealing any imperfection from view. In as few as two office visits, veneers can fix:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Severe staining and discoloration
  • Slight gaps between teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Short or stubby teeth

Since the material mimics your original enamel, you can enjoy a natural-looking smile that will last for many years to come!

Summer is about to begin, so there’s still time to enhance your smile and show it off under the sun. Ask your cosmetic dentist in Rocky Mount about these treatments and soon you will be beaming with restored confidence!
