We’re right in the middle of summer, so why are we talking about your holiday smile? Because now is the perfect time to get started on yours! With about six months to go before holiday parties, get-togethers, and other events, you’ve still got plenty of time to get your smile into shape.
Imagine this scene. You’re at a friend’s holiday party this December. There are many people there – some you know, but there are many unfamiliar faces in the crowd as well. You naturally want to make the best impression possible; it’s just human nature.
A beautiful smile is one of the best ways to create a favorable first impression on someone. In fact, according to a recent survey, 45 percent of people believe that a smile is a person’s best feature, no matter their age. And like it or not, people will judge us on the quality of our smile. They can’t help but do it, especially at the subconscious level.
But there’s something you can do about it. The pro dental team at Beaumont Family Dentistry offers you a variety of cosmetic dentistry services that we can customize to your specific needs. One of our experienced dentists will use their skills to create just the look you’ve been dreaming about.
How do you think so many celebrities get their beautiful smiles? Most of the time they’re not natural – they just have a great cosmetic dentist they rely on to give them their gorgeous grin.
With that thought in mind, we outline below just a few of the cosmetic treatments that we might use to help you create your new holiday smile.
Spruce Up Your Smile With Dental Veneers
If you’re suffering from a drab and damaged smile, you owe it to yourself to find out more about dental veneers. Dr. Takacs or one of our other dentists can use these thin shells to hide many types of tooth flaws. Veneers will bond to the front of imperfect teeth to quickly repair cracks, chips, deep stains, misshapen teeth, and worn teeth.
There’s nothing quite like veneers when it comes to a fast and dramatic smile transformation. In fact, veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics” because they can quickly remake your smile. Only two appointments are usually needed to get you your new smile.
We’ll begin by removing a small amount of tooth enamel, if necessary, to make room for your veneers. Then we’ll take impressions of your teeth so that our lab partner can custom craft your new dental restorations.
When they’re ready, you’ll return to our office and our dentist will use dental cement to bond them into place. They’ll make any final adjustments necessary to ensure a perfect fit and beautiful look. You’ll leave our office with brand-new confidence and ready for any holiday party or get-together!
Put Some Zest in Your Smile With Teeth Whitening
There’s nothing that says success quite like a bright, white smile. You can get your whitest and most attractive smile yet with teeth whitening treatment from Beaumont Family Dentistry. We offer our patients two great lines of whitening products, Zoom and KöR. Both are fantastic at whitening teeth quickly and safely.
Plus, you’ll have your choice of either whitening your teeth in our office or whitening them conveniently at home. We’ll discuss all your whitening options and help you decide which one will best suit your needs.
In-office treatment will give you the fastest, most dramatic results. In just a few minutes spent in our dental chair, we can whiten your teeth several shades! There’s no over-the-counter whitening kit or strips that can offer that.
If you’d like the convenience of whitening treatment at home, we’ll provide you with custom-fit trays and a concentrated solution that you can use whenever you want. Brighten your teeth while watching TV, reading, or even soaking in the tub. You’ll have your new smile in a matter of days, not weeks.
Once your teeth are pearly white again, you may want to explore other cosmetic dentistry services such as orthodontics, detailed below.
We Give You Several Ways to Straighten Your Smile
Depending on your individual needs and timeline, we have three orthodontic treatments for you to choose from.
Fastbraces® is our quickest way to straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces that move the crowns and roots of your teeth in separate phases, Fastbraces® moves both at the same time.
Using special, triangular brackets and a heat-sensitive wire, this system moves your teeth crowns and roots quickly and with less discomfort than standard orthodontics. You could complete your treatment in as few as 120 days!
We also offer innovative orthodontics using Invisalign. While not as fast as Fastbraces®, this method does have the added benefit of nearly invisible treatment. Rather than metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic teeth aligners to move your teeth into their proper positions. The aligners are comfortable and quick; others will barely notice you’re wearing them, if at all.
If the condition of your teeth requires more straightening power, you can enjoy discreet treatment with clear ceramic braces. Our dentist will use tooth-colored brackets and natural-looking rubber bands that will blend in with your teeth. While still using a metal wire, this method offers the best of traditional metal braces and discreet orthodontic treatment.
