Everyone wants to look their best and feel good come summer. It’s a time of year that is designed to be full of smiles and relaxation and enjoyment. But if your teeth don’t match your frame of mind, it might be time to consider a smile makeover so you can get the smile you’ve always wanted and the confidence boost you deserve.

1. Brighten Up

If you’re looking for a quick and easy smile makeover, one treatment can make that happen in just about an hour – professional teeth whitening. For qualified candidates, this customized procedure will dramatically whiten your teeth and even give imperfect teeth the illusion of flawlessness. If you’d rather whiten your smile on your own time, take-home whitening trays are also an option. Either way, you’ll feel as bright as the sun with a whitened smile.

2. Make Some Tweaks

If you have one tooth that has long marred your smile, one possible way to correct the problem is with a tooth-colored filling. Fillings aren’t only used for correcting tooth decay. They can be used to fix teeth that are broken, damaged, stained, or gapped. Since the composite is white, any repair will look natural next to your tooth enamel. Many people opt for composite fillings as part of their smile makeover so they can get rid of unsightly and unhealthy silver fillings.

3. Conceal Imperfections

When you have larger imperfections in a few teeth and want to just cover everything and make it go away, ask your dentist about the viability of a porcelain crown. This restoration does an even more robust job than a tooth-colored filling by capping an entire tooth. If you have a tooth that’s misshapen, cracked, weak, or deteriorating, a customized porcelain crown will be designed just for you and bonded to the tooth in question to cover and protect it.

4. Fill in the Spaces

Are you missing a tooth? Whether you lost a tooth to a sports injury or accident, had to undergo an extraction because of a deep infection, or an adult tooth never erupted, these holes in your smile cause both aesthetic and functional problems. Besides having an obvious hole in your smile, the absence of one or more teeth will eventually compromise the shape of your face and your overall oral health. When you fill in the spaces with a dental implant, you prevent nearby teeth from damaging tissue or alignment and you reinforce the foundation of your smile.

5. Fix Everything

Ready to do a major aesthetic overhaul of your smile? Porcelain veneers are the cosmetic dentistry treatment that can change everything in just two visits to your Hampton dentist. Veneers are customized in size, shape, length, and color so they flatter your face shape, skin tone, and deliver a symmetrical smile. Whether you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, crooked, or otherwise, every cosmetic imperfection can be concealed with veneers.
