Smiling is a natural — and free — antidepressant. Studies show it reduces stress, serves as a mild pain reliever and can reduce heart rate. Smiling makes us feel better and appear more confident, successful and attractive. If you find yourself smiling less often than you should because you’re embarrassed by your smile, we have good news: Cosmetic dentistry makes it possible for you to have the great-looking smile you’ve always wanted while reaping all the benefits of having a smile you’re happy to show off. As the science of cosmetic dentistry has improved, we now have the power to discreetly enhance your smile. Read on for three ways your Kingston cosmetic dentist can transform your smile without anyone knowing.
Teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic dentistry procedure. A typical whitening session can be completed in an hour or less, dramatically freshening — and taking years off — your smile by brightening your teeth at least several shades. While you can buy whitening products like toothpaste, oral rinses and store-bought whitening kits over the counter, professional dental whitenings are far superior because results are more powerful, immediate and substantial. In-office whitening treatments also won’t leave you with spotty results or irritated gums.
Bonding is an affordable and convenient way to address multiple aesthetic dental issues at once, from chips, cracks and small fractures to misshapen teeth, unwanted gaps between teeth and minor crowding and crookedness. Bonding, unlike many other cosmetic procedures, can be completed in a single appointment. A composite material is brushed over the affected tooth, then shaped, polished and blended to match the surrounding natural teeth.
Veneers can correct many of the same issues as bonding, but veneers are permanent. Our cosmetic dentists in the Harriman area work with veneers made of dental porcelain, and the installation requires minimal scraping of the existing tooth structure — only enough on the surface to ensure a flush bond with the front of the tooth or teeth being treated.
