Are you ready for summer vacation? After all, this is the time of year that you have been waiting for ever since the beginning of winter. One way that you can get ready for the warmer weather is by preparing your smile for everything to come. Whether you are planning on spending time with friends by the pool or you are splurging on a beach vacation, you want to feel confident about your pearly whites. Here are a few treatments to consider.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth become discolored over time for a variety of different reasons, including pigmented beverages, tobacco products, and aging. However, discoloration is still one of the most common things that people feel self-conscious about. This can be reduced significantly with a professional take-home whitening kit from your dentist. First, your dentist will take impression of your bite in order to design custom whitening trays that perfectly fit your teeth while protecting the soft tissues of your mouth. You will also be given a whitening agent that is stronger than anything you can find in stores. In just a matter of two weeks, you will be showing off beautiful, dramatic results.

Cosmetic Bonding

If you notice that you have small imperfections in your smile that you would like to have corrected, cosmetic bonding is an excellent, affordable option. This treatment involves the use of a tooth-colored composite resin that’s sculpted to the tooth to fill in chips, gaps, cracks, cover stains, and correct other cosmetic flaws. This can be completed in just one appointment and doesn’t require any of the protective tooth enamel to be removed.

Dental Veneers

For those looking for a more dramatic, long-lasting smile makeover, dental veneers could be the treatment you’re looking for. After a small amount of your protective enamel is removed, thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain are placed of the front surface of the teeth to cover up flaws, like chips, gaps, discoloration, misshapen teeth, and teeth that are slightly misaligned. This is the staple of many celebrities because it gives patients that beautiful, red carpet smile that looks so gorgeous on the big screen. If this is what you’re dreaming of, veneers might be for you!

There isn’t a better time to work towards the smile of your dreams than this summer. Talk to your dentist to build a plan that’s right for you!
