It’s hard to imagine the summer is almost gone and we’re ahead towards the fall season. With the leaves soon changing colors and holidays not too far away, you likely have a lot on your mind. However, taking care of your smile is as important as ever. If you want to give your teeth and gums a boost, we wanted to share a few cosmetic dental treatments that will help:

  • Teeth Whitening

A teeth whitening is one of the quickest and easiest ways to brighten your teeth. We offer professional take-home whitening trays. You can gradually whiten your teeth over the course of a few weeks. It removes the stains you can’t get rid of with a simple cleaning.

The best time for teeth whitening is four to six weeks before the special occasion. Since the at-home whitening kit may take a few weeks to complete, we recommend starting about eight weeks ahead of time. You don’t want to wait last minute.

  • Dental Veneers

If you have chips, cracks, uneven, or slightly misshapen teeth, you may want to consider dental veneers. These thin shells are bonded to the front of your tooth, giving your smile the appearance of perfect-looking teeth. They can last up to 15 to 20 years with good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.

It’s a relatively smooth process that takes a couple of appointments. Because of that, we recommend getting your veneers about a month ahead of time. 

  • Tooth Bonding

If you want to disguise dental flaws but don’t like the expense of veneers, you’ll want to consider tooth bonding. We apply composite material to your teeth and harden it with a special light. The results can last you for several years. 

Tooth bonding usually takes only one appointment. Getting your treatment a few weeks before the special occasion is ideal. However, if you want to whiten your teeth as well, you’ll want to start in advance as early as possible.

  • Gum Recession Treatment

There are many reasons for a receding gumline. One of the major causes of it is gum disease. It can also result from hard brushing, injury, or teeth grinding, to name a few. Whatever the cause, we can reposition your gumline to a more healthy appearance. 

If you notice that your gums have pulled away from your tooth, it’s important to make an appointment. Beyond a cosmetic issue, it could be a sign of a gum infection. So, you want to get to the underlying concern right away. 

  • ClearCorrect Aligners

If you have misaligned teeth and are tired of seeing crooked teeth in the mirror, we have a solution for you. We offer ClearCorrect aligners, which are practically invisible aligners designed to reposition your teeth. 

Treatment timing is less than braces. Most patients can complete their treatment in about 12 months. So, if you want a brand new smile by next year, it’s time to start today.
