Don’t you want your smile to look its best this summer? With the end of Covid-19 restrictions, it’ll be the first time in a while that people can gather for sunny fun. Consequently, friends and family will get close enough to see the state of your teeth. Don’t start the season by showing them chips, cracks, or stains! Instead, see your cosmetic dentist in Frisco so your pearly whites are as beautiful as the best summer hotspots. In particular, consider trying one (or more) of these three cosmetic dental treatments!

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a porcelain shell layered onto the front surface of a patient’s tooth. Covering said surface hides dental imperfections like chips, cracks, or discoloration. The porcelain material ensures that the final result will appear naturally white and blend in with natural teeth. Due to being durable and stain-resistant, a veneer can last between fifteen to twenty years with proper oral care.

The bonding process applies a tooth-colored resin that securely holds the veneer. Full treatment can be done in as few as two appointments.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures. Similar to veneer treatments, it applies a tooth-colored resin to teeth. However, this composite resin improves teeth’s color, size, shape, and proportion on its own. Customized to match your enamel, the plastic material molds to achieve your desired appearance.

Compared to the alternatives, this treatment is quick and affordable. Dentists can complete it in a single appointment that takes less than an hour.

Gum Recontouring

Smiles are sometimes marred by gums rather than teeth themselves. In particular, gums that overshadow your teeth can make a smile seem “gummy.” Thankfully, treatment can solve this issue.

Gum recontouring is when dentists use a soft tissue laser to reduce the amount of gum tissue covering your teeth. The laser can also make the gum line appear more even overall. As a result, your teeth have more room to display their white, uniform shine.

Recontouring is known for its safety. In particular, laser dentistry is recommended for those worried about pain or bothered by dental drills.

Summer should be about making happy memories. Contact your dentist to see if the above cosmetic treatments could make your smile worth remembering!
