Do you send out a holiday greeting card with your family’s photo on it? Perhaps you get the whole family together to pose for a picture on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. There are certainly a lot of pictures taken during the holiday season. Is your smile photo ready?
If you’re too embarrassed to flash your smile for the camera, it’s time to consider cosmetic dentistry.
At Biggers Family Dentistry, we offer two cosmetic dentistry services that can transform your smile in time for the holidays: dental veneers and teeth whitening. Learn more about each treatment below to get a better idea of which one may work best for you.
Makeover Your Smile With Dental Veneers
If you’ve been hiding your smile because of discolored, worn down, chipped, misaligned, misshapen, or gapped teeth, dental veneers may be the treatment you’ve been looking for. Dental veneers can completely transform your smile without the need for orthodontics or replacement teeth.
Dental veneers are super thin shells made of porcelain or resin composite materials, which are custom-made to cover the front surface of your teeth to hide imperfections. The shells bond to the front of your teeth to ensure they’re durable and natural looking. With dental veneers, we can change the color, size, shape, or length of your teeth.
At Biggers Family Dentistry, we offer the following types of veneers:
- e.max veneers
e.max veneers are made of a natural-looking ceramic material. A small amount of enamel is removed before e.max veneers are bonded to your teeth.
- Prepless veneers
Prepless veneers don’t require the removal of dental enamel, which makes them reversible.
Veneers can last 7-15 years with proper care and maintenance. However, no special care is required for dental veneers. Just remember to brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, and see us at least twice a year for teeth cleanings and dental exams.
We will go over everything during your consultation with us, so you’re well prepared and know exactly what to expect.
With dental veneers, you can leave our office with a picture-perfect, natural looking smile!
Brighten Your Smile With Teeth Whitening
If the color of your teeth is your main concern, teeth whitening may be the right treatment for you. Professional teeth whitening is a simple way to bring new life to your smile, ensuring that it shines brightly in all of your holiday photos.
In our office, we will take impressions of your teeth and use them to make customized whitening trays. What our patients particularly love about our teeth whitening treatment is that they can take the trays home and whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home.
The trays are comfortable and completely cover the surface of your teeth for even whitening, unlike over-the-counter treatments that are uncomfortable, less effective, and don’t fully cover the surface of your teeth.
Our professional teeth whitening trays are worn for 30-60 minutes and yield better and brighter results than drugstore teeth whitening products.
You might be surprised by how much of a difference teeth whitening can make not only for your smile but your self-confidence as well. By whitening your teeth several shades, suddenly you’ll feel like you can’t stop smiling!
