Everyone looks forward to the fresh start of a brand new year. If you’re looking to invest in your smile, here are 5 of the top cosmetic dental treatments to consider so that you can put your best smile forward in 2023.
What Are 5 Of The Top Cosmetic Dental Treatments?
1. Teeth Whitening
If you’re ready for a brighter, whiter smile after years of drinking dark-colored sodas and red wine or maintaining a cigarette or coffee habit, it may be time to invest in professional-grade teeth whitening. Your dentist can give your smile a level of white that you can’t buy over the counter at a pharmacy or grocery store. At Wolter Advanced Dental Care, we are proud to offer Crest Whitening Emulsions for use with or without an LED accelerator. As a take-home option, we also offer custom whitening trays from Opalescence Go. Talk to one of our dental experts for input on which professional whitening option will best suit your needs.
2. SureSmile Clear Aligners
For patients looking to show off a smile free of mild to moderate tooth crookedness or misalignment, SureSmile may be the right choice. SureSmile clear aligners are invisible, removable trays tailor-made to your teeth and a custom treatment plan. With SureSmile, crowded teeth, gapped teeth, overbite, and underbite can be corrected without the discomfort of metal brackets. Because these invisible aligners are removable, you don’t need to experience any inconvenience whatsoever when it comes to eating and drinking, or flossing and brushing. For an estimate on how long the SureSmile process would take for your teeth, speak to your dentist and ask if SureSmile can help you on your smile journey.
Dental veneers serve both cosmetic and restorative purposes. Veneers can address a wide range of dental imperfections and camouflage cosmetic flaws in your smile. High-quality porcelain or tooth-colored composite are used to create coverings that fit over the surface of teeth and address chips, cracks, or gaps in teeth. Misshapen teeth or teeth that are too small can be corrected as well. Veneers are also a highly-effective cosmetic dental treatment because they can whiten the appearance of teeth that don’t respond to traditional whitening treatments. In fact, porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant than natural teeth. With good care, dental veneers can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years.
4. Dental Implants
Replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant is certainly a cosmetic concern. But, you might be surprised to learn that a replacement tooth can help preserve the visual and structural integrity of the rest of your teeth and face as well. When a tooth is missing from your mouth, the remaining healthy teeth can slowly shift toward the empty gap and become misaligned and crooked.
Furthermore, the bone under the tooth gap can also weaken due to lack of stimulation. Over time, this can result in a decrease in bone density and volume, which can cause your nose and chin to become closer, and the corners of your lips to droop downwards. These changes to your face can change the balance or symmetry of your face, and even give you an older appearance. If you are ready for a dental implant, Wolter Advanced Dental Care is proud to offer the latest in sophisticated technology with digitally-planned dental implants.
5. Single-Visit Crowns
At Wolter ADC, you can expect state-of-the-art Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramic (also known as CEREC) for dental crowns prepared and placed on the very same day.
