In the next few weeks, you are going to start popping up in a lot of photographs. Between your office party, Christmas parties, and New Year’s, your face is going to appear frequently in dozens of pictures. When everyone sees them, what is going to be the first thing that they notice? Will it be your beautiful smile? Don’t think it’s possible? Your cosmetic dentist in Scottsdale, Dr. Alex Martin, can give you a new smile for the New Year.
Why Would I Want Cosmetic Dentistry?
Unfortunately, even healthy teeth are not always aesthetically pleasing. A complete smile should be healthy and beautiful. It can make you feel more confident and motivate you to be more outgoing, which is especially handy this time of year. Cosmetic dentistry has the power to impact more than just your teeth. Studies show that having a positive self-image is actually good for your health. Dr. Martin has a variety of ways he can do this for you.
Years of coffee, wine, tobacco, and simple ageing can leave your teeth looking discolored and dull. Opalescence teeth whitening is an easy way to turn back the clock and bring your smile back to life. It works by applying a highly-concentrated bleaching gel to your teeth to break up ground-in stains. It can easily make your teeth 6-10 shades whiter in one session. All this can be done in our office in about an hour, making it work for anyone’s schedule.
We can also empower you to whiten your teeth at home by providing you with a custom-made tray and the potent bleaching gel. You simply need to wear the tray with the gel for 30 minutes a day for two weeks to drastically whiten your teeth. This can be used as a treatment on its own or as a touch-up for your in-office whitening.
One of the quickest and easiest ways to repair a variety of cosmetic issues is with cosmetic bonding. A custom-shaded composite resin will be bonded to your teeth and molded to improve their shape, size, color, and alignment. The resin is then instantly hardened using a UV light. You can have the entire procedure done in about an hour, and the results can last for years with regular brushing and flossing.
Whenever Dr. Martin repairs one of your teeth that has been damaged by decay or injury, he wants them not only to be strong, but beautiful as well. Tooth-colored fillings enable him to fix your teeth in such a way that they will seamlessly blend with the rest of your smile. The tooth-color resin also bonds to your teeth better than traditional metal-fillings, ensuring a better looking, longer-lasting result.
For teeth that need a little more help, porcelain crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays can restore a tooth that has been significantly damaged or gone missing entirely. They all look like your natural teeth while being just as strong and durable.
You can also completely rebuild a missing tooth using dental implants. They are the only procedure that restores the root of your tooth as well as the crown. They are becoming more common every day, and have a 98% success rate. They can be used to replace a single tooth, anchor a bridge, or even support a set of dentures.
One of the most comprehensive cosmetic procedures involves porcelain veneers. The procedure itself is straightforward and painless, but the results are astounding. You can address a variety of cosmetic issues such as damaged teeth, discoloration, misalignment, and even obvious gaps in just two easy visits. Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that are securely bonded to the front of your teeth. Not only will they give you a beautiful smile, but also teeth you can rely on day to day.
If you are looking to get similar results in less time, you may opt to get lumineers. They are thinner than porcelain veneers and don’t require as much preparation, and are perfect for people who want a better smile fast.
Need to straighten your teeth but don’t want to deal with the look and discomfort of metal braces? Invisalign/ClearCorrect gives you the best of everything when it comes to appearance, effectiveness, and comfort. They use clear plastic aligner trays to gently and gradually straighten your teeth over time. Only you will notice that you are wearing the aligners because they are nearly invisible. They are easily removable, so you can eat and clean your teeth just like you always have. Straighter teeth are actually easier to keep clean, ensuring your long-term health. You get all of the benefits of braces without any of the drawbacks.
Which Procedure is Right For Me?
The first step to getting your new smile is to make an appointment with your dentist in Scottsdale. That way, Dr. Martin can come up with a plan just for you. You will be part of the entire process so that you know you are getting the exact results you want. The smile you’ve always dreamed of is waiting for you, so don’t hesitate to call us today and start getting it.
