New Year, New Smile: Simple Ways to Improve Your Smile in 2023
The beginning of a new year is a great opportunity to pause and reflect on what we would like to achieve. It’s the ideal moment for a ‘reset’ when we let go of the past and focus on our future goals.
With this in mind, what are you hoping to achieve with your smile? Your dream smile might be a lot more achievable than you think with some straightforward treatment options at your Dentist.
It is common for our teeth to become discoloured due to erosion or staining. However, we do not need to accept this, and can undertake tooth whitening treatment at our local dental clinic to achieve brighter teeth.
Teeth whitening typically involves the application of a bleaching gel to the teeth in the clinic that is activated by a light. This gel may be reapplied several times, with protection to the gums during this process. The result can be a rapid change in the brightness and whiteness of your teeth. A professional tooth cleaning at your dentist Central Coast may also be a way of removing visible plaque.
Dental veneers are a ‘facing’ or ‘shell’ that is placed onto the teeth at the front of the mouth. They are highly customisable in terms of shape, size and colour, and can be matched to your natural tooth colour for a convincing effect. They are a preferred treatment method because they involve minimal change to your natural teeth, are so customisable, and aren’t prone to staining. They are ideal if your teeth are imperfectly shaped or positioned, or if they are too discoloured to treat with teeth whitening.
Invisalign clear aligners
Perhaps you never got braces as a child, or your teeth have shifted out of position as an adult? Either way, there is an option available to you for minor alignment issues that doesn’t involve having to use metal braces. Invisalign is a popular option that can shift your teeth into their ideal position, without having to compromise your appearance in the meantime. It’s as simple as wearing clear, invisible covers or guards in the mouth that shift the teeth towards their intended position over time.
Booking your appointment
Dental crowns are a popular cosmetic option if you have damaged or incomplete teeth, whereas dental implants or dental bridges can be used to replace your missing teeth at your dentist.
