During the holiday season, we are often visiting family and friends that maybe we haven’t had a chance to see in quite some time. With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, it might have been a few years since you last spoke with some of your loved ones.
Understandably, this situation can cause you to be a bit self-conscious about your smile. Time may be creeping up on you, but there are plenty of ways that we can look to set you down the best oral health path. Today, your Baxter, MN dentist shows you some of the most common ways to improve both the look and the feel of your smile. All in time for the holidays!
A Twinkling Touch-Up
One of the quickest ways to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile is through a simple whitening procedure. Years of use and contact can leave noticeable stains on your enamel. While there are many over-the-counter options for improving coloration, it’s best to speak with your oral healthcare provider first. These can leave your enamel weakened, leading to sensitivity or even decay.
But a properly guided process can give you a refreshing new smile. Not only that, but you can walk into the holidays feeling confident and ready to take on the stress. Speak to us today about keeping your smile as bright as possible!
A Tidy Package
Many people suffer from small chips or wear to their enamel. After all, we use our mouths throughout the day, nearly constantly causing contact between our teeth, our gums, and our tongue. In addition, any number of small accidents can leave you wanting to restore smile.
Dental bonding and contouring is a fantastic way to rebuild and reshape your existing structure. Composite bonding is a minimally-invasive method that uses a resin to build replacement enamel. This may be a great way for you to quickly erase that nagging chip you have had for years! Contouring operates in the reverse way, where enamel can be removed from an area. This can be helpful for patients with misshapen teeth, or ones that may appear too long or large.
Call our office today to schedule a consultation. The holidays are getting closer, but there is still time to improve your smile!
