Just like plastic surgeries and any other body cosmetic enhancing methods, cosmetic dentistry is becoming more and more popular as each day goes by. Many people are looking to improve or restore the beauty of their smiles by performing such dentistry treatments, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Before we begin, there are some statistics that we want you to take a look at. More than 99 percent of adults confirm that smile is one of the most important assets. 74 percent of them believe that a person with an unattractive smile is less likely to win a job interview, go on a date or leave a good impression. Although we do not entirely believe that any visual assets should be used to judge a person, we still agree that a smile is really important. With all of this being said, let’s take a look at some of the most performed dentistry treatments.
Teeth whitening treatment
Whitening or bleaching the teeth is probably the most famous and widely performed dentistry treatment. It’s done really easily, it’s totally risk-free and usually doesn’t cost a lot at all. The prices may vary depending on how professional the company performing the treatment is. Usually, more experienced and professional companies will charge more, but it still shouldn’t be much since it’s a relatively cheap process. Lasting Smiles of Bethlehem is one of the most professional companies out there, so if you’re looking for professional service, make sure to check them out. Teeth whitening results will last more or less depending on what option you chose for your package. Also, the intensity will also vary depending on how many “shades” you chose to whiten for.
If you’re a person that has stubborn teeth staining or simply don’t want to whiten your teeth, porcelain veneers are the right solution for you. If you don’t know what this is, veneers are basically a shell that is meant to fit right over your tooth in order to make it appear whiter, cleaner and eliminate any uneven alignment. However, this process is more expensive than whitening and also not permanent. Porcelain veneers usually last between ten to fifteen years before needing a replacement.
Braces. The nightmare of every high school teenager. And even some adults. Jokes aside, braces are very useful when it comes to aligning your teeth in order to prevent future problems, which can sometimes be more serious. If you’re a person that hates the look of braces on your teeth, getting invisible ones might be a fix to your problem. Also, there are other color variants for braces so you can pick the one you like the most. Or, you can even get yourself porcelain ones. Invisible braces are a bit more expensive than normal ones so have that in consideration before making your decision.
One of the most common concerns is the “Gummy Smile”. This is basically an excessive amount of gum tissue that gets exposed during a smile. Although it is nothing to worry about, some people just want it fixed since they worry too much about aesthetics. This can be done by different methods, some of which include gingival sculpting, laser surgery and surgical lip repositioning.
