We hope you had a happy holiday season, and everyone at our dentist office in Red Bank, NJ, wish you a healthy and successful 2017. We hope you will create many memories that give you reasons to smile for years to come.
One of those memories may even become making your smile look better. If you would like to learn what cosmetic dentistry can do for you, then you should make plans to visit with Denise DiBona, DDS.
We have seen how teeth whitening, dental veneers, or Invisalign® can do more than just improve a patient’s smile. Cosmetic services can give people a renewed sense of confidence. When you feel good about your smile, you are more likely to smile.
And seeing you smile makes us feel good, too.
Below, we have put together a list of seven different ways you could transform your teeth in 2017.
★ Dental Veneers
Dental veneers are like fake fingernails in that they cover something that you don’t want other people to see. Veneers are also quite different from fake fingernails since veneers can last for decades with proper care.
Your veneers will be custom-made to fit your teeth. They can be used to improve the color of your teeth. They can repair chipped and worn down teeth. They can make a crooked smile look straight, and they can close gaps between your teeth.
While we do offer traditional orthodontic treatments, many adults prefer Invisalign. One reason is that Invisalign is discreet. The clear aligners fit over your teeth in a way that they blend in with your smile.
You can feel comfortable wearing your plastic aligners in both professional and social situations. You also may like the fact that you can remove then during meals, so you won’t have to give up any of your favorite foods during your orthodontic treatment.
Make an appointment with Dr. DiBona if you would like to find out if Invisalign could work for you.
★ Gum Reshaping
If a smile was a TV show, then teeth would be the stars. If your gums are overshadowing your teeth, however, you can change your gummy smile.
Gum reshaping is a way to remove excess gum tissue to make your teeth more visible. At our Red Bank dentist office, we use an Electrosurge unit for this procedure. This is gentler but still effective way to provide this service.
★ Snap-On Smile
Maybe you are interested in cosmetic dentistry, but you are sure if you want to make a full investment just yet. Maybe you would like to change your smile, but you have sensitive teeth.
In both those cases, Snap-On Smile may be the way to go. Like veneers, Snap-On Smile fits over your teeth. As the name suggests, this is something you can remove and replace as you see fit.
You can eat, speak, and smile with your set of Snap-On Smile. You could view this as your way to test drive your new smile, or you may decide this is the perfect solution for you.
★ Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening remains one of the most popular and simplest ways to improve the appearance of your smile.
Years of drinking coffee, soft drinks, and wine and eating pasta, pizza, and desserts can leave your teeth yellow and stained. Professional teeth whitening can go deep to lift those stains to reveal your pearly whites once again.
And while you are at it, don’t forget to ask about our whitening for life program.
★ Tooth Bonding
One or two chipped teeth could be all it takes to leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. Fortunately, we have a fix for that at our dentist office in Red Bank, NJ.
bonding is done by adding a composite resin to your chipped tooth. The resin will harden to restore the shape of your teeth and complete your smile.
★ Tooth Contouring
Sometimes teeth don’t fit in as well as we would like. You may have a tooth that is misshapen in some way. You may have a tooth that looks oversized when compared to the rest of your smile.
These are times when tooth contouring comes in handy. Tooth contouring is a process by which Dr. DiBona can remove a small portion of your enamel. By doing this she can reshape your tooth so it matches the rest of your mouth.
