The holidays and a new year are right around the corner, and everyone wants to look their best when getting together with long-lost relatives and posing for family photos. A simple way to look great and boost your confidence this season is by opting for a cosmetic dentistry procedure courtesy of your family dentist in Encinitas.
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option for people who have chipped, discolored, or cracked teeth. Veneers are thin coverings made of porcelain that fit over the front of your teeth and blend in naturally, giving you an amazing smile. In some cases veneers can be used to hide gaps between the teeth and make your teeth appear straighter without the need for braces or Invisalign.
Crowns or bridges can be used for people who need to strengthen weak teeth. They are sometimes used as the finishing touches of a root canal or a dental implant procedure, and they look completely natural. Your Carlsbad dentist can use a bridge to cover the gap of a missing tooth, giving you back the smile you once had.
Another cosmetic dentistry option is replacing old fillings with white composite fillings. These fillings match your teeth and do not draw attention to the work you have had done, the way old silver fillings do. Another benefit of switching to composite fillings is they are less likely to cause tooth sensitivity and they do not risk damaging or cracking the tooth.
Next time you visit a La Costa dental office, speak with your dentist about the ADA-approved cosmetic dentistry options available to you. You can start developing a plan that will leave you with a sparkling smile just in time for the holidays.
