I have a 30-year class reunion coming up. What is a great way for me to improve my smile quickly? My teeth, like the rest of me, are beginning to show my age. While I can’t get cosmetic surgery, I am thinking there is something I can do with my smile. What are your recommendations?
You have a couple of great options. I don’t know specifically what you want to improve about your teeth, but I’ll give some general ideas.
If they are otherwise in good condition but have just developed stains, the most affordable solution which can make a dramatic difference is to get them whitened. That alone will make you look years younger. You can do it slowly (and by that I mean over a period of a few weeks) with traditional teeth whitening. If you want it done sooner than that, you can have it done in one appointment with a dentist who offers Zoom Whitening.
The great thing about whitening your teeth is you don’t need to go to a cosmetic dentist. Any family dentist can do that.
If your teeth need some orthodontic work, Invisalign is a wonderful treatment for adults. It works in half the time as traditional braces. Plus, it’s invisible even at a conversational distance. Plus, they have the additional benefit of the Invisalign aligners being able to double as teeth whitening trays which allows you to do both procedures simultaneously.
When You Want the Top of the Line Smile Makeover
There is a procedure which can change just about anything you want with your smile. Porcelain veneers are what give you a “celebrity smile”. They can change the shape, size, and color of your teeth all at once. You will need an excellent cosmetic dentist for this. It can’t be done by your average family dentist.
Check out their smile galleries, to see what type of results they have gotten in other cases they’ve done. This has a higher price tag, but when done well, the results are absolutely stunning.
