Three Ways to Give Yourself a Great Smile
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, as the singers like to say.
That means you’ll be spending time picking out gifts for the most important people in your life. We hope you remember to include yourself!
A great smile is a gift that you can share with others for the rest of your life. We’ve seen how cosmetic dentistry has improved patients’ confidence and self-esteem at our Black Diamond, WA dental office.
If you want to make a change, we have multiple ways to make that happen. Call Black Diamond Dentistry at 360-284-7647. The first step is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Yancy Sipes.
In the meantime, here are three ways you could give your teeth and upgrade.
1. Straighten Your Smile
Few people are lucky enough to have naturally straight teeth.
Some people undergo orthodontic treatment as teens, but for one reason or another, their teeth may relapse or move back toward their original positions. Other people never received orthodontic care, but as adults, they are in a position to do something about it for themselves.
As part of our cosmetic care, we offer ClearCorrect aligners. These are an excellent alternative to braces for many people. The aligners are custom-made for each patient to gently move your teeth where you want them to be for an aesthetically pleasing smile.
Straightening your teeth also makes it easier to keep them clean. That also means it can make your daily oral hygiene routine and your regular dental checkups more effective.
2. Whiten Your Teeth
Do you like coffee, tea, or soft drinks? Do you enjoy a glass of wine, a pint of beer, or a bit of bourbon from time to time? Do you eat Mexican, Italian, or Chinse food with their variety of colorful sauces? Do you like desserts?
Any and all of those things — and many more — add to the stains on your smile. Over time, your teeth can turn from pearly white to dingy yellow. It’s normal and a natural part of getting older.
And this may go without saying, but tobacco will make those stains appear sooner as well.
Thankfully, we have to great ways to bring back the bright, beautiful color of your smile. Professional teeth whitening does a great job of removing extrinsic stains. Our products are more powerful than the stuff you can find in stores, which means better results in as little as one visit to our office.
Dental veneers are another great way to create a whiter smile. Veneers don’t remove the stains, rather, they are bonded to the front of your teeth to conceal the discoloration. With veneers in place, your smile can be as white as you want it to be!
3. Repair Your Teeth
In the course of a lifetime, we put our teeth through a lot. You may have chipped or broken teeth. You might have a cracked tooth. Or you could have tooth decay, like more than 90 percent of the population will.
Through restorative dentistry, we have a variety of ways to repair your teeth so they look and function as well as healthy, natural teeth.
It’s Up to You
Your smile is a gift to the people who care about you. When you are happy with your smile, you are more likely to share it with others.
