A New Year, a New Smile: 4 Ways to Brighten Your Smile for the New Year

Dentist Blog

The season to be jolly is just about over. It is now time to begin preparing for the coming year. This is that time of year when people begin to contemplate new beginnings. For some, losing weight is the priority, for others, its finally time to give themselves the smile they deserve.

If you have decided to do something about your teeth this coming year, you'll be pleased to know that you have many options. Cosmetic dentistry can help you to achieve the results you desire in a fairly short timeframe. Here are just four the options available to you this coming new year.

Composite Bonding for a Quick Start

One of the most inexpensive, as well as fast, options available to you is composite bonding. If your teeth are chipped, cracked or badly stained, composite bonding can fix that. To bond a single tooth takes around 45 minutes. Moreover, though bonding is the cheapest option available, it may last 5 years until you need to have it replaced.

If you are looking to kick off the new year with a fast confidence booster, bonding is the way to go. In one dental visit, you can have several of your front teeth bonded to give you a bright, white smile.

Whitening for a Confidence Boost

This is another fast treatment that can ensure you keep your New Year's resolution to improve your smile. If stains are your problem, Zoom whitening can brighten your smile in just 45 minutes. This will help you to kick off the new year with confidence.

Porcelain Veneers for that Hollywood Smile

Veneers are much the same as composite bonding, only much stronger and longer lasting. These thin porcelain shells are designed to fit over the front of your teeth. This means they can cover up stains, gaps and chips that would have otherwise kept you from smiling with confidence. The downside is that they are more expensive and take longer to create.

Still, by investing in just 4 porcelain veneers for your upper teeth, your smile can be vastly improved. If you start early, you can have a new smile by the third week of January.

Porcelain Crowns to Restore Broken Teeth

Just because a tooth is badly broken, that doesn't mean extraction is the only option. A good cosmetic dentist can take a tooth that is broken to the gum line, and leave it looking as good as new. Like porcelain veneers, a porcelain crown can last 10 or more years. However, you should prepare early, as you may have to week several weeks for your crown to be ready.

Why not start the new year with a confidence boost? An improvement to your smile may be just what you need to get your new year up and running.
