Cosmetic dentistry: A new year equals a new smile
A New Year marks a beginning, and this is why many of us make New Year’s resolutions. It’s a great time to make positive changes in our lives and to get a good start. If there’s something you want to change or to accomplish, a brand new smile year seems like the perfect place to start. Our cosmetic dentistry treatments can help you get the smile of your dreams in 2021!
In this blog, we’ll take a look at how cosmetic dentistry treatments can improve your smile.
What kind of improvements can I expect with cosmetic dentistry?
With the most suitable cosmetic dental procedure(s), it is possible for you to make several changes to your appearance. For example, a small change such as dental bonding can lead to teeth that appear brighter, and more uniform. On the other hand, big changes such as getting dental implants or veneers can even improve the shape of your face.
When will I see the results?
For many years, cosmetic restorations have been a long process that generally requires follow-up dental visits. However, thanks to the revolutionary CEREC system, JJS Dentistry is able to provide you with cosmetic restorations that can be performed and completed in just a few short hours! As a result, you can see a difference in your smile in no time.
Types of cosmetic dentistry treatments
Dental veneers are layers of porcelain that cover the top of the tooth. JJS Dentistry focuses on giving you a natural look. The end result is a desirable colour, alignment or shape without changing the tooth structure for a bright, symmetrical smile. Our signature porcelain veneers can last for more than 10 years, as long as you take good care of them.
Dental implants are metal frames posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone of a patient. Once in place, teeth can be mounted onto these posts- offering a comfortable, secure, and permanent solution for patients with specific oral health needs. In addition, implants can replace missing teeth, enhance your appearance, and help you chew better. Many of our patients say that implants help them talk, eat and smile with confidence.
Bonding is the application of a tooth-coloured composite resin to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured or discoloured tooth. If you have a cracked, chipped, or discoloured tooth, dental bonding can give you the confidence to flash those pearly whites. Dental bonding is also a convenient, cost-effective and simple, way to improve the look of your teeth and protect them from future damage.
Teeth Whitening is quite popular right now, with many products available – ranging from unique kinds of toothpaste to whitening strips. For mild discolouration, there are many over the counter whitening products available. However, for more stubborn staining or discolouration, professional teeth whitening treatment may be the best option. For people who would like a whiter and brighter smile, Dr Serfontein offers Zoom® Teeth Whitening -a premier teeth whitening procedure.
Aftercare for cosmetic dentistry treatments
If you want to maintain your cosmetic improvements, start by paying special attention to your daily oral care needs. For instance, brushing and flossing effectively can protect you against oral bacteria and help prevent stains from forming.
To further ensure that your smile is protected, keep up with regular dental checkups. During your visits, we can look over past cosmetic dental work to make sure your smile still shows off your desired improvements.
