Cosmetic Dentistry: The Secret to a Beach-Ready Smile

There’s a good chance you’re planning a trip to the beach, especially since May is nearly over. The weather now is ideal for some well-deserved fun in the sun. Still, you should first master the key secret to a beach-ready smile: cosmetic dentistry! Its many treatments and tips will give you a dazzling grin that’s well-suited to summer. For more details, here’s how cosmetic dental work can prep your smile for the beach.

Get a Brighter Smile with Teeth Whitening

If you want to impress with a bright summer smile, seriously consider pro teeth whitening. It would remove most (if not all) mild-to-severe stains from your mouth’s enamel layer.

Today’s teeth whitening often comes in two distinct forms: in-office care and take-home kits. With the in-office option, a dentist applies special bleaching gel to your grin during a single dental visit. A take-home kit would have you wear gel-infused trays over a few weeks or so. However, both methods deliver roughly similar results. Either one should give you a smile six to eight shades brighter!

Touch Up Your Teeth with Dental Bonding

Do your teeth only need a minor touch-up for your time at the beach? In that case, look into a dental bonding procedure.

Dental bonding hides your smile’s minor flaws by applying tooth-colored resin to your teeth. By doing so, it covers up small stains, chips, cracks, and spaces from view. The dentist then sculpts and hardens its resin material to blend seamlessly with your grin. That way, care results in a beautified smile that looks pretty and natural.

Make Your Grin Gorgeous with Porcelain Veneers

Maybe you have a lot of dental flaws and plan to travel in just a few weeks. If so, porcelain veneers could do you a lot of good.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that dentists place on the fronts of teeth. Once set, they can hide a wide range of smile flaws – chips, cracks, gaps, stains, etc. – from public view. That said, the treatment takes two dental visits and removes a little enamel from your grin. Consult your dentist to ensure you’re prepared for that commitment.

Keep Your Mouth Pretty with Cosmetic Dental Tips

Cosmetic dentistry effects don’t last forever, so it’s vital to protect them to keep your mouth pretty for a longer time. Here are some ways to make your beachside grin stay beautiful:

  • Drink Lots of Water – By drinking water, you’ll rinse leftover bacteria out of your mouth and stop plaque buildup.
  • Eat Mouth-Healthy Meals – Junk food can decay your teeth with sugar, as well as distort the effects of cosmetic dental work. Focus on healthier stuff that strengthens your smile.
  • Maintain Your Oral Care Routine – While it’s easy to skip brushing and flossing on vacation, make sure you don’t. Your grin will start to look yellow and grimy otherwise.

Now that you know the secret to a beach-ready smile, go ahead and see your cosmetic dentist for help!
