If you’re ready to feel confident about your smile again, keep reading to learn what your Los Gatos dentist has to share about all the ways you can transform you smile in 2021.
New Year, New You, New Smile
Every year, cosmetic dentistry become more popular, and by 2026, the market is expected to reach over $30 billion! That’s a lot of transformed smiles, and yours could be among them. Here are a few of the cosmetic dental options you might consider when looking to enhance your smile:
Depending on your age, you may have a number of fillings that were done using a material called “dental amalgam,” that looks silver or possibly even black on your teeth. Over the years, dentists have developed a new resin material that is enamel colored and matches the color of your natural teeth. The best part is, they can even replace older silver fillings with this material.
If you have cracks, breaks, or severe staining that can’t be corrected by whitening, porcelain veneers are a great option for you. Your dentist will craft tooth-colored shell out of high-quality porcelain material that will then be adhered to the front of the affected teeth, masking any noticeable flaws.
Like most other things in life, there are higher and lower quality options when it comes to dental restorations, and the material that your dentist uses makes all the difference when restoring your smile. Among the different options, ceramic is the best way to go, and not only will it match your natural enamel perfectly, but it is the strongest material available.
Soft-Tissue Laser Services
Part of what makes your smile attractive is the gum to teeth ratio. Some people struggle with too little gum coverage, while others seem to have an excess. If you find yourself in the latter group, your dentist can utilize laser treatment to alter the tissue, exposing more of your teeth.
Regardless of your dental cosmetic needs, there has never been a better time to give yourself the gift of an enhanced smile. Talk to you dentist about what options are best for you.
