Summertime Smiles

Posted in Teeth Whitening

It’s time to start thinking of getting ready for summer vacations, cookouts, and the pool. Most people start to work on their tan, get highlights in their hair, and plan to lose some weight for that swimsuit; some of these last only for a season. Why not invest in something that leaves you looking great year round and leaves a longer impression? We’re talking about a gorgeous summertime smile that won’t ever go out of style.

Whitening your teeth takes years off of the way they look, removing deep-set stain that ages tooth enamel and makes it appear dark in color. Some people like to take their custom teeth whitening trays with them to the tanning bed because they feel that the tanning lights help speed up their whitening results. Professional whitening gels produce more dramatic result than weaker gels that are available over the counter.

If crowding, tooth size or shape is more concerning, then veneers are a go-to for producing exceptionally beautiful smiles. Porcelain veneers provide permanent, lasting esthetic improvements that make smiles look straighter and whiter.

The more confident you feel in your smile, the more confident you’ll be in everything else. Who doesn’t want to be able to put their widest smile on for all of those summer vacation photos that will be taken this year? Make a list of things you would like to permanently change about your teeth. Schedule a consultation with your dentist to discuss what options are available. In anywhere from one appointment to 2 or 3 visits, you can have that beautiful white smile before summer even arrives.
