    5 Smile Enhancing Treatments for a Beautiful Smile

    Do you dream of a beautiful smile? Smile enhancers in Edmonton at Beverly Heights Dental will help you provide the smile of your dreams. With various smile enhancement treatments such as dental bonding, dental veneers, lumineers, Invisalign and teeth whitening, you can be assured of a perfect smile. In this article, we will discuss how these dental treatments will help you improve the aesthetics of your smile.

    1.   Teeth whitening

    If you have stained teeth, a professional teeth whitening procedure is your solution. Professional teeth whitening procedures reduce discoloration of your teeth and make them look white and bright. Professionals use high-quality bleaching agents on your teeth to remove stains and restore its standard shade of white. These bleaching agents help to open your teeth pores and remove the stains on it. Teeth are then remineralized and rehydrated to conclude the teeth whitening treatment. It is common to experience sensitivity after the teeth whitening procedure, but it’s important to note that this sensitivity is temporary. It takes about 12-16 hours for the teeth to insulate teeth nerves and normalize.

    2.   Dental veneers

    Dental veneers are customized tooth-like shells that are placed over the surface of your teeth to improve the aesthetics of your smile. These tooth-like shells are made up of porcelain or composite resin material to make dental veneers appear just like your natural teeth. Dental veneers that are made up of porcelain are better at resisting stains and are better at reflecting your natural teeth as compared to those made up of composite resin material. The procedure of dental veneers is time-consuming as it involves the removal of your tooth enamel and is comparatively expensive.

    3.   Dental bonding

    Dental bonding is another dental treatment for enhancing your smile and is used as an alternative to amalgam fillings. It involves bonding a tooth-like material and is made up of composite resin on your teeth that is hardened with the help of an ultraviolet or laser light. It is used to mask flaws such as chipped, cracked, broken, and stained teeth. Apart from addressing these dental issues, it helps in closing gaps between your teeth and protects your teeth from damage should the gums recede. Dental bonding is the least expensive dental treatment for smile enhancement and is less time-consuming as there is no need for tooth preparation, unlike dental veneers.

    4.   Lumineers

    Lumineers is a brand of dental veneers that are ultra-thin, teeth-like shells made up of porcelain. These have a thickness similar to that of a contact lens. Lumineers don’t require tooth enamel removal as they are simply bonded to the surface of the teeth to correct chipped, broken, or stained teeth. Unlike dental veneers, getting lumineers is a reversible process. If you are not satisfied with lumineers, you can ask your dentist to remove them.

    5.   Invisalign

    Invisalign is a modern alternative to wired braces. You can consider this option if you don’t want to opt for orthodontics. Invisalign are custom-made aligners made up of plastic that is placed over your teeth to straighten them. As compared to traditional braces, Invisalign is transparent, more comfortable, can be easily removed, and there are no food restrictions when you get them on.
