Top 3 Cosmetic Dental Treatments for Your College Graduation

Cosmetic Dental Treatments | A big event like college graduation puts a lot of eyes on you. Your appearance, including the way that your teeth and smile look, can have a big effect on how other people perceive you. And many of the photos taken of you during this time will be on someone’s mantle for years to come. So even if your teeth are otherwise healthy, you will want to ensure that any cosmetic problems are corrected before this important event.

Today’s modern dental treatments offer a cosmetic treatment for virtually any type of defect with your teeth, including:

  • Discoloration
  • Minor chips
  • Gaps
  1. Teeth Whitening 

For young people, the most common cause of teeth discoloration is drinking dark-colored beverages like tea and coffee. Smoking tobacco products can also stain the teeth over time. If you’re dealing with stained teeth, you should consider undergoing a professional teeth whitening treatment before your college graduation. 

Professional teeth whitening can be performed by your dental team right in the chair at the office. First, you would have a whitening gel applied to your teeth, which normally contains some type of hydrogen peroxide in a professional-strength concentration.

A special light may be used in conjunction with the whitening gel to improve its effects. After the gel has been in contact with your teeth for a certain amount of time, it will be rinsed away. Repeat applications at the same appointment may be necessary to achieve your desired shade.

  1. Porcelain Veneers

If you have multiple issues with one or more of your teeth, you might want to consider getting porcelain veneers. Porcelain dental veneers are a thin shell of porcelain that your dentist can permanently bond to one or more teeth to improve their appearance, such as if a tooth has minor chips or discoloration.

Since there is no going back at that point, make sure that this is a decision that you’re comfortable with. Having said that, the vast majority of people who have received porcelain veneers are very happy with their results.

  1. Invisalign

It’s hard to be completely confident about your smile when you have crooked or misaligned teeth. Although traditional braces are still available, you may want to go with a less obtrusive treatment option, particularly one that is completely removable like Invisalign. Many patients love this Cosmetic Dental Treatments.

Commonly known as “clear braces,” Invisalign is a system relying upon wearing aligners made from a clear plastic material, making the treatment virtually invisible.

If you need to eat or clean your teeth, you can remove your aligners at any time. Although it’s unlikely that anyone will know that you’re wearing your Invisalign aligners while taking a photo, you can still remove them if you like.
