Grab a piece of paper and something to write with. Then, make a list of five people who you think have great smiles. These can be people you know, celebrities, anyone you think has a beautiful smile.
You can probably picture their smiles in your mind. Now, write down the traits that make those smiles great.
Are their teeth white? Straight? Are their teeth “whole” with no broken or chipped teeth?
Now think about your teeth. What could you do to make your smile as nice as the people on your list?
Below, you will find three common requests we receive from patients interested in cosmetic dentistry at our Boynton Beach office.
▸ 1. Make Your Teeth Look Whiter
We completely understand why you might enjoy that morning cup of coffee, some tea or a soft drink in the afternoon, and a glass of wine with dinner.
We also know that all of those things can contribute to stains on your teeth. So can the foods you eat at breakfast, lunch, dinners, and snacks between meals.
In truth, if something can stain a shirt, it can stain your teeth, too.
It’s normal for people’s teeth to become yellower or darker as they get older. Every sip and every bite add a little bit to those stains.
Dr. Rosenblatt’s office can help you reclaim your smile with professional teeth whitening or dental veneers. Both can be effective in different ways.
We offer in-office professional teeth whitening with KöR and Opalescence take-home whitening products for people who prefer a DIY approach. Both can be effective at removing the deep stains from your teeth.
With our in-office whitening, you can see a significant improvement in a single visit. The take-home products take a little more time to work, but the final results are comparably good.
Dental veneers don’t remove the stains. Instead, veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth to conceal your discolored teeth.
This works with stained teeth, but it is also effective on teeth that have become discolored for other reasons. Injuries, illnesses, and medications all can affect the color of your smile.
By calling 561-877-3802 for an appointment, we can help you decide which is the best option for you.
▸ 2. Make Your Teeth Look Straight
Few people are lucky enough to have perfectly straight teeth. If you aren’t one of the lucky ones, Dr. Rosenblatt can help.
Invisalign® is an orthodontic option that works well for patients with mild and moderate alignment issues and bite problems (e.g. overbites and underbites). Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign wearers receive a series of clear aligners.
Each aligner pushes your teeth a little closer to their final, straight positions.
Invisalign can close gaps between teeth, put some space between crowded teeth, and straighten crooked teeth, among other issues.
Depending on the specifics of your situation, dental veneers could be a solution for this problem, too.
Just as veneers can be shaded to be as white as you would like them to be, they can also be designed to give you the appearance of straight teeth.
Between Invisalign and veneers, we can help most patients who are interested in having a perfectly straight smile.
▸ 3. Make Your Teeth Look Whole
Chipped and broken teeth happen far more often than anyone would like. You also may be surprised how something that can seem so small can have such a big effect on your smile.
Biting into an olive pit, an unpopped kernel of popcorn, or even ice can cause chips and breaks. It may go without saying that sports injuries can lead to broken teeth as well. (This is also why we offer athletic mouthguards as part of our general dentistry.)
If you want to make your smile whole again, you have three great options.
First, you can get dental veneers. Whether you need to repair one tooth or several, veneers can restore them to the full size.
Second, you can try tooth bonding. The bonding material is a resin that can be shaded to match the color of your teeth. This allows it to blend in with the rest of your smile.
Third, you can get a dental crown. This may be a better option for larger breaks or for teeth that appear small in comparison to the rest of your smile.
