Now that it is summer, many patients are ready to make some changes to their smiles. As your trusted cosmetic dentist in Birmingham, AL, we are happy to provide a variety of cosmetic services to help patients achieve the best versions of their smiles. Here are three cosmetic dentistry solutions that are perfect to consider this summer:
Invisible braces, also known as Invisalign, is a great cosmetic dentistry solution for helping patients straighten any misaligned teeth. Usually used to help treat mild to moderate orthodontic concerns, Invisalign is a discreet alternative to traditional braces. Traditional braces usually require the secure fastening of metal brackets and wires to your teeth surfaces as you undergo treatment. However, with Invisalign, patients get to avoid all the inconveniences that come with traditional braces. Made of clear plastic, no one will be able to tell when you are wearing your Invisalign aligner. Also, Invisalign aligners are removable, meaning you don’t have to worry about any dietary restrictions or adding extra steps to your oral hygiene routine.
Stained or yellow teeth can really take away from the cosmetic appearance of your smile. Teeth whitening, one of the most requested cosmetic dental procedures, can provide a quick yet economical smile makeover. Dr. Spink offers two types of teeth whitening treatments to serve the needs of his patients–in-office and at-home kits. In-office teeth whitening is a fast and effective procedure that will allow you to see results within one appointment. At-home whitening systems use custom-fit trays to properly distribute teeth whitening gel and bleach teeth evenly. Because of our two choices, you get the opportunity to whiten your smile from the comfort of your own home while still getting the professional results you want.
If you are trying to achieve a complete smile makeover, look no further than porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are made of ultra-thin, high-quality ceramic material for superior durability and a natural appearance. They are placed directly on the tooth surface to conceal a variety of blemishes like bleach-resistant stains, chips, or gaps. You can get one veneer or a full mouth of veneers depending on your cosmetic and budgetary goals. One of the few local dentists who are members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), Dr. Spink has been providing smile makeovers for patients in the Birmingham area for over 30 years. If you are considering getting a cosmetic dentistry treatment for your smile before the summer is up, consider scheduling a consultation. Dr. Spink is happy to evaluate your smile and let you know what treatment options will best help you meet your goals.
