The days are getting longer and warmer. Summer is almost here. That’s why so many people are trying to get their bodies in shape. They’ll be showing off more in the summer, and with all the travel and get-togethers, there will be plenty of photos and videos. It makes sense to worry about how you look.
But what can you do for your smile? Call our Fairfax, VA dental office today at 703-552-2530 and make an appointment for cosmetic dentistry before summer gets too far along. Dr. Ki is expertly trained in using cosmetic dentistry to get your smile ready for summer.
Why You Need A Great Smile For Summer
There are a lot of memories and gatherings in the summer. That means you need to be concerned with how you look. For example, would you go to a family reunion wearing clothes that are stained and unattractive on you? Instead, you’ll find something to wear that flatters you and looks great.
That’s why getting cosmetic dentistry now makes sense. Here are some specific reasons why:
- Vacations & travel: It’s a perfect time to travel and go on exciting adventures. You’ll likely be taking all kinds of photos and videos during your travels. How do you want your smile to look in them?
- Class reunions: Summer is often the time for 10-year and 20-year class reunions. You might not have seen these people in decades. What kind of impression will you make with your current smile?
- Family gatherings: Whether it’s an official reunion or just a 4th of July party, many people meet their extended family here. Sometimes, this is the only way you can see cousins or relatives. What kind of smile do you want them to see?
Cosmetic Dentistry For Your Smile
What can be done so your smile is ready for all that summer brings? Here are some of the cosmetic dentistry treatments available at our Fairfax, VA dental office.
These ultra-thin shells are made to look and feel like healthy enamel. Each veneer is shaped to cover your teeth. Once they’re made, Dr. Ki will expertly place them over your natural teeth. This covers all imperfections, including chips, craters, and stains. Dr. Ki has the experience to even make your dental veneers a little too big in spots to cover small gaps between your teeth. Dental veneers offer a dramatic improvement for a summer smile.
It’s hard to feel good about your smile when years of tea, coffee, and other dark foods turn your pearly whites into something dull and dingy. There are kits you can buy in stores, but these are weak in order to be sold over the counter. That’s why you need professional-strength teeth whitening from Dr. Ki who is trained to use it safely and effectively. Imagine showing up to your reunion with a dazzling smile.
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, you need to pay attention to your gums as well. They should have a small role in your smile. But when you have a gummy smile, your gums are too big. That makes your teeth look oddly small. Thankfully, Dr. Ki is trained in gum reshaping to gently remove excess gum tissue. This turns a gummy smile into one that’s balanced for all those vacation photos.
Damaged teeth look painful even when they’re not. Chips, cracks, and craters in your enamel make an otherwise great-looking smile seem older and unsightly. That’s where tooth bonding can help. Dr. Ki will artfully place a layer of a tooth-colored resin over your teeth. This fills in damage, giving your teeth a bright, smooth, and healthy look.
TOOTH-COLORED DENTAL FILLINGS
Dental fillings work great when you have a cavity, but older metal ones really stick out in your smile. Thankfully, you can replace those metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. These do the same job, but since they’re color-matched to the tooth they repair, they’ll blend in with your smile.
Call us TODAY at 703-552-2530 and make an appointment with Dr. Laura Ki. You can also request an appointment online to get cosmetic dentistry now before summer officially begins. You deserve a beautiful, healthy-looking smile.
