From weddings to school to family gatherings, the COVID-19 pandemic has made us put off many things that we were looking forward to. However, that doesn’t mean your smile has to follow suit! Your Bella Vista cosmetic dentist has reopened their practice with thorough infection control policies and COVID-19 safety protocols to ensure your safety during your visit. That means now is the perfect time to start a cosmetic dental treatment to correct that imperfection in your smile that’s always bothered you! Here are a few services that can help get your smile ready for when the facemasks come off.
Erase Cavities with Tooth-Colored Fillings
Whether you’ve been stress eating comfort food or mindlessly grazing on sugary snacks, there are plenty of reasons why you may have developed a cavity or two during the COVID-19 quarantine. Remember, your teeth can’t heal themselves, so it’s important to treat tooth decay before it gets worse. With tooth-colored fillings, you can erase those dark, sensitive spots from your pearly whites in no time!
Restore Your Teeth with All-Ceramic Restorations
Dentists across the country are reporting an increase in chipped and cracked teeth during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is likely caused by an increase in stress, which can promote chewing on hard objects and nightly teeth grinding. Thankfully, with all-ceramic restorations, you can restore the function and appearance of your smile! A custom-made dental crown, bridge, onlay, or inlay is the perfect way to prevent future damage or decay while simultaneously transforming the look of your pearly whites.
Brighten Your Pearly Whites with Teeth Whitening
Sometimes, a small but significant change can dramatically improve your smile! If you’ve been finding yourself wishing your teeth were whiter when you see them on videocalls with friends, family, or co-workers, teeth whitening is an excellent choice! What’s more, with a personalized at-home teeth whitening kit from your dentist, you can achieve professional results from the comfort of your own home.
Redesign Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Did you know that smiling can improve your health? Studies show that the very act of smiling can lower blood pressure, release endorphins, and even boost your immune system. Improving the appearance of your pearly whites won’t prevent COVID-19, but it can encourage you to get healthier by smiling more often. Whether you have one small but bothersome dental imperfection or several different types of flaws, porcelain veneers offer the perfect solution. This quick and minimally invasive treatment can perfectly conceal a wide variety of cosmetic problems and give you the uniform set of dazzling pearly whites you’ve always wanted!
It will likely still take quite some time before it’s safe enough to return to our “normal” social lives. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t start preparing for it now! A quick trip or two to your cosmetic dentist can help you feel ready to greet life after quarantine with a beautiful and healthy smile!
