Nearly half of adults say a person’s smile is what they remember most about someone when meeting for the first time. It makes a bigger first impression than what you say or how you dress!
The same holds true in the digital age, when prospective employers and potential business connections are looking for you on social media.
And unfortunately, dental imperfections can convey the wrong message. A quarter of adults said they perceived people with flawed teeth to be less confident than those with perfect teeth, according to a recent study commissioned by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
But there is some good news: it’s easier and more affordable than ever to get a beautiful smile! Read on for some of the ways Bell Dental Group can fix dental imperfections to help you make a strong first impression every time. Consider it an investment in your future success!
1. Teeth Whitening: For A Smile As Brilliant As You Are
All those college all-nighters you spent studying in the library paid off in terms of your grades and your degree — but what if all the coffee and other caffeinated beverages you consumed have stained your teeth?
Teeth whitening is one of the “most economical ways to enhance your appearance,” according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
And if you’re looking for a dramatic transformation fast, in-office bleaching treatment will give you a brilliant smile fast.
At Bell Dental Group, we offer Zoom2 and GLO Science Professional in-office whitening treatments. In both cases, you’ll leave the office with a noticeably whiter smile! Sometimes,
We also offer at-home teeth bleaching treatments from Opalescence Go. These kits offer the convenience of over-the-counter strips and gels, but the prescription-only formulation is more powerful than any drugstore treatment. Plus, whitening your teeth under a dentist’s supervision ensures that the treatment will effectively remove stains.
2. Invisalign®: Let’s Get One Thing Straight
Do you often wish you had straighter teeth, but you’re not ready to commit to a mouthful of metal? Or do you find that your teeth have shifted slightly since you had braces as a teenager?
Invisalign® offers an incredibly discreet solution for mild to moderate teeth and bite misalignment issues. Treatment consists of a series of virtually invisible plastic aligners that you wear for 20 to 22 hours a day. Every so often, you’ll swap out your aligner for the next in the series, allowing for gradual and gentle movement of your teeth.
There are no irritating wires or brackets, and since you take your Invisalign aligner out when you eat, there are no dietary restrictions like there are with traditional braces! Plus, the average course of treatment is only 12 months.
At Bell Dental Group, you can be confident in the orthodontic care you’ll receive because we are recognized as an Invisalign Premier Provider!
3. Dental Veneers: The Ultimate Smile Makeover
How do Hollywood’s hottest celebrities get such perfect smiles? The answer is often dental veneers.
In fact, supermodel Chrissy Teigen recently said dental veneers were the “weirdest thing (she’s) ever done in the name of beauty.” The procedure helped her conceal teeth that were worn from years of teeth grinding. She now has a flawless smile!
But dental veneers actually aren’t that weird at all. More than half of dentists surveyed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry for a 2015 report said that dental veneers were among their most popular procedures.
Dental veneers are thin but durable shells that are bonded to your teeth to conceal dental imperfections. Those can include:
- Small gaps between your teeth
- Teeth that appear slightly crooked
- Worn-down or misshapen teeth
At Bell Dental Group, we offer different kinds of veneers to fit your needs! That includes DURAthin dental veneers, which require little to no preparation of your healthy teeth.
