Many Miami Beach residents feel pressure to look good, and when you live in a city that’s filled with “fun in the sun” activities, you not only want to look good but feel good, also. With so many warm and hot months on an oceanfront paradise, feeling well and looking good are important. People work out, take supplements, get massages, spend afternoons at the spa, hire stylists, and lay out in the sun all to look and feel better.
What’s important to remember, however, is that you’ve got to take care of your inner self as much as you take care of your outer self. One thing you can do to treat yourself to a healthy life is to find a Miami Beach cosmetic dentist that you love. While we all know how it important it is to have a great general dentist in your contact list, you may be surprised to learn that it’s just as important to know an excellent Florida cosmetic dentist.
It’s absolutely amazing how cosmetic dentistry can transform a dull smile into a stunning one in just a few visits to your cosmetic dentist’s office. The wonderful thing about cosmetic dentistry is that it focuses on the aesthetics of your smile while ensuring the health and function of your teeth, gums, and mouth. When making your gums and teeth more beautiful, your cosmetic dentist in Miami will also be strengthening those structures and ensuring they last a very long time.
Three of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures are:
- Porcelain veneers
- Professional in-office teeth whitening
- Invisalign® clear aligners
While there are many other procedures cosmetic dentists perform to make your smile more beautiful, the above list indicates some of the most sought-out cosmetic dentistry procedures in Miami Beach.
#1 Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers – also referred to as “dental veneers” – are wafer-thin sheaths placed on top of natural teeth that have some type of minor flaw. Your Miami Beach cosmetic dentist will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss with you whether you need one or more porcelain veneers.
Whether you need one or several veneers, the procedure is very much the same. Your cosmetic dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the tooth to receive the porcelain veneer. That is done at your first porcelain veneer appointment. At that visit, temporary veneers will be placed on top of your tooth while your permanent ones are custom-made in a laboratory. During your next visit, the permanent porcelain veneer will be bonded to your tooth, using the most advanced dental technology available today. Finally, your dentist will add the finishing touches to your stunning new white tooth. No one will ever know you have had a porcelain veneer placed unless you tell them.
#2 Teeth Whitening
If your teeth are dull or discolored due to stains from food, drinks, or medications, professional in-office teeth whitening may be the best solution to transform your lackluster smile into a dazzling one that lights up a room. While most dentists offer a take-home whitening system, the in-office teeth whitening results are simply astonishing. Store-bought teeth whitening systems simply cannot provide the amazing results that professional in-office teeth whitening products can.
#3 Invisalign® Clear Aligners
If your teeth are crooked, and your dentist feels you could benefit from braces, you will want to learn more about Invisalign® clear aligners. This amazing product gradually shifts your teeth over time by having you move from one set of aligners to the next in your treatment plan. The most appealing feature of Invisalign® is that you don’t have to wear unsightly metal braces. These clear aligners are very hard to see, and you only take them out when eating. They are easy to clean, easy to transport, and much more comfortable than metal braces.
Teens and adults alike can benefit from Invisalign®, and while the commitment needed may be several months or even years, the end result is worth the wait. Your teeth will be beautifully straight. Invisalign® used in conjunction with some other cosmetic dentistry procedures in Miami Beach will get you that Hollywood-worthy smile you’ve always wanted.
