Everybody wants a beautiful smile. Thanks to modern dental technology and your skilled cosmetic dentist, it is entirely possible to enhance your smile through different treatments. Whether you’re looking to straighten your teeth or brighten them up, there is something out there for you. Read on to learn more about the most popular dental trends of 2020 so far.

Teeth Whitening

This is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures. Not only is it affordable, but you see fast and lasting results when you have it done professionally. There are two different types of whitening treatments that your dentist provides:

In-Office Teeth Whitening

Through Zoom! teeth whitening, you can whiten your teeth by up to ten shades in just one hour-long visit to your dentist. This is the quickest way to see results when it comes to brightening up your smile. In-office whitening is ideal if you have a special event coming up or you just want to speed up the process in a safe environment.

At-Home Teeth Whitening

If you would prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, a take-home Zoom! kit could be the answer. This is provided to you by your dentist and contains products that are stronger than anything you can find at your local drug store. You will receive specific instructions and can use them during the day at your own convenience. You will see results in just a few weeks!

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Before the development of clear aligners, straightening your smile usually required uncomfortable wires and dietary restrictions. With Invisalign, none of that is an issue. They generally use less pressure to align your smile which makes them more comfortable. You are able to remove your trays, which eliminates the need for dietary restrictions. On top of all that, they are practically invisible. It’s unlikely that anyone will even notice them! Now patients can start a path towards a straighter smile without worrying about metal brackets and wires taking away from their appearance.

Dental Implants

This leading tooth replacement option is preferred by patients and dentists all over the country because of its many benefits. Implants are the only restoration option that replaces the natural root of the tooth. This is because the titanium implant is placed directly into the jawbone and fuses with it in a process called osseointegration. This prevents further jawbone deterioration, the movement of surrounding teeth, and the loss of your natural facial structure. The artificial tooth that is placed on the end of the implant is customized to be the exact shape, size, and color to blend in with the rest of your smile.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

As time goes on, dental restorations not only get stronger, they also look more natural. Dark-colored metal, silver, and gold are no longer the only materials that dentists can use for restoring damage in your smile. With new biocompatible materials, you are likely to experience increased comfort as well as a more natural appearance.

Why wait to increase your confidence? You don’t need to let your teeth hold you back. Ask your dentist about these treatments so you can have a smile that you are proud to show off!
