School isn’t starting the same way for everyone this year, but whether you’re operating in person or online, your smile still matters. Whether you’re the teacher or student or parent, your smile still matters. Ultimately, how you feel about your teeth is how you feel about yourself – are you embarrassed or self-conscious? That will come through in your entire demeanor. The right cosmetic dentistry dental treatment will get you in the right frame of mind for a successful school year.

1. Get a Teeth Cleaning

Feeling like your teeth are looking dingy and discolored, just not the best version of themselves that they can be? Well, the question is then: Are you due for a dental cleaning? Your Fort Lauderdale dental hygienist will remove all the built-up plaque and bacteria that have led to the stains and yellowing of your tooth enamel, brightening up your teeth and making your enamel gleam.

Running your tongue along your teeth will feel awesome when there isn’t any gunk in the way to get caught on, and your teeth will shine, no matter what kind of back-to-school environment you’re operating in.

2. Choose Professional Teeth Whitening

There is no faster and more effective way to brighten your smile for school than with professional teeth whitening. An in-office whitening treatment takes about one hour to complete and makes teeth multiple shades whiter for a bright, gleaming grin.

A take-home whitening option requires a little more patience and daily diligence to wearing the customized whitening trays, but it is just as effective because it utilizes the powerful bleaching agents that only a dentist can deliver. Your smile will be white and beautiful, even if your teeth aren’t perfect in alignment or other characteristics.

3. Invest in Invisalign

There is no better time than the start of a school year to begin an effective alternative to orthodontic treatment. Invisalign demands adherence to a rigorous schedule – you must wear the aligners 20 to 22 hours a day. But Invisalign is also kind and gentle, moving just a few teeth at a time and giving wearers the opportunity to take occasional breaks from their treatment because the aligners must be removed for meals and cleaning.

When you’re establishing a new routine for school, it’s a great time to fit Invisalign right into that order, whether you’re wearing traditional Invisalign or Invisalign Teen.

4. Opt for Cosmetic Gum Recontouring

Tired of being embarrassed by your gummy smile? Cosmetic gum recontouring is a gentle and effective cosmetic dentistry procedures that reshapes your gum line to eliminate excess gum tissue. Gone will be the appearance of short teeth – in its place will be an even, symmetrical smile that makes you look refreshed.

Many patients combine cosmetic gum recontouring with porcelain veneers for a stunning smile transformation. Getting rid of an overgrowth of gums and topping teeth with customized veneers results in a one-of-a-kind smile that looks natural and amazing.
