It’s never too early to start thinking about your senior pictures; if you’re currently in high school, now is the time. These pictures will be remembered by your friends for decades to come. You’re not just taking any old selfies here! This isn’t a picture in which you want to look mediocre – you want to look great! A smile is the best accessory anyone could ask for, so make sure yours is camera-ready by paying a visit to the dentist.
Come to True Dental Care Of Bloomfield for a consultation to see how we can help you achieve the smile of your dreams for your senior pictures. If your teeth are gapped, crooked, stained, or misshapen, and you want to do something about it, come to our dental office in Bloomfield, NJ. We can fix them!
To give you the best possible care, we will need to look at your mouth, bones, and gums through X-rays. We understand that every patient is different, so we’ll work with you to develop a unique treatment plan that fits your needs and timeline. Due to the high demand for our services, we recommend that you schedule your visit with us as soon as possible.
We understand that you might feel hesitant about getting metal braces, especially if your teeth are only slightly crooked. Invisalign® is the best way to straighten your teeth without anyone knowing! Surrounding your teeth, Invisalign® invincible aligners look like a full plastic retainer!
They are gradually moved into the correct position by exerting pressure on the teeth. You will receive a new aligner approximately every two weeks, which can be done at home, thus saving you on time spent in our office. Another advantage that our teenage patients love about this option is the fact that the aligners are removable. You can take them out to eat, brush your teeth, play sports, and still have a social life without worrying about how your mouth will look.
Wearing these aligners for at least 20 hours a day gives you the control to still enjoy your teenage years without constantly worrying about your teeth. Your treatment will continue as planned if you stick to the suggested wear time.
You can improve the appearance of your smile quickly with dental bonding if you’re approaching your senior picture deadline. Dental bonding is the quickest way to enhance your smile before taking senior pictures. It only takes one appointment, whereas dental veneers can take a month, and Invisalign® usually requires an entire year.
During your initial consultation, we will sit down with you and discuss your dental concerns and set up a plan to correct them. This procedure is non-invasive and can be done with or without help from a dental lab.
For instance, if one tooth juts out further than the rest, we could shave it down and use bonding to even it out with the other teeth. If your teeth are heavily stained and yellow, we can cover them with a dental bonding material.
Did you know that dental bonding can be used to repair cracked teeth, change their size and shape, as well as fill in the gaps between them? The great thing about dental bonding material is that it can be shaped however required once it is applied to the teeth. After it is fixed and looks great, we will harden the material with a dental light. Then you’re good to go! You can have your senior pictures taken that week, and your smile will look great.
For the whitest, most dazzling smile that could rival any Hollywood star, dental veneers are your best bet. Dental veneers are thinly-crafted porcelain shells that adhere to the surface of your prepared teeth. Veneers are fitted over your existing teeth to replace the outer layer or enamel. Once in place, all you see is the veneer and not the original tooth.
Veneers can be used to change the shape and size of your teeth so that way, your smile is symmetrical. In addition to making your teeth appear straighter, whiter, and shinier, veneers can also be used to fix minor alignment issues and cover up dark stains.
Everyone’s teeth yellow and wear down as they age, but your dental health can still affect your smile later in life. If your teeth have been damaged due to cavities or an accident, our dental team can help you regain your smile. One of our best treatment options is dental crowns.
A dental crown is a covering placed on the entire tooth that is either chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged. A dental crown is commonly referred to as a “cap” because it covers the entirety of the visible tooth. At first glance, a dental crown may look like your regular teeth. However, if you take a closer look, you’ll notice that it’s made of porcelain— providing a more natural appearance than other materials.
Resins, also called composite fillings, are tooth-colored and protect small to midsize areas of your teeth against the pressure generated from chewing.
Similarly, composite fillings are fast and involve a simple cosmetic dental procedure, which takes around 30 minutes or less per tooth. Not only do they provide support, but they can also be used to fix teeth that are chipped, worn, or broken. Also, composites look so natural that they may be used on both front and back teeth.
With help from True Dental Care Of Bloomfield, you can look forward to smiles that dazzle in all of your life’s special moments!
