We all have to look at ourselves in the mirror each day. When you brush your teeth, do you then check them afterward? Do you find yourself wishing that something about your teeth looked better? Many of us do. What often happens, though, is that the perception of complexity stands in the way. You may want a better smile, but your mind tells you that the treatment you think you need would be expensive, or it will take a long time. A lot of the time, what we discover is that the smile can be made beautiful with very little hassle and very little time. Let’s explore this theory . . .
The color of your teeth will, in part, determine how you feel about yourself. The brightness of the smile also partially determines how others react to you. Studies have made it very clear that a bright smile is advantageous to our professional and social success, so why wait to banish the blahs of discoloration? At Galleria Dental Aesthetics, we help patients portray their inner brilliance through their smile using in-office Zoom whitening. Treatment is gentle, safe, and effective, lifting several shades in less than an hour.
We have come a long, long way since the early days of dentistry, in which metal caps and fillings were the norm. Today, most restorations are made to look like real teeth. For same-day care that counts, we use composite resin to fill cavities and repair certain types of damage. Tooth-colored fillings are a wonderful alternative to amalgam fillings because they are imperceptible and strong. Dental bonding also uses composite resin to restore teeth, and is capable of closing small gaps and hiding minor chips in one visit.
In addition to expedited cosmetic procedures related to the teeth, our dentists also perform gum contouring treatment for individuals who want to enhance the beauty of their smile by improving the proportions between teeth and gum tissue.
Cosmetic dentistry in our McLean practice is not overly complicated. Even those treatments that require more than one visit often only need one additional procedure to achieve the desired outcome. To learn how we can help you love your smile, call 703-448-1020.
