When you choose to fix your smile with cosmetic dentistry, you’re not just transforming your smile, but transforming your overall dental health. Every year, patients opt for different types of procedures to change their smile. At élan by Dr. Megan Hodges, we’re noticing a handful of cosmetic dentistry trends this year. See what they are and if your smile could benefit from the procedures.
Teeth whitening is always one of the top cosmetic dentistry trends. However, with a larger amount of online retailers selling whitening kits, fewer patients are seeking professional treatments. We do still encourage our patients to opt for professional kits over options sold online. Professional kits are safe to use and always deliver amazing results. With an online kit, you never know what you’re going to get. It’s also possible to damage your teeth without the supervision of your Tulsa cosmetic dentist.
Porcelain veneers never go out of style for a reason; they’re an all-in-one treatment solution that addresses a handful of cosmetic problems. However, we are noticing more patients opt for Lumineers since they require less prep work and the procedure is reversible if the patients choose not to have veneers in the future. If you’re searching for a treatment solution that whitens, straightens, and covers your teeth’s flaws, consider porcelain veneers or Lumineers.
If you have a missing tooth or several missing teeth, there’s no comparison to dental implants. Implants are the only tooth replacement option that replaces your tooth just like a natural tooth would. Dental implants provide your new tooth with stability and security so it looks and feels natural.
We’re also seeing a lot of patients who feel unhappy with their current set of dentures. They either don’t fit correctly or they make them look older than they actually are. The Denture Fountain of Youth® is a dentures alternative that can actually help you look younger! FOY® Dentures fit your mouth perfectly and consider your facial structure. The end result is dentures that bit better, feel more comfortable, rest securely, look more attractive, and reduce wrinkles and loose skin!
The last 2020 cosmetic dentistry trend at our dental office is Invisalign. Invisalign clear aligners are popular among both teens and adults. They’re a discreet, convenient, and comfortable alternative to metal braces. You can eat whatever you want and keep your treatment a secret between your cosmetic dentist.
