Who doesn’t want to feel lovable on Valentine’s Day? Whether you’re taken or single, there’s nothing wrong with giving yourself a little love and taking care of an element of yourself that perhaps doesn’t get as much attention as it should – your teeth! More than a new hairstyle, a new outfit, or a fresh manicure, a stunningly revitalized smile is what will make you feel amazing and look amazing. Here are five quick ways your holistic dentist or cosmetic dentist can help transform you, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
1. Teeth Whitening
When you want a quick-fix for your look, teeth whitening makes one of the biggest impacts. Professional dental teeth whitening treatments are fast and easy. If you opt for an in-office treatment, the whitening will take just an hour to complete and your teeth will be up to eight shades brighter. Done correctly, teeth whitening is customized for every patient, and it can be adjusted to decrease the sensitivity that can occur with bleaching.
2. Non-Mercury Tooth Fillings
Ready to finally rid your body of the toxic amalgam fillings that are plaguing it? Make your appointment for silver filling removal and composite filling replacement. Visit a dentist who follows the protocol for the safe removal and disposal of harmful silver amalgam tooth fillings so that neither you, the other occupants of the dental office, or the environment are harmed by this procedure. Once your teeth have been cleaned, tooth-colored composite fillings can be put in place. You’ll be healthier, and you’ll feel comfortable enough to throw back your head and laugh – no unsightly fillings to be seen.
3. Teeth Cleaning
Have you been postponing your latest dental exam and teeth cleaning? Don’t! Be proactive about your oral health! Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to brighten up your healthy grin. Your teeth will be gleaming, smooth, and super-clean after a professional hygienist and dentist have their hands on them. And during your appointment you can take the time to discuss any cosmetic dentistry procedures that interest you, such as the versatile and popular porcelain veneers (you know you want to feel like a superstar on February 14 and every other day – veneers can get you there).
4. Facial Cosmetic Rejuvenation
If nips and tucks aren’t for you, no problem. Facial cosmetic rejuvenation can eliminate sagging around your eyes, wrinkles, and sun damage without any major downtime. Consider Catalina plasma rich cell therapy, Juvederm Voluma, Restylane injectable gels, Latisse for lashes, or regenerative plasma rich growth factor. Look younger, feel younger, in no time. Remember too that certain cosmetic dentistry techniques can eliminate fine lines around the mouth and plump up your lips
5. Biocompatibility Testing
It’s hard to love others if you don’t love yourself, and if you’re worried about the state of your health it’s time to rule out some of the most common culprits that are interfering in your love life. More often than not, your teeth hold the answers. Biocompatibility testing has been responsible for discovering that patients have diabetes, that they’re suffering the after-effects of a dangerous root canal, or that they’re feeling the effects of living with toxic silver fillings. A simple blood test can identify the oral health problems that are causing your health issues, and an appointment to treat and solve these problems for good will make your Valentine’s Day that much sweeter. Biocompatibility testing will change your life.
