Some people consider January 1 the time to make resolutions, but some folks consider summer the opportunity to create a better version of themselves. Whether it’s a new job, a well-deserved vacation, or a revolutionary diet that’s going to help you fit into your swimsuit, no rejuvenating act is complete without the right accessories. And one of your finest accessories is your smile. Is yours in shape for summer? A smile makeover can ensure that it is ready for every season of the year.
Whiten Up
Summer brings with it plenty of special events, from weddings to graduations, class reunions to barbecues. You want to look your very best when you see family and friends, especially if it’s been a while since you’ve been face-to-face with each other. One of the easiest and fastest ways to get a smile makeover is with a professional teeth whitening treatment. This pain-free, non-invasive procedure can take as little as an hour to complete in the dentist’s office, and the results can make your teeth look up to 10 times whiter than they are.

Cap the Flaws
How long have you been dragging your feet about tooth repairs? You know the ones we’re talking about – the hairline cracks, the loose old crown, the completely broken tooth, the root canal tooth that you never returned to get capped. Summer is the time to turn your smile beautiful again, to make it look healthy and complete. Porcelain crowns restore damaged teeth to their original shape and size, while also giving them strength. Crowns protect weak teeth, hold dental bridges in place, and give you a natural-looking, fully functioning smile.

Correct Everything
If only there were one cosmetic dentistry procedure that repairs every tooth complaint you have. As it turns out, there is such a treatment – porcelain veneers. This incredibly versatile cosmetic dentistry repair is able to give you a smile that is equal in shape, size, and shade. Misaligned teeth can be straightened. Short teeth can be lengthened. Stained teeth can be whitened. Gaps can be closed up. Porcelain veneers are responsible for covering nearly every type of aesthetic complaint, in only one procedure, usually over the course of two visits to the dentist. New smile in one? Yes, please, especially if we’re talking prepless veneers.

Straighten Up
If tooth alignment is what you seek, there is no better time than the present to get your orthodontic dreams in motion. But not everyone is keen on being a brace face, no matter what age you are. Thank goodness for Invisalign. You can still enjoy every bit of your summer, from vacations to special occasions, without worrying about your orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is easily removed so you can eat whatever you want whenever you want and, if you take good care of your aligners so they remain clear and nearly invisible, no one will ever know you’re wearing them. Straight teeth before Christmas? It could happen. Most Invisalign treatments take an average of 12 months to complete, but you’ll notice a difference in how your smile looks shortly after you begin treatment.
