For high school and university students alike, graduation is just around the corner! It’s an exciting time filled with change and the energy of accomplishing something you’ve been working on for years. Let our Calgary dentists be some of the first to offer you their heartfelt congratulations. You’ve been working hard, and you deserve to feel excited and ready to take on the future. But before the big day arrives, you still have a little bit of work to do — you need to get your smile ready.
If you have cavities on any of your front teeth or old fillings that have gotten a bit discoloured, our expert Calgary dentists can help. We offer white fillings that precisely match the colour of your teeth, so they are visually indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel. It’s not unusual for students to grind their teeth, and regular grinding from the stress of exams or tough schedules can lead to small chips and cracks in the teeth. A white composite filling will not only help your smile to look perfect, it’ll also protect your tooth from bacteria that may otherwise hide in the chip.
Help Mother Nature Along.
As dentists, we’ve seen the entire rainbow of smiles. Tiny teeth, giant teeth, crowded teeth, perfectly straight teeth, and everything in between. While every smile has its charm, some need a little help. When teeth are out of alignment, are missing, or crooked, it can be hard to eat or speak, and you may be self-conscious about smiling for the camera. Dental veneers are a solution. Dental veneers are ultra thin shells made of porcelain or composite. They are invisibly attached to each tooth and offer an immediate change to the shape and colour of your teeth. With veneers, you can erase a gap, change the colour of stained teeth, and more. We recommend speaking with your Calgary dentist to discuss whether veneers should be used alone or as a complement to orthodontics or teeth whitening.
Most Calgarians heading towards grad will have already gone through some form of orthodontics. Today, braces or Invisalign is almost a rite of passage for teens. And that’s great news. We’re always happy to think that the next generation of Canadians are more happy with the shape and alignment of their teeth than any generation before them. However, you may still want a whiter smile. In general, we don’t recommend over the counter whitening. These products don’t work particularly well, they aren’t made to uniquely fit your mouth, and they don’t take your dental history into consideration. Instead, it’s best to work with your Calgary dentist. We’ll be able to suggest the procedure that is best for your particular needs, and the whitening offered by dentists is significantly more effective than the pharmacy version.
Are you looking forward to graduation? Make sure your smile is ready for all the pictures you’ll be keeping for a lifetime.
