Christmas is a time for giving, but it can often be a difficult task to find a present that will be truly appreciated by your loved one. Instead of ending up with a last-minute gift-voucher to put under the Christmas tree this year, why not give a truly special and uplifting gift instead? Giving the gift of a cosmetic dentistry procedure can dramatically improve the self-confidence of the special someone in your life and is guaranteed to be a Christmas present to remember!
Brightening the teeth can completely transform the face and boost confidence. Professional teeth whitening procedures are becoming more and more commonplace among people who have discoloured teeth. The results are very fast so your loved one will see the results immediately.
Composite White Fillings
Many older people who have had dental fillings have had the metal variety adhered to their teeth. While this works efficiently to protect the tooth from further decay, many people consider them to be unattractive. Today, composite white fillings, which are the same colour as the tooth, are a much-preferred option as they are not noticeable when you talk, eat or laugh. If an old filling needs replacing, why not help to cover the cost as a Christmas gift?
Crooked teeth can be a big source of embarrassment so some people causing them to be reluctant to smile or show their teeth as a result. Instead of having braces fitted, there is now a procedure known as Invisalign Orthodontics where clear, thin trays are fitted to straighten and correct the teeth. Unlike braces, almost no one can tell that they are being worn. They are more comfortable, less expensive and work faster than traditional braces. Giving the gift of straight teeth would truly be a gift to cherish for years to come!
For teeth that need reshaping or recolouring, dental bonding might be the answer. This procedure allows dentists to change the size and colour of a tooth by applying a tooth-coloured adhesive to the tooth. This might be a nice gift for someone who is concerned about the appearance of one or more of their teeth.
For people who have missing teeth, the gift of a new tooth would be a present to treasure. Dental implants serve as a tooth root to anchor in a replacement tooth, bridge or denture and would be a gift to remember.
