Get a Hollywood Smile With Whitening or Veneers

You’ve stopped smiling in photographs. Or maybe you never did smile. Even if your teeth look OK in the mirror, they look yellow, uneven, or both in selfies and photos. 

Or perhaps you broke or chipped a tooth. Maybe, despite orthodontics in the past, you still have a few teeth that are out of alignment or even twisted or gapped.

You don’t have to settle for the smile you were born with or the one that developed over time. You can take control of your smile, as celebrities do, and correct your imperfections with a smile makeover.

At Simple Smiles in Johnson City, Tennessee, our expert cosmetic dentists’ first goal is to ensure that you have healthy teeth and gums. But once you’ve achieved oral health, it’s time to work on the smile of your dreams. 

Small imperfections add up

If you wonder why your smile isn’t all you want it to be, there could be a number of factors that contribute to your dissatisfaction. One common issue that affects the appearance of your teeth is your diet. Some of your favorite foods and beverages may stain your teeth, including:

Tobacco products also turn your teeth yellow or brown. These stains can become deep-set over time as they settle in below your enamel. You can also develop age-related discoloration as your enamel thins out and reveals the yellowish dentin below.

You also may be unhappy with your smile because of small cracks or chips that occur as a result of oral trauma. You might also develop cracks and breaks because of instability in your teeth caused by poor oral hygiene or underlying health conditions.

When you eat a lot of hard foods or chew on inedible objects, such as fingernails and pencils, your risk of breaking or cracking a tooth increases. These imperfections can leave you unhappy with your smile’s appearance and lead to more serious dental complications.

You may be bothered by imperfections that have nothing to do with lifestyle. Abnormalities such as gaps, crooked or uneven teeth, or easily stained teeth may be part of your genetics.

You can improve your smile

No matter which factors have contributed to your dissatisfaction, at Simple Smiles, we offer two solutions for repairing your teeth and restoring or enhancing your smile. Depending on your goals, we help you choose from:

Professional teeth whitening

Professional teeth whitening is the safest and most effective way to erase stains from your teeth. Professional whitening is the only solution for deep-set stains, which aren’t treatable with over-the-counter whiteners and whitening toothpastes. And it only takes about an hour.

During your in-office professional teeth whitening session, we apply a concentrated bleaching agent to a customized tray that fits perfectly over your teeth. The bleaching agent effectively lifts stains without harming your teeth or existing dental work, such as fillings.

The at-home Zoom! teeth whitening system we give you at Simple Smiles allows you to whiten your teeth yourself in just one weekend. Your teeth are whiter and brighter, so your smile looks healthier. And more youthful.

Veneers

Veneers are expertly crafted, customized, thin shells of porcelain that fit over the surface of your teeth to correct tooth problems, like chips or cracks. You can also use veneers to address irregularly shaped teeth that interfere with a healthy smile.

We offer veneers for anyone with good oral health who wants to quickly improve the overall appearance of their teeth. The veneer process involves two appointments. During the first, we make impressions of your teeth to send to a lab that creates the veneer. We also prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel and then protecting them with temporary veneers.

During the second visit, we apply your permanent veneers. We bond the veneers directly to your teeth, enhancing both the appearance and strength of each treated tooth. Veneers also resist stains from tobacco and foods to keep your smile bright and white.

Book your Hollywood smile now

Both teeth whitening and veneers give you results quickly. You can have a restored smile within just a few hours or days. Our in-office treatments ensure that you’re ready for the next big social event or other major occasion where you want to look your best.

We thoroughly evaluate your teeth and gums to determine whether teeth whitening or veneers are the best option for you. Simply schedule a consultation at Simple Smiles by calling the office or by booking an appointment online today
