Doesn’t it feel great to do something nice for another person? Whether it’s donating to a favorite charity or giving up your seat on a crowded bus, there’s something especially gratifying about putting your time and energy to good use. At Modern Dentistry of Shrewsbury, we think teaching our patients how to have a bright, healthy smile is time well spent. Dr. Todd Pizzi, a cosmetic dentist in Shrewsbury, MA, does just that. By the way, Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center and Wildlife Sanctuary is holding a Volunteer Day on Wednesday from 10am to 12pm. What a great way to do good and have fun!
A More Pearly Set of Whites
Rare is the person whose teeth are naturally brilliant white; in fact, there are 28 recognized natural shades of tooth enamel. A brighter smile can take years off your age, making you appear more successful, more attractive, and even more professional. Teeth whitening with the KoR Deep Bleaching system combines two professional-strength treatments to eradicate even the most powerful stains.
Too-Small Teeth? Try Veneers
If you feel that your teeth are disproportionately small to your face, porcelain veneers are an excellent solution. Your dentist can also use veneers to correct the shape of your teeth, or even to cover up tooth enamel that has been permanently discolored by coffee, smoking, or taking the antibiotic tetracycline. Veneers are also an effective solution for teeth that aren’t quite straight yet aren’t crooked enough to justify treatment with traditional orthodontic work.
Alternatives to Braces
Moderately crooked teeth aren’t just a cosmetic flaw; they are also more difficult to keep free of plaque and tartar. Unfortunately, traditional metal braces don’t make teeth any easier to clean, at least not during the standard two-year treatment time. Enter Invisalign, often referred to as invisible braces. Using a set of see-through, plastic aligners, Invisalign gently eases teeth into alignment, usually in one year or less. The aligners are easily removed to accommodate your toothbrush and floss, and they can be set aside while you enjoy your meals. During wear, the aligners are all but undetectable—something that can hardly be said of metal braces.
