Most people are excited to get back to life like it was before the pandemic. You might be looking forward to seeing family and friends you haven’t seen in over a year, traveling, going out for a night on the town, or just enjoying mask-free life. Regardless of what you’re excited about, you might feel a little insecure about showing your teeth again if you’ve been able to hide them behind a mask for the last year. You will no longer have a shield to hide your biggest insecurity. However, with help from cosmetic dentistry at Divine Smiles, you can achieve a beautiful smile you can’t wait to show off in post-pandemic life.

Get Rid of Stains and Discoloration

One of the first ways we can help you get ready for post-pandemic life is by getting rid of stains and discoloration on your teeth. After a year of lockdown, it’s pretty common to experience stains from eating food like tomato sauce, berries, and chocolate, or from drinking coffee, tea, or red wine. Thankfully, it’s easy to get rid of stains with professional teeth whitening. We offer two options for professional whitening; in the office, or at home. If you decide to whiten in our office, your treatment will take about an hour and you will leave with a visibly whiter smile. If you whiten at home, we will provide you with a GLO whitening kit you can use up to 4 times a day until you achieve your desired results.

We can also get rid of stains and discoloration with a more permanent treatment option—porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers do not stain and cover the entire front of your teeth. This means you don’t have to worry about skipping your cup of coffee or rinsing after each swig of red wine with sparkling water. Porcelain veneers offer everlasting white teeth. The best part? They can also address other cosmetic concerns we will discuss below.

Hide Gaps

Gapped teeth are one of the easiest dental problems to hide outside of stains. You might think that orthodontics is your only option but that is far from the truth. We can hide your gaps in just one or two dental appointments so you can have a brand new smile, fast! We can use either dental bonding or porcelain veneers to reshape your teeth to fill in the gaps.

If you’re okay with your results taking more time, we highly recommend Invisalign treatment instead. Invisalign will slowly move all your teeth to look straight and gap-free. You can achieve your results in 3 months to 1 year and then enjoy them for the rest of your life as long as you wear your retainers as instructed. Hiding gaps is an easy way to get your smile ready for post-pandemic life!

Straighten Your Teeth

If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, your best option is to get Invisalign treatment to straighten your teeth permanently. You will wear each set of clear aligners for about a week at a time for 3 to 12 months to gradually help your teeth move into their desired position. Although you won’t get to enjoy instant results, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible so nobody will even notice you’re wearing braces. They will just notice your teeth look straighter every time they see you. In addition, you can remove the aligners for eating so you can still enjoy all your favorite foods again and gatherings with friends at your favorite restaurants without any restrictions.

Replace Missing Teeth

If you’ve been living with missing teeth throughout the pandemic, now is your chance to emerge back to society with a full smile again! Dr. Clancy can help replace your missing teeth with one of our options such as dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures. Depending on how many teeth you’re missing and your desired results, we will recommend the best option for you. Once you replace your missing teeth, you will notice an increase in confidence, easier ability to speak and chew. Get ready to chomp into your favorite meal at your favorite restaurant with your new smile!

Restore Teeth Back to Full Health

If you have damaged, worn, broken, chipped, or cracked teeth, we can help restore these teeth back to health to not only look great but to improve your health. For minor problems such as cracks or chips, we might recommend porcelain veneers to cover the damage. For more severe issues, we might recommend dental crowns, inlays, or onlays.

Change Your Teeth Shape and Size

Teeth aren’t always naturally the same size and shape. Especially if you were prone to clenching and grinding your teeth and they have lost some height. Thankfully, with treatments such as porcelain veneers and dental crowns, we can change the shape and size of your teeth so they look more symmetrical and therefore more attractive.
