According to NBC News, cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening have seen a nearly 50% increase over the past year. Other procedures like teeth straightening have seen similar jumps. As the world opens up following the pandemic, more and more people are choosing to put their best smile forward with cosmetic dentistry.
More people are using cosmetic dentistry to get the smile they’ve always wanted. Whether you want to achieve your goals with in-office or at-home bleaching treatments for whiter teeth, or are making plans for straighter teeth with Invisalign, cosmetic dentistry can give you a confidence boost. Dental veneers are another solution for teeth that are heavily stained and misaligned.
More People Are Choosing Cosmetic Dentistry
Social calendars are quickly filling up as more people get vaccinated against COVID-19. This has led to a 47% increase in teeth whitening, surpassing even pre-pandemic levels. And why shouldn’t they? As the masks come off and the Zoom meetings come to an end, more and more people are wanting to get back to normal with a brighter smile.
Dr. Jeffrey Sulitzer, DMD, is the head of a popular clear dental aligner company. According to him, your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, along with your eyes. He explains, “It is vital that people feel better about themselves, feel better about their health,” he said. “When they start to reveal themselves and go back into the social environment, the value of a smile is just incredible.”

Like whitening, dentists are seeing a large increase in patients interested in straighter teeth. If you are too, then Invisalign is the perfect solution for your misaligned teeth. We can design a series of clear plastic trays using:
- Digital scans
We combine these to create a 3D image of your mouth to learn how your teeth align and how to correct them. The end result is a series of aligners custom-made to fit your mouth and help you achieve your goals.
Keep in mind that you must qualify for Invisalign. In some cases, orthodontic issues may be too complex and require metal braces to correct them.
Invisalign is a wonderful alternative to traditional braces. Rather than affixing metal brackets, wires, and rubber bands to your teeth, all you need to do is put on your clear aligners. This allows you to straighten your teeth discreetly and even remove them to brush and floss.

Teeth that are stained, crooked, uneven in length, or gapped can make you feel self-conscious and less expressive than you’d normally be. If this is the case, it may be time to consider porcelain veneers. Other types of veneers are available, but porcelain veneers are more stain-resistant and are able to reflect light similarly to teeth, providing a more natural look.
We can provide you with a new set of veneers in just a few visits. We start with a diagnostic appointment to gather information about your teeth, schedule another appointment to prep your teeth for veneers, and the final appointment is when they’re applied. You’ll be left with a long-term solution for straighter teeth.

As the world opens up, more people are using cosmetic dentistry to get the smile of their dreams. We offer in-office and at-home teeth bleaching treatments that are guaranteed to work. For straighter teeth without the hardware, consider Invisalign. Dental veneers can help with teeth that are deeply stained, gapped, and misaligned.
