Smile for the Holidays

The term “quick fix” has a bad reputation in American life, implying something involving shoddy planning or less-than-acceptable results. But quite often, a fast solution also can be a lasting solution, and one that’s delivered using superior materials and the prospect of an excellent outcome.


If you’re worrying about attending upcoming holiday gatherings because your teeth aren’t “photo op ready,” cosmetic dentistry has several ways to resolve those concerns rapidly. Let’s take a look at two solutions that can be in place and beautifying your mouth quickly: implant-supported dentures (also known as All-on-4 or “teeth in a day”) and porcelain veneers.

2 Ways Cosmetic Dentistry Can Boost Your Holiday “Smile Power”

  1. All-on-4 supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures can be a dream come true for patients who struggle with loose-fitting traditional dentures. This technique anchors four implants in the patient’s jaw and attaches natural-looking overdentures on top of them. An added bonus with these dentures is that, unlike traditional dentures, the dental implants that support the overdentures help prevent bone loss in the jaw, known as resorption.
  2. Porcelain veneers. On the other end of the cosmetic dentistry spectrum, if you have natural teeth that are basically healthy but have minor appearance problems due to problems with staining, chipping, or rotation issues, porcelain veneers can quickly take your teeth from “meh” to marvelous! Veneers can be placed in as few as two dental visits, and you can begin showing off your new smile and returning to your normal routine immediately.

“You don’t have to wait until the new year to create a great smile, thanks to the tools that cosmetic dentistry provides us with these days,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist with a practice in central Phoenix. “You can have some procedures finished in plenty of time to show off your new smile at your holiday parties and special occasions.”
