If you’ve got a loved one graduating from high school or college, you want to give them the perfect gift, something useful that will benefit them for years to come. How about the gift of self-confidence? That’s what you’d be giving them with a smile makeover from Carmichael Dental Care.

If your graduate is heading to college this fall, they’ll show more confidence in class and in social settings with an attractive smile. For college graduates, a great-looking smile is an asset in job interviews.

At Carmichael Dental Care, your graduate can get cosmetic dentistry procedures to correct many common smile imperfections. Our Montgomery, AL dentists can advise you on the ones that will work best for your graduate and can help them create a plan for a comprehensive smile makeover, if desired. You can schedule a consultation with one of our dentists for your graduate by calling 334-600-1423.

As a starting point, here is some information about our cosmetic dentistry procedures.

A Bright Smile Boosts Confidence

A bright white smile makes a great impression on others, in a classroom or a job interview. Fortunately, teeth whitening is one of our easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental treatments.

You can choose from two different teeth whitening options for your graduate’s smile makeover: home whitening or in-office whitening. Both yield brighter results than drugstore products, since they contain higher amounts of whitening ingredients.

In the office, your graduate’s smile will lighten by several shades in about an hour. For home whitening, we’ll supply them with custom-made whitening trays and professional-strength bleaching gel. Some of our patients like to start with an office treatment, and then use home whitening to maintain their great-looking results.

Dental Veneers Can Offer Dramatic Smile Improvement

Dental veneers are one of the most dramatic ways to improve your graduate’s smile. They can be used to change the size, shape, and/or color of teeth. Your graduate will work with one of our dentists to design the look they want to achieve. When custom-made porcelain veneers are applied to their teeth, they’ll hide imperfections like chips, small gaps in teeth, stubborn stains, and worn-down teeth.

Since the high-quality porcelain used for our veneers is durable and stain resistant, your graduate should be able to wear them for at least a decade. In fact, veneers often last many years longer than that. Many graduates have busy schedules; fortunately they can usually get their veneers in just two appointments.

Complete a Smile Makeover With These Touches

Small smile improvements can often make a big difference in how your graduate’s smile looks – and how they feel about it. Your grad might benefit from making these cosmetic services part of their smile makeover:

  • Tooth Bonding – During a bonding procedure, our dentists will apply layers of tooth-colored composite to teeth to conceal minor flaws like stains and small chips. Though bonding is more affordable than veneers, the results won’t last as long. Composite is also more vulnerable to staining than porcelain veneers.
  • Gum Reshaping – If your graduate has an uneven gumline or an excess of tissue that makes their smile look overly “gummy,” we can use a laser to quickly and painlessly correct these issues.

Your graduate may also be interested in freshening their facial appearance. We offer two kinds of facial rejuvenation, both of which are administered with quick and virtually pain-free injections. We can give you a topical anesthestic if you’re worried about discomfort. Receiving these injections from our dentists will give you peace of mind. With their medical education and training, they have an expertise in facial anatomy you won’t find at a facility like a day spa.

Our facial rejuvenation options are:

  • Muscle Relaxant Treatment – This treatment relaxes your facial muscles to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Dermal Filler – You can add volume to thin lips, sunken cheeks, or other areas of the face for a more vibrant appearance.
