Give Yourself the Gift of a White Smile [blog]

With the holiday season in full swing, we thought we’d help you simplify your shopping list. You’ve probably already thought of gifts for your kids, parents, grandparents, friends, and even coworkers – but don’t forget about yourself! We can all use an extra gift during the holidays! Give yourself a bright, white smile this year from DocMark General & Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Markusen and his team can transform your smile faster than Santa can get his reindeer off the ground! We offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to our patients, but let’s focus on just two of those for now – dental veneers and teeth whitening. These are both fast treatments that can dramatically alter your appearance and instantly give you more confidence.

Unlock a Brilliant Smile With Dental Veneers

If you’re not familiar with dental veneers, then you owe it to yourself to learn more about them. Dr. Markusen loves using the power of veneers to help his patients who want to create a more attractive smile. The reason? These thin, wafer-like shells bond to the front of imperfect teeth to instantly make them more attractive.

If any of your teeth are chipped, cracked, badly stained, pitted, misshapen, or if you have small gaps – then veneers will quickly hide these imperfections and make your smile brighter, whiter, and more appealing. For most patients, it will take only two visits to get your new veneers.

Dr. Markusen offers many other types of teeth veneers, depending on your needs and your situation. Many of our patients opt for standard porcelain veneers. Standard veneers, like the IPS e.max family of veneers, normally require that we remove a small amount of tooth enamel to make room for them.

You may also want to consider low-prep or no-prep veneers. Lumineers and DURAthin require either very little no tooth modification respectively. And we can place EasySmile LifeLike veneers in only a single visit. It literally takes just minutes per tooth, with no enamel removal needed since they are as thin as a contact lens.

Once your veneers are bonded into place, no matter which kind you use, you will get years of beautiful functionality out of them. Not only will they enhance your smile, they will also strengthen your teeth and help prevent further tooth damage.

Now you can begin to understand why Dr. Markusen likes using veneers so much for brightening our patients’ smiles – especially at this time of year when you may have holiday parties and get-togethers planned. When you come in for your consultation, he will discuss all of your veneers options and help you decide which one will work best for your situation.

Put a Little Glam in Your Smile With Teeth Whitening

There’s no better time than right now to get the whiter, brighter smile you’ve been thinking about. One of the quickest and most budget-friendly ways to do this is through teeth whitening from DocMark General & Cosmetic Dentistry.

For many of our patients wanting a more attractive smile, teeth whitening offers the optimal balance of benefits and cost. With less of an investment than new veneers require, you can still get a whiter smile and a more glamorous look, especially if your teeth are in good shape otherwise.

We offer whitening treatment using the LUMIBRITE® Take-Home whitening kit. Using impressions taken of your teeth, we’ll supply you with custom whitening trays that you can use whenever you like. You can whiten your smile while lounging around the house in your PJs, watching TV, soaking in the tub, or even reading a mystery novel. Your treatment will be completely on your terms – when and how you want.

Plus, the LUMIBRITE® system is much more concentrated and effective than over-the-counter whitening strips or kits. It can be tempting to go with one of these less expensive options. However, the results are usually less than ideal and will take longer to create the beautiful, white smile you want – if they ever do.

With custom trays fitted specifically to your teeth, you won’t worry about the whitening agent getting onto your gums and causing irritation. The concentrated solution will stay put, doing its job quickly and efficiently – almost like magic! In just a couple of weeks, you can look in the mirror and see a whiter, brighter, more aesthetically pleasing smile gleaming back at you.

And with our professional whitening treatment, you’ll always have our knowledgeable staff ready to help if you ever have a question. Our goal is for you to get the cosmetic results you want, so you can smile more confidently and show off your grin wherever you go!

This holiday season, give yourself a bright, white smile. At DocMark General & Cosmetic Dentistry, we have two great ways to do it – dental veneers and teeth whitening. Call us today at 843-314-4877 to get started!
