The school year is winding down now that it’s nearly May. A lot of teens and young adults are eager for their study-free summer. That said, your child may still have another task ahead: Graduation! They’ll want to celebrate well if they’re about to get their high school or college degree. Luckily, you can help your graduate look fabulous for their walk across the stage. Try gifting them one (or more) of these cosmetic dental services for graduating students.

Teeth Whitening

Your student likely won’t want to sport yellow teeth at their graduation. So, getting them a teeth whitening treatment would be a good idea.

Teeth whitening (per its name) is a procedure that brightens one’s smile. It works by using bleaching gel to remove stains from tooth enamel. However, it now comes in one of two forms: in-office treatment or take-home kits. The in-office method is ideal if you’re short on time, as it only takes an hour. Meanwhile, a take-home kit takes weeks to work and suits those with flexible schedules.

Gum Recontouring

Maybe your graduate suffers from a “gummy smile.” In that case, they’d stand to benefit from gum recontouring.

Gum recontouring is a way to remove unneeded gum tissue. By using a special laser, it gets rid of the excess to reveal more of your smile’s white enamel. This process is quick, painless, and fairly low-cost. Better yet, its effects are permanent. Your graduate would enjoy the results long after their ceremony!

Direct Bonding

Does your student only need a slight touch-up on their grin? Well, a direct bonding treatment could do that job nicely.

Direct bonding is a service that hides a patient’s minor smile flaws. In particular, it applies a tooth-colored resin to the affected teeth. This material will then hide any small stains, chips, cracks, or spaces that are present. Once it does, treatment results should blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. They can also last for years to come with proper care.

Porcelain Veneers

Your graduate may want to have several smile flaws treated at once. If so, their best bet is to get porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are thin, tooth-sized shells set on the fronts of teeth. Once placed, they can hide nearly all dental faults – chips, cracks, stains, fractures, and even misalignments. Their porcelain material further ensures that the results match those of other teeth. That way, others will only see a gorgeous grin that looks natural yet flawless.

These are only a few of the cosmetic dental services for graduating students. Talk to your local dentist to learn about others your graduate may like!
