First impressions are everything. This is especially true when it comes to finding a new job. According to a recent study from the American Dental Association, millennials note that having a beautiful smile is one of the primary factors in landing their dream jobs.

Over time, your smile can become stained, your teeth may shift out of place, or you may get some chips or cracks. These can all make it harder to feel confident about showing off your smile. At Edgewater Dental Arts, we offer a variety of cosmetic treatments to help improve the appearance of your smile. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the ways our Edgewater, Maryland dental staff can help give you the smile that’ll help you land your next job.

Are You Holding Back From Smiling? You’re Not Alone

First, we’ll go over some of the standout statistics from the ADA study. Young adults aged 18-34 tend to avoid smiling because they’re worried about gum disease and cavities, and 30 percent of respondents said that their oral health makes them self-conscious, which affects their job interviews.

Cosmetic dentistry can help you feel confident in your smile again. At Edgewater Dental Arts, we offer teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and Invisalign® clear aligner therapy. Let’s take a look at each of these treatments below.

Zoom Teeth Whitening & At-home Whitening

Zoom Teeth Whitening can brighten up your smile dramatically in just one hour. In fact, on average, your teeth will be up to eight shades whiter in just one treatment!

We also offer at-home whitening kits using professional-grade whitening gel to improve the look of your smile in the comfort of your own home.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are one of the most effective cosmetic dental treatments. Using thin sheets of porcelain that are bonded to your teeth, veneers can improve the overall appearance of your smile by evening out the shape and size of your teeth, brightening your teeth, and fixing chips and cracks. Veneers are a permanent procedure that can last for up to 20 years if properly cared for.

Invisalign® Clear Aligner Therapy

Want a straighter smile but don’t want to commit to metal braces? Invisalign® uses subtle, clear aligners to shift your teeth into their desired positions. Every two weeks, you’ll receive a new set of aligners to progress your treatment.
