Are you looking forward to wearing a mask this Halloween so you can conceal your unsightly smile? If you’re so self-conscious about your teeth that you don’t want them to be on display on this spooky holiday or any other day of the year, it’s time to start thinking about how a customized smile makeover can elevate your Halloween costume and serve as an excellent permanent accessory all year long.

Get a Flawless Smile for Trick or Treat

Don’t set your sights on a grungy Halloween costume because you’ll feel relieved popping in a set of false teeth that look worse than your own. Go big and opt for a costume that demands super-white, gorgeous teeth, like a celebrity, politician, or even a dentist. How do you get the white teeth they have? Chances are, their smile makeovers have come from:

  • Teeth whitening: Professional teeth whitening treatments use powerful bleaching agents that can’t be bought over-the-counter. These materials and your dentist’s careful application ensure that the whitening process is fast, accurate, and sensitivity-free. ZOOM! whitening is a dramatic change for qualified patients.
  • Porcelain veneers: This smile makeover procedure takes a little longer than others, but in just two visits to your Arlington cosmetic dentist, you can have a smile that is transformed in all ways. The super-thin veneers are customized in size, shape, and color to fit carefully over your natural teeth to build out a flawless new smile.
  • Porcelain crowns: One or two problem teeth can interrupt the look of your entire smile. Instead of letting one tooth hold so much power over your self-confidence and appearance, talk to your dentist about the possibility of a customized porcelain crown that caps the unsightly tooth so it blends in with the rest of your smile.

Repair a Tombstone Smile

Some people enjoy drawing attention to their teeth on Halloween. They play up the gap in their smile, their missing tooth, their crooked teeth. If you’re not one of those people who enjoys highlighting these elements and considers them drawbacks instead of quirks, it may be time to make some tweaks:

  • Dental bonding: Many patients who get dental bonding lament that they didn’t know about this option sooner. A quick, easy, non-invasive procedure, bonding can correct all those little cracks, chips, stains, and gaps that mar your whole smile.
  • Invisalign: If you are ready to go for a full-on smile makeover, Invisalign will take you there – and no one will even be able to tell you’re wearing the trays on Halloween or any other day. Talk about a full-time costume.
  • Dental implant: One of the most detrimental things that can happen to anyone’s oral health is to have a missing tooth. It is critical to fill in the empty space with a dental implant that replaces both tooth root and crown for a repair above and below the gumline.
