While graduating is a major sign of achievement, it also means many changes ahead. Whether the graduate in your life is headed to the college of their dreams or starting their professional career, you want them to be prepared for their new upcoming journey. And there’s no better gift for that than an upgraded smile! Read on to learn why cosmetic dentistry is an ideal gift for graduates and the best treatments to give.

Why Give the Gift of Cosmetic Dentistry to Graduates?

While there are many physical qualities that people notice about others during an initial meeting, studies have shown that the smile is the very first one! If you have bright, healthy-looking pearly whites, it makes a positive impression on others, especially employers. It conveys a sense of responsibility, personal care, and confidence. If your graduate is going into a college setting, it can be nerve-wracking having to make all new friends. An upgraded smile can help boost their self-esteem and be more open to freely talking with others. The same applies to beginning a career after college. The graduate in your life will be ready to conquer their new job with a bright, beautiful grin!

What Kinds of Cosmetic Dental Treatments Are Best for Graduates?

Modern cosmetic dentistry offers a range of treatments to drastically improve the appearance of teeth. Out of all of them, the following may particularly help a graduate in the next stage of life:

  • Veneers: Veneers correct various dental imperfections including chipped, cracked, crooked, and stained teeth. Ultra-thin sheaths of porcelain are placed over the front surfaces of the flawed teeth, revealing a perfected smile. Additionally, the upgraded look can be completed in as little as two dental visits.
  • Direct bonding: If there are just one or two minor issues with a smile, cosmetic bonding can be a quick, convenient way to make minor improvements. By molding a tooth-colored composite resin over the teeth and hardening it with a UV light, the teeth can be quickly and easily sculpted into an improved look.
  • Gum recontouring: A “gummy” smile not only makes the mouth appear disproportional, but it can make a person appear childlike. By using a specialized soft tissue laser, a dentist can carefully recontour the gum line, making it seamless and beautifully aligned.
  • Professional teeth whitening: A whiter smile can make an instant difference in how one appears! Professional whitening treatment can brighten dull or stained teeth up to eight shades in a short amount of time. For convenience, there are in-office and at-home treatments so your graduate can choose what works best for them.
