5 Powerful Smile Enhancements for 2022

Are you looking for a beautiful smile in 2022? These days there are numerous treatment options that will give you a Hollywood smile in no time! Here at Preston Dental Loft, our team offers comprehensive cosmetic dental solutions to fit your smile goals.

Perhaps a smile makeover is at the top of your list, or you’ve been considering dental veneers to enhance your smile. Now is a perfect time to consider a new smile for the new year.

Read on to learn about five ways you can get a stunning smile in 2022.

Teeth Whitening and Brightening

Whitening and brightening your teeth is one of the quickest things you can do to show off a beautiful smile. Bright white teeth give you the confidence needed to face each day with a smile.

People associate white teeth with good overall health. Teeth can become discolored over time by:

  • Drinking coffee or wine
  • Smoking
  • Eating certain foods
  • Taking antibiotics
  • Tooth decay

Why settle for teeth that aren’t as white and bright as they can be? While there are many over-the-counter options for brightening your teeth, professional teeth whitening is more effective, thanks to the professional-grade techniques and materials used.

Over time, teeth naturally discolor. Teeth whitening restores a youthful white appearance. Your teeth may become even whiter than they used to be!

If it’s a special event you’re preparing for, there is no better time than now to get your teeth whitened. Or maybe you just want that confidence to tackle 2022 with renewed energy and confidence.  Preston Dental Loft uses state-of-the-art procedures to give you a memorable, beautiful smile. You’ll be flashing those pearly whites in no time.

Dental Implants

Are you looking for a lifetime tooth replacement? Dental implants look and feel like real teeth. Whether you need one or several, dental implants provide a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Dental implants are medical devices that are used for both cosmetic and practical purposes. At times, they may be necessary to provide support for crowns, bridges, or dentures.

When someone loses a tooth, it can affect their ability to chew and talk. In addition, bone loss may occur, causing the jawbone to shrink. Dental implants help prevent these problems. Dental implants also restore cosmetic appearance, restoring your confidence. Not only do you get your beautiful smile back, but your quality of life is also improved.

Getting a dental implant is a fairly simple procedure. After the titanium implant, which acts as a root, is placed and the healing process is complete, a custom-made tooth is placed in the implant. The new tooth looks and feels just like a natural tooth would.

Many people who have implants say they are more comfortable than dentures. In addition, they’re natural-looking and offer a permanent solution when properly cared for.

Dental Veneers

You know that Hollywood smile, right? How do the rich and famous get those bright white teeth that shine back at you from behind the camera? Those are porcelain dental veneers, and they aren’t just for celebrities.

Anyone can benefit from beautiful dental veneers. Veneers that are custom made just for you can give you a dazzling, memorable smile.

Veneers are thin, porcelain or resin coverings placed over the front of the tooth. They are semi-permanent solutions to teeth that are:

  • Chipped
  • Damaged
  • Discolored
  • Smaller than average
  • Misaligned
  • Pointy
  • Gapped

Some people want veneers simply because they want a permanently white smile.

When done correctly, veneers look like your natural teeth, only better. The veneers are custom-made in a lab to create the best shade for you. Having veneers placed on your teeth is a minimally invasive procedure. Veneers can be completed in as few as two visits. All you have to do to maintain your veneers is practice good dental habits! Contact your Preston Dental Loft team to learn more about the different types of veneers we offer. Your smile will thank you.


Custom dental crowns are caps placed over teeth. Crowns are an ideal solution for placement over cracked, damaged, or broken teeth that cannot be saved with fillings.

Crowns can be used to cover discolored teeth and restore your beautiful smile. Your Preston Dental Loft team carefully selects the right color crown to match your other teeth.

In addition to cosmetic reasons, crowns are used to:

  • Protect a weak or broken tooth
  • Protect a tooth that is cracking around a large filling
  • Protect a tooth that’s undergone a root canal
  • Hold a dental bridge in place

Crowns are made from porcelain to last for many years. With the proper care, they can last for 10 to 15 years.

Having a crown put in place is a straightforward, painless procedure. The dentist “shaves” the existing tooth by about 1.5mm to 2mm to provide room for the new crown. An impression of your tooth is taken and sent to the lab. A temporary crown is placed until your custom crown arrives. Your permanent crown is cemented over your existing tooth, and you’re finished!

Smile Makeover

Why go through life with a smile that doesn’t make you 100 percent happy? For the smile of your dreams, schedule a consultation with the Preston Dental Loft team. We’ll evaluate the smile you have and help you achieve a beautiful smile customized just for you.

What does a smile makeover mean to you? Perhaps it includes an orthodontic alignment service like Invisalign.

Invisalign works for many different cases across different bite types and for crowding and spacing issues. Your Preston Dental Loft team will evaluate your mouth, your bite, your oral anatomy, and what you want to achieve with your smile.
