4 Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures to Treat Yourself to This Holiday

TeamCosmetic Dentistry

During the holiday season, it’s common to spend time and money on people other than yourself. It’s a wonderful thing to give to others, but don’t forget yourself! The holidays are a great time to treat yourself and start the New Year off with a fresh look. At Ascent Dental Care, we offer several cosmetic dentistry services to boost and enhance your smile. Here are some of the treatments to choose from this season.


Wish your teeth were straighter? Orthodontics remains one of our most popular services for a reason. A straight smile can enhance your smile and your confidence. The best part is that you don’t need to plan on several years with traditional braces if you don’t want to. Dr. Coughlin has decades of experience in comprehensive orthodontic care. Some of the orthodontic services we offer include Invisalign, which provides you with a straight smile without the hassle and obvious aesthetic of metal braces. If you only want to address the front upper and lower teeth, Minor Tooth Movement (MTM) is an excellent alternative to full orthodontics.


If you want to address some aesthetically displeasing conditions on one or several teeth, veneers might be a good choice. Veneers attach and cover to your original tooth, which means you can improve their appearance without replacing the structure. Some aesthetic reasons you might consider veneers for your teeth are conditions like uneven lengths, discoloration, chips, and gaps. Porcelain veneers are the longest-lasting option, but ones made with composite material are also a solid and less expensive option. Each option involves specific care requirements, so make sure to keep that in mind when considering which veneer choice is right for you.

Teeth Whitening

When you want to improve your appearance, teeth whitening is a great place to start. Drinking wine, coffee, and other habits can stain your teeth. In general, teeth lose their brightness over time, which means that most people may be interested in teeth whitening or bleaching at some point. Choose from either in-office or at-home whitening treatments for a brighter, whiter smile this holiday season.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is another form of dentistry that improves the look of a natural tooth in need of some aesthetic enhancements. Bonding involves applying a material to your tooth that matches its color, and this process can be completed in less than an hour. As a treatment, this option is more affordable than others. Bonding improves the appearance of cracks, chips, and even discoloration.

This holiday season, treat yourself with any (or several) of these cosmetic dentistry services at Ascent Dental Care. Start the New Year off with the confidence that a bright, straight smile can give. Request an appointment online or by calling one of our four office locations in Western Massachusetts.
