The Best Look for Summer is a Beautiful Smile!

Summer fun is here, and everyone wants to look their very best for summer social activities like family reunions, pool parties, and neighborhood barbecues. And whether it’s poolside selfies or family photos at the lake, pictures are a big part of summer. Some people avoid photos due to concerns about appearance, particularly if they’re self-conscious about their smile. But a confident smile is a great accessory for any summer fun, and a Hicksville cosmetic dentistry practice can help anyone achieve a beautiful smile that will last. Here are some of the many ways that cosmetic dentistry can help repair and brighten smiles.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments can brighten teeth, erase stains, and improve appearance. When performed by a skilled cosmetic dentistry practice in Hicksville, professional whitening treatments can erase or lighten discoloration and stains from coffee, tea, wine, or tobacco use that tend to make teeth more yellow in tone over time.

Some people who have tried over-the-counter whitening treatments find that they can cause tooth sensitivity, and others find that these store-bought whitening kits don’t produce professional-looking results.

Professional whitening treatments produce brighter, faster results than over-the-counter whitening kits, and can help reduce any discomfort or sensitivity from the whitening process.


People who are self-conscious about their smile due to missing teeth may find that dentures are just what they need to feel confident again at social events and even family gatherings. Dentures are synthetic removable teeth created to replace missing natural teeth. Dentures can help fill out facial features, creating fullness in cheeks and jawline, and can help patients speak and eat more easily.

Dentures are tailored to an individual patient’s needs, and can be created to replace either a few missing teeth, or to replace all missing teeth, gums, and surrounding tissue. A Hicksville dentist can help people who are missing teeth by recommending either full-plate or partial dentures, depending on a patient’s needs.

A restored smile can boost self-confidence and can even help people look younger. A dentist can help patients decide whether dentures are the right solution for them.

Emergency Dentistry

If teeth are cracked or broken, or a cavity is causing discomfort, swelling, or pain, it may be hard to speak, eat, or sleep comfortably. These types of urgent dental issues should be addressed right away by an emergency dentist in Hicksville, both to ease pain and to prevent complications from untreated teeth.

Before traveling for summer vacations, reunions, sporting events, or concerts, it’s important to make sure that dental issues such as infections, cavities, or gum disease are addressed and repaired. Finding an emergency dentist in another city or country who will work with a particular type of dental insurance or who will continue to be available for follow-up visits may be difficult. Consulting an emergency dentist in Hicksville prior to traveling will ensure that dental problems don’t escalate when a patient is far from home.

Relaxing into summer means enjoying a healthy, beautiful smile. Contact a dentist in Hicksville to help improve smiles and boost self-confidence.
