However, your teeth may need a makeover just as badly if they’ve become stained, chipped, or crooked after weeks of staying at home. With summer right around the corner, now is a great time to make sure your smile is ready to ease back into a social lifestyle. Here are a few ways your Fort Worth cosmetic dentist can help beautify your smile as you come out of quarantine.

Teeth Whitening

Have you been mindlessly munching or stress-eating during the COVID-19 pandemic? Did you put off brushing or flossing your teeth one too many times? If so, you may find that your teeth have taken on a dirty hue over the past several months.

Thankfully, a professional teeth whitening treatment from your Fort Worth dentist can restore your bright smile! This quick and affordable service utilizes a powerful whitening agent that can seep deep into your enamel and clear away discoloration. Whether you choose an in-office treatment or an at-home kit from your dentist, you’ll receive safe, comfortable, and dramatic results in no time!

Porcelain Veneers

Once used primarily for celebrities, porcelain veneers can now help anyone attain a flawless smile. These ultra-thin shells of beautiful dental porcelain can be used to conceal a variety of cosmetic issues at once, like:

  • Stubborn enamel stains that can’t be lifted with teeth whitening.
  • Chipped, cracked, or otherwise minimally but noticeably damaged teeth.
  • Teeth that are slightly gapped, misaligned, or misshapen.

Whether you want to redesign the appearance of one tooth or many, these durable, stain-resistance, and lifelike veneers can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.


After spending so much extra time at home during quarantine, you may have noticed that your teeth have shifted out of place. If you want a straighter smile without a mouth full of metal wires and brackets interrupting your busy lifestyle, Invisalign clear braces may be perfect for you.

This modern orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear, plastic aligners to gently shift your teeth into place. They’re removable and nearly invisible, which means you can continue to confidently enjoy all of your favorite foods and activities.

While it may still take quite some time until it’s safe enough to return to our “normal” social lives, you can start preparing now! A quick trip to your Fort Worth cosmetic dentist can help you feel ready to greet life after quarantine with a sunny, beautiful smile.
