There are many things we can do to prepare for a date: take a shower—please!—, pick a new piece of clothing, buy some flowers. Getting cosmetic dentistry can also be a way to leave a good impression. From teeth whitening to veneers in Sioux City, you can achieve that easily.  

Here are our professional’s top four picks for cosmetic dentistry before a first date. Having a special occasion could be a great opportunity to get one of the procedures you’ve always wanted and regain your bright smile.  

Teeth Whitening in Sioux City

Best Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Before a Date

Teeth Whitening

Some foods and drinks, like coffee and tea, can stain your teeth over time. That’s where teeth whitening comes in. With the help of a professional, you can dramatically lighten the shade of your teeth, brightening your smile.

Although there are many at-home recipes for teeth whitening, it’s always recommended to seek the advice of a professional, as some methods can damage your teeth's enamel. A professional will lighten your teeth safely, and in under an hour.

Tooth Contouring  

This procedure consists of removing small amounts of enamel to change the shape of your teeth. To do so, your dentist uses a drill or laser.

Enamel is the outer surface of your teeth, that’s protecting the vulnerable inside. Because of that, there’s a limit to how much tooth structure your dentist can remove. If they’re not careful, they risk exposing your tooth to potential damage.

However, cosmetic conturing can be very helpful in fixing unaligned teeth, reducing damage from grinding your teeth, and making it easier to clean the areas between your teeth. Additionally, it can be achieved with a single office visit.  

Dental Bonding  

Dental bonding is a procedure where your dentist uses tooth-colored composite resin to cover up and conceal any cracks, craze lines, or discoloration on your teeth. Additionally, it can be used to change the shape of a tooth to make it longer, or correct any other cosmetic imperfection.

Unlike tooth contouring, dental bonding doesn’t require the removal of tooth enamel. So the treatment is completely reversible.

Dental bondings are durable, lasting from five to seven years without needing to be replaced. Additionally, it’s an easy process that can be done in under 60 minutes.


Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells attached to the surface of your teeth to improve their appearance.  They can be used to fix chipped or cracked teeth, even out asymmetrical teeth, or fix discoloration.

To imitate the natural appearance of your teeth, veneers are colored, depending on the patient. They are made up of porcelain and resin-composite materials, and are permanently bonded to your teeth.  

Veneers are highly durable. Porcelain or composite resin are strong materials that resist stains and damage, and with proper maintenance, they can last up to ten years.

Improve your Smile with Veneers in Sioux City

We often take our teeth for granted until their appearance begins to change. We notice they are not as white as they used to be, or that there seems to be a chip on one of them. Then, you start feeling shy, and less willing to show off your grin.
