With today’s advances in cosmetic dentistry, having a beautiful smile is easier than ever. A smile makeover is a combination of different cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments expertly combined by your cosmetic dentist with the end goal of making your smile look its best.
Your smile makeover will be tailored to fit your needs, but some of the most common procedures utilized in treatment are the following:
- Teeth whitening is available to brighten yellow, dulled or stained teeth. In as little as one appointment, teeth whitening can lighten your teeth up to 10 shades.
- Porcelain veneers are one of the most versatile treatment options for smile enhancement. With this treatment, thin shells of special dental porcelain are fixed to the front portions of your teeth. Veneers can conceal chipped and cracked teeth, major dental stains, and uneven or gapped teeth.
- Dental bonding is another treatment for hiding and stains and masking chips and cracks. Bonding involves the use of resin composite filling which is molded directly to your teeth to fill in chips and cracks while contouring the overall shape of your teeth.
- If you are missing teeth, your cosmetic dentist may recommend dental implants to restore the look and feel of your natural teeth. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are embedded in the jawbone and gums allowing for a secure hold of restorations such as crowns.
- Another option for missing teeth is a dental bridge. A bridge will secure itself around teeth adjacent to the tooth gap to restore appearance and bite functionality.
- Gum contouring and gum grafting is performed to correct an uneven or low gum line, or gum recession.
- Invisible braces utilize custom-fitted clear plastic aligner trays to gradually realign your teeth.
Each smile makeover is tailored to the unique needs of the patient. By expertly combining the best of cosmetic and restorative dentistry, your cosmetic dentist can develop a single, comprehensive treatment plan to address all your needs and concerns. With a smile makeover, dazzling beautiful teeth are within your reach.
