A complete smile makeover is the ultimate way to improve the look of your entire smile. Perhaps you’ve tried over-the-counter teeth whitening, and you opt for white fillings and crowns as old dental work needs replacement. A smile makeover takes cosmetic dentistry to a whole new level. Instead of focusing only on the color of your teeth, we will address the color, shape, size, texture, and alignment of each tooth in your smile zone. By combining multiple cosmetic treatments, we will transform the overall appearance of your smile, including the gum line, lip line, and the balance of your smile with other facial features. If you’re ready to love your smile and enjoy greater self-confidence in all aspects of your life, a smile makeover is just what you need.
COSMETIC DENTISTRY TREATMENTS
For your custom smile makeover, the dentist may combine any of these cosmetic and restorative treatments:
- Composite Fillings
- Crowns and Bridges
- Dental Bonding
- Dental Implants
- Invisalign® Clear, Removable Orthodontics
- Porcelain Fillings
- Porcelain Veneers
- Same-Day Porcelain Crowns
- Teeth Whitening
The most popular and requested cosmetic dental procedure across the globe is professional teeth whitening, because it can effectively enhance the overall appearance of a smile. The simple procedure produces drastic results. We use a prescription-strength whitening agent for deep bleaching, then send you home with professional trays and whitening gel to maintain the brilliant results. Professional teeth whitening can lighten tooth enamel by four to ten shades, in most cases.
Invisalign is an alternative orthodontic treatment. Instead of the traditional metal wires and brackets, Invisalign relies on soft, clear plastic aligners to reposition teeth. The removable aligners are easy to clean and care for, and comfortable to wear. Each aligner is custom designed for your bite, to gradually shift misaligned teeth to their ideal position. Though Invisalign isn’t the best treatment for all cases, it is often a practical and preferred option for teenagers and adults who want to discreetly perfect their smile.
PORCELAIN VENEERS, WHITE CROWNS, FILLINGS, & BONDING
Porcelain veneers have become an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment. They’re applied in just two dental visits and will dramatically change the appearance of a smile. The handmade, thin porcelain shells will be permanently bonded the front surface of the teeth that show in your smile. Each shell will be uniquely designed so that the color, shape, size, and position ideally complements the overall look of your smile. If veneers aren’t the right option for you, we may suggest white crowns, fillings, or bonding to correct your smile’s flaws. These restorations are durable and provide lasting results.
Dental implants are the only prosthetic that replaces a tooth’s root and crown. A small, screw-like device is surgically imbedded into healthy jawbone tissue, and bone naturally fuses to it. After about six months, implants can be topped with a single crown or a bridge or denture. Implants not only secure prosthetics from the foundation up, but they also stimulate the jawbone so that it will not degenerate over time.
We also offer bridges, partials, and full dentures to replace missing teeth. If you have an entire row of teeth missing, such as your upper or lower arch, we recommend full dentures. Partials replace multiple teeth on an arch by filling in spaces, much like a jigsaw puzzle fits together. Bridges, also called crowns and bridges, can replace one lost tooth or a few teeth in a row. All these prosthetics can be secured to dental implants or anchored to surrounding, healthy teeth.
