A smile makeover is a general term used to describe a combination of cosmetic dental treatments performed to enhance the appearance of your smile. In general, a smile makeover involves the correction of multiple cosmetic flaws on the patient’s teeth. Unlike certain cosmetic dentistry procedures, smile makeovers can address a wide range of issues at once.
If you’re dealing with multiple imperfections in your smile, you may be a better candidate for a smile makeover. For example, if you have teeth that are crooked, gapped, and stained, you could benefit from a smile makeover.
Based on your needs, we may recommend one or more procedures from the following:
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving the appearance of cracked, chipped, slightly misaligned, or discolored teeth. Because they are so thin, they require less preparation of your natural teeth, and the process can be completed in as little as two appointments.
Each veneer is custom-made from impressions of your teeth, and they can be designed to perfectly match your surrounding teeth. In addition to helping you achieve the smile of your dreams, porcelain veneers can correct minor bite issues as well.
Cosmetic bonding and tooth-colored fillings are both effective procedures for repairing minor dental imperfections and damage. Both of these treatments involve applying a tooth-colored composite resin material to the tooth. Cosmetic bonding can be used to repair chips, cracks, cavities, and teeth that are crooked. It can also be used to repair minor tooth decay. Tooth-colored fillings can be used to repair cavities, teeth that have been chipped or cracked, and teeth that are discolored. These cosmetic treatments are also both excellent options for improving the appearance of teeth.
Full-arch dental restoration with dental implants is one of the most natural-looking and restorative smile makeover procedures available. Dental implants are titanium posts that replace lost tooth roots. The dental implant restoration process takes several months to complete, but the end result is a beautiful, functional smile.
Dental crowns can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, or discolored. They also help support teeth that are weak or suffering from decay. When a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, a dental crown may be the only way to save that tooth.
There are several different types of dental crowns available. Dental crowns are made of porcelain, resin, ceramic, or metal, and each type of crown has its own advantages and disadvantages. A tooth that needs a dental crown does not have to be pulled and replaced with a dental implant. Instead, a dental crown can be placed over the tooth to help restore its appearance and function.
