Are You a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?
Generally, the best candidates for a smile makeover have a strong desire to improve the appearance of their smile, and need multiple treatments to achieve their aesthetic goals. Before cosmetic treatment can be implemented, you will need to make sure your smile is free from issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. One of our doctors can first address any oral health problems through treatments such as tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, and periodontal therapy.
Our technology, experience, and advanced treatments can give you the smile you have always wanted.
Once your smile is healthy, you can begin the makeover process. You will meet with one of our dentists to discuss your unique goals and concerns. Your doctor will also perform a thorough examination of your smile to determine which treatments are best for you.
Commonly Combined Procedures
There are several cosmetic treatments that can be used to brighten and straighten your teeth, and provide an overall improved appearance.
These wafer-thin ceramic shells are one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers are applied to the front surface of the teeth to conceal minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, or discoloration that does not respond to teeth whitening. These restorations are placed over the course of two appointments, and typically require the removal of a very small portion of each treated tooth.
Convenient and simple, our teeth whitening treatments use a safe and effective gel solution that breaks the bond between stains and the enamel. Available in-office and in take-home kits, whitening can lighten the teeth up to seven shades and treatment can be repeated at the discretion of your dentist.
Many patients do not realize that excess gum tissue or an uneven gum line can create an unbalanced or disproportionate smile. Gum contouring, also known as reshaping, can improve symmetry and harmony between the teeth and gums.
Invisalign® uses clear, removable trays to gently realign the teeth over several months. Most patients prefer this discreet alternative to traditional orthodontics.
A dental crown is a type of restoration that restores shape, form, and function of a tooth that has been damaged by decay or trauma. Today's crowns are so lifelike that many patients can benefit from their aesthetic benefits.
