A smile makeover is a personalized treatment meant to restore the appearance of your smile. It can include any combination of treatments, such as teeth whitening, dental bonding, dental veneers, and/or dental crowns. This treatment is completely customized to each patient and can include one or more of these cosmetic dental treatments to achieve optimal results.
Your dentist will perform an in-depth examination to make sure that there are no underlying issues that require treatment prior to beginning the cosmetic procedure. Additionally, your dentist will discuss your cosmetic goals with you to make sure that you are on the same page.
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They are custom-made so that they will fit your teeth perfectly.
Veneers are used to correct a variety of minor cosmetic flaws. They can fix teeth that are discolored, chipped, or cracked. They are also used to straighten teeth that are crooked or unevenly spaced.
Porcelain dental crowns can be used to cover teeth with cracks, chips, and discoloration, or to cover teeth with gaps between them. They can also be used to cover teeth that are misshapen. With dental crowns, patients are able to receive natural-looking, beautiful teeth.
Composite fillings are tooth-colored, so patients do not have to worry about the fillings standing out. At your cosmetic dentistry appointment, we will carefully examine the affected teeth and prepare the teeth for dental fillings or restorations. Next, we will carefully apply the filling material.
Dental bonding is a quick and non-invasive way to improve the appearance of your smile. When performed by an experienced dentist, dental bonding can last for several years.
Dental bonding involves the application of tooth-colored dental resin. This resin is then carefully sculpted and shaped to blend in with your natural teeth. After shaping the resin, your dentist will apply the resin to your teeth. A special light will then be used to harden the resin, after which it will officially be bonded to your teeth. Your dentist will then remove any remaining traces of the resin, leaving you with a beautifully enhanced smile.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry procedures performed today. It is one of the easiest ways to improve the appearance of your smile.
