Improve Your Smile
Improving Your Smile with a Makeover
A dazzling smile is many people’s goal, and getting a smile makeover through a cosmetic dentist is the way to get one.
You might need just one cosmetic dental procedure to achieve your best smile, or you may need multiple procedures to get the look you’d like.
Here are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed during smile makeovers.
Gaps, chips, or cracks in your teeth can make you feel self-conscious. Bonding fills spaces and gaps, and can even alter your tooth color if desired. Composite resin material is placed directly on the tooth and polished to look natural and appealing. The procedure is painless and can be completed in one sitting.
The fastest and most dramatic way to brighten your smile is through professional teeth whitening. A stronger whitening solution is used that is available in over-the-counter products, and often a special light enhances the process. In as little as an hour, your smile can go from dull to brilliant.
A large number of people are missing one or more natural teeth. Preferred by many patients over dentures or bridges, dental implants provide a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. A titanium rod is surgically inserted into the jaw so that it fuses to the bone during healing, and an artificial tooth is placed on top to complete the restoration. Your smile is fully functional, comfortable, and attractive with implants.
Dental veneers are very thin shells, usually made of porcelain, that are securely adhered to the fronts of your teeth to alter the shape, color, or various flaws. They are customized to every patient, and a very small amount of your tooth enamel is removed during the application process. Veneers are a permanent improvement to your smile, and must be replaced if they are ever damaged.
With age and wear, it becomes more and more likely that you might eventually crack, chip, or lose a tooth. Crowns cover damaged teeth to restore their function and appearance. That way you no longer have an unsightly or uncomfortable tooth in your smile.
