A smile makeover can boost your self-esteem, improve your ability to chew, and may eliminate any embarrassing slips you experience when speaking. You will no longer feel the need to hide teeth that are stained, chipped, misshapen, crooked, or missing when you seek care from your cosmetic dentist.
There are a variety of treatments that will correct your dental issues and fit your budget and/or timeline to achieve your goals:
Teeth whitening is often all that is needed to remove the appearance of stubborn stains that a standard hygiene visit can’t achieve. A dull and drab smile can spoil your appearance, but teeth whitening is probably the most economical method of cosmetic enhancement available.
Porcelain veneers provide a solution to a multitude of dental maladies:
Deep, intrinsic stain that can’t be eliminated can be made to disappear when impacted teeth are covered with porcelain veneers. These wafer thin coverings are made to match your biological teeth in shape, size, and shade. With standard veneers, a very thin layer of enamel is removed before the veneers are permanently cemented in place. If Lumineers are available and selected, your dentist will not have to remove the dental enamel, and they can be removed and the process reversed, if desired.
Veneers are also used to mask uneven, misshapen, or chipped teeth. Gaps between teeth can disappear, and the appearance of a receding gum line can be improved. Veneers can be used on one or several teeth.
When decay appears in your smile line you no longer have to resort to dental amalgam to repair the tooth. Many dentists will remove those old silver fillings and replace them with a tooth colored material, composite resin. The method of filling a tooth with composite is quite different making the result much more aesthetically pleasing.
Crooked teeth should be improved for more than just appearance. Straighter teeth are easier to maintain keeping plaque from building. Crooked teeth provide areas for bacteria to grow. Having teeth straightened as a teen or an adult can be intimidating if bands and brackets are used. Thankfully, Invisalign clear aligners provide a means to undergo orthodontics with comfort and ease.
