A smile makeover has the ability to change your life. Prior to aesthetic improvements, the ability to eat, speak, or smile with self-confidence can be intimidating. But when teeth aren’t stained, chipped, crooked, or missing, life can be good again.
A consultation with your cosmetic dentist can lead to the aesthetic changes to make these life altering improvements.
Stained or Discolored Teeth – There are multiple treatments to consider when teeth are stained. One of the most economical, but effective, options is teeth whitening. Many topical stains are removed during the cleaning provided by your dental hygienist. But for more stubborn stains or teeth discolored due to age, medications taken, or food/beverage consumption, teeth whitening can lighten teeth multiple shades.
Chipped, stained, or malformed teeth – When teeth contain intrinsic stains not treatable with cleaning or whitening; or when one or more teeth are chipped, contain unwanted spaces, or teeth are too long or short … there is a procedure known as dental veneers to correct many dental flaws.
Veneers are most often made from porcelain, which makes them stain resistant. Veneers are very thin shells that are fabricated to be cemented to the front of teeth requiring improvement. The veneers will cover stained or damaged teeth; are permanent; and will actually strengthen treated teeth.
Crooked teeth – Invisalign clear braces provide a means to correct a dental malocclusion. An over bite, under bite or cross bite can be corrected with these virtually invisible braces … they are removable to allow the patient to enjoy the foods they love plus daily flossing and brushing.
Missing teeth – Eating, speaking, and smiling when one or more teeth are missing can be challenging. Dental implants can restore dentition as close as your biological teeth with the aid of dental implants. A dental implant is made from titanium and is placed in gum tissue where tooth loss has occurred. While the implant heals, bone grows to the implant providing a strong base for the restoration that will ultimately be placed where a tooth has been lost.
Broken or decayed teeth – The quickest way to repair these teeth is with CEREC restorations. With the ability to create a dental crown in one day, our cosmetic dentist can protect a cracked or broken tooth or one too decayed to repair with a filling.
Smile enhancements can provide a life changing transformation.
