What does a smile makeover procedure include?
Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front of the teeth. They are custom-made for each patient to look like natural teeth and resist staining. Veneers help patients achieve a dramatic smile makeover because they conceal flaws in the teeth.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. Over time, your bone will fuse around the implant, and the posts serve as both aesthetic and functional replacements for missing tooth roots.
Dental implants are a good option for replacing your teeth because they:
- Restore your ability to speak, chew, and digest food
- Improve your appearance
- Help prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position
A dental crown is used to cap a tooth to protect or strengthen it. A crown is also often used to cover teeth that are misshapen, discolored, or misplaced. Dental bridges replace the missing tooth and bridge the gap.
Teeth whitening is a great solution for people who have teeth that are discolored and yellowed.
In a dental bonding procedure, our dentist will apply a tooth-colored resin material that matches the color of your teeth. After it is applied, the bonding material is shaped and hardened with a dental curing light. Once the material has hardened, it is smoothed and polished to blend in and appear natural.
Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure that involves sculpting the gum line to create the appearance of longer, symmetrical teeth. Gum contouring also corrects the appearance of a “gummy smile” or a smile that shows too much gum.
Invisalign® clear braces are a popular choice for patients who are looking to straighten their teeth without brackets and wires. They consist of a series of clear, removable aligners that have been custom-made for your smile.
