A smile makeover can include a professional teeth whitening treatment. This can give patients a whiter, brighter smile and remove some surface stains and discolorations.
However, teeth whitening is not a permanent solution. The shade of the natural teeth can be darkened by foods, drinks, and smoking habits – and in some cases, the shade of the teeth whitened with bleaching techniques can fade over time. This makes it important to have professional maintenance treatments to keep teeth at their brightest color. In addition, these touch-ups can help prolong the results of the original in-office whitening session. Over time, patients with healthy teeth and gums should be able to keep their smiles whiter for longer with proper at-home care and professional cleanings.
There are many types of smile makeovers, including porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells that are custom-made to bond to the front surface of your teeth. When in place, they will conceal all of the imperfections on your teeth and leave you with a brand-new look!
If your teeth are misaligned, gapped, or crowded, veneers can instantly correct these issues to give you a perfect new smile. They can also help to fix the appearance of teeth that are chipped, cracked, stained, or misshapen.
Bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to the surface of the teeth to hide cosmetic imperfections, close gaps between teeth, or correct minor chips in the tooth enamel. The resin material is molded onto the teeth and hardened with high-intensity light. The procedure is non-invasive, with no recovery time necessary, and can be completed in just one visit to the dentist’s office. It is an affordable solution for hiding minor cosmetic flaws and improving the overall appearance of the smile. However, the material is not as strong as natural tooth enamel and can be damaged with excessive pressure over time. It is also not suitable for patients whose teeth are severely discolored or have large gaps between them.
