A smile makeover can improve the appearance of your smile and can help fix a wide variety of imperfections. The dentist outlines a treatment plan to address the dental problems. This plan may include any of the following procedures:
Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. Getting veneers usually requires two visits. During your first visit, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the teeth so the veneers will fit properly. Molds or impressions are taken, which the dental lab will use to create your veneers. During your next visit, the veneers are bonded to your teeth.
Dental bonding is a cosmetic dental procedure that can improve your smile by making your teeth look whiter and straighter. If your teeth are chipped, have small holes in them, or are unevenly shaped, dental bonding can correct these issues.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is bonded to a tooth. It is custom-made from ceramic, porcelain, resin, or high-quality dental porcelain.
A dental bridge is a restoration that includes a false tooth and two dental crowns on either side. The bridge fills the gap in your smile with a natural-looking restoration. Unlike dentures, a dental bridge is permanently bonded to your remaining teeth.
Dental Implants are another popular option for patients who want to restore their smile and regain the full function of their bite. While dental bridges do look and function like natural teeth, they are only attached to adjacent teeth. This is why dental implants are recommended for patients.
Dental implants give patients more security and stability than dental bridges. Implants are anchored in the jawbone, so they won’t slip or move over time.
Teeth whitening is one of the most effective and least invasive cosmetic dental treatments. It is a quick procedure that can improve the appearance of your smile in as little as one treatment.
