A smile makeover is a customized series of cosmetic procedures that transforms the aesthetics and function of your smile. Your smile makeover depends on your unique goals and needs. We believe that each smile makeover is unique because each smile is unique.
Teeth whitening is a common cosmetic procedure that removes stains and discoloration from your teeth. Talk with your dentist about different options, including professional-grade whitening options and at-home whitening gel that you can use at home.
For In-office whitening procedures, the dentist uses special whitening solutions applied directly to your teeth. A protective barrier is placed over your gums and soft tissues to protect them from the solution.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front of your teeth. Veneers can cover cosmetic imperfections, including chips, cracks, discoloration, and gaps. Veneers can also mask misalignment and slight crowding.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which tooth-colored composite material is applied to a tooth in order to improve its appearance.
There are both aesthetic and restorative benefits to dental bonding.
Aesthetically, dental bonding can be used to correct the appearance of a tooth that is chipped, cracked, discolored, or misshaped.
When used to restore a tooth, dental bonding is often performed following a cavity or to repair a tooth that has undergone a root canal.
Gum reshaping or tissue sculpting—also called crown lengthening—is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes the gum line. During the procedure, the excess gum tissue is removed, and uneven gum lines are reshaped. After the gums are reshaped, our dentist will take impressions of your mouth so the gums can be reshaped. They will create a gum line that is even, covers more of the tooth structure, and is pleasing to the eye.
This procedure, along with tooth restoration procedures, such as dental bonding or porcelain veneers, can dramatically improve your appearance.
Porcelain dental crowns help restore damaged teeth. They can be used for cosmetic reasons, such as to cover a stained tooth that whitening procedures can't fix. Dental crowns can also be used for restorative purposes, such as to cover a dental implant.
Dental implants are top-of-the-line tooth replacement options. Not only do they look and function like natural teeth, but they also help preserve the jawbone's structure and density.
An implant is a small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone. Titanium is biocompatible, so it won't trigger an immune response in the body. Dental implants can integrate with the jawbone to provide a sturdy anchor for artificial teeth. A dental implant can be used to help anchor a bridge, crown, or denture in place.
