A beautiful smile is something many people desire, but few naturally have. The good news is that smile makeovers exist that can transform your smile without major surgery or lengthy treatments! This cosmetic dentistry solution can whiten, straighten, replace, or enhance the overall look of your teeth. Better yet, though most smile makeover treatments are cosmetic, certain procedures can improve tooth function, too, resulting in a healthier and more attractive smile. What are the most common procedures you can expect from a smile makeover?
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular components of a smile makeover. With in-office and take-home options, this solution can provide dazzling results in as little as one hour. Additionally, your dentist is available to help you choose the best shade of white for your smile and monitor your whitening process for the best results.
Porcelain veneers are another versatile and popular procedure in a smile makeover. These thin shells of porcelain cover over the front surface of your teeth, hiding imperfections like gaps, chips, stains, or improper size. Porcelain veneers can transform the look of teeth, often in just two appointments.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns improve the look and function of a tooth by “capping” it with a custom-made restoration that restores the size, shape, and strength of a damaged tooth. Dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth by attaching a row of dental crowns that span the empty tooth socket.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement if you’re missing one or more teeth. They’re made from titanium posts inserted into the jawbone, then restored with a dental crown or bridge. Dental implants are designed to last for many years, providing function and natural aesthetics.
