What is a smile makeover?
When multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures are used together for customized results – for example, tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, and porcelain crowns — this is known as a smile makeover. Exceptional Dentistry offers many excellent cosmetic dentistry procedures to give you the brighter, straighter smile you have always wanted.
The combined procedures of a smile makeover can whiten, brighten and straighten teeth and correct dental issues to restore your smile’s natural beauty.
Who is a good candidate for a smile makeover?
Any individual unhappy with the appearance of their smile is a good candidate for a smile makeover. In some cases, certain dental health issues, such as cavities or periodontal disease, must be corrected before cosmetic procedures can begin.
What cosmetic dental issues can be corrected with a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is the perfect option when several dental issues are threatening the health and beauty of your smile. Teeth that are crooked, gapped, crowded, stained or chipped can benefit from the latest smile makeover techniques. Missing teeth can be replaced and teeth that are stained or discolored can be whitened and brightened. In just a few short visits, you can look terrific and feel ready to take on the world with your beautiful new smile.
What cosmetic dentistry procedures may be used in a smile makeover?
The procedures that will work best to achieve your goals are unique to your dental issues. After a thorough examination, Dr. Ted Murray or Dr. Berning will explain your proposed treatment plan. In general, procedures that may be used include:
- Tooth whitening — a popular and relatively inexpensive option offering dramatic results
- White fillings — essential to replace unsightly metal fillings that ruin a beautiful smile
- Invisalign or porcelain veneers — to straighten teeth
- Dental implants — to replace missing teeth and serve as anchors for bridges or partials
- Porcelain inlays or onlays and porcelain crowns — to provide new surfaces for damaged or decayed teeth
- Laser gum recontouring – to reduce excessive gum tissue, commonly called a "gummy"smile
