Are you unhappy with your smile? Do you wish your smile was more aesthetically pleasing or need to restore function to your mouth? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions a smile makeover may be the solution.

What are smile makeovers?

In simple terms, a smile makeover is when you transform the appearance and/or function of your mouth through cosmetic dentistry procedures. The number and type of procedures needed for a full transformation is dependent on the current health of your mouth and the desired outcome. Whether you have missing, crooked or discolored teeth, a smile makeover will boost your confidence and make you want to show off your pearly whites more often.

What procedures are included in a smile makeover?

A smile makeover may consist of one or many dental procedures to achieve the desired results. Below are some of the options available that your dentist may recommend.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a fast, safe, and effective way to enhance the color of your teeth. The procedure can be done in-office with immediate results or at-home with results that progress over time.

Braces and Invisalign

If you have gaping or misaligned teeth, braces and Invisalign can help straighten and tighten your alignment. Braces are the traditional metal brackets while Invisalign uses clear aligners, similar to a retainer. The only downside is these options do take time, but the results will be worth the wait.

Teeth Bonding

If you have chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth bonding can be a viable solution. The dentist will match the color of your teeth to a composite resin and use the material build, fill, or recolor the problem area.

Dental Crowns

While dental crowns are often used to restore function, they are also a good solution for aesthetics as well. Crowns are permanent restorations that are cemented to the existing tooth, surrounding its entire structure.

Dental Veneers

Dental Veneers consist of a thin porcelain or composite that is applied over the current teeth to correct tooth misalignment, cracks, chips, spacing and discoloration. It is one of the most common procedures used among celebrities to achieve the perfect smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are permanent structures inserted into the jawbone used to replace missing teeth. This is among the most durable, permanent tooth replacement solution. It can be used to replace a single tooth or an entire smile with All-on-4 dental implants.
