Addressing Tooth Loss As Part Of A Smile Makeover

At our Katy, TX dental practice, we understand that many people come in for treatment because they no longer feel good about the way they look when they smile. If your goal is to see cosmetic improvements through treatment, we have many different approaches we can use to help you. With that said, restorative dental work can be important for helping you reach your esthetic goals, particularly if you have lost teeth. We rely on dental implant-held prosthetic appliances to help a person feel better about the appearance of their restored smile, while also making it easier for them to bite and chew without discomfort. Once this work is completed, we can focus on addressing exclusively cosmetic concerns.

The Right Approach To Smile Care Can Benefit Your Appearance, And Your Oral Health

Your smile makeover may call for a series of treatments, some of which can be primarily focused on improving your dental health. If this is the case, we will begin your path to a better smile by working with you so you understand what issues you face. Our goal is to have all of your needs addressed with the most conservative treatment approach possible. This means saving more of your healthy tooth structure, and keeping your treatment period as short as possible.

We Can Help You Regain Your Full Smile With Dental Implants

If you need to replace teeth that have been lost, we can recommend work with dental implants to help. Implants act like artificial roots. They are placed directly in your jawbone, and anchor artificial teeth so that they stay stable. Your implants can keep lifelike restorations comfortable and supportive, while also helping you stabilize neighboring teeth. They also stimulate your jawbone – this imitates the stimulation from your regular teeth roots, and it prevents issues with jawbone deterioration.

Planning Restorative And Cosmetic Work To Improve Your Appearance

Once your smile is complete once again, we can discuss treatments for your natural teeth. If you have problems with decay, or if your teeth are not in shape to provide bite support, we can recommend dental crowns. Our patients can receive lifelike crowns that offer genuine smile improvements in addition to practical support. For teeth that only have superficial issues, we can place veneers, which only cover the front of your enamel, meaning more of the healthy structure is left in place. This work can lead to improvements by hiding problems with misshapen or damaged teeth, discoloration, and even problems with spacing!
