A smile makeover helps transform your smile’s appearance. To address multiple concerns with the beauty of your smile, we will use a combination of cosmetic, restorative, and even prosthetic dental treatments. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about our smile makeover for our patients.
First, we want to talk to you about your smile and the cosmetic concerns you would like to see corrected. We then use digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to obtain a detailed and accurate diagnosis, so we can assess the cause and extent of these cosmetic issues. From there, we will create a smile makeover treatment plan, one that employs multiple procedures to improve not only the appearance of your smile, but your overall oral health and function too.
Cosmetic and General Treatments
If you have stained teeth, we can brighten teeth by multiple shades with professional teeth whitening, providing custom-made trays and a powerful bleaching gel to get teeth eight shades brighter in some cases. If you have concerns with the shape of the teeth or with gaps between them, or even with minor damage, we could offer repair in one visit with dental bonding and contouring. Bonding uses the same composite resin we employ in our tooth-colored fillings. Speaking of, we can also treat tooth decay with our lifelike fillings, and repair major damage with a dental crown, again designed to blend with the smile.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that cover the front and sides of the teeth, instantly transforming them. We could discuss clear aligners to correct uneven teeth too! With our custom oral appliances, we could provide a noninvasive solution for issues that threaten smile health and beauty, like TMJ disorder or bruxism (chronic teeth grinding).
Restorative and Prosthetic Options
As we touched on above, we can provide fillings and crowns to address tooth decay and infection, repairing and restoring teeth to optimal health, function, and beauty. But what if you’re missing teeth? Again, we take a custom approach when creating a dental prosthetic. As part of your smile makeover, we could address minor tooth loss with a bridge, complicated cases with a partial, or total tooth loss with a complete set of dentures. These can be removed, or fixed in place with dental implants.
If you have any questions about smile makeovers, or about our individual treatment options, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you enjoy optimal oral health, and a smile that inspires confidence.
