When you have several issues with your smile’s appearance, beyond teeth stains, then you may benefit from a makeover. This could even include smiles that have damaged, decay, or missing teeth. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about how we complete a smile makeover for our patients.
Starting Your Makeover
To begin, our team wants to talk to you about your smile, and the concerns you have that you want to see addressed. Next, we will carefully and thoroughly examine your smile with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, so our team can assess the cause of these cosmetic concerns, and to identify their severity. Our team then creates a treatment plan to correct these concerns, combining multiple cosmetic treatments and in some cases, lifelike dental restorations and prosthetics. Each smile is different, which is why each smile makeover is a unique combination of treatment options, many of which are customized for your smile.
What Cosmetic Procedures Do We Include?
Our team obviously offers professional teeth whitening, giving you a smile with much brighter results than store bought systems can offer. But we also have bonding and contouring to correct multiple issues with the shape of the teeth, and to repair minor damage, in a single visit. The same material used in our bonding procedure is used in our tooth-colored dental fillings. If you have poor symmetry in your gum or excess gum tissue on display, we could trim and reshape the gum line using laser dentistry. We also have porcelain veneers, very thin shells of porcelain that we can use to create a restoration that covers the front and sides of the teeth. These alone can often offer a makeover for your smile. If you have dental misalignment, then our team could employ clear Invisalign® aligners to shift the position of your teeth and offer a straighter and more attractive smile, often in as little as a year.
Restorations and Prosthetics
If teeth are damaged or severely decayed or infected, then we could employ lifelike restorations to repair them, so you enjoy better oral health, improved bite function, and of course, an improved appearance too. We have natural looking dental fillings and crowns, and our team can also offer replacement teeth that blend with your smile, such as bridges and dentures, or even individual dental implants or implant-secured bridges and dentures.
If you have any questions about how our team can treat multiple concerns with your smile, then contact our team today to get started on your own personalized smile makeover.
