When you have multiple issues with the appearance and health of your smile, you may need more than one treatment. With a smile makeover, we combine multiple cosmetic and restorative treatments, and even dental prosthetics, to transform your appearance. In today’s blog, your Katy, TX, dentist talks about smile makeovers.
When You Need a Smile Makeover
If you have multiple concerns with your smile, too many to be treated with a single procedure, then you may need a smile makeover. Our team will start with an initial consultation, during which we talk to you about your smile and the concerns you would like us to address. We then conduct a detailed examination with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, so we can offer a diagnosis with precision and accuracy. With this information, we can then create a custom treatment plan that combines multiple procedures to makeover your smile. Even if you assume your smile is too far gone, we can offer an optimal transformation!
Planning the Process
Each smile is different, so every treatment plan is unique too. We want the results to ensure your smile is properly balanced and healthy, and functions properly, so you can smile with confidence and enjoy your favorite meals again.
Common Treatment Options
For the restorative concerns, we could treat tooth decay and infection with lifelike composite resin fillings and custom dental crowns, made from materials we can shade to blend with the smile. Root canal therapy and remove infected tissues, and our team can extract teeth that are severely damaged or infected. For the gaps from missing or extracted teeth, we could discuss dental implants, which replace individual missing teeth or several by supporting a bridge or denture. These will last far longer than traditional removable dentures or crown-secured bridges, offering decades of quality tooth replacement.
For the cosmetic issues, we could use bonding and contouring to reshape teeth and address minor concerns in one visit. Our veneers, which cover the font and side of the teeth, can alone makeover a smile in some cases. We could also address misalignment with clear Invisalign® aligners. If you have general concerns like TMD or bruxism (teeth grinding), we could offer relief with a custom oral appliance, which fits comfortably and is easy to use and clean.
If you have any questions about how we approach your smile makeover, then contact our team today to learn more. We want to help you enjoy optimal oral health and a beautiful smile!
