A smile makeover often describes a series of procedures that are tailored to address your smile’s cosmetic concerns in the most conservative and effective way possible. The treatments involved in the plan depend on your specific dental needs and preferences. Therefore, if you have several concerns with your smile’s appearance, then you might automatically believe that your makeover must be a complicated one. However, you may be surprised to learn that your smile makeover could be a single treatment away, especially if all of your smile’s concerns can be addressed with one or more porcelain veneers.
The Smile Makeover Process
Every smile makeover begins with a comprehensive examination with your dentist. The examination will include detailed digital imaging, such as digital X-rays, to accurately gauge the nature of your concerns. Then, your dentist will consult with you to explain why your smile’s appearance is affected and which treatments may be best to address those issues. For instance, if your teeth are stained, then teeth-whitening may be involved. If they are also out of alignment, then you might require orthodontic treatment, as well.
Simplifying the Process with Veneers
The good news about porcelain veneers is that they can address many cosmetic smile issues at once, with minimal permanent alterations to your healthy tooth structure. Veneers are super thin shells of porcelain that are fashioned to closely mimic the size, shape, color, and appearance of your tooth’s front surface. By placing one or more veneers on your teeth, your dentist can correct stains, chips, cracks, spaces, minor alignment issues, and more simultaneously.
