3 Things Your Smile Makeover Might Include

The point of a smile makeover is to optimize every aspect of your smile’s health and appearance. Because everyone’s smile is unique, every smile makeover must therefore be customized to address each patient’s specific needs and preferences. For instance, if your only concern is stained teeth, than your makeover may only require professional teeth-whitening. However, if you also have multiple other issues to correct, then your dentist can design a treatment plan that minimizes the amount of dental work you need while maximizing your makeover’s end results.

Professional Teeth-Whitening

Teeth stains are the most common smile issue, and most cosmetic improvements involve addressing them. That’s why professional teeth-whitening is one of the most frequently recommended cosmetic treatments. Using a safe but highly potent bleaching agent, your dentist can gently and effectively remove the surfaces stains from your teeth and brighten them significantly.

Cosmetic Tooth Bonding

Besides teeth stains, you may also have one or more teeth that exhibit structural issues like worn down surfaces, chipped edges, or more. Rather than placing a dental crown on each tooth, your dentist may suggest restoring their structures with cosmetic tooth bonding. Tooth bonding is the application of highly lifelike resin to the tooth, which your dentist sculpts and polishes to match the tooth’s full, healthy contour without any changes to your tooth’s structure.

Custom-Designed Porcelain Veneers

For patients with several different and/or more stubborn smile blemishes, porcelain veneers are a popular addition to a smile makeover plan. With the goal of achieving optimal cosmetic results with minimal changes to your teeth, veneers can be bonded to the front surfaces of several teeth to completely revamp their appearances. Veneers are most beneficial for patients who exhibit multiple types of blemishes on several different teeth and need to simply their makeovers to reduce changes to their teeth.
