Noticeable cosmetic flaws can make you uncomfortable with the way you look. If you have several flaws to worry about, or if flaws are particularly distracting, you may worry that cosmetic improvements will be hard to make. For individuals who have serious issues with their appearance, our Katy, TX dentist’s office can recommend a smile makeover. The steps in a smile makeover vary from patient to patient, because our goal is to provide a personalized approach to this service. With that said, many people who expect they will have to go through several procedures to see results can be impressed at just how much improvement they can see thanks to just one cosmetic dental procedure!
How Many Procedures Will Your Smile Makeover Require?
Sometimes, it can be beneficial to work out a plan that consists of multiple cosmetic procedures. For example, you can make your smile more symmetrical and lengthen teeth with a gum contouring procedure, then take on discoloration with a teeth whitening treatment. However, there are cases where one procedure can help an individual address the different concerns they currently have with their appearance. If your teeth look unhealthy because of wear and tear, alignment issues, and discoloration, your dentist may be able to address all of these problems by placing custom porcelain veneers.
Common Problems That Hurt The Quality Of A Person’s Smile
Cosmetic flaws can develop over time due to poor oral health habits, physical trauma, or thanks to general wear and tear. People with this issues can be affected by the following:
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Noticeable teeth stains
- Teeth that seem flattened or otherwise misshapen
- Teeth that appear dull because of gradual enamel erosion
Of course, there are also cases where cosmetic work can be beneficial for solving naturally occurring problems. One notable example is poor dental alignment. If your teeth are crooked, your dentist may suggest using Invisalign as part of your smile makeover. However, in some cases it is possible to hide gaps and overlaps with veneers, or through bonding and contouring.
Some Smile Flaws Are Created By Unresolved Oral Health Issues
If your smile is affected by serious dental damage, or even missing teeth, restorative dental work may need to occur as part of your smile makeover. For significant tooth trauma, we can provide dental crowns to provide both functional and cosmetic improvements. If you have missing teeth, we can discuss using dental implants to hold lifelike restorations.
