• Teeth whitening
• Porcelain veneers
• Dental bonding
Whether your concerns involved cracked, pitted, misshapen, or discolored teeth, or even require restorations or replacements for missing teeth, the elements of your smile makeover will address your individual goals and needs.
To determine what procedures are best to include in your smile makeover, you’ll speak to your cosmetic dentist about your concerns and what you’d like your teeth to look like after the work is completed. From this consultation, you and your dentist will determine what approach to take to give you your perfect smile.
How a Smile Makeover Can Help
Common problems and concerns addressed in a smile makeover can include:
• Cracked, pitted or chipped teeth
• Minor misalignment
• Missing teeth
• Gaps between teeth
• Asymmetrical or misshapen teeth
You might be concerned about one or several of these issues and all of them can be addressed with a smile makeover.
For damage to the tooth surfaces, crowns or dental veneers are a good solution. Discoloration can usually be addressed with teeth whitening. Misshapen teeth, or teeth that have been severely chipped or are asymmetrical, can be addressed with dental bonding. A veneer can also work well to disguise slight misalignment or minor gaps. For missing teeth, you might choose a bridge or dental implants to fill the spaces in your smile.
