If you cover up your smile because you are embarrassed by your teeth, a smile makeover may be just what the dentist ordered. A smile makeover is needed when you have one or more areas of your mouth that needs to be addressed. The exact dental treatments included in a smile makeover depend on your existing dental condition and your smile goals. So while each smile makeover is customized by our skilled team of dentists, we can provide some general information about the most common cosmetic dental treatments involved in smile makeovers.
For patients with healthy, straight teeth, often the only thing needed to improve your smile is professional teeth whitening. Performing teeth whitening is the fastest, least expensive, and most conservative way to improve a smile. A whiter smile can make you look younger and smile with greater confidence. We can perform the teeth whitening procedure for you with our in-office treatment at Premier Dental of Oakwood, or you can perform and maintain it at home with our custom take-home kits. Both produce noticeable results!
Veneers can cover a wide range of cosmetic smile problems. A porcelain veneer covers the visible surface of a tooth. We can use veneers to change the color, shape, size and overall appearance of a tooth. In general, we perform porcelain veneers in groups of at least six or eight teeth in a smile makeover. With veneers, we can recreate the smile to correct minor crowding or small gaps, discolorations or abnormalities in shape, etc… Veneers require the removal of some tooth structure to provide space for the porcelain material, so dental veneers are usually an irreversible procedure.
A crown differs from a veneer in that it covers the entire exposed portion of a tooth instead of just the visible surfaces. Dental Crowns are not just for cosmetic purposes. They can rebuild the function of a tooth, change its bite, and improve its appearance. We can make crowns from the same beautiful porcelain as veneers. Crowns are capable of the same cosmetic changes as veneers are, and they have the added advantage of correcting other dental problems. Crowns would be a better smile makeover option for you if you have dental problems like broken or cracked teeth and cavities on their front teeth.
Dental implants are an important tool in a smile makeover. A beautiful smile is a complete smile, so it is essential to replace any missing teeth when remaking your smile. Dental implants provide the best cosmetic result of all tooth replacement options because they are the only option that replaces the root of the tooth. The implant body anchors into the jawbone, just as a tooth’s natural root does. This allows your Oakwood dentist to build the crown as it emerges from the gums, providing the most natural appearance. Dental implants also do not need any attachment or connection to the neighboring teeth.
Imperfections in your teeth can be addressed to straighten your teeth over time. Invisalign is the leader in orthodontic clear aligners and Premier Dental of Oakwood is an Invisalign provider. Our dental team will take imaging of your mouth and create the treatment plan that will straighten your teeth over time and give you the smile you've always wanted.
