A new smile can improve your overall appearance and boost your confidence. You can improve your smile through different dental cosmetic procedures such as; crowns, veneers, dental implants, teeth whitening, and tooth colored fillings. All of these can be performed by your primary dentist so what are you waiting for?
Before you get started on your smile makeover, what is it that you want to improve about your smile? You may want whiter teeth, crowns to make your teeth more even, Fastbraces to straighten out your teeth in a short amount of time, or maybe there is a combination of procedures you may want done to achieve your cosmetic goal.
One of the most common complaints about a smile is tooth discoloration. Overtime our teeth become less white due to what we eat and drink and falling behind on regular cleaning appointments. If you’re happy with the alignment of your teeth and just want a brighter and whiter smile, Whitening for Life can leave you with a healthy white smile year round! At each of your six-month cleaning appointments you will receive a free tube of whitening solution you can use to give your smile a sparkly boost!
Teeth Alignment and Spacing
There is no need to hide your smile if you’re embarrassed about crooked or gapped teeth. In order to straighten out your teeth and fix the alignment, ask us about Fastbraces. Fastbraces are unlike traditional braces that an orthodontist uses. These affordable braces work to move your teeth to the right location within months, not years. Fastbraces work by moving the roots of your teeth and the crowns at the same time so you can expect your smile makeover to be successful in a timely manner. Schedule a consultation with us to see if Fastbraces is right for you.
Have you lost a tooth due to damage or had one pulled and never had it replaced? A mouth with missing teeth can cause several other oral health issues along with it being a cosmetic issue, missing teeth can cause tooth decay, affect your bite, and be uncomfortable. It’s important for a healthy mouth and lifestyle to have a mouth full of teeth. You can replace missing teeth with:
• Dental Implants
• Partial Dentures
If you are missing one or several teeth, a bridge could be a good option to restore your smile. A bridge is a fixed restoration that is held in place using a crown attached to the adjacent teeth. The artificial tooth is specially designed to fit right in with your existing teeth so that your smile looks completely natural and healthy.
Veneers are some of the most common options when it comes to smile makeovers. They are thin, porcelain shells that are carefully shaped and bonded so they can adhere to the front of your teeth. Veneers can enhance the appearance of your teeth, they can cover discoloration, stains, chipped teeth, fill in moderate gaps, and lengthen short teeth. Veneers are strictly cosmetic and typically placed on the teeth you see when you smile.
The color and alignment of your teeth are a large factor when it comes to a smile makeover but there are other aspects of your teeth you may choose to address when creating your smile.
Longer teeth tend to make you look younger, while shorter teeth and gummy smiles are typically something people want to change about their smile. Wear and tear along with age can make your teeth appear shorter, but there are a few treatments your dentist can perform to shorten or lengthen your teeth to your desire. You can reshape your front teeth with composite bonding or porcelain veneers.
If you feel your teeth are not in proportion to your face, or your smile it’s worth having your dentist look and evaluate. Typically, most people find a well-balanced smile where the two front teeth are the most dominant and have a width-to-length ration of 4:5. You want your front teeth to appear proportionate, so your smile line appears to be in balance.
Once you have received your smile makeover, it’s important to maintain your new teeth! Make sure you’re going to see your dentist at least every six months for regular exams, cleanings, and fluoride. If you have received implants, bridges, or crowns, make sure you’re taking care of them properly, you’ve invested in this smile makeover and you want it to last!
A smile makeover, being mostly cosmetic, may not be completely covered by your insurance. Your makeover could cost more based on any other oral health problems your dentist uncovers, but after a consultation you should know what to expect in terms of finances. Remember, your smile makeover is an investment, so regular maintenance with dental visits will keep your crowns, veneers, and other restorative treatments looking good as new and lasting!
