Professional teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dental procedures in the world, and it’s no wonder why. Having unsightly stains can not only be embarrassing, they can affect other areas of your life, including your career and relationships. For many, though, simple teeth whitening won’t do the trick. Those with multiple cosmetic dental problems might feel disheartened to treat any one of them. If you’re one of these patients, there is a solution that we can customize to give you a beautiful new smile.
What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover begins with a discussion. First, you and your dentist can outline what you’d like to correct, giving you the opportunity to custom craft a treatment plan tailored to the results you want. By using resources such as an LVl-trained dentist, you’ll have access to an LVI smile catalog which includes an array of differently shaped teeth, possible cosmetic dental procedures, and the visual results. A guide like this can give you the the power to hand-pick the smile you want, while informing you of the best ways to accomplish your goal.
Smile Makeover Procedures
Each makeover is different, as no two smiles are the same, but most procedures focus on correcting stains, gaps between teeth, short or misshapen teeth, and even missing teeth!
Here are three of the main options available:
Dental implants are one of the strongest and most reliable solutions for replacing missing teeth. Not only do they allow you to fill in gaps and eat your favorite foods, they’re virtually undetectable. Comprised of two main components, the titanium implant and the crown, dental implants are so successful because of a process known as osseointegration. When the titanium implant is inserted into the jaw bone, it fuses with surrounding tissue and bone, functioning like a natural tooth root. After this process is complete, a crown made from medical-grade ceramic that has been colored to the exact shade of your teeth, is attached to the titanium implant
If you’ve been holding off on whitening or any other procedure because your teeth are crooked, gapped, or rotated, Invisalign can be your solution. Using the same time-tested method as traditional braces, Invisalign is a custom-crafted set of clear aligners that can correct your teeth in as little as six months. Without worrying about metal, Invisalign offers the perfect solution to correcting your bite and smile without changing your eating habits or making you feel self-conscious.
Known to produce some of the most dramatic smile results, porcelain veneers are a thin facade of ceramic bonded to the visible surfaces of your teeth. At the dental lab, skilled technicians create veneers to our exact specifications to give you the smile of your dreams. Capable of fixing dramatic tooth staining, chipped or cracked teeth, and gaps, porcelain veneers are so effective because they don’t rely on natural tooth matter. They give your tooth a shiny, new, white surface.
