Who is a Good Candidate?

You may be an ideal candidate for a smile makeover, if you are experiencing:

  • Dental staining or tooth discoloration
  • Missing teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Damaged or decayed teeth
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Gapped or widely spaced teeth

Treatments Provided in a Smile Makeover

Below are the variety of treatments that can be combined to customize your smile makeover:

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings: This treatment uses composite resin tinted to match the natural shade of a tooth to repair teeth with minor to moderate decay. Composite resin provides a safe yet durable alternative to unappealing silver fillings.
  • Dental Crowns: For patients with more significant damage, such as cracks or severe decay, a custom-made dental crown can be designed to cover their tooth to restore its structural integrity. Dental crowns are fashioned to blend with the natural shape, size, and color of your smile.
  • Teeth Whitening: This treatment is recommended for patients with minor to moderate extrinsic dental stains often caused by the foods and beverages consumed. It can also be used to treat teeth that have yellowed or grayed from age, smoking, or other lifestyle factors. Teeth whitening performed by a dentist provides professional strength whitening gel, safer and more effective than over-the-counter kits, toothpastes, and mouthwashes.
  • Porcelain Veneers: For patients with more severe dental stains or teeth that are chipped or moderately damaged, custom-made porcelain shells can be designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These ultra-thin shells are customized to blend beautifully with the natural shape and color of your smile, and when properly cared for can last up to 20 years.
  • Invisalign®: Crooked and uneven teeth not only prevents patients from fully and confidently smiling, but can even cause increased risk for tooth decay and gum disease. Invisalign® is an effective orthodontic treatment that provides a series of clear aligner trays to effectively straighten teeth. Each tray should be worn for at least 22 hours a day for two weeks at a time before upgrading to the next tray in the series. Because trays are removable, there are no food restrictions and teeth and trays can be easily cleaned. This treatment provides a quicker and more comfortable solution to achieving a straighter and healthier smile compared to traditional metal braces.
  • Dental Implants: Patients missing one tooth or an entire arch of teeth can benefit from an implant-supported restoration. Dental implants provide the most effective solution to restoring a smile with tooth loss. Dental implants are designed to fuse with the natural jawbone and support a single dental crown, implant-retained bridge, or full denture to restore the function and aesthetics of a smile.
