What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover involves any change you wish to make in your oral appearance. From teeth whitening or a cosmetic update to a major re-alignment to correct a malocclusion, your cosmetic dentist has a treatment plan to satisfy your dental needs.

One change that can be accomplished in one dental visit that provides a significant improvement in your smile is with teeth whitening. Topical stains and teeth that have become drab over time can be lightened up to eight shades. Your dental professional can deliver excellent results with Zoom teeth whitening utilizing some of the most powerful whitening agents available applied with expertise to produce the desired result.

For intrinsic stains that may be more difficult to treat, dental bonding is the perfect option. Your cosmetic dentist will blend a composite resin to match your natural teeth making those stains disappear.

For more extensive repair such as tooth discoloration, chipped teeth, worn dental enamel, gaps between teeth or misshapen teeth, porcelain veneers can correct one or multiple dental problems.

Dental veneers are made with wafer thin porcelain that is permanently cemented to the front of teeth requiring treatment. They can be placed on one or numerous teeth providing an aesthetic correction that is virtually indistinguishable from neighboring teeth. The veneers are fabricated to coordinate in size, shape and color to natural teeth.

When teeth are out of alignment an over bite, cross bite or under bite can occur. There are a few options for correction, but for patients wishing to alter their malocclusion without committing to years of traditional orthodontic repair, ClearCorrect is the ideal choice.

ClearCorrect provides a means to straighten teeth utilizing a series of clear aligners that have been fabricated for your specific malocclusion. What makes ClearCorrect different from other similar programs is that aligners are manufactured in phases so needed or desired alterations can be made throughout treatment.

Approximately every six weeks your dental provider will monitor your progress. Photographs, x-rays, and dental impressions are the tools utilized to design your new smile and to evaluate whether or not you are a good candidate for ClearCorrect. Treatment times vary but typically take six to eighteen months from start to completion with obvious results evident very quickly.
