Full smile makeovers combine two or more cosmetic services to rejuvenate the look of your smile. This cosmetic solution considers how different treatments complement each other, and your personalized makeover is designed to provide optimal beauty to your smile.
Whiten Teeth In-Office or At-Home
One way some people begin their smile makeovers is with the use of a teeth whitening system like Opalescence. Teeth are lightened by several shades in about an hour. Professional whitening can be done conveniently at the dentist’s office, and many patients opt to add this treatment to a routine cleaning appointment. A specially formulated bleaching gel is applied to each tooth and allowed to set. The process is repeated up to four times to achieve the desired level of brightness. Opalescence also offers customized trays which can be used at home to whiten and maintain smiles.
Tooth-colored Composite Resin and Bonding
The tooth-colored composite resin is another way patients can cosmetically enhance their smiles. Composite resin is sometimes used to replace silver fillings and conceal cavity treatment. Composite resin can also be used for tooth bonding, which can seamlessly treat chips, discoloration, and worn teeth with a bond beautifully matched to the natural enamel of teeth.
One of the most dramatic ways to transform smiles is with porcelain veneers, which can correct imperfections in teeth like:
- Chips and worn edges
- Discoloration and Staining
- Misshapen or too small
- Mild crowding
- Uneven spacing
Veneers replace a very small amount of your tooth’s enamel with an ultra-thin porcelain shell that is customized to the unique shape of your teeth and your personal preferences. They are durable and provide dazzling results.
Crowns and Bridges
Porcelain crowns also provide a natural and beautiful restoration. They can be used to enhance teeth that have structural damage and replace missing tooth when supported by a dental implant.
A fixed bridge can replace one or two teeth (if they are side-by-side) with an artificial tooth held in place by two crowns that are placed securely on healthy adjacent teeth.
