Did you know that we can offer a smile makeover? This involves combining both cosmetic and restorative dental treatments to improve the beauty of your smile. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX, dentist talks about how we improve the beauty of your smile, even if you have multiple imperfections that need attention.
Starting with a Cosmetic Consultation
To begin, our team will conduct a cosmetic consultation. During this visit, we will talk to you about your goals for your smile. We then carefully examine the smile to assess the cause and severity of your esthetic concerns. From there, we can create a personalized treatment plan, a custom makeover to improve these imperfections and help you smile with confidence.
Planning Your Makeover
Our team will examine your smile with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, which provides images instantly chairside, so we can walk you through our diagnosis and limit how long you’re in the chair. These detailed images help us diagnose the factors behind your cosmetic issues with precision and accuracy. The resulting treatment plan could consist of several cosmetic treatments, or possibly some restorative treatments as well, so we can not only boost the beauty of your smile, but improve your overall oral health and bite function too.
Our Cosmetic Treatment Options
If you have unsightly stains on your teeth, we could offer professional teeth whitening to brighten smiles by up to eight shades in some cases. These treatments are designed to offer long-lasting results that are dramatic, without leaving you vulnerable to tooth sensitivity in the days to come. If you have multiple issues with the color and shape of the teeth, we could recommend bonding and contouring. Without bonding, our team will use composite resin, a metal-free material shaded to blend with your teeth to mask multiple imperfections at once. Contouring can be used to reshape the teeth through gentle sanding and buffing. Again, only requiring one visit to complete!
Porcelain veneers alone can offer a smile makeover, as these are thin dental restorations that we attach to the front facing sides of your teeth. These instantly change the color and shoe of your smile addressing issues like unsightly gaps, discoloration, misshapen structures, and even the appearance of minor misalignment. If you have decay or infection, or severe damage, we could use lifelike fillings and custom crowns to repair the teeth and improve overall oral health. If you have missing teeth, then we can help with implant dentistry, offering new teeth that look and function like natural teeth.
