What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is not a single dental care procedure. Rather, it is a combination of dental care procedures that are performed together in order to best address the dental needs of a patient. By combining multiple dental treatments from various dental care disciplines, we will be able to enhance the beauty of a smile while also ensuring its continued health.
We offer a number of treatments at our cosmetic and family dentistry practice in Fremont that may prove helpful to you or a member of your family. We’d like to highlight some of the most popular smile makeover treatments right now so you have an idea of what we can achieve.
If you have teeth that are stained or discolored in some way, it’s important that you consider a professional teeth whitening treatment. Professional teeth whitening is much more effective than the over-the-counter tray systems, whitening strips, and whitening toothpastes you see at the local store. One tooth whitening treatment can brighten your smile up to 10 shades in just an hour.
If you are considering a smile makeover, sometimes all you need are Fremont porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells of a specially made dental ceramic. These shells are affixed to the front facing part of a patient’s teeth. When in place, the porcelain veneers can mask chipped teeth, cracked teeth, stained teeth, and even teeth that are slightly crooked. This means you can have that perfect smile that you have always wanted without major restorative or orthodontic therapies.
In the past, one of the most common treatments for crooked teeth was braces, but a new advancement in dental technology means you do not need to have brackets and wires in place for a winning smile. That treatment option is Invisalign®. These invisible braces are removable, easy to clean, and completely unnoticeable to people when you have them on.
If you have teeth that are severely damaged or decayed, then it’s a good idea to look into dental crowns. These dental crowns are caps that are fit snuggly over a damaged tooth. When in place, a dental crown will protect the tooth from further harm, eliminate any sensitivity or pain you were experiencing from the tooth, and provide a more aesthetically appealing appearance.
Rather than using metal fillings to take care of cavities, we prefer to use tooth-colored fillings. These white fillings blend in seamlessly with the rest of your tooth structure and are actually much safer for you in the long run than the metal fillings of old.
