A smile makeover is requested by a patient to improve the appearance of your teeth and overall mouth. Smile makeovers can fix a number of things, including stains, chips, and gaps. If you want to change the overall appearance of your smile, you can do so with a smile makeover.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with discoloration or broken teeth. There are makeover options available at Scripps Poway Dental Care Call our San Diego dental office today to book an appointment.
Below you will read about several of the smile makeover treatment options that Scripps Poway Dental Care offers.
Whitening treatments are used to get rid of any stains and brighten your smile. There are many at-home options, but it’s best to get it done by your dentist. The dentist will use a whitening system that has more hydrogen peroxide so the treatment won’t take as long and will produce better results.
You can also get veneers as a form of a smile makeover. Veneers are thin shells that are attached to your natural teeth. Veneers are best for stained, chipped or gapped teeth.
Bonding is similar to veneers, but a lot less invasive and time-consuming. Bonding takes a durable resign and places it in-between gaps and chips to give the appearance of full, intact teeth.
Crowns are used to protect your teeth. Crowns come in many different materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or stainless steel. They not only protect your teeth but improve strength and the overall appearance of teeth that may need a makeover.
Implants are another thing that can be used when performing a smile makeover. If you have teeth that are decayed or missing, you may want to get implants. Your dentist will put in a titanium screw in your jawbone on which implants are then attached to.
Lastly, if you don’t want braces, you can use Invisalign and get the same result. It is a plastic tray, similar to a mouth guard that helps to straighten and align teeth.
