What Can a Smile Makeover Do For Me?
Our dentists are extensively trained in both restorative and cosmetic dentistry techniques to make your smile as radiant as possible. This treatment is designed to correct many different concerns, and is commonly used to:
- Replace missing teeth
- Straighten crooked or misaligned teeth
- Whiten stains and discoloration
- Conceal chips, cracks, or gaps
- Improve the appearance of short or worn teeth
Because the details of a smile makeover vary depending on each patient’s unique needs, the procedure is different for every individual. Treatment options may include:
Teeth whitening is a very popular treatment that can help individuals whiten and brighten their teeth for a beautiful final outcome. The staining effects of tobacco, wine, coffee, and other products we consume often reach beyond the surface of teeth and result in deep staining or discoloration. Our professional-grade cosmetic bleaching can penetrate the inner layers of tooth enamel for more effective and time-efficient results than over-the-counter whitening products. Our bleaching options are customizable according to a patient’s level of tooth sensitivity and whether they prefer day or night whitening. We also offer at-home and in-office treatments for ultimate convenience.

Invisalign® clear aligners can allow patients to straighten their teeth without the hassle and discomfort of metal wire braces. With Invisalign®, individuals can typically straighten their teeth and correct their bite in less time and fewer office visits than is required by traditional braces. This treatment works discreetly, using clear plastic aligners to gradually guide teeth into the proper location. Each set is custom-designed to fit your teeth comfortably, and aligners are changed out every few weeks until the desired outcome is achieved. Plus, the aligners are removable, allowing patients to enjoy an unrestricted diet and brush and floss their teeth with ease.

Tooth-colored fillings are used to address cavities and decay. Generally less likely to break down than traditional amalgam (metal) fillings, they are composed of a durable material designed to blend in seamlessly with the teeth. What’s more, tooth-colored fillings bond naturally to the tooth enamel and can retain more of the tooth’s original structure, providing benefits both cosmetically and functionally.

Porcelain veneers have proven to be invaluable in cosmetic dentistry. Composed of thin porcelain shells that are custom-designed to match your natural tooth color, porcelain veneers can mask chips, gaps, discoloration, and minor misalignment issues for a smile with improved form. They can also be used to lengthen teeth that appear short or worn-down to achieve a fuller, younger-looking appearance. During treatment, the thin porcelain shell will be bonded to the affected tooth for a comfortable fit that should look and feel natural. After the veneer is applied, it typically requires no additional maintenance aside from normal brushing and flossing. Porcelain is very long-lasting and preserves much of the tooth’s original structure, offering functional support and aesthetic beauty for years to come.

Dental implants can be an excellent way to replace a missing tooth. They are a secure restorative solution designed to give your smile renewed form and improve your bite. Not only can implants provide cosmetic benefits, but they are also very important to maintaining your overall oral health. An unfilled space left by an extracted or lost tooth can cause the shifting of surrounding teeth, as well as a loss in jawbone density and other dental issues. Dental implants can provide a reliable and aesthetically pleasing solution to missing teeth while looking and feeling natural. Since dental implants are designed to mimic a natural tooth root, they should not move or shift along the gumline and require no additional maintenance other than regular brushing and flossing.
