There are plenty of treatments out there that a cosmetic dentist can use to give you the smile of your dreams. It takes expertise to know which one to use and when, however. That's why smile makeovers are carefully designed, and why each treatment plan must be deliberately developed, taking into account all of the unique needs of a patient. We'd like to take a few moments right now to go into some of the basics of smile makeover design so you understand how it can help you look your absolute best.
What is smile design?
Smile design refers to the deliberate creation of a dental treatment plan that helps enhance the overall beauty of your smile. A dentist will note the current aesthetic and functional problems that you are facing and use his or her experience in combination with the latest in dental care technology to make sure that you have a stellar smile that looks its absolute best.
Ideal Candidates for a Smile Makeover
The best candidates for smile makeover treatment are people who have major issues with dental aesthetics. By visiting our cosmetic dentistry center, we will be able to look into all of your treatment options and determine which one will be ideal for you and your needs.
Below are some common smile design and smile makeover treatments that have proven helpful for many patients.
Porcelain Dental Veneers
One of the most versatile treatments out there for smile designs is porcelain veneers. Also referred to as dental veneers, these thin shells of dental ceramic are adhered to the fronts of a patient's teeth in order to mask the following:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Stained teeth
- Tooth gaps
- Crooked teeth
- Uneven teeth
When teeth are discolored or stained, it can make you self-conscious about smiling, laughing, or speaking, even around people that you've known for years. With teeth whitening, a single treatment and lighten the color of your teeth by several shades. This is much more effective than using over-the-counter whitening kits from the local store.
Another very popular cosmetic dentistry treatment is dental bonding. Also known as tooth bonding, this treatment involves the application of tooth-colored resin directly to a tooth in order to fill cracks, mask chips, and conceal dental stains.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
For major chips and cracks that cannot be addressed with dental bonding or porcelain veneers, the use of porcelain dental crowns is ideal. These aesthetic caps are used to fit snugly over a severely damaged tooth, restoring its strength and appearance.
Comprehensive Smile Enhancement
While these treatments can be used individually to achieve excellent results, a true smile design involves combinations of treatments in order to leave you looking your absolute best. Dental veneers in conjunction with bonding, whitening, crowns, and other services is fine way for you to look your absolute best.
