Depending on what your teeth look like now and how you want them to look, your West Bloomfield Township dentist will make recommendations for the most appropriate cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry treatments to give you a new smile. A smile makeover can be intended solely to beautify a smile, or it can be designed to both correct and enhance. Here are just five possible components of your life-altering smile makeover.
1. Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening remains one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments because it is effective, long-lasting, fast, and affordable. Even if your teeth are otherwise flawed – a little crooked, some gaps, other imperfections – teeth whitening can make them look flawless.
Super-white teeth are a sign of health and vitality. You can look like your very best self with a whitening treatment completed in about an hour at your dentist’s office or over a period of a few weeks using convenient, take-home whitening trays customized just for you.
When you want to straighten your smile, correct your bite, or eliminate teeth grinding and clenching, a course of personalized Invisalign will get the job done. Discreet and effective, Invisalign trays are clear and difficult to see. They are designed to move a few teeth at a time, until your entire smile is in alignment. Many people follow this treatment with a teeth-whitening treatment for a supreme and powerful smile makeover.
3. Porcelain Veneers
When you’re ready to change your smile from top to bottom, to embrace your inner VIP, to look like your very best self, it’s time to talk porcelain veneers. Carefully customized in color, shape, size, and length to suit you and only you, veneers are made of super-strong and incredibly thin porcelain that is stain-resistant and long-lasting. You will truly have a celebrity smile after you’ve gotten veneers. Your teeth will never be whiter or more stunning.
4. Dental Crowns
People often associate dental crowns with root canal therapy. Yes, crowns are indeed used to protect a tooth that has undergone a root canal, and they are used to anchor a dental bridge, but they have even more uses.
Crowns can protect a tooth that is deteriorating, beautify a tooth that is unsightly or misshapen, whiten a stained tooth, or fix a decayed tooth that has a cavity so large a tooth-colored filling cannot repair it. Crowns are carefully made to match the rest of your teeth and blend in, so no one will ever know you’ve had a cosmetic upgrade.
5. Tooth-Colored Fillings
Fillings can do much more than just repair decayed teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are a truly powerful and versatile dental enhancement. They can be used to make minor cosmetic repairs, like whitening a tooth, filling a gap, or sculpting a misshapen tooth. The natural-looking, composite fillings are designed to blend into tooth enamel and can restore chipped or cracked teeth, stop deterioration, and replace old silver fillings.
A smile makeover doesn’t have to be intense and comprised of multiple procedures to make an impact. Just one treatment can make all the difference in how your teeth look.
