Call Us to Learn About These Popular Smile Makeover Procedures

A smile makeover can be a lifesaver. It can quickly restore the appearance of your teeth as well as your confidence. People with unsightly smiles tend to feel less confident when they interact with others.

There is no good reason to settle for a less-than-attractive smile. Just give us a call to learn about some of these popular smile makeover procedures that can be used to restore or improve the appearance of your teeth.

Popular smile makeover procedures

1. Dental cleaning

It is easy to think of a dental cleaning as only a preventative dental procedure, but it can also be used to improve the appearance of a person's smile. It is used to remove tartar which can coat tooth surfaces and give them a brownish tint. Also, tartar is a lot more porous than tooth surfaces so teeth that are coated with tartar are more likely to develop stains and discoloration.

A patient's teeth will look brighter and have fewer stains on them after a dental cleaning.

2. Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is another popular treatment that might be used during a smile makeover. The best way to whiten teeth is to get it done by a dentist. These professionals use stronger bleaching agents than those found in over-the-counter whitening products and they can drastically improve the color of a person's teeth after a single session.

More severe cases of discoloration will need a few follow-up treatments until the desired shade of white is achieved. Teeth whitening is effective on most types of stains and discoloration like those caused by smoking or regularly drinking coffee.

Since most patients will continue to expose their teeth to the things that led to stains in the first place, maintenance treatments are often recommended to ensure the patient's teeth remain the desired shade.

3. Crowns

Crowns can be used to deal with a multitude of dental issues. They can be used to cover up poorly shaped, broken or badly-decayed teeth. They can also be used to deal with minor alignment issues like gaps between teeth.

In addition, crowns can be used to deal with severe cases of stains and discoloration that cannot be addressed with teeth-whitening treatments.

4. Dental implants

Dental implants can be used to restore a person's smile when they are missing one or more natural teeth. The implant replaces the lost roots of the tooth and a crown replaces the visible part. What really separates implants from other dental prosthetics is the fact that they do not need specialized maintenance. Implants only need to be cared for in the same way a person would take care of their real teeth.

The end result, the patient's smile looks as if they never lost a tooth in the first place.

The bottom line

Smile makeovers utilize a series of simple treatments to ensure patients end up with a smile they can be proud of. There are many other treatments that are used during smile makeovers. Talk to a dentist to learn more about them.
