Smile Makeover Cosmetic Dentistry Options

smile makeover Sunnyvale, TX

A smile makeover corrects different forms of dental cosmetic concerns to give you an attractive smile. Dental flaws like tooth discoloration, cracks, fractures and minor misalignment issues can affect the appearance of a healthy smile. The dentist can provide cosmetic dentistry treatments together or alone to achieve aesthetically appealing results. The following are some of the cosmetic dentistry options available for a smile makeover.

Cosmetic dentistry options

Teeth whitening

Tooth stains and discoloration are one of the most common cosmetic concerns with patients. If teeth start to develop surface stains or look yellowish or grayish, the appearance of the smile is greatly affected. Discoloration can make teeth look dull, making it seem like there is an infection or disease.

Professional teeth whitening treatment provided by the dentist eliminates surface stains and can make teeth up to eight shades whiter. The results are not only impressive but are achievable within a single dental appointment as well. The whitening session lasts for about an hour and a half but can be adjusted to fit the patient's needs.

Cosmetic dental bonding

This procedure is a quick and effective way to improve the look of the smile. During the dental bonding procedure, a dentist will apply tooth-colored composite resin to the affected teeth. They will shape the tooth, and after achieving the desired results, a special light is used to harden the material and bond it to the tooth’s surface. The entire bonding process can be completed in one visit to the dental office and usually takes an hour to complete.

Dental bonding has many applications, so it is often included in a smile makeover plan. It can cover tooth stains, repair minor chips, cracks or fractures, improve the color and shape of teeth and close gaps between teeth. Cosmetic dental bonding is incredibly versatile and offers a cost-effective smile transformation.

Porcelain veneers

When patients have multiple blemishes or imperfections on their teeth, the dentist will probably suggest a porcelain veneers treatment. Veneers are thin sheets of ceramic that are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth. With them, the dentist can improve the size, shape and color of teeth to hide flaws such as chips, cracks and fractures.

Porcelain veneers usually require two dental appointments to complete. First, the dentist will need to prepare the tooth and take impressions. A dental lab will use the impressions to create custom veneers for the patient. The whole process takes a few weeks, which is longer than regular teeth whitening or bonding treatments; however, the results of the treatment are usually worth the wait. With proper care, veneers are highly durable and can last for 10 years or more.

In summary

If you are not pleased with the way your smile looks, cosmetic dentistry options are effective. The general dentist provides smile makeover treatments to improve your smile. Treatment plans are designed specifically for each patient and the duration and number of necessary treatments depend on the complexity of the situation. Book an appointment to get started.
