A smile makeover is cosmetic dentistry technique that uses one or several procedures to improve the physical appearance of your teeth, gums, and smile.
Before developing a custom treatment plan, your Dental Renaissance provider evaluates your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth, gums, and lips. They use this information to guide treatment, ensuring long-lasting, noticeable results.
No two smile makeovers are exactly alike. Dental Renaissance tailors treatment based on your oral health history and individual goals. Following an exam and thorough evaluation, your provider might recommend:
A dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic that fills a gap in your smile. There are several types of dental bridges, but each features a supportive framework as well as a pontic (artificial tooth). A dental bridge can help prevent gum disease and bone loss. It can also restore your smile to its healthy, near-original condition.
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped coverings used to support a cracked, chipped, decaying, or discolored tooth. Once placed, a dental crown covers the entire visible portion of your tooth above the gumline.
If you are missing one or several permanent teeth, you might benefit from dental implants. Dental implants are small metal posts used to support crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures. They fuse to your jawbone, providing a sturdy and long-lasting restorative option.
If you have crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw, you might benefit from orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires, brackets, or rubber bands. This allows you to receive treatment discreetly.
If you have yellow, gray, or an otherwise discolored smile, teeth whitening can eradicate stains. Dental Renaissance offers chair-side whitening treatment as well as custom take-home whitening trays.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that cover the front of your natural teeth. They’re ideal for people whose teeth don’t respond to traditional whitening treatments. Veneers can also improve the appearance of smaller-than-average or unusually shaped teeth.
Only an experienced dentist can determine if you qualify for a smile makeover. Following an oral exam, a review of your oral health history, and a discussion of your lifestyle and goals for treatment, your Dental Renaissance provider can develop a custom smile makeover treatment plan.
