Once you find yourself hiding when the camera comes out because you are self-conscious of your smile? Or do you often avoid smiling a natural, full smile altogether? If so, you may want to discuss a smile makeover with our highly skilled cosmetic dentists.
At Arguello Dentistry, we understand how important your smile is to you and to those around you. That’s why our smile makeover dentist is committed to doing everything we can to give you the smile you want and deserve.
WHAT IS A SMILE MAKEOVER?
A smile makeover is the process of improving the appearance of your smile with cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures and tools. Thanks to improvements in dental technology and cosmetic materials, our team can easily address a variety of patient concerns.
For instance, with a smile makeover, yellow or stained teeth can be whitened, gaps between teeth can be corrected, crooked teeth can be straightened, and gums can be reshaped.
In short, a smile makeover is a unique combination of dental science and artistry that can lead you to a smile that elevates your self-image, in less than a week in some cases. To see the amazing results our Florida cosmetic dentistry patients have achieved, check out some examples of smile makeovers in our Smile Gallery.
YOU’RE OPTIONS: TYPES OF PROCEDURES
The goal of a smile makeover is for you to have a whiter, brighter, and more visually appealing smile. Here are just a few of the procedures used to accomplish those goals:
Porcelain veneers can be used as “instant orthodontics,” covering teeth that are uneven, chipped, stained, out of proportion or otherwise problematic. Veneers can be used to fill small gaps between teeth, as well.
Dental implants or permanent dental bridges can help replace missing teeth and solve gaps between teeth.
Porcelain crowns and other porcelain restorations (also called inlays and onlays) can improve cracked or broken teeth.
Teeth whitening options are available to improve the color of tooth enamel.
Gum reshaping (also called “Smile Lifts”) can help improve the look of “gummy smiles.
Gum Grafting can add back receded gum tissue that has exposed tooth root surfaces causing asymmetry in your smile as well as increased sensitivity or pain and increased risk of decay and tooth loss.
Bone Grafting can replace missing jaw bone that is lost after teeth are lost or have been missing for a period of time. Bone grafting can enable dental implants to be placed where they were not an option in the past due to limited available bone.
Implant Dentures are dentures that are held in place by dental implants enabling the dentures to act and feel more like real teeth. This technology also eliminates the need for denture adhesives.
Orthodontics can correct a “bad bite,” or teeth that are crooked and misaligned.
