A smile makeover is a process of improving the appearance of your smile through a series of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Some of the components taken into consideration for a smile makeover include your facial appearance, hair color, teeth, gum tissue, skin tone, and lips. It can be customized based on your unique considerations. Smile therapy involves a variety of treatments such as bleaching, using veneers for closing your tooth gaps, fixing your dental bridges, or crowning. So, if you are not happy with your smile because of your teeth, Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry can help you to get back your million dollar smile.
Porcelain veneers are one of the procedures used to achieve a smile makeover. Porcelain veneers are an ultra-thin shell made of translucent porcelain that is cemented over the facial surfaces of your teeth to conceal dental flaws. The benefits of porcelain include durability, an improved smile appearance, and they are so realistic-looking that it makes veneers indistinguishable from natural teeth. They also require less tooth structure to be removed as compared to crowns. Veneers can correct smiles affected by worn enamel, which is the dulling of tooth enamel over time. As we age, our teeth begin to have chips, cracks, or a generally uneven appearance. Veneers can conceal all these imperfections in the tooth. Moreover, veneers can cover discoloration that may not be fully correctable through teeth whitening.
Invisalign® An Alternative to Braces
Invisalign is an excellent alternative if you want a more balanced smile but do not want the hassle of traditional braces. Invisalign is an effective solution for minor orthodontic problems such as crowding, crookedness, and gaps between the teeth, as well as irregularities in the bite. Invisalign aligners are made in such a way that they are just unnoticeable. They are also removable, so you can brush and floss without difficulty. It has a faster treatment time and fewer office visits as compared to metal braces. Invisalign aligners also provide the ability to enjoy an unrestricted diet.
People who have lost teeth might feel less confident smiling or talking. In addition to that, tooth loss can also cause biting irregularities and can impair eating habits, which leads to secondary health problems. Dental implants are also a procedure to achieve a smile makeover, in which artificial tooth roots are used to provide support for the restoration of missing teeth and to stop jawbone loss.
No matter how well you care for your teeth, some discoloration is bound to happen. Discoloration can be caused by exposure to dark-colored beverages, tobacco, foods, and routine wear and tear. Some minor stains can be removed with brushing and dental cleaning, while some stubborn stains can be removed with techniques such as teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments, offering a quick and affordable way to improve the appearance of your smile. The three major teeth whitening options include in-office whitening, professionally dispensed take-home kits, and over-the-counter products.
