Cosmetic procedures for your teeth can bring drastic improvements to your appearance. However, your teeth may have issues that require more than a single procedure before you are fully satisfied with the results. A smile makeover can do wonders for people who want to make comprehensive changes to the look of their smile. With a smile makeover, you can work with your dentist to select multiple cosmetic treatments, in order to fully address any issues that have left you feeling self-conscious.
Teeth that have been damaged, or are weakened by health issues may need restorative treatments before they can receive cosmetic treatments. In some cases, a restorative treatment can provide an esthetic improvement as well. A dental crown is a protective seal that covers the entirety of a tooth above the gum line. A crown allows a damaged tooth to function again, and can also be constructed of material that gives it the look of a healthy tooth.
Cosmetic procedures can address several issues with the appearance of a person’s teeth. Professional teeth whitening can add vibrancy to a smile that has become stained over the years. Dental bonding can cover a tooth that is damaged, discolored, or misshapen. Bonding can even be used to hide an unsightly gap between teeth. Contouring can help reduce an oversized tooth, or correct a misshapen appearance. Your dentist can also attach porcelain veneers to your teeth. Veneers can address the appearance of damaged, discolored, or misshapen teeth by covering them with a thin, porcelain shell that is permanently attached to the front of your teeth.
