It’s just the nature of some smile concerns that multiple of them occur at once. For a lot of people, this can make the process of improving their smiles seem difficult, or even impossible, and discourage them from even trying. For many patients, however, we can often create a smile makeover plan that not only address all of their smile concerns, but does so in a way that’s much more efficient and minimally invasive than they expect. The key is to diagnose the specific concerns you have with your smile’s appearance, then devise a plan that focuses on improving your smile as a whole.
Brightening your teeth with whitening
Brightening your smile is often a simple process that can be accomplished with topical teeth-whitening treatment. The stains that often develop on teeth are extrinsic, meaning they develop on the surfaces, and teeth-whitening is usually a highly effective solution to erasing them. However, teeth-whitening isn’t always the best solution, and for some forms of tooth discoloration, you might need a different treatment option. Part of any smile makeover plan is a comprehensive diagnosis to pinpoint the nature and extent of all of your smile’s concerns. If your teeth stains won’t respond to whitening, then we can design a more appropriate treatment plan according the cause of your tooth discoloration.
Repairing those small chips or cracks
Teeth stains are a common cosmetic smile concern, and one of the easiest to address, but they aren’t always the only concern with a smile’s appearance. In addition to teeth stains, or instead of them, you might worry more about the small chips and/or cracks in your teeth that are becoming more noticeable. Minor damage to your tooth structure takes more than teeth-whitening to fix, but the process can still be minimally invasive with the right cosmetic treatment. For instance, tooth bonding or porcelain veneers can restore the whole, healthy appearance of your teeth with minimal or no alterations to your tooth structure.
Improving multiple teeth at once
Because smiles can often be affected by multiple cosmetic issues at once, a smile makeover often involves devising a plan to address different types of concerns with minimal treatment. For many concerns, that can be accomplished with the help of custom-designed porcelain veneers. By bonding a custom-made veneer to one or more teeth, we can instantly improve the appearance of their teeth and make them more uniform with the rest of your smile. Depending on your specific smile concerns, the right number of porcelain veneers may be all you need to complete your smile makeover procedure.
