Popular Treatments in Smile Makeovers: Advanced Cosmetic Dentistry By Alex Hecht on February 15, 2018

A woman smiling on the streetWhen patients have problems with their smile, they know that can stop by our Staten Island, NY dental practice for the latest in cosmetic dentistry treatments. Many times a single procedure is not enough, which is why we offer smile makeovers. These combinations of dental treatments can rejuvenate a patient’s entire mouth, helping them look great and allowing them to smile with confidence again.

There are many different ways to perform a smile makeover. We’d like to consider some of the most popular treatments that are used when patients undergo a smile makeover. The right treatments for you can be determined during the consultation process.

Teeth Whitening

For tooth discoloration and stains on the teeth, the most ideal option to consider is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening treatment helps bleach unwanted coloration of your teeth, giving you a much brighter smile in the process. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve optimal results.

Dental Bonding

For very minor chips, cracks, stains, and gaps, dental bonding could be your most ideal treatment option. Dental bonding uses tooth-colored dental resin that is painted directly onto your teeth. This resin conceals minor imperfections from view, helping your smile look pristine.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of dental ceramic that are fixed to the fronts of a patient’s teeth. With porcelain veneers, chips, cracks, minor misalignments, gaps, twists, and stains can all be masked. Porcelain veneers blend in seamlessly with your natural tooth structure, giving your smile a naturally restored appearance. In natural light to artificial light, no one will know you have veneers in place.

Tooth-Colored Dental Crowns

For major fractures that affect the front teeth, tooth-colored dental crowns are the most ideal option. These caps will protect the damaged tooth and also restore your ability to bite normally. The crown material is extremely durable, meaning normal wear and tear will not result in severe tooth damage. The craftsmanship of a dental crown is quite remarkable.

Gum Reshaping

If you have a gummy smile or other issues with the contour of your gumline, dentists can sculpt the gum tissue to enhance smile aesthetics. Soft tissue lasers and other techniques can reduce gum prominence and help make your teeth stand out more. Thanks to dental lasers, healing from this procedure is much faster and more comfortable.

Periodontal Grafting

Gum recession can be caused by a variety of problems, from teeth grinding (bruxism) and smoking to gum disease and the natural aging process. Dentists can rebuild the gemlike during a smile makeover thanks to gum grafting. These procedures used donor soft tissue or artificial gum grafts to help reconstruct the gumline.

Orthodontic Treatment

When teeth are crooked, the issues with misalignment can impact the appearance of your smile and overall dental health. That’s why orthodontic treatment is often made part of smile makeover procedures. Straightening crooked teeth can go a long way to enhancing smile aesthetics.
