A smile makeover is a solution to all your cosmetic dental concerns. It is a combination of multiple dental procedures that address almost all types of dental issues, ultimately giving you a more pleasing and confident smile. Individuals who haven’t visited the dentist in many years could be suffering from various dental problems. Such patients would be ideal candidates for a smile makeover.
What are the oral concerns addressed by a smile makeover?
Cavities: Cavities are commonly caused due to the adhered plaque and tartar deposits. The microbes could discharge acidic substances that erode the enamel and decay the underlying tissues, leading to cavities. We treat cavities by removing the decay and filling it with suitable filling material, preferably dental-grade ceramic or composite.
Damaged teeth: Teeth that are damaged due to external trauma or excessive wear leave a nasty appearance on the teeth. Moreover, they could expose the underlying dental pulp to the microbes, causing a root canal infection. Damaged teeth can be brought back to their ideal contour and structural integrity using dental crowns, veneers, or composite bonding.
Gum diseases: Gingivitis and periodontitis are gum diseases that affect one’s oral health and the aesthetics of the smile to a severe extent. They could result in receding gums, the decay of the tissues, bleeding, discharge of pus, etc. We will extract the decayed gums using laser therapy and graft healthy tissues obtained from a different part of the mouth.
Discolored teeth: Teeth that have stained over time due to factors such as smoking, improper oral hygiene, excessive consumption of beverages and colored foods, etc. can make your smile appear dull. The stains can be removed by teeth whitening procedures, where we use a whitening gel rich in hydrogen peroxide to bleach the teeth.
Missing teeth: Missing teeth are a huge letdown, and can lead to frequent embarrassment. They can also cause several drawbacks such as hindered oral functionality, drifting of the adjoining teeth, jawbone deterioration, etc. We recommend getting missing teeth restored using dental implants, bridges, or dentures, depending on your candidacy and the number of missing teeth.
Malocclusion: A person’s heredity often influences malocclusion. Some of the other causes are a wider dental arch, missing teeth, faulty oral appliances, etc. Orthodontic solutions are provided using dental braces or Invisalign to bring the teeth to their ideal alignment, giving you a more beautiful smile.
