Smile makeover 101
A smile makeover is uniquely different for each patient. While some patients may need a full-mouth restoration, others may only need a dental makeover for cosmetic reasons. The best way to determine which smile makeover treatment plan is right for you is to schedule a consultation with the team at SmilesNY. During your initial visit, you can discuss your dental concerns and share your aesthetic goals. A thorough dental exam will also be conducted to address any dental issues or restorative needs. Common conditions transformed by a smile makeover:
- Damaged teeth
- Small or misshapen teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Cracked or worn teeth
- Missing teeth
- Tooth decay
- Stained or discolored enamel
The most popular smile correction treatments
The primary goal of a smile makeover is to restore a patient’s teeth to proper form and function in an aesthetically pleasing way. Here is a look at the most popular dental procedures for a smile makeover.
Dental implants can replace one missing tooth or a whole arch of teeth that have been lost. Dental implants integrate into the jawbone for long-term tooth replacement. Options include implant-supported bridges, hybrid denture options such as implant-supported dentures or All-on-4® full-arch restoration, or a single dental implant.
Dental crowns help strengthen and restore teeth that are damaged or decayed. Dental crowns, also called caps, can rebuild a tooth’s structure to restore the function, appearance, and feel of a natural tooth. Dental crowns cover the teeth starting at the gumline and are made of ceramic, porcelain, or other high-quality materials.
Dental bridges are created with two or more crowns fused together, acting like a "bridge" to eliminate gaps by connecting to the neighboring teeth. Dental bridges are designed to look and feel natural to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. Like dental crowns, bridges are made of high-quality aesthetic materials to be a durable, long-term solution.
Teeth that have minor damage can be restored to their natural-looking appearance and function with tooth-colored inlay and onlay restorations, or composite fillings. The dental experts at SmilesNY Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry will ensure that the shade of your tooth-colored restorations matches the neighboring teeth. Tooth-colored restorations can bring back a more aesthetic appeal to teeth that have suffered fractures, cavities, or other dental issues.
Cosmetic dentistry procedures can aesthetically enhance your smile. One of the most popular options is porcelain veneers, which are thin covers adhered to the front and sides of teeth to mask any cosmetic imperfections. SmilesNY Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry even provides patients with an innovative way to try out their new smile before they commit to it. Cosmalite® try-on veneers make it possible for patients to see or even wear their future smile before choosing the long-term solution of porcelain veneers. It is an easy four-step process to get temporary veneers so you can make an educated decision.
Other options available at SmilesNY:
- Professional teeth whitening with ZOOM! is a quick and easy way to brighten your smile
- Dental bonding adds tooth-colored composite material to teeth to make them longer, wider, or more appealing
- Invisalign® clear aligners can help patients achieve a straighter smile without traditional metal braces
