If you are looking to improve the appearance of your teeth, a smile makeover is the way to go. The term refers to a series of cosmetic dentistry procedures performed to restore or improve the appearance of a person's smile.
Whether your teeth have been damaged by an accident or you simply have never been happy with their appearance, a dentist at our San Jose office will provide treatments that dramatically improve the way your smile looks.
Getting a smile makeover
During the patient's initial consultation, the dentist will evaluate the patient's teeth and discuss possible treatments and solutions to the issues the person is dealing with. The dentist will also talk to the patient about their desires for their smile.
There are many cosmetic treatments used during smile makeovers. The dentist will educate the patient about procedures that can be performed to address each highlighted issue and educate them about alternatives. The treatments commonly used during a smile makeover include:
1. Dental implants
A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth root that is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace missing or damaged teeth. A crown is placed on top of the artificial root to take the place of the old tooth. To be a candidate for dental implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. If there is not enough bone, sometimes a bone graft is recommended. Dental implants can last a lifetime if they are taken care of properly, while the crown will need to be replaced about every 10 to 15 years.
2. Teeth whitening
Just like the name implies, this procedure is used to improve the appearance of the person's teeth. There is a huge difference between using whitening products sold at grocery stores and getting teeth whitened at the dentist's clinic. Dentists use much stronger whitening agents that are not available to the public. A single whitening session performed by a dentist can significantly improve the color of a person's teeth.
Teeth whitening treatments are effective on the most common types of discoloration and stains that develop on teeth surfaces, like those caused by drinking coffee or red wine or using tobacco products.
These are thin shells used to cover the front-facing part of a person's teeth. It is used to deal with extreme cases of discoloration or stains that are not responsive to whitening treatments. Veneers can also be used to deal with minor alignment issues and spaces between teeth. With veneers, the patient's smile is drastically improved the moment they are installed. These thin shells are responsible for many amazing smiles in Hollywood.
