What Does a Smile Makeover Entail?

It’s no secret that the first thing most people notice about you is your smile. And it can be embarrassing and damage your self-esteem if you’re not confident with your smile. A smile makeover can help you get your confidence back with a radiant, beautiful smile.

At Today’s Dentistry, Dr. Peter K. Lee and our team give our clients throughout San Jose, California, something to really smile about with a number of cosmetic dentistry options. Because no two smiles are alike, no two smile makeovers are the same. 

To help you better understand your options, here’s a look at the wide array of possibilities with a smile makeover, so you can start planning your route to achieve your unique results.

Brighten your smile

Professional teeth whitening is one of the easiest smile fixes. Although your enamel is designed to last a lifetime, it’s still susceptible to wear and tear and discoloration. Years of staining or decay, on top of the natural breakdown in your enamel, can leave your teeth discolored.

To restore your pearly whites, we offer in-office whitening with Zoom!®. These professional-grade whitening trays are custom-made by Dr. Lee to fit your teeth.

Hide imperfections

If teeth whitening just isn’t doing the job and your teeth are still stained, we offer natural-looking dental veneers. Our veneers are wafer-thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin. And not only do they give you whiter, brighter teeth, but they also cover up a host of imperfections, such as:

Veneers are the ultimate all-in-one tool for making over your smile.

Restore missing teeth

A child with missing teeth is adorable, but unfortunately, the same can’t be said for adults. If you’re missing one or several teeth, we can replace them with dental implants that mimic your natural teeth in every way, right down to the roots. 

With these permanent replacement teeth, you can enjoy your favorite foods and not have to worry about them getting loose. They’re a great way to restore the perfect line of your teeth, and they’re designed to last a lifetime.

Straighten up misaligned teeth

If your teeth aren’t lined up in nice, tidy rows, your smile — and confidence — suffers. To remedy the problem, Dr. Lee and his team offer Invisalign® clear aligners that can help fix:

 

Whatever the alignment issue, odds are we can resolve it with Invisalign aligners. They’re removable, making them a popular option for both adolescents and adults.

Restore and strengthen damaged teeth

If you have a tooth that’s undergone extensive dental work or it’s severely cracked, dental crowns may be right for you. Crowns, whether all-ceramic or all-porcelain, can protect your damaged tooth while blending in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. Whenever possible, Dr. Lee also offers one-visit crowns, cutting down on both time and cost.

Fill in cavities

Was your mouth filled with metal during your first go-around with cavities and fillings? If so, Dr. Lee can correct that problem with composite fillings. Composite fillings are colored to match your teeth so that your fillings do their jobs more quietly.

Planning your smile makeover

When you first sit down with Dr. Lee, he reviews your current oral health and talks to you about your goals and desired results. The cosmetic services we mentioned are just a few examples of a smile makeover, as each makeover is different. 

Dr. Lee and our team work with you on the right combination of cosmetic services to ensure that you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
