Smile Makeover: 4 Popular Treatment Options

Smile Makeover Miami Beach, FL

When it comes to getting a smile makeover, a visit to the dentist’s office is important. There, you can get different cosmetic and restorative treatment options that can make your smile look better. With the technology, materials, and devices available today, you have many different options to make your enhanced smile look natural. In this article, you will learn about common treatment options for a smile makeover.

Popular smile makeover treatments

Common options that a dentist might suggest for a smile makeover procedure include the following.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening treatment is probably the most common cosmetic treatment, based on a universal desire to have white teeth. Many people often turn to DIY whitening options, like toothpaste, gels, and strips, to remove stains on their teeth. The issue is that these at-home whitening products do not always bring about the desired result.

Patients can undergo professional teeth whitening at the dental office. The procedure, which often takes about an hour, can produce dramatic results and make the teeth up to eight shades whiter than their current color. It is a safe option because the dentist can carefully control the concentration of the whitening agent. They can also provide professional at-home whitening kits. With this option, patients can whiten their teeth by wearing a tray filled with a whitening solution for a few hours daily until the desired result is achieved.

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are also common among people seeking a smile transformation with a smile makeover. Veneers are tooth-shaped, ultra-thin porcelain "shells" that are bonded to the front side of teeth to cover imperfections and improve the teeth’s aesthetics. They can work for permanent teeth discoloration, chipped or cracked teeth, and minor gaps between teeth. Patients can choose to have multiple veneers placed on their teeth to change their smile’s appearance.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are normally used as a restorative dental treatment. They effectively restore the structure and function of badly damaged teeth caused by injury or extreme decay. However, restoring a damaged tooth with crowns also has aesthetic benefits because the materials used are natural-looking. The dentist can customize the color and shape of the crown to fit in with the remaining teeth. Also, crowns can be used to hide defects on the teeth or increase their length.

Composite bonding

If there are minor imperfections in one's smile, dental bonding is a simple yet effective way to hide these and make the teeth look better. The dentist can hide chips, cracks, stains, and small gaps with composite material. The composite resin is customizable to look like the teeth's natural color, so most people will not be able to tell treated teeth apart from natural teeth. Composite is also used to repair a decayed tooth or replace old amalgam fillings.

Book an appointment

If you are concerned about your smile’s appearance and find yourself smiling less, then a smile makeover may be the way to go. Contact the dental office to book an appointment for a consultation. There, the dentist will be able to discuss potential options with you.
