Repairing Your Smile with a Makeover

Some problems with your smile just can’t be repaired with a general trip to the dentist. Bigger issues that affect your confidence in addition to your oral health may mean it’s time for a smile makeover. Cosmetic dentists come to the rescue to provide amazing results in repairing problems with smiles.

What types of procedures are possible?
A cosmetic dentist can offer you a variety of solutions for improving your smile. Some of the most common procedures include:
• Teeth whitening
• Veneers to hide tooth imperfections
• Implants to replace missing teeth
• Gum or tooth contouring
• Bonding to correct problems like chips
• Orthodontics to realign teeth and jaws

How much time is involved in getting a smile makeover?
Of course it depends on the type of improvements that you require, but you can expect most cosmetic dental procedures to require more than one office visit to complete. Once you begin any procedure, it’s important to see the treatment through until completion for the safest and most appealing results.

What should I look for in a dentist?
Remember that a smile makeover may best be performed by a cosmetic dentist rather than a general dentist. Shop around for one who meets your specific needs. Consider the dentist’s training and experience in the procedures you’re interested in, and look for a dentist certified with the American Dental Association. Also make sure that you’re comfortable with the other office technicians and staff, as well as the office location and amenities.
