Smile makeovers seem simple because they’re seen as luxuries. At All Smiles Dental Care in Hazlet, NJ, however, a lot of effort is put into these makeovers. It’s not as easy as replacing a missing tooth or covering up a crooked one. The way all your teeth look is considered because symmetry and proportions are very important.
At All Smiles Dental Care, we’ll first create an image or model to display potential results to you. Once we agree on something, work can then begin. We have many procedures that can be used for cosmetic purposes. How many we use depends on your situation and what you want.
Dental imaging technology is used to create a virtual image of what your teeth look like now and what they would look like after we’re done. If you see something that you don’t like, we can make the changes on the computer before we start working.
We might also rely on models using impressions of your teeth to create 3D models of your oral cavity. Both options are available.
Dental implants are great for replacing missing teeth with false ones. A titanium screw is attached to your jawbone, and then we apply the false tooth to the screw. If taken care of properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Composite bonding made of plastic or resin has many purposes. We can use it to fix cracked and chipped teeth. Its color is modified to match that of your teeth so that people can’t tell the difference between them.
Veneers are used for teeth with very deep stains, crooked teeth, and large gaps. They’re usually made from porcelain, which looks like natural teeth and is very durable.
Teeth whitening is a common procedure that can be done in-office for rapid results. Keep in mind that teeth whitening can’t remove stains from false teeth, though, so they might need to be replaced.
As you can see, there are many steps involved in smile makeovers. It can take some time and a few visits, but the results are worth it.
