First and foremost, Dr. Doctor is concerned about the health of your teeth, your gums and your bite. He wants to ensure that no disease or infection is present and that your occlusion (bite) is sound. The next priority, of course, is the appearance of your teeth. We offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments to enhance your smile. For some people, a combination of these is needed. This combination is called a smile makeover. Just as a makeup artist combines treatments to enhance your best facial features, Dr. Doctor is the artist of the smile makeover in Arlington. Read on to learn more about a smile makeover and the change one can make in your appearance and your self-confidence.
What Can a Smile Makeover Correct?
People sometimes confuse the terms full-mouth reconstruction and smile makeover. Full-mouth reconstruction is meant to restore oral function and may include some cosmetic dentistry treatments. A smile makeover, on the other hand, is done strictly to improve the look of your smile.
A smile makeover can help you overcome a number of cosmetic imperfections including:
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Misshaped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Tooth loss
- Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
- Worn or uneven teeth
How is a Smile Makeover Planned?
When you come to Dr. Doctor to discuss your smile makeover, he’ll consider the individual needs of your smile as well as your smile goals. Don’t hesitate to talk about features that you want to incorporate in your smile. Using this information as well as the visual input from digital x-rays, photographs and impressions, your cosmetic dentist in Arlington will plan your smile makeover.
What Treatments Will My Smile Makeover Include?
That all depends on your situation, of course. A smile makeover can include a combination of several cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments. Each one builds on the progress of the previous treatment, so Dr. Doctor’s plan is sequential. How long it takes to complete the plan will depend on the number and type of services required.
Some of the procedures that Dr. Doctor may include in your smile makeover treatment are:
- Dental implants to replace missing teeth
- Crown lengthening to correct a gummy smile
- Cosmetic bonding to mend a chipped tooth with composite resin material
- Porcelain veneers in Arlington that are bonded to the front side of your teeth in order to conceal flaws
- Teeth whitening to brighten each one of your teeth
