Smile Makeovers At VP Dental
What Is A Smile Makeover?
No one is born with a perfect smile, which is why smile makeovers by a cosmetic dentist are often necessary to have unusually straight, attractive, white teeth. A smile makeover goes beyond responding to dental problems as they arise. A smile makeover is a comprehensive plan that’s uniquely suited to your own facial features and aesthetic preferences.
Dr. Preston and our caring team in Raleigh focus on transforming ordinary smiles into brilliant, stunning smiles through our smile makeover process. Regardless of what your smile looks like today, we are confident that we can improve your smiles.
What Is Included in a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover combines a variety of cosmetic dental procedures, including:
There are many different ways to whiten your teeth. Our dentists recommend using simple whitening trays because of the quality of whitening and the low cost compared with other methods, as well as the convenience of being able to do it at home.
Veneers are a dependable, affordable solution to imperfect smiles. They are thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that cover your natural teeth. Long-lasting and natural-looking, they can protect your teeth from further damage and give you the beautiful smile you desire.
Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin (a type of durable plastic) is applied to the tooth and hardened with a special light, which ultimately “bonds” the material to the tooth to restore or improve a person’s smile. Bonding is done to repair a decayed, chipped, fractured, discolored tooth.
Crowns are made from different types of material. Early in dentistry, they were made from metals like stainless steel. Here at Ash & Roberts, DDS, we use porcelain crowns. The reason that we recommend porcelain is because of its strength and cosmetic appeal. Porcelain provides a better color match than other materials. It is also better for those who have metal allergies.
While some minor alignment issues or gaps between teeth can be corrected with veneers or dental bonding, problems like crowding or a bad bite will likely need orthodontic treatment to correct. We can treat orthodontic problems at VP Dental with Invisalign or lingual braces, so nobody will even notice you’re receiving your treatment until they spot your straighter teeth!
What Is The First Step?
Communication is vitally important in the smile makeover process, which is why at the first consultation we will listen intently to what you want to accomplish. We want to know what you would like and what you want for your smile. Once you’ve shared with us your goals, we will prepare a plan for treatment. Cosmetic dentistry offers an amazing array of lifelike tooth restorations and treatments.
