Are You a Smile Makeover Candidate?
Updated: Aug 27, 2019
In today’s society, beauty is important. An attractive smile can enhance your overall appearance and theres no doubt the confidence of a great smile can positively improve your personal and professional relationships. While the main priority for our team at Aesthetic Smiles is to ensure your overall oral health; we make every effort to enhance your smile so the benefits of our procedures last a lifetime.
Dr. Maryam Motlagh and her team at Aesthetic Smiles offer customized smile makeover treatment plans that use a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve the appearance of your smile. Generally, patients looking to have a smile makeover already have good oral health and are just unhappy with their smile or any cosmetic dental flaws.
The Process and What We Look For:
Healthy Teeth and Gums
To determine which patients are right for a smile makeover, we take X-rays and examine your teeth and gums to ensure that they are free of infection or other dental problems. If any problem areas are identifed we will need to treat these conditions before moving forward with a smile makeover treatment.
Aesthetic Dental Imperfections
If you have any of the following dental imperfections, you may be a good candidate for a smile makeover.
Tooth discoloration: Tooth discoloration can be reduced with teeth whitening, or we can mask stains with porcelain veneers or dental bonding.
Uneven gum line or gummy smile: We can perform the laser gum contouring procedure to reduce the amount of gum tissue that shows when you smile, or to create a more symmetrical gum line.
Mis-shaped teeth: If certain teeth are too small in proportion to surrounding teeth, or are otherwise misshaped, we can use porcelain veneers or dental crowns to create a more uniform appearance.
Crooked teeth: Crooked teeth can be treated with orthodontic treatment such as Invisalign®. In some cases, we may be able to create an illusion of straight teeth with porcelain veneers.
Gapped teeth: Gaps between the teeth can be filled in with porcelain veneers or dental bonding, or orthodontic treatment can be performed to shift the teeth and bring them closer together.
