Things You Might Do to Makeover Your Smile

February 14, 2020

Some of the concerns you might face regarding your smile, especially its appearance, can often develop several at a time, which might make improving your smile seem difficult. For example, if your teeth were just stained, then a simple teeth-whitening treatment may be all you need to improve your smile. However, if one or more teeth are chipped, misshapen, lightly out of alignment, or more, then your smile makeover plan could require more than one treatment. With the goal of making your smile improvement as convenient and minimally invasive as possible, we can customize your smile makeover using personalized, conservative cosmetic treatments designed just for you.

Fixing little chips and cracks in your teeth

Next to stains on the surfaces of your teeth, tiny chips in a tooth’s surface are also one of the more common cosmetic smile concerns. Unfortunately, these small blemishes in your tooth structure won’t heal over time, and though they may seem minor, they can also pose a threat to your oral health if they’re allowed to get worse. Treatment such as tooth bonding can help rebuild the tooth structure and improve the appearance of your teeth without any changes to the structure itself. If you have multiple chipped teeth, then porcelain veneers might be a more conservative option for improving them all at once.

Fixing the overall contour of your smile

A chipped tooth might not have a dramatic impact on your smile’s appearance, but some of the concerns that do also involve relatively minor concerns with your tooth structure. For example, teeth that have edges that extend over the structure of another tooth, or that seem too small next to those around it, can make your entire smile seem crooked and in need of orthodontic treatment. However, depending on the specific issue that affects your smile’s contour, we may be able to improve it without orthodontics by artistically recontouring your smile. This can include a combination of treatments, such as tooth contouring, gum contouring, and/or the use of one or more porcelain veneers.

Fixing all of your smile concerns at once

The goal of a conservative smile makeover isn’t just to improve your smile’s appearance, but also to help preserve your healthy, natural tooth structure by keeping the treatment process minimally invasive. The more issues you have to address with your smile’s appearance, the more important it is to customize a more conservative smile makeover plan. Instead of trying to address a single concern at a time, we’ll take your oral health, bite function, and smile’s appearance all into consideration to design a plan that optimizes the results of each treatment.
