5 Popular Smile Makeover Treatments
There is no shame in turning to a dentist for a smile makeover if you do not like the look of your teeth and/or gums. Your dentist knows exactly how to beautify your smile with one or several smile makeover treatments. Below, we provide a look at some smile makeover treatments to give you a better idea as to how we can improve your smile aesthetic.

Porcelain Dental Veneers
Porcelain veneers conceal all sorts of imperfections. If you have cracked, chipped, misaligned, uneven or stained teeth, veneers will mask these aesthetic flaws to provide lovely-looking teeth. The first step is to etch the surface of the teeth to increase surface area. It is crucial to form a stronger bond that allows the dental material to adhere properly.
The next step is to attach the veneers by applying dental cement. You decide which teeth you want to cover with veneers. Whether one tooth is bothering you or if you do not like the look of several teeth, dental veneers will mask the flaws and give you the smile of your dreams.
A tooth that has significant decay or damage will undoubtedly make you self-conscious about your smile. Dental crowns are one of the better smile makeover solutions for such a problem since they serve as a comfortable cap that fits directly over teeth. Once the cap conceals the damaged portion of the tooth, your smile will look quite natural. Furthermore, the dental crown safeguards the tooth against additional injury.
If your smile appears smaller than you prefer, the issue is likely with your gums rather than the size of your teeth. An abundance of gum tissue will conceal portions of teeth to make you appear younger than your true age. An uneven gum line can alter your smile to the point that your teeth look unhealthy or slightly crooked. Gum recontouring removes a bit of the soft tissue to even the gums and provide a beautiful symmetrical smile.
Dental bonding treats all sorts of aesthetic problems with the teeth. This smile makeover treatment is the perfect solution for stained, chipped, misshapen, cracked or gapped teeth. We can even consider adding dental resin to your teeth to match the material to the hue of your natural teeth.
We can sculpt the resin so it appears perfectly natural and conceals cosmetic blemishes. After, we will harden the material with a specialized curing light. The dentist then trims away the remaining material and polishes the teeth.
