Smile Makeover Procedure
A smile makeover is a collection of cosmetic dentistry treatments that improve the overall quality of your teeth and gums, helping you achieve an attractive smile. The cosmetic dentist carefully examines your teeth, discusses your concerns and goals, and curates the ideal smile makeover treatment plan just for you. All smile makeover procedures are different because everyone has different goals, concerns, and expectations. However, some of the most popular smile makeover procedures include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, Invisalign aligners, porcelain crowns, and cosmetic gum reshaping. Professional teeth whitening is suitable for patients with stained or discolored teeth. Invisalign aligners are meant for crooked or misaligned teeth. Porcelain veneers address all cosmetic concerns at once, including intrinsically discolored teeth and misalignment. And cosmetic gum reshaping is suitable for patients with a gummy smile. URBN Dental is one of the most reliable dental clinics for cosmetic treatments and smile makeover procedures. Please schedule your smile makeover near me in Uptown Houston, Midtown Houston, or Montrose.
What’s a cosmetic smile makeover?
A cosmetic smile makeover is a highly customized collection of cosmetic treatments to improve your smile. A smile makeover treatment is basically a dental makeover wherein all of your cosmetic concerns are addressed to help you achieve a brilliant smile. The full teeth makeover may address several cosmetic concerns, such as teeth discoloration, crooked teeth, misaligned teeth, a gummy smile, and more.
What’s included in a smile makeover?
Your complete smile makeover treatment starts with a personalized consultation with the cosmetic dentist. The cosmetic dentist examines your teeth, discusses your goals and concerns, and determines the ideal means of achieving your goals. The dentist will highlight the pros and cons of all the smile makeover procedures, such as teeth whitening, clear aligners, and porcelain veneers, to help you make an informed decision.
Furthermore, our cosmetic dentists use visualization tools that provide a 3D image of your smile after the chosen smile makeover procedures. Once you approve of the smile makeover treatment plan, your procedures can begin. Depending on the specific procedures involved, your smile makeover may involve multiple sessions over several weeks or months. Please contact your nearest smile makeover dentist to discuss your options.
What are the most common smile makeover procedures?
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Everyone wants bright teeth without stains and discoloration. However, despite our best efforts, our teeth eventually gather stains that make them look yellowed. That’s because the enamel contains pores that trap stains, making your teeth eventually look yellow. The rate of discoloration increases if you consume lots of coffee and tea or smoke regularly.
Professional teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure used to brighten your smile. The dentist applies a whitening gel on your teeth, made of hydrogen peroxide. Next, the dentist uses a special light to catalyze the bleaching agent, making it remove all the surface stains from your teeth. The bleaching agent eliminates the stains, eventually making your teeth look bright and white. One laser teeth whitening session brightens your smile by up to 8 shades.
Invisalign is the ideal orthodontic treatment for patients with crooked or misaligned teeth. Traditional braces aren’t suitable for smile makeovers because they’re extremely visible and cause more self-consciousness than crooked teeth. However, Invisalign braces are made of clear thermoplastic, so they’re almost invisible to the naked eye. The treatment usually lasts for 6 to 18 months.
Invisalign aligners are clear thermoplastic aligners that apply pressure on your teeth, moving them in the desired direction. Each aligner moves your teeth a little closer towards optimal alignment, so you have to keep changing your aligners every two weeks. Invisalign aligners are also removable, so you can take them off while eating. The only problem is that Invisalign treatments last for several months.
Porcelain veneers, also known as instant orthodontics, are ideal for those who want to conceal all cosmetic concerns at once. Veneers are thin, tooth-colored, and tooth-shaped porcelain chips attached to the front face of your teeth. They conceal all of your cosmetic problems, instantly enhancing the external appearance of your teeth.
Porcelain is the ideal material for veneers because it resembles the texture and properties of enamel, thereby looking completely natural. The dentist can also choose the ideal shade for your porcelain veneers. As such, porcelain veneers can also be used as a substitute for teeth whitening and Invisalign aligners. And the best part is that you don’t need regular treatments, nor do you have to wait for several months.
At URBN Dental, we offer FREE smile makeover consultations.
Cosmetic gum reshaping is ideal for patients with a gummy smile or those with uneven gum tissues because of a history of periodontitis. The dentist uses a special laser device to reshape the gum tissues, helping you achieve the ideal proportion of teeth and gums while smiling. This can increase your confidence and help you smile comfortably.
