What Does a Smile Makeover Involve?
Implants: Implants are artificial tooth roots that support ceramic crowns. They replace missing teeth that have been extracted or lost due to issues like severe decay, external trauma, infections, or gum disease. The titanium implant together with the durable artificial tooth is the ideal replacement for a lost tooth.
Crowns: Dental crowns are cap-like dental appliances placed on teeth that are weak, damaged, or worn out. They aesthetically and structurally restore damaged teeth and prevent them from disintegrating. Crowns are made from tooth-colored materials like ceramic and are customizable so that they look exactly like natural teeth.
Bridges: Bridges are replacements for missing teeth that are also made from ceramic. They do not require surgery to be placed. Instead, they are held in place by crowns on either side. A dental bridge will help you bite, chew, and smile just like before.
Dentures: Dentures replace a series of missing teeth. They can be either complete or partial, depending on how many teeth need to be replaced, and are removable.
Veneers: Veneers are wafer-thin restorations applied to the front surface of teeth to fix surface imperfections. They are typically used to restore cracked, broken, chipped, discolored, or badly worn out teeth.
Fillings, Inlays, and Onlays: Fillings are made from ceramic or composite materials and are used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay. Inlays are custom restorations that are pre-fabricated and used as alternatives to fillings. Onlays are typically used to restore teeth with worn-out biting surfaces.
Teeth whitening:Teeth tend to stain due to the consumption of colored foods and beverages, chewing tobacco, smoking cigarettes, and improper brushing. Teeth whitening can eliminate these stains and give you a sparkling white smile. We offer in-office, at-home customized trays, and laser teeth whitening options.
