Smile Makeovers

Woman smilingYour smile is very important. It is the first thing that people notice when they see you. How your smile looks can make a major impact on how others see you. Imperfections in your smile can decrease the quality of your smile, causing others to get the wrong impression. An imperfect smile can also impact your confidence. At Dental Arts of Frederick, we can improve the quality of your smile with a smile makeover.

What Exactly is a Smile Makeover?

There are several different factors that go into creating the perfect smile. There are also several different issues that can impact its quality as well as your confidence. Common issues that can affect your smile include:
•  Chips and cracks in your teeth.
•  Tooth discoloration.
•  Spacing issues.
•  Overlapping of your teeth.
•  Teeth that are shaped oddly.
•  Teeth that are smaller than the rest.
•  Excess gum tissue.
•  Gum recession.

A smile makeover is a treatment that is performed to improve the overall quality of your smile. Everyone has different needs. The issues affecting your smile may be vastly different from the issues affecting someone else. A smile makeover is a customizable treatment. We can choose the treatments that will help you to achieve your ideal smile.

What Procedures are Used in a Smile Makeover?

To determine the treatments you need, a consultation is needed. During your consultation, we look over your teeth and your gums, assessing your smile. Your teeth are looked over for damage, decay, wear, and other issues. Your gums are assessed for gum disease and gum recession. We also note areas of excess gum tissue. We also discuss your specific concerns. This enables us to figure out exactly the treatments you need to achieve your perfect smile and in which order your treatments need to be performed.

Treatments that may be involved in a smile makeover include:
•  Teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening eliminates stains and discoloration from your teeth, brightening your smile.
•  Composite fillings. Composite is a tooth-colored material that can be used to treat cavities affecting your front teeth.
•  Porcelain inlays and onlays. Inlays and onlays treat cavities affecting the chewing surfaces of your molars.
•  Composite bonding. Bonding can treat minor issues such as small chips or cracks.
•  Porcelain veneers. Veneers are an alternative to bonding. They are small shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth.
•  Ceramic crowns. Crowns treat more significantly damaged teeth. They encase the whole tooth, providing it with protection. Ceramic also provides a perfectly realistic restoration.
•  Dental implants. Dental implants provide a perfectly realistic restoration following tooth loss. They are a long-term solution to tooth loss.
•  Invisalign®. Invisalign is a near-invisible orthodontic treatment that corrects crooked teeth.
•  Gum grafting. Gum grafting helps to restore a healthy, aesthetic gumline following gum recession.
•  Aesthetic gum lift. An aesthetic gum lift eliminates excess gum tissue. It is also known as a crown lengthening.

Am I a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?

If you are unhappy with how your smile looks, you may be a candidate for a smile makeover. It is important that you have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. You will need to be healthy before you can undergo treatment. This includes good overall health as well as good oral health. A thorough consultation will help to determine if a smile makeover is right for you.
