If you discover that you need more than two or three treatments to esthetically improve the appearance of your smile, we describe it as a smile makeover. This is not like a reconstruction because that is something that you must have to retain the health of your teeth and gums.
A smile makeover is a series of treatments you choose to have because you are unhappy with the appearance of your grin. Michael Miyamoto, DDS of Miyamoto Dental Design Suite Inc. in Wailuku, HI has a full range of cosmetic dentistry solutions available in our dental office, and encourage you to contact us if you think you are a candidate for this treatment.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
There are many options from which to choose when you come to our dentist office to discuss a smile makeover. However, the first thing we will assess, is the health of the teeth and gums. Once we are sure you require no intervention, treatment or restorations, we will then begin to look at your bite, alignment and where cosmetic dentistry can help improve matters.
The treatments we might recommend will include:
- Porcelain veneers
- Bonding – This can include the use of inlays/onlays, composite fillings and porcelain crowns
- Dental implants
- Teeth whitening
- Fixed bridges
The goal of any smile makeover is to improve the appearance of the smile, and this means that we may consider:
- How to improve and/or correct your bite
- The best methods for repairing any teeth that are broken, chipped or cracked
- How to improve the sizing, shaping and alignment of one or more teeth
How to address unwanted gaps or spaces
- The best approaches to replacing missing teeth
- Updating any out of date or unattractively done dental restorations or treatments
- How to improve the color of the teeth
Almost anyone is a candidate for some sort of cosmetic dental treatment, but a makeover is a treatment that can require several visits. Fortunately, almost all of the options for improving the appearance of the smile are painless, fast and quite affordable. We can always discuss the different variations in the individual treatments as well.
For example, patients with discolored teeth may find that they are candidates for whitening, porcelain veneers or dental crowns. If they wish to add a level of stability and strength to a discolored tooth, we would suggest the use of veneers or crowns, and if they wanted to address that issue in just a single visit, we have CEREC crowns available too.
