A physical examination will be needed to look for areas of concern or deterioration and to prepare a detailed treatment plan and comprehensive costing schedule.
Next, a professional scale and polish is performed before impressions are taken of your teeth for a ‘wax up’ model of your existing teeth.
A dental hygienist will examine your gums during your clean to ensure they are clean and healthy in readiness for your smile makeover.
At your next visit, your dentist will sit with you and present your wax mock up. This model is a representation of what your smile could look like. A wonderful opportunity to see what is possible and discuss any modifications or changes you would like made.
Digital Smile Design allows you to see the proposed teeth, in your mouth, as if you have completed treatment.
COSMETIC TREATMENT OPTIONS
Teeth Whitening: A relatively inexpensive way to brighten your smile, whitening teeth can be accomplished at home or in the dentist's chair. There are many products and methods from which to choose.
Composite Bonding: A tooth-colored composite resin attached to the teeth can improve the appearance and strength of chipped teeth. These procedures require very little preparation (drilling) of the tooth.
Porcelain & Composite Veneers: Designed to substitute for tooth enamel, veneers are hard, thin shells of tooth-colored material that can mask a variety of dental imperfections.
Porcelain Crowns: heavily damaged teeth can be covered with natural-looking porcelain crowns, which replace more natural tooth structure than veneers.
Porcelain Bridgework: A missing tooth can be replaced with porcelain bridgework that is attached to the natural teeth on either side of the space.
Dental Implants: Usually made of titanium, an implant is used to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. The implant is fitted with a crown to create a natural-looking replacement.
Inlays & Onlays: In certain cases, fillings can be fabricated from porcelain or composite materials in a dental laboratory to more closely match the color of a tooth. An inlay will incorporate the pits and fissures of a tooth, mainly encompassing the chewing surface between the cusps. An onlay will involve one or more cusps being covered.
Tooth-Colored Fillings: Gone are the days when a filling has to be obvious and unsightly. Tooth-colored fillings are barely noticeable.
Clear Orthodontic Aligners: Many adults, as well as some teenagers, are opting for clear orthodontic aligners, instead of metal braces, to straighten their teeth
Cosmetic Gum Surgery: Minor surgery can reshape gum tissue to give it a more leveled appearance.
Tooth Contouring & Reshaping: Cosmetic dentists can use a drill or laser to smooth out or reshape teeth.
You will be given a treatment proposal and all details of your proposed treatment will be discussed in full with the treatment coordinator. Your treatment plan is unique. It is tailored to your specific cosmetic and functional needs.
