The Color of Your Teeth

Many things can cause discolored teeth. These range from drinking coffee and tea to genetic predispositions, causing more yellow looking teeth. If your teeth are discolored, multiple options can fix this issue. The most common and conservative procedure is teeth whitening! We are fortunate enough to have the newest teeth bleaching product called Glo Science. This product can make your teeth five shades whiter in only 32 minutes!! Simple teeth whitening procedures can help bring the vibrancy back to your teeth and make you look much younger in an ultra-conservative manner.

The Spacing and Alignment of Your Teeth

If your teeth are crooked, overlap, or have gaps in between them, then we can straighten them and align them if necessary. Invisalign, crowns, bondings, and veneers all help with correcting misaligned teeth. Some are more conservative than others.

Tooth Loss

Missing teeth can dramatically affect the look of your smile. Replacing missing teeth is an essential part of a smile makeover because it improves oral health and aids in facial aesthetics. We use dental implants, bridges, or partial dentures to replace missing teeth.

Uneven, Cracked, and Chipped Teeth

We can improve the balance and harmony of your smile with many procedures. Fixing uneven, cracked, and chipped teeth with cosmetic bonding, veneers, or crowns are simple but specialized processes that can last for years. 

Some Aesthetic Components to a Smile Makeover

  1. The Length of Your Teeth. We can reshape or lengthen your teeth with composite bonding or porcelain veneers to give you a youthful look you crave. 
  2. Your Smile Line. Your smile line is the invisible line that is made by tracing the chewing edges of your upper teeth. This tracing resembles an arc or “smile shape.” This line should mimic or follow the contours of your lower lip in an esthetic manner.
  3. Tooth Proportions. We can assess if your teeth are proportionate, using your tooth front teeth as a central guide. Esthetically, we always look to achieve the “golden ratio” between your front six upper teeth. If this happens, we can maximize our cosmetic results.
  4. Tooth Texture and Shape. If you want a more feminine or masculine look, we can provide you with veneers, crowns or bondings that can do so. Subtle changes in a patient’s smile can speak volumes and perfectly complete the smile makeover.
