What procedures are used in a typical smile makeover?
There are many cosmetic dentistry procedures that we can use including teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental crowns, and dental implants, among others.
Yellow and stained teeth can be a sign of age since teeth are whiter the younger you are. By eating foods that are artificially colored, drinking coffee, tea, wine, and smoking – teeth can become yellow and severely stained. There are several ways to whiten your teeth at Impressions Dental. You can use an over-the-counter product from a store or at-home or in-office treatment from the R. Ben Alexander, DDS dental team. We recommend a Venus whitening procedure that can comfortably whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single office visit. For those that would prefer to whiten their teeth on their own schedule, an at-home treatment may be better. Our team will design custom trays and give you prescription strength whitening gel for the best results.
Patients with severely stained or damaged teeth can have dental veneers placed in order to improve their smile. Dr. Alexander is a veneers dentist and creates natural-looking dental veneers that can transform ordinary smiles into something truly stunning. In fact, many Hollywood stars have used veneers to improve their smile. They can be used to close gaps in between teeth, make teeth even in length, cover dark stains, restore teeth that have been cracked or chipped, and straighten your smile. For a less invasive procedure that achieves similar results, many patients opt for Dental Lumineers.
When teeth are more severely damaged or broken, a dental crown is often a better solution for transforming its appearance and functionality. A crown can be made in an all-ceramic or all-porcelain material that surrounds the tooth entirely. Dental crowns can accomplish similar goals to veneers. They can make teeth even, close gaps, cover stains, and restore cracked or chipped teeth. The major difference is that the crown surrounds the entire tooth, so there is additional stability that comes with this procedure.
Our patients trust Dr. Alexander and our staff to replace their missing teeth in a way that looks completely natural. Dental implants are an excellent way to restore missing teeth because once the procedure is completed you can enjoy all of your favorite activities and foods without worrying about the tooth falling out or becoming loose. In similar procedures, as with dentures, teeth can become loose during everyday activities. Dental implants are so durable that you cannot tell the difference between an implant and natural teeth.
