Smile Makeover Q & A
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover enhances the appearance and function of your smile through two or more cosmetic treatments. Smile makeovers are meant for people with more than one cosmetic issue, such as chipped teeth and tooth discoloration or gapped and crooked teeth.
What makes Personalee Dental unique is that the practice partners with Digital Smile Design to determine the right treatments for you. DSD is a treatment planning protocol that combines digital photos and videography to analyze your smile and facial structure.
That individualized analysis allows Dr. Lee and the team to design your smile makeover digitally with treatments that address your exact cosmetic concerns and needs.
What can a smile makeover treat?
Smile makeovers focus on improving the appearance of your smile. However, addressing these imperfections can also restore your tooth function by correcting imbalances in your bite.
Consider a smile makeover at Personalee Dental if you have two or more of the following dental concerns:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked or broken teeth
- A gummy smile
- Tooth discoloration
- Teeth worn from grinding
- Misshapen teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Missing teeth
After a thorough dental exam, Dr. Lee and the team can determine which cosmetic treatments can improve your smile.
What is included in a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a personalized treatment. Cosmetic treatments that may be included in your individualized plan include:
Dr. Lee and the team offer Zoom!® in-office teeth whitening to remove up to eight shades of tooth stains in as little as one hour. Zoom combines a peroxide-based whitening solution with LED light technology to provide dramatic results.
If you have a small chip, crack, or gap in your teeth, composite bonding is a simple solution to improve your smile. The treatment uses composite resin to fill in unwanted spaces. After applying each layer, Dr. Lee hardens it with a special curing light.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain applied to the surface of damaged, discolored, or misshapen teeth. They enhance the size, shape, or color of your teeth to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over the visible portion of your tooth. It can restore a damaged tooth to its natural shape and size. Crowns also protect weak teeth from additional damage.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. They bond to your jawbone and hold your replacement teeth in place if you have missing teeth.
