What should you know about a smile makeover?
A smile makeover refers to an array of several cosmetic dental treatments that enhance your smile aesthetics. The procedure aims to improve your facial appearance, gum tissue, gums, and dentition. Before developing a treatment plan, Dr. Wank examines your skin tone, facial appearance, and hair color. He also checks the shape of your teeth and the appearance of your lips and gums to ensure that the smile makeover leaves you confident about your appearance.
During your first appointment, Dr. Wank discusses your smile goals and the factors you would like to change about your smile. He considers all these factors when creating your treatment plan.
What treatments transform your smile?
To achieve an aesthetically pleasing smile, the team works closely with you in choosing the most appropriate treatments. Dr. Wank performs an oral screening to assess the health of your oral cavity before recommending a combination of cosmetic dental treatments. Your doctor may also review your health history and enquire about the medications you may be on to prevent complications. If severe tooth decay or chipped or cracked teeth affect your smile’s appearance, Dr. Wank may recommend a crown. This prosthetic restores the original shape, strength, and functioning of your tooth while preventing further damage. Other treatments you may benefit from include:
Your provider may suggest a bridge if you have a missing tooth due to trauma or extraction. The bridge fills the gap in your smile and prevents bone loss and gum recession.
A dental implant refers to sturdy metal posts that replace damaged tooth roots. After implant surgery, the implant fuses with your jaw bone creating a sturdy foundation for implant-supported dentures, bridges, or crowns. The specialists offer All-On-4 dental implants and traditional implants, depending on your needs and preferences.
As you age, your enamel wears, exposing your yellow dentine. Beverages such as tea and coffee may also dull your smile. Dr. Wank may recommend teeth whitening using hydrogen peroxide gel to eliminate the stains and brighten your smile.
Cosmetic gum contouring
Having a gummy smile may make you smile less because of low self-esteem. Your provider repairs this by conducting cosmetic gum contouring to eliminate excess gum tissue and enhance your smile.
If you have a misaligned jaw or crowded teeth, your dentist may suggest orthodontic treatment using Invisalign. This procedure involves a set of clear, plastic mouthpieces to improve your dentition and jaw alignment.
