When it comes to dental work, most of us just want one thing: a killer smile with healthy teeth. Unfortunately, that dream is too often easier said than done for many of us.
But, if your smile isn’t what you want it to be, all hope is not lost. You may be a great candidate for a smile makeover, which can transform the physical appearance of your smile.
At Portrait Dental, Dr. Minh Nguyen is an expert at providing smile makeovers for both men and women. Here’s how it works:
Who’s a good candidate for a smile makeover?
If you just need a crown or veneer to correct a minor cosmetic issue or if your teeth just need to be whitened a bit, you’re better off getting an individual treatment rather than opting for a full smile makeover.
If, however, you need a combination of dental treatments to correct multiple issues, you’re a great candidate for a complete smile makeover. Here are a few of the common problems a makeover can address:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Teeth with gaps or uneven spacing between them
- Missing teeth
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
- Bite problems
At Portrait Dental, we offer custom smile makeovers designed to address whatever cosmetic and functional issues you’re facing. The key is to start with an overall master plan and then work out each treatment from there.
What does a smile makeover include?
As he builds your smile makeover plan, Dr. Nguyen takes into account all aspects of your facial appearance, including skin tone, hair color, gums, lips, and teeth. He may also take X-rays, and he’ll evaluate your teeth, gums, bite patterns, teeth alignment and color, and more. He’ll also listen to your concerns about your smile, and then he’ll put together an action plan to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Here are a few of the services a smile makeover could include:
Dr. Nguyen can attach these custom porcelain shells to the front of your teeth to restore symmetry to your smile by giving you teeth that are the same size, shape, and color.
If your teeth are dingy or discolored from smoking, coffee, or other stain-causing substances, we can eradicate the stains and make your teeth sparkling white again.
Dental bonding uses a composite resin to fill in spaces where teeth are chipped, cracked, or misshapen. It may also be used to fill in a gap in your smile.
If you’re missing a tooth, a dental implant is a great solution to replace it. A small metal post is implanted in your jawbone to replace the root of your tooth, and then a crown is added on top that is the same size, shape, and color of the missing tooth. No one will be able to tell the difference!
Now that you’ve seen how easy the process is to completely transform your smile, there’s no real reason to wait any longer. Just contact Portrait Dental to schedule your smile makeover consultation. Feel free to call the office, or fill out the online appointment request form, and we’ll be in touch!
