Having a bright, dazzling smile can be a great way to be more confident around others. But few people are born with a perfect smile, and many patients come in to see our Los Angeles smile makeover expert with multiple problems. Virtually any dentist will be able to correct cosmetic problems, but make sure to do your research to find a dentist that has experience fixing the issues you suffer from.
A smile makeover is comprised of several cosmetic procedures that can include:
• Teeth whitening
• Dental fillings
• Dental crowns
• Dental implants
• Dental bridges
• Porcelain veneers
• Gum contouring or reshaping
All of these procedures can be performed to correct the shape, size, and color of your teeth. But before any procedure can be performed, our dentist will need to examine your teeth and gums to make sure you do not suffer from any tooth decay or gum disease. If you do, those problems will need to be corrected before focusing on any cosmetic problems. Some of the issues that could warrant a smile makeover include:
• Discolorations or stains
• Damaged, chipped, or cracked teeth
• Missing teeth
• Unhealthy gums
• Undesirable tooth-to-gum ratio
After your smile makeover is complete, our dentist will give you instructions on how to care for your new smile.
