Dentist Seattle: Smile Makeover
There are many people who want a better smile. Uneven teeth, gaps between the teeth, chipped or broken teeth, missing teeth, and tooth discoloration are some of the common bothersome issues. Fortunately, there are treatments available for all of these problems. When a dentist uses multiple cosmetic dentistry treatments to achieve a patient’s ideal smile, it’s known as a smile makeover.
If you want to achieve truly dramatic results, you may be an excellent candidate for a smile makeover.
What is a smile makeover in Seattle?
A smile makeover is a personalized set of cosmetic procedures. You’ll consult with your dentist in Seattle to determine exactly which treatments you’ll need to get the smile you desire. He’ll take X-rays and photos to plan your personalized treatment. Here are some of the most common procedures that can be included in a smile makeover.
Surface stains build up on almost everyone’s teeth over time. Foods and beverages, like coffee, tea, and curry, cause these stains. Smoking and certain medications can also contribute. Part of the creation of a great smile is removing these surface stains. While over-the-counter teeth whitening kits can have some effect, professional teeth whitening by your dentist in Seattle will create the best result.
For those with a chipped or broken tooth, teeth that are too small, small gaps between the teeth, or other similar problems, bonding can help to fix this problem. With bonding, your dentist in Seattle adds composite resin (the same tooth-colored material that’s used for fillings) to a tooth to change its apparent size or shape.
For those with problems with multiple teeth, such as severe discoloration, alignment problems that are primarily cosmetic in nature, teeth that are too small, multiple damaged teeth, or other similar problems, veneers may be helpful. These are thin white porcelain shells that your dentist in Seattle affixes to the front of your teeth, to give the appearance of a perfect mouth full of pearly whites.
Laser Gum Reshaping
While the appearance of the teeth is an important component of a beautiful smile, the appearance of the gums can also have a major impact. Some people have excess gum tissue, which makes the teeth appear too small. Others have uneven gums, creating an asymmetrical smile. With laser gum reshaping, your dentist in Seattle uses a laser to remove excess gum tissue with minimal discomfort, creating the right gum shape for your teeth and smile.
