Discover exactly what goes into a smile makeover to find out if it’s right for you.
When you think about makeovers, you might think about getting a haircut or completely changing your wardrobe, but now you can also get a smile makeover from one of our Hillsborough, NJ family dentists. Through the use of one of more cosmetic procedures, we can help to give you a brand new smile. Find out more about the process if you choose to get a smile makeover.
What goes into getting a smile makeover?
Before your treatment can even begin it’s important that we examine your smile to make sure your smile is healthy enough for cosmetic treatment. We will also want to discuss your treatment goals so we know what issues you want to address and how we can best handle them. Some things a smile makeover will take into consideration include:
- The shape and appearance of your face
- The color, length, shape and size of your teeth
- Gum tissue
- The shape of your lips
What makes smile makeovers so ideal is that they are tailored differently for every individual. Whatever you don’t like about your smile and wish to change our Hillsborough dentist is here to make sure you finally achieve the perfect smile. Issues to consider include:
Tooth color: If you have unsightly metal fillings, we can easily replace them with tooth-colored ones. If you have stained or yellowing teeth we can often brighten them with one in-office whitening session. If stains are caused by internal damage or certain medications and won’t respond as well to whitening, we can also apply dental veneers to give you a whiter smile.
Alignment issues: Do you have gaps between teeth? Are your teeth crooked or crowded? There are several options available, from non-invasive options like dental bonding (which is great for covering small spaces) to Invisalign aligners for straightening out these issues to dental veneers (for patients wanting a straighter more attractive smile without needing braces).
Tooth loss: Gaps where teeth used to be can cause quite the toll on your smile’s appearance. Fortunately, we offer everything from dentures to bridges to dental implants to treat a single missing tooth to replacing a whole set of teeth.
Aesthetics: Other issues such as chips, cracks and misshapen teeth, as well as gummy smiles, can also make your smile look uneven. Cosmetic dentistry offers gum recontouring, and dental bonding and veneers to hide or repair these imperfections.
