Popular Smile Makeover Treatments
By Andrew Mortensen, DDS on August 28, 2012
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, you may benefit from a smile makeover. A smile makeover is a treatment plan consisting of one or more cosmetic or restorative procedures to enhance the appearance of your smile. Patients with dental imperfections ranging from minor to more severe can benefit from a smile makeover. Whether you have only one or two teeth in need of treatment, or you require more comprehensive treatment, we can provide an aesthetically pleasing solution.
We offer our Fountain Valley smile makeover patients a wide range of treatments, including teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. Because your smile is unique to you, we will customize a treatment plan to your individual needs and goals. While we cannot determine which treatments will be included in your smile makeover without a thorough exam and consultation, smile makeovers may be used to address many dental issues, including cracked teeth, discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, missing teeth, and teeth damaged by decay. Below are some of the most popular smile makeover treatments offered at our Fountain Valley dentistry practice.
One of the easiest ways to revitalize your smile is through teeth whitening. Drinking wine, tea, and coffee can cause discoloration and staining to occur in the surfaces of the teeth. Even the natural aging process can cause the teeth to become discolored. Through teeth whitening, we can erase years’ worth of discoloration to reveal a brighter, whiter smile. Our in-office and at-home teeth whitening options provide patients with an effective and pain-free way to achieve a white smile.
Zoom!2® teeth whitening: Through the Zoom!2® teeth whitening system, we can dramatically whiten the smiles of our patients in one session. The Zoom!2® teeth whitening system offers patients an effective, pain-free way to brighten their smiles.
At-home teeth whitening: As an alternative to the Zoom!2® teeth whitening system, Fountain Valley cosmetic dentist Andrew G. Mortensen offers his patients at-home teeth whitening. Patients who desire to whiten their smiles gradually and from the comfort of their own homes may benefit from at-home teeth whitening.
Porcelain veneers are often included in smile makeovers. Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth to improve their appearance. They offer patients a way to completely change their smiles while still achieving natural-looking results. They can be used to improve the appearance of misshapen teeth, chipped teeth, discolored teeth, and crooked teeth, as well as to close gaps between the teeth.
Smile makeover patients experiencing dental flaws such as decayed, misshaped, discolored, or cracked teeth may benefit from dental crowns. For our patients in Fountain Valley, dental crowns can restore the function, health, and aesthetics of their smiles. Dental crowns may be used to protect teeth that are at risk of cracking or breaking, to hold cracked teeth together, to protect weakened teeth, to cover discolored or misshaped teeth, and even to top a dental implant.
