How Does a Smile Makeover Work?
Commonly Combined Procedures
Environmental factors, such as dark-colored foods or drinks, can stain tooth enamel and make your smile appear unhealthy. Dentist-supervised teeth whitening can dramatically brighten your smile in just one hour. Dr. Mortensen offers both in-office and take-home whitening options.
If you have small chips, craze lines, or other dental problems that affect the appearance of your smile, then dental bonding could be an option. During this procedure, your dentist applies tooth-colored composite to the affected areas, bringing balance and symmetry back to your smile.
Veneers cover the front surfaces of the teeth, changing their size, shape, or color. Veneers are crafted from medical-grade porcelain, which mimics the translucency of natural teeth for a truly lifelike look.
Crowns are used in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Unlike veneers, crowns cover the entire tooth structure. Therefore, these restorations may be recommended when additional strength and reinforcement is needed. Crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including porcelain.
Missing teeth interfere with your appearance as well as your oral health and function. Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots. They can be restored with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Some patients have excess gingival tissue that covers portions of the natural crowns of the tooth. This can make the teeth appear small and boxy. Our dentist can perform gum reshaping at our Fountain Valley practice to eliminate excess gingival tissue and make the gum line more even.
If you have crooked, rotated, gapped, or misaligned teeth, you may wish to undergo an orthodontic procedure. Invisalign® is a popular alternative to braces that straightens your smile using removable, thermoplastic trays. Best of all, the aligners are clear, so treatment is discreet.
What to Expect during Recovery
Maintaining Your Results
Brush your teeth at least twice every day using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste.
Floss between the Teeth
Clean between the teeth once daily. If you do not like regular floss, ask us about interproximal brushes or dental picks.
Attend Dental Visits
Visit your dentist regularly for exams, cleanings, and preventative care. This is crucial for long-term oral health.
