How Does a Smile Makeover Work?

Commonly Combined Procedures

When it comes to smile makeovers, no two treatment plans are the same. Because each patient brings his or her own unique goals to the table, each plan is tailored accordingly. Here are some of the most common cosmetic services included in a smile makeover at our Fountain Valley dental practice:

Teeth Whitening

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.

Dental Bonding

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.

Learn More

Porcelain Veneers

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.

Learn More

Dental Crowns

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.

Learn More

Dental Implants

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.

Learn More

Gum Reshaping

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.

Learn More

Invisalign

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

Are You Enhancing Your Teeth?

Minimally invasive services such as dental bonding or the placement of veneers or crowns generally require zero downtime. While you may experience some slight sensitivity, you should be able to resume normal activities immediately.

Are You Improving Your Gums?

Laser gum contouring does not typically require downtime, but it can take a few days for the area to heal. We encourage patients to eat soft foods and avoid foods with small seeds to reduce post-operative discomfort.

Are You Getting Dental Implants?

In most cases, dental implants require three to six months of healing before a restoration can be attached. This gives the bone and soft tissues time to fuse to the implant posts.

Maintaining Your Results

Proper care is essential for maintaining the results of your smile makeover. Here are a few recommendations from our dentist and team in Fountain Valley:

Brush Daily

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.
