Everyone wants a beautiful smile complete with perfectly shaped, even white teeth. Unfortunately, many people do not have this picture perfect smile due to the mouth and teeth they were born with or chips, cracks, uneven teeth, discoloration or stains that have happened over time. Fortunately, cosmetic smile makeovers from our Easton Dental practice can turn those disappointing smiles into the smiles our patients have always wanted.
There are many techniques that our doctors can use during cosmetic smile makeovers to improve the look of your smile while enhancing the functional ability of your teeth. One such cosmetic yet functional technique is the use of porcelain veneers to cover small imperfections such as cracks, chips, uneven teeth and discolored or stained teeth. Veneers are thin sheets of a porcelain material that our doctor shapes and bonds to the front of the tooth covering the imperfection with a perfect looking front. Not only do these veneers improve the appearance and color of the tooth but they also protect it from bacteria getting into a chip or crack and prevent the chip from widening. The veneer can be made to match the color of the surrounding teeth or a whole mouthful of veneers can turn the patient’s smile white again. For larger imperfections such as wide crack or chips that run throughout a tooth our doctor will use crowns instead of veneers because they cover and seal the whole tooth and not just the front.
Another of our practice’s cosmetic smile makeovers is called the Six Month Smile, which is impressive new orthodontic procedure that straightens teeth and creates the perfect smile with an average treatment period of six months instead of the 2 – 3 years of traditional braces. Six Month Smile uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to slowly move the teeth comfortably into position. This procedure is quicker, more comfortable and more affordable than other orthopedic procedures. Our doctors can also whiten your teeth using either in-office or at-home bleaching systems.
