3 Steps to the Perfect Smile Makeover

Do you have missing teeth? Are your current teeth worn, chipped, or discolored? Full smile rehabilitation is more than just a smile makeover. It’s getting a healthy smile back – one that you can feel proud of, comfortable with, and gives you confidence.

3 things that your dentist will keep in mind during your full mouth reconstruction include:

The Best Tooth Replacement Option

Missing teeth can be replaced with dentures, partials, bridges, or dental implants. Implants are usually the preferred option, as they function as independent teeth. However, bridges may be more economical in some situations, and they are usually preferred over wearing removable prosthesis such as dentures and partials. Bridges can also be placed on top of dental implants.

Enhancing the Features of Your Current Smile

Whether your other teeth are damaged or just aesthetically unpleasing, a combination of both restorative and aesthetic procedures can easily correct those problems. For instance, cosmetic fillings treat cavities and also improve the tooth’s appearance. Porcelain crowns re-shape your teeth while also protecting them. Other options might include porcelain veneers, composite bonding, and teeth whitening.

Establishing a Healthy Bite Relationship

Beautiful teeth aren’t enough. Those teeth need to fit together properly, otherwise they will continue to wear out or even cause problems like TMJ disorder. Not to mention, misaligned teeth are also more prone to cavities and gum disease. A functional occlusion will accommodate the biting patterns of all of your teeth, as well as the new restorations.

Are you ready to get started on the path to a new smile? Call your dentist today to schedule a consultation and find out what treatment options you have to choose from.
