Smile makeovers are a group of treatments customised to suit your needs
When you are unhappy with the look of your smile it can severely impact your self-esteem and confidence. The smile makeover process can give you the ability to change the way you look and feel about yourself.
Our smile makeover process can restore your teeth to allow for a beautiful, natural, and a more youthful looking smile. Transforming your smile might be as simple as a tooth whitening treatment or having a few porcelain veneers bonded to your front teeth.
A smile makeover can combine a range of cosmetic dental treatments that will restore your smile to a satisfactory level. Our range of cosmetic dental treatments includes:
- Tooth whitening
- Dental implants
- Porcelain crowns
- Porcelain veneers
Some factors which may influence the success and selection of your smile makeover include:
Tooth color depends on both the age of the patient and their skin tone. Shades that are too light in some cases do not look natural, and in other cases, greatly enhance the patient’s smile.
The shape of tooth selection is dependent upon the shape of the patient’s face. For example, longer teeth often have a narrowing effect on patients who have rounder faces.
More youthful smiles often have longer teeth. Even if teeth have been worn over years, a more youthful smile can often be created by lengthening the front teeth. Porcelain veneers and in some cases, re-contouring gum tissue can create this youthful effect. The porcelain veneers used are as thin as fingernails, yet when bonded to teeth create strength and beauty that is unparalleled.
In many cases, using porcelain veneers we can create a perfect arch and smile without orthodontic treatment. This can be done in as little as one visit with CEREC. Discolored teeth, worn teeth and chipped teeth can be treated using the same porcelain technology.
Customizing your smile
At Elite Dental of Staten Island we recognize that every patient is unique and therefore so is every mouth. With this in mind, we create personalized dental care for every patient. We will create an individual treatment plan for you, specifically formulated to achieve the results you desire.
Depending on your individual circumstances we can combine these treatments to give you a unique treatment plan that best suits your needs. A variety of treatment options in a complete smile makeover include:
Tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments to achieving a healthy beautiful white smile.
Porcelain veneers are a great way to conceal chipped, cracked yellow or gappy teeth to enhance the esthetics of your smile. They are made of an ultra-thin shell of porcelain which covers the front surface of your teeth and is to fit your individual tooth shape and size.
Dental implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth. Dental implants help in retaining the strength of the jaw, gums and bite alignment.
Crown can protect a weak tooth from cracking, and can help maintain a healthy bite. The esthetic benefit of a crown is that it is designed to match the tone, colour and shape of your natural tooth.
A smile makeover is a group of treatments that can be customised to suit your particular needs and desired results. A smile makeover might involve just one or two cosmetic treatments, such as a teeth whitening treatment, or the placement of some porcelain veneers to conceal an imperfection, or it may include a wide range of procedures designed to restore the appearance of your teeth. Treatments may include tooth whitening, dental implants, porcelain crowns, and veneers. In each case, a personalized treatment plan is formulated based on each patient’s expectations.
Crowns are often used to protect a weak tooth from cracking, and can be very helpful in maintaining a healthy bite. There are also huge esthetic benefits to opting for crowns, as they are designed to perfectly match the tone, color, and shape of your natural teeth.
In some cases, it is possible to create a perfect arch without orthodontic treatment by using porcelain veneers. We use porcelain veneers, which are made from an ultra-thin shell of porcelain, and are highly effective in enhancing the appearance of a smile and concealing imperfections.
