Popular Smile Makeovers From a Cosmetic Dentist in Miami

A general dentist in Miami can transform the appearance of your smile with a smile makeover, a treatment typically performed by a cosmetic dentist. Almost everyone desires a perfect smile because a good smile can make a good first impression. With the procedures available, a general or cosmetic dentist can correct flaws like discoloration, tooth chip or breakage and even teeth misalignment.


Smile makeover options

Procedures included in a smile makeover include the following.

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are an excellent option for anyone who wants to get a bright, attractive smile. The thin porcelain shells can transform the teeth into all shades of perfection. The general or cosmetic dentist can customize the veneers to alter the color, size, shape and length of the teeth and complement the patient's appearance. By the end of the procedure, the teeth will look natural. Also, veneers are resistant to stains, so it is easy to maintain the result of the smile makeover treatment.

Teeth whitening

Professional teeth whitening is a popular smile makeover treatment for removing stains and discoloration on the teeth. In a dental appointment, the dentist can make the teeth several shades whiter. Teeth yellowing is associated with the natural aging process and from drinking teeth-staining foods over the years. The treatment is like turning back the hands of time to make your teeth white again.

Dental implants

Patients who are missing teeth after an extraction, trauma or gum disease need to have the teeth replaced to restore their smile's appearance. Dental implants function and look like natural teeth. The process entails inserting a titanium post into the jaw to support a dental restoration like a crown, bridge or denture. Restoring missing teeth with implants helps protect the jawbone and preserve the shape of the face.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are essentially "capping" for the teeth. Also considered a restorative procedure, porcelain dental crowns can be used to repair damaged teeth and mask imperfections on the teeth. They offer extra protection for a tooth that has undergone root canal treatment. The dental crown is customizable to match the color of existing teeth and is particularly an effective choice when a large portion of the tooth is damaged.

Tooth-colored fillings

If the tooth has cavities or minor decay, tooth-colored fillings will be part of the smile makeover procedure. The general or cosmetic dentist can fill the cavities and restore the tooth's appearance. If the decay is more significant, the dentist may opt for inlays or onlays instead.

Point to consider

The idea of a perfect smile is relative. While some patients will only need one or two procedures to achieve a better-looking smile, some may require multiple dental procedures. The general dentist will examine the condition of the patient's oral cavity and develop a treatment plan to help them get the perfect smile.

In conclusion

If you want an improved smile, you can contact the general dentist to schedule a consultation. The benefits of smile makeover treatment far transcend the aesthetic appeal, as it can also improve functionality.
