Restore Your Smile and Renew Your Confidence With a Smile Makeover

Smile makeover

Having a bright and healthy smile can do wonders for your self-esteem and social interactions. A smile makeover is a process of making enhancements to your smile to improve your appearance and self-confidence.

But smile makeover treatments aren’t only cosmetic; they can include orthodontic treatment and tooth replacement solutions to restore the function of your smile and improve your oral health and quality of life.

A smile makeover typically includes at least two restorative or cosmetic dental treatments. It can also include Botox and Juvederm treatments to diminish fine wrinkles around your mouth, nose, eyes, and along your forehead for a youthful appearance. Here are four of the most popular smile makeover treatments.

1. Professional Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening can dramatically and instantly improve your smile by several shades in a single visit.

At Valley Dental Care, we offer in-office and at-home professional teeth whitening treatments. If you choose an in-office treatment, we ensure the safety of your gums and soft tissues before painting the whitening agent onto your teeth. We may then apply a light or laser to accelerate the process.

If you’re more comfortable brightening your teeth at home, we offer customized mouth trays that you fill with the whitening gel before wearing for a set period. The duration depends on the strength of the gel and whether you wear them during the day or while you sleep.

Our at-home teeth whitening treatment takes about two weeks to show noticeable results. You can also use our at-home kits to touch up your in-office treatment.

2. Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers can also dramatically and safely brighten your smile. This procedure uses thin porcelain shells that are cemented to the front surface of your teeth, masking stains, gaps, chips, and even short teeth for a bright, even smile.

While this procedure is popular, especially for the front six social teeth, it is irreversible. This is because your dentist has to remove a small amount of your tooth enamel to accommodate the veneer.

3. Clear Aligners

Braces aren’t just for teens anymore. Discreet and removable Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, or ClearCorrect aligners are the perfect solution for straightening mild to moderate malocclusions.

The orthodontic system you choose depends on the complexity of your diagnosis and your desired outcome. Our dental team can help you determine the best teeth straightening solution for your smile at your orthodontic consultation.

4. Dental Implants

Dental implants are a permanent solution for restoring a smile when you have missing or severely damaged teeth. The dental implant process is long, taking several months to complete, but you’re left with a prosthetic tooth that looks and functions like your natural teeth.

The implant consists of three parts: the implant rod, the abutment, and the dental crown. During dental implant surgery, your dentist opens the gum and inserts a titanium rod into the jaw. The surgical site is closed, and healing can take up to six months.

Once the implant rod fuses to your jawbone in a process called osseointegration, your dentist places the abutment (a connector) and attaches your dental crown.
