Smile makeovers use multiple treatments to make your smile more visually appealing. Some of the treatments can make your teeth more functional, but the primary reason for getting a smile makeover is cosmetic.
During your consultation and planning appointments at Smyl Manatee, Dr. Patel evaluates your smile, takes pictures, and uses technology like CT scans and smile simulators to visualize your results. He uses these techniques to plan the treatments you’ll need during your smile makeover and decides which order to perform them.
Smile makeovers include multiple treatments performed at the same time or close together. They can address many issues at once,, so you don’t have to target different issues with multiple treatments over several months or years.
Smyl Manatee offers the latest technologies and treatments for your personalized smile makeover. The treatments depend on your specific goals, and Dr. Patel makes recommendations after you discuss your concerns during a consultation.
Your smile makeover can include:
Dental crowns cover teeth that are imperfect in shape, weak, or damaged. They’re made to look just like natural teeth with tooth-colored translucent porcelain. Dr. Patel uses Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC) to make your new crowns or bridges in a day, making your smile makeover more efficient.
Bridges include one or two crowns that anchor one or more false teeth, called pontics. Like crowns, you can get your bridges in tooth-colored materials that look nearly identical to natural teeth.
Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment for crooked teeth. The clear aligners gradually push your teeth into a more appealing and functional alignment.
Veneers are similar to crowns but won’t strengthen your teeth or protect them. Instead, veneers are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to give them a straighter and whiter appearance.
Dental implants act as anchors for dental crowns or bridges. A titanium post in your jawbone holds the restoration in place permanently.
Other options include gum contouring, in-office teeth whitening, and custom take-home whitening trays.
A smile makeover can make drastic positive changes in how your smile looks. With the treatments included in your smile makeover, you can make changes that fix or cover:
Using the smile simulator beforehand, you’ll have an accurate idea of what your smile will look like when your smile makeover is complete. Using the same technology, you can fine-tune your results to fit your ideal idea of the perfect smile.
