If you have a number of problems with your teeth and you are unhappy with your smile, you may have thought that the work you needed went beyond just cosmetic dentistry. Perhaps you not only have a smile that embarrasses you, but you might be feeling discomfort or dealing with missing teeth and other issues. This is where a smile makeover comes into the picture.
If you have a number of problems with your mouth and smile, talk to Dr. Kenneth Cho, your cosmetic dentist in La Habra, CA, about how a smile makeover might be just what you need to have a smile that looks good—and works well.
What Might Be Included in a Smile Makeover
Dr, Cho might recommend a combination of treatments for your smile makeover. Smile makeovers might include any combination of the following:
- Dental veneers. Celebrities use dental veneers to camouflage many cosmetic dental issues, and these thin porcelain shells that fit over the front of your teeth can give you a Hollywood-worthy smile.
- Dental onlays. If you don’t need a full crown, an onlay will fit over the top of your tooth so the damage is fixed and the original tooth structure is kept intact.
- Dental implants. Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. They look a lot like your natural teeth, and because the implant embeds with the jawbone, they are completely stable.
- Tooth-colored fillings. Unlike the old metal amalgam fillings that used to be common, today’s tooth-colored fillings are a cosmetically pleasing way to repair teeth—even in the front of the mouth.
- Partial or complete dentures. Unlike the fake-looking dentures of yesterday, today’s modern dentures look more natural and are more reliable than ever before.
- Ceramic crowns. When teeth are weakened or damaged, or oddly shaped or discolored, a ceramic crown will fit right over the tooth. Crowns look and function just like your natural tooth.
