Top 5 Cosmetic Treatments for a Smile Makeover

Cosmetic dental treatments for a new smileAre you looking to change your smile? It’s your defining feature, and the first thing people notice about you. You should never be afraid to show off your pearly whites. From small but impactful changes to a complete smile makeover, we can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of at Shoreline Dental Studio. There are many options when determining how to improve your smile, and each smile makeover can be tailored to fit your goals. Here are just a few procedures that can transform your smile.

1. Teeth Whitening

Yellow teeth are the most common complaint from our patients. Common foods and drinks like coffee, tea, and berries can stain your teeth. Luckily, there are many effective teeth whitening options for you to choose from. We can supply at-home whitening kits that are custom fitted to your teeth. These are stronger than store-bought whitening kits, and cause less gum irritation.

We also preform in-office whitening treatments, like Zoom! Advanced Whitening. In-office treatments are perfect for instant results, and can whiten your enamel by 8 shades on average.

2. Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign clear aligners are the perfect option for perfect teeth. Who wants to be a brace-face past the age of 12? Invisalign aligners offer a discrete option for straightening your teeth. They are also a great option for making small changes to your teeth that traditional braces often can’t. If you’re plagued by misaligned teeth come in for a consultation.

3. Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be used to cover damaged or discolored teeth. They are ideal for replacing a large filling, restoring a cracked tooth, or cover a discolored or oddly shaped tooth. Crowns take two appointments: the first to remove the compromised structure and take an impression, and the second is to adhere the crown.

4. Enamel Shaping

If you’re worried about a rough-edged tooth or slight overlap, enamel shaping (or re-contouring) can help. It can smooth rough edges and create a more uniform look. We do this by removing a very small amount of the surface of the enamel for a smoother look.

5. Porcelain Veneers

Sometimes a whitening treatment just won’t do. If you’re looking to completely overhaul the look of your smile, porcelain veneers are the best way to accomplish it. Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that are custom made to lay on top of your existing tooth to transform the shape and color. Veneers are the perfect cosmetic option for fixing small gaps, and discolored or oddly shaped teeth.
