A beautiful smile can be one of your greatest assets, boosting your self-confidence, and helping you look young and healthy. A smile makeover addresses every aspect of your smile, restoring your dental health and the beauty of your teeth and gums with a comprehensive approach in which all the procedures work together and complement each other.
Cosmetic dentist Dr. Quigless will start out by checking for decay, as it is always best to catch it early. From there we address:
- Chips, cracks, and broken teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Discoloration that won’t respond to tooth whitening
- Gum problems
Both function and beauty
In performing the procedures of your smile makeover, Dr. Quigless will correct underlying dental problems, and will do it with your smile’s beauty in mind. A smile makeover is far more than cosmetics. It means total dental health, and in fact, dental beauty begins with dental health.
Each smile makeover is unique and designed to address your dental needs beautifully and efficiently. You might have porcelain veneers as a quick way to deal with several minor defects like small chips or gaps. If you have old metal fillings, Dr. Quigless can replace them with white fillings, which will blend in smoothly with your natural teeth.
Sometimes dental bonding is the best and easiest way to fill a small gap or mend a little chip. If you have any missing teeth, we can address that too, with a dental implant. That is like positioning an artificial tooth root, which then holds a new shiny porcelain tooth to fill the gap.
Considering your bite
As a neuromuscular dentist, Dr. Quigless provides restorations which will not impair your bite, and are comfortable and long-lasting.
When your bite is properly aligned, your teeth work together as they should, relieving pain and tension in your face, neck and shoulders. This aspect of your smile makeover can take years off of your appearance by:
- Balancing your profile
- Reducing lines in the face
- Strengthening the jawline
- Improving posture
Straight, white teeth convey the impression of youth and good health, and can improve your social life and job prospects.
Perhaps the most dramatic difference you will notice after a smile makeover is how you feel about yourself. If you currently have tooth and gum problems, you may be hiding your teeth. But when you know that you have a beautiful smile, you will find yourself smiling more readily, and approaching people with more confidence.
