A smile makeover uses one or several cosmetic dentistry techniques to improve the physical appearance of your teeth, gums, and mouth.
Before developing a custom treatment plan, Dr. Sierra considers several factors, including your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, and teeth. Afterward, he asks what you would like to change about your smile. Feel free to bring a list of questions to your initial consultation.
No two smile makeovers are exactly alike. Depending on your goals for treatment, Dr. Sierra might recommend one or several of the following:
Crowns and bridges are two of the most common oral prosthetics. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that restores a decaying, damaged, or severely discolored tooth. A bridge is a fixed appliance that fills a gap in your smile.
If you’re missing one or several permanent teeth, and you don’t want to wear dentures, Dr. Sierra might recommend dental implants. Dental implants are small metal posts that support crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures. Implants fuse to your jawbone and serve as replacement tooth roots. They’re sturdy, durable, and long-lasting.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear, plastic trays to gradually straighten and align your teeth. They’re much more discreet than traditional orthodontics and they’re removable. This means you can eat your favorite foods, including popcorn or candy, which are no-nos if you wear metal braces.
Teeth whitening is a safe, effective treatment used to eradicate stains and discoloration from the surface of your teeth. At Boca Mission Bay Dentistry, Dr. Sierra offers Philips Zoom!® chairside teeth whitening, as well as Day White® take-home whitening trays.
Veneers are custom-manufactured shells of porcelain or composite resin that Dr. Sierra bonds to the front of your natural, permanent teeth. This process restores balance and symmetry to your smile. Veneers are also worth considering if your teeth don’t respond to traditional whitening treatments.
Only a qualified dentist like Dr. Sierra can determine if a smile makeover is right for you. Following an oral exam, a discussion of your goals for treatment, and a review of your oral health history, he can make recommendations that align with your individual needs. You might benefit from one specific treatment or a combination of several techniques.
