A smile is one of the simplest gestures we can make, yet it is also one of the most powerful. Not only does having a great smile give you confidence and improved self-esteem, but it also has the ability to have a profound effect on others around you. A fantastic smile can make you appear friendly, honest, confident and capable. It can make you more attractive to those around you and help to make other people happy.
Fortunately, if you aren’t happy with the way that your smile looks, there are cosmetic dentistry procedures in Jupiter, FL that can improve it. Every patient is unique and has their very own smile goals, and very often these require more than just one cosmetic procedure to achieve them. These can be combined into your very own individualized cosmetic dentistry package in a service that is known as Smile Design.
What is involved in Smile Design?
Exactly what will be involved in your Smile Design treatment will depend on the cosmetic changes that you wish to make to your smile. Your Smile Design specialist will discuss which aspects of your teeth and smile you would most like to improve upon and make recommendations as to the best procedures to achieve your goal.
Some of the most common procedures included in Smile Design treatment plans include:
By far the most popular elective dental treatment in the world, teeth whitening can transform the color of your smile, making it brighter, whiter and more attractive. In-office whitening performed by a cosmetic dentistry professional has been proven to deliver the most effective, consistent and long-lasting results and in a few short sessions, you can see the appearance of your teeth transformed.
Porcelain veneers are both a good alternative to teeth whitening for those patients who may be sensitive to whitening ingredients and can also be used to cover other cosmetic smile imperfections. These thin, shell-like covers sit over the top of the enamel to hide cracks, chips, and discoloration. They can also be used to add thickness or height to teeth or hide small gaps between them. Their porcelain material means that they can be glazed in a shade to match existing teeth, and whether you opt for a single veneer or an entire set, veneers are always custom created for each patient so that they fit perfectly and look natural.
Dental bonding is another popular way of improving minor cosmetic defects on the teeth. Resin is pasted onto the teeth and molded to cover cracks, chips, and stains. It is then cured using a special light, which hardens it. Your teeth are then polished to a high shine so that they look fantastic. Bonding is completely non-invasive and can add strength to the teeth that have the resin applied.
If you have problems with the position of your bite (the way that your teeth come together when you close your mouth) or the alignment of your teeth, you may be recommended for orthodontic treatment. This could involve conventional braces or a clear aligner-based solution such as Invisalign. These treatments are designed to bring the teeth and jaw into better alignment, improving the overall appearance of your smile.
If you have one or more teeth that are missing, you will undoubtedly feel self-conscious about the gaps in your smile. Fortunately, it is possible to replace missing teeth using dental implants. This revolutionary solution uses a titanium post in place of a real tooth root, giving the porcelain crown that makes the visible part of the implant a permanent and stable foundation. Implants can be used to support individual artificial teeth, bridges and partial or full dentures. They are widely considered to be the most superior tooth replacement solution available.
