The smile is our way of greeting the world and those we meet in it. When that smile doesn’t meet specific needs, it can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and that can heavily influence the way people interact with each other. A cosmetic dentist offers smile makeovers that improve aesthetic conditions of teeth through the use of innovative, technologically advanced approaches including treatments that provide lasting benefits.
For teeth with minor needs where cosmetic procedures can improve color and appearance, teeth whitening treatments can instantly enhance the appearance of a smile and that enhancement can last for years with proper oral hygiene and self-care. To adjust minor gaps, misalignments, broken teeth, and discolored, uneven, or otherwise less attractive teeth, porcelain veneers or Lumineers can transform teeth with minimal effort and a short treatment timeline. These veneer enhancements are custom-made to fit each individual tooth and a skilled cosmetic dentist carefully bonds them to the teeth.
Bite, alignment, and minor functional issues can be corrected without braces, in the traditional sense, with Invisalign. Invisalign is a process that uses custom-designed aligner trays to gradually and permanently straighten teeth, close gaps, and adjust bite for orthodontic results without the hardware. Many patients combine Invisalign with professional teeth whitening for a smile makeover. If the teeth whitening is insufficient, due to certain types of enamel stains or damage, Invisalign can be combined with veneers at the end of treatment for the improved bite and alignment with Hollywood-style smile results.
In cases that require more extensive repair, dental implants, CEREC crowns, and other services can be combined with cosmetic procedures for desirable results. Discussing complaints, problems, and goals of treatment with a qualified dentist can make a difference in the way treatment options are perceived. Some patients don’t realize the variety of affordable options that are available. For details, information, and to arrange an appointment, contact the office of Dr. Lori Logan today!
