Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover is all about using cosmetic dentistry procedures to make positive changes to your teeth. It combines two or more of these procedures to upgrade your smile.

The effects of a smile makeover may be subtle, or they may be quite dramatic. With cosmetic dentistry we can make changes to the color of your teeth, close gaps, fix chips or cracks, or re-shape gum tissue. Since it addresses aspects you dislike, you can think of it as a customized smile.

The procedures include:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Bonding
  • Dental implants
  • Teeth whitening

Porcelain veneers are thin layers of medical-grade ceramic that are attached to the front of the teeth. Veneers can be used to cover gaps, chips, and stains.

Bonding involves using a composite resin to repair decay, chips, or fractures. It can also be used to make teeth seem longer. The color of the resin matches that of your teeth.

Dental implants have been hailed as one of the great advances in the history of dentistry. With a dental implant, a titanium post is inserted into the jaw, and in time fuses with the bone. An artificial tooth is fitted on top of that, and it looks and functions like a natural tooth. Implants can also anchor a set of dentures.

Teeth whitening takes your smile to the next level. Everyone wants whiter teeth, and whitening is one of the most in-demand cosmetic dentistry procedures there is. Professional whitening surpasses any over-the-counter product you can find.

At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, we work with you to customize a smile makeover treatment plan that will result in the smile you’ve always wanted. Services also include general dentistry. Call our office for an appointment today.

Not All Smile Makeovers Are Created Equal

This post from Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City is about smile makeovers. Some patients wonder if  the term is synonymous with cosmetic dentistry.

Are the placement of four veneers considered a smile makeover? Well, yes and no. If your smile is attractive and healthy except for some chips in your upper front teeth, veneer placement may remedy the few cosmetic problems and result in a sensational smile.

Generally, however, a complete smile makeover combines several carefully-chosen procedures performed at the same time for a complete smile renewal. In other words, the sum is greater than the parts.

For example, one treatment plan could include crown restorations, porcelain veneers for teeth that are misshapen but otherwise healthy, dental implants for a missing tooth, and teeth whitening for the crowning touch.
