A Smile Makeover Can Fix Your Smile After an Accident
If you have been in an accident that has damaged your teeth, a smile makeover can restore your smile. Whether you have cracked your tooth or lost your tooth, a smile makeover could be just what you need to correct the damage. We offer many techniques that will greatly improve your smile including, but not limited to, bonding, crowns, veneers, bridges, and even implants.
Smile Makeover Treatments
Bonding involves the use of a tooth-colored composite resin that is applied to the chipped, cracked or discolored area of your tooth and then hardened to a smooth, natural looking surface. This process will repair minor damages and give your teeth a perfect finish that makes any imperfection unnoticeable to the naked eye.
Our attractive, durable crowns can improve the look of a tooth that sustains too much damage for bonding to cover the imperfections. Crowns are a permanent, protective solution to harmful damages that could encourage decay if left untreated. Our crowns will completely encapsulate your tooth so no damage will be visible and your tooth will have the ultimate defense against further harm.
They come in silver amalgam or tooth-colored porcelain or ceramic material. For a smile makeover, our patients tend to prefer natural looking crowns since they can correct both physical damage and any aesthetic imperfections.
For a large scale smile makeover, veneers are a good solution since they can close gaps, cover stains, and change the overall appearance of your teeth. Veneers are a porcelain type shell that covers the front of your teeth, shielding any chips, discoloration, or other noticeable damage. They can also improve shaping if your teeth have been misshapen from an accident. Veneers are tooth-colored and will be bonded to your teeth to create a lasting repair.
If you have lost your teeth in an accident or you have suffered from irreparable damage, a dental bridge may be the best option for your smile. A dental bridge is created by placing crowns on existing teeth, anchoring the bridge to them, and securing a permanent tooth to that bridge. Dental bridges are natural-looking and feel secure in your mouth. Most people will not even notice you have a bridge, and you will be able to eat the food you like. This is an attractive solution for your smile.
For the most permanent solution, a dental implant is the best choice. During the procedure, we will insert a dental implant into your dental cavity on your jawbone where the root of your former tooth was. The secure, titanium metal post is a permanent replacement to your original tooth root. A manufactured tooth that looks similar to your other teeth will be created and attached to the titanium rod. A dental implant will be one of your most attractive routes to a great smile after an accident. It will look very natural and blend in with your other teeth.
No matter which of the smile makeover procedures you may need, our services will help you attain a smile like you originally had or better. You will be pleased with our natural looking, durable solutions and the attractive smile they produce.
