QUESTION: Are You Ready for a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is exciting. It can completely change the look of your smile and give you a huge boost in confidence. Essentially, a smile makeover is using one or more procedures to enhance the look of your smile. These procedures may include a few different enhancement and restorative services provided by Thomas L. Anderson and Associates, such as:

  • Porcelain veneers: thin, wafer-like shells that are bonded to the top of your teeth and improve the appearance of your teeth.  Learn more HERE.
  • Invisalign invisible braces: clear aligners that straighten your teeth. What’s the difference between Braces and Invisalign? Learn more HERE.
  • Professional teeth whitening: removing stains on your teeth.
  • Dentures: removable appliances that replace teeth.
  • Dental implants: artificial tooth roots and crowns.
  • Crowns and bridges: A dental crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.

What Does a Smile Makeover Help With?

Many enhancement services, such as veneers, invisible braces, and implants can help with functionality, as well as a beautiful appearance. A complete smile makeover can target:

  • Misalignment: Both porcelain veneers and Invisalign aligners target misaligned or crooked teeth. Invisalign aligners will move the teeth you have and put them into proper alignment over the span of a few weeks or months. Porcelain veneers can fix crooked teeth by putting the new shell on top of the crooked tooth. Veneers can be put on a single tooth, or multiple teeth.
  • Missing teeth: Missing teeth can take away from your youthful appearance and make you look older than you are; thy can also increase the risk of decay. Dental implants, bridges, and dentures are wonderful ways to restore your full smile.
  • Discolored teeth: Years of stains can take a toll on the whiteness of your teeth. Professional whitening services go above and beyond over-the-counter remedies and remove stains from within the tooth. Porcelain veneers can also be used to improve dull, discolored teeth, all while looking natural and bright.
