What procedures are used in a typical smile makeover?

Some of the most common procedures we use to make over a smile include teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental crowns, and dental implants. Here’s what each treatment can accomplish.

Teeth Whitening

Since teeth are whiter the younger you are, yellow and stained teeth are often seen as a sign of age. Discoloration can happen by eating artificially colored foods, drinking coffee, tea or wine, or smoking, and can negatively impact your appearance and even make you look unhealthy. As a result, many patients choose to have their teeth whitened to remove the stains.

An in-office whitening procedure can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single office visit without discomfort. For those who would prefer to whiten their teeth on their own schedule, an at-home treatment is possible by taking an impression of your teeth and creating a custom tray. Unlike store-bought trays that are one-size-fits-all, a perfect fit ensures that the whitening solution stays in place and that your teeth feel comfortable. It also includes a professional-strength whitening solution that can be used at home so that you can improve the appearance of your teeth, regardless of where you are or how busy your schedule is. To learn more, call (202) 793-7857 and schedule a consultation.

Dental Veneers

For patients whose teeth are severely stained or damaged, dental veneers can help improve their smile, and they can trust Dr. Hines to create natural looking veneers that can transform ordinary smiles into something truly stunning. Veneers can be used to close gaps between teeth, make teeth even in length, cover dark stains, and restore teeth that have been cracked or chipped. Some crooked teeth can even appear straighter using veneers. In fact, many Hollywood stars have used veneers to improve their smiles. When you schedule an appointment with our Washington dentist office, we will examine your teeth to determine if veneers are the best option for achieving your smile goals.
When completing a smile makeover, dental veneers can also be used to make teeth appear larger for adults whose teeth appear too small for their smile and their frame. When this is the case, veneers can be used to elongate the teeth and make them appear more natural.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can accomplish similar goals to veneers. They can make teeth even, close gaps, cover stains, and restore cracked or chipped teeth. The major difference is that the crown surrounds the entire tooth, so there is additional stability that comes with this procedure.

That’s why, for teeth that are more severely damaged or broken, they may be a better solution for transforming their appearance and functionality. A crown can be made in an all-ceramic or all-porcelain material that surrounds the tooth entirely to both improve the appearance of the tooth and strengthen it.

Some of our patients have previous dental crowns placed that are made out of metal. While these are functional, they are obvious, unattractive, and make it difficult — if not impossible — for a smile to look natural and healthy. Replacing metal crowns with ceramic ones makes it possible to have the restoration that you need without anyone knowing your tooth had ever been damaged. Dr. Hines treats patients throughout Washington DC who want their smile makeover to include getting rid of outdated metal crowns.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent way to restore missing teeth because once the procedure is completed, you can enjoy all of your favorite activities and foods without worrying about the tooth falling out or becoming loose. This is an advantage over other solutions, like dentures, in which teeth can get loose while running around or eating lunch with friends. Dental implants are so durable that you won’t be able to tell the difference between the implant and natural teeth.

For this procedure, a metal post is implanted under the gums and secured to the jawbone. Over several months, the bone and metal will fuse together in order to create a synthetic root system that is just as strong as a natural root system. Once healed, a new tooth is secured to the metal post for a natural and beautiful looking smile. This procedure is commonly used in smile makeovers because it allows Dr. Hines to replace any teeth that are missing.

Dental implants can also be used to straighten teeth that are crooked or not responding to orthodontics. It’s an important part of a smile makeover because if all of your teeth are white and beautiful, but one is severely crooked, your new smile will feel incomplete. Our patients trust Dr. Hines and the staff at Premier Dental Care to replace their missing teeth in a way that looks completely natural.
