When it comes to caring for the teeth, it is always a top priority to ensure that they are healthy and strong. However, teeth that are healthy may not necessarily be aesthetically pleasing. There are a number of cosmetic blemishes that can detract from the aesthetics of the smile without negatively affecting oral health. Toledo Cosmetic dentist George Namay understands his patients’ desire for teeth that are both healthy and attractive. That is why he offers a wide range of cosmetic treatments geared toward helping patients achieve their ideal smile, one that shows teeth that are white, straight, and free of cosmetic flaws. Patients who have a number of aesthetic flaws to be addressed are likely candidates for smile makeover treatment, a customized series of procedures that greatly improve the appearance of the smile.
Am I a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?
If you are displeased with the appearance of your smile due to the presence of cosmetic imperfections, you are likely and an excellent candidate for a smile makeover. Because each smile makeover treatment is customized to meet the unique needs of each of our patients, a smile makeover can benefit patients with any of the following cosmetic flaws:
- Discoloration or stains: The color of the teeth may not affect the health or the strength of the teeth but it does have a significant impact on the appearance of the smile. A smile makeover can include teeth whitening, dental bonding, or porcelain veneers to brighten and whiten the teeth.
- Chips or cracks: Chips and cracks are cosmetic blemishes that can detract from the aesthetics of the smile. Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are two cosmetic treatments that can conceal chips or cracks in order to enhance the appearance of the tooth.
- Crooked teeth: Crooked teeth, teeth that are overcrowded, or those with large gaps can all negatively affect the appearance of the smile and may even compromise the structure of the jaw bone. We offer adult orthodontic treatment to give patients straight and even teeth. With Invisalign® invisible braces, patients can straighten the teeth without compromising the appearance of the smile. The clear aligner trays used throughout treatment are virtually undetectable.
- Missing teeth: Missing teeth are an obvious cosmetic imperfection and a threat to oral health. Replacing missing teeth will maintain the structure of the mouth and improve the appearance of the smile. Dental restorations to replace missing teeth include dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants.
Any combination of the above imperfections can be corrected through a smile makeover treatment. The only requirement for smile makeover candidates is that the teeth and gums are healthy enough to support any cosmetic treatment that is applied. If the teeth or gums are weakened by any deterioration or decay, the appropriate restorative treatment will need to be administered before smile makeover treatment can begin.
