What procedures are used in a Sacramento area smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a wonderful way for Sacramento area patients to rejuvenate their appearance and feel confident when they smile and socialize with others. Drs. Kosta J. Adams and Kristen J. Adams believe in providing new and existing patients with a large selection of services, which are available to combine and create a beautiful, radiant smile for life. Some of the common procedures used when developing a plan for a complete smile makeover:
First, patients may benefit from the realignment of their natural teeth. This can be done easily and discreetly with the use of Invisalign aligner trays. This method of orthodontics is often preferred as it is less noticeable and more comfortable than conventional orthodontia.
Imperfections on the natural teeth may be covered with porcelain veneers, which look like natural teeth and disguise problem areas. They can be used over teeth that are permanently stained, broken, or crooked.
Composite resin bonding can be used as a more economical alternative to porcelain veneers. This material does not last as long but it can be used in many situations such as coverage of natural teeth, disguising breakage, and even hiding spaces between teeth.
Professional grade whitening products are much more effective at improving the brightness of the smile than those available to patients over the counter.
These restorations are the ideal solution to missing natural teeth. Dental implants are titanium posts, which are placed during oral surgery and restored over the top with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Bridges are used to replace missing teeth and are a more economical solution than dental implants and more permanent than dentures. They are often considered a “middle of the road” solution to adult tooth loss.
Full and partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures are ideal for patients who are missing one or more teeth within a dental arch, while full dentures are used to replace the entire arch.
