Charleston dentist’s approach to consultations for smile makeovers results in dramatic yet natural transformation
Your smile makeover is unique. Since needs vary from patient to patient, the procedures that contribute to a comprehensive makeover vary dramatically. The consultation is the foundation for makeovers that make patients smile.
Dr. Greenberg encourages you to bring your well-defined goals to the consultation. A beautiful feature to one person may not be attractive to another patient. Some patients want a smile that is whiter and brighter than their natural teeth. Other patients may want to restore teeth to their original color. These and other considerations are matters of personal preference.
While you may crave an improved appearance, the doctor can’t move forward with any makeover procedures until he ensures your mouth is healthy. Procedures on unhealthy teeth can make underlying conditions worse. These conditions can present as everything from unsightly chips to distracting gaps or crowding. With your health confirmed or restored, Dr. Greenberg uses his artistic talent and training to assess other characteristics and determine suitable treatments to correct cosmetic concerns.
Generally, makeover-related procedures improve the following features that contribute to the overall look of your smile:
- Color or shade
- Alignment or spacing
You may benefit from customized whitening trays, which may be applied and worn in the comfort of your home to treat stains. Porcelain veneers or bonding may be an alternative to bleaching, as these methods cover up stubborn discoloration caused by conditions such as excess fluoride use in childhood.
The thin layers of porcelain and tooth-colored composite materials bonded to the teeth may cover slight spacing issues, such as gaps. These procedures address chips and reshape teeth to produce a more uniform appearance.
Beauty can be achieved with tooth replacement options such as dental bridges and implant-supported restorations. Replacing missing teeth helps you avoid progressive bone loss, which prematurely ages you. Without underlying support, the tissues on your face sink. Youthful contours and volume are lost.
These and other procedures may be combined to dramatically improve your appearance and the quality of your life.
