A smile makeover takes restoration dentistry one-step further using cosmetic dentistry procedures that enhance your smile.
What is a Smile Makeover?
Restoration dentistry means repairing teeth so that they are healthy and functional. Cosmetic dentistry means cosmetic dental crowns, dental implants, cosmetic dental bonding, porcelain veneers, professional tooth whitening, inlays, onlays, and clear braces. In other words, a general dentist will restore your smile while a cosmetic dentist will enhance it with advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures.
A Smile Makeover and Cosmetic Dentistry
In most cases, your smile makeover will be both restorative and cosmetic because some procedures cross over. For example, dental implants are both restorative, as they help rebuild bone, and cosmetic as they provide you with a natural looking artificial tooth.
Dr. George Sanchez practices mercury free dentistry providing you with tooth colored fillings and crowns. Because of his tooth colored solutions, his restorations are also cosmetic.
Types of Cosmetic Dentistry in Delray Beach
Your Delray Beach cosmetic dentist provides cosmetic dental services that include:
Professional Tooth Whitening for a Smile Makeover
Done in office or with custom made whitening trays, professional tooth whitening is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world and is usually performed before other procedures for an accurate color match.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Cosmetic dental crowns cover the whole tooth like a cap. Fitting over the whole tooth, cosmetic crowns match the rest of your smile and can be completed in a single dental visit. Cosmetic crowns go hand in hand with a smile makeover.
A Smile Makeover and Inlays/Onlays
These are custom-made tooth colored restorations that are laid in or on the tooth depending on the damage. The inlays and onlays are made to match the damaged tooth perfectly.
Your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach uses the clear plastic aligner system for a smile makeover to gradually move teeth into place. Unlike conventional braces, Invisalign® works in 12 to 18 months. Conventional wires and brackets can take up to 2 years.
The strongest replacement for missing teeth, dental implants can last the rest of your life as long as you practice good oral hygiene. Dental implants are as strong, if not stronger than your own teeth.
Porcelain veneers repair cracked, chipped, and stained teeth. However, veneers fit over the tops of the teeth where the crowns fit over the entire tooth.
