Lately I have noticed that more and more people are recognizing the transformative effects of a beautiful smile. Smile makeovers are now one of the more popular cosmetic enhancement trends and for good reason – an attractive smile can take years off your age almost instantly, making you look healthy and vibrant. Usually, a combination of procedures is needed to see the full results. Here are a few of the most common treatments I use in my practice during a smile makeover:
- Gum Bleaching: A gum bleaching procedure is often used to correct the look of dark or discolored gums. My treatments take less than an hour and can be accomplished in a single visit.
- Gummy Smile Correction: Excessive gum tissue that is displayed when smiling is often referred to as a “gummy smile.” I have performed hundreds of gummy smile corrections with a simple lip-lowering procedure that helps to create a more natural gum-to-tooth ratio.
- Laser Tooth Whitening/ Tooth Reshaping: Whiter teeth can make your smile look brighter and healthier. Laser whitening offers longer-lasting results than chemical agents and produces better results. After one session, your teeth may brighten by as many as 10 shades. Sometimes the cutting edge of upper and lower front teeth are uneven due to excessive wear, grinding, habit, chips and indentations or the length of teeth may vary. Minor reshaping of teeth will create more harmony and make the smile more attractive. Some cases may need porcelain veneers to create optimum result.
