Whether your smile has changed over the years or you have always been less than pleased with it, a smile makeover can help. Smile makeovers are designed to address numerous cosmetic issues as they improve the function and aesthetics of your mouth. Our Northridge cosmetic dentist can provide you with the treatments you need to achieve the smile of your dreams.
Teeth whitening is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic dentistry. In-office whitening procedures take about an hour to perform and can lighten your teeth as much as eight shades. You may also be a candidate for a take-home whitening kit, which includes custom-fit mouth trays and whitening solutions that are stronger than those that are available over the counter. Whitening can remove years of stains from your teeth and leave your whole smile looking healthy and renewed. However, not everyone is a candidate for teeth whitening due to dental restorations or the type of staining. Dental veneers or Lumineers may be able to provide these patients with the results they desire. These thin porcelain shells fit over the tops of teeth to provide a more even, stain-free smile.
A smile makeover can also help correct any bite or alignment issues you have. Invisalign is a popular orthodontic choice for many adults today. It uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth without the pain or discomfort associated with traditional metal braces. Because Invisalign is removable, patients can continue to eat and clean their teeth just as they always have.
Missing teeth may also be corrected with a smile makeover. Our Northridge dental implants expert can help you determine the restoration options that would best meet your needs. Dental implants are titanium root replacements that osseointegrate, or fuse, with your jawbone so that your restoration looks, feels and functions just like your own natural tooth. A dental implant can be used with a crown to replace a single tooth, or several implants can be used to support a bridge or denture to replace several teeth or an entire arch of teeth.
