4 Ways to Change Your Smile with a Smile Makeover from Midtown Dental - The Gallery of Smiles in Houston, TXMany individuals of all ages find themselves in need of a smile makeover. This may be due to a number of reasons such as discolored, misaligned, misshapen or broken teeth. There are numerous treatment options today for dental patients to correct their smiles and feel happier and more confident.

Ways to improve a smile with a smile makeover

Dentists assess each patient's oral health and dental issues to devise a unique treatment plan. These are four ways a smile makeover can enhance the appearance of a person's smile.

1. Braces

Braces are a dental appliance used to straighten teeth and correct issues such as an under or overbite. In addition to traditional braces comprised of stainless steel and metal, patients can choose from many other types. Newer options that may be considered include Ceramic and Damon™ braces, which are similar to the traditional style.

Clear aligners are a popular choice for those with milder cases of teeth misalignment. Aligners are made of plastic and customized to fit a patient’s mouth. They are removable so wearers can take them out during eating and cleaning. New aligner trays are typically introduced every two weeks to slowly adjust the positioning of the teeth.

2. Dental implants

Dental implants are a smile makeover option used to replace missing teeth. This treatment involves the placement of an artificial tooth root into the jaw to help stabilize the bone. The root then becomes a base for an artificial tooth. Implants prevent serious problems that can occur from missing teeth, such as teeth shifting and bone loss, which often affect the face’s appearance. Dental implants are sturdy and result in a natural smile that can last for years.

3. Veneers

Veneers are thin shells created from resin or porcelain that are customized to fit directly over a tooth. With this option, a dentist takes an impression of the teeth and sends it to a lab for the fabrication of the veneers. They are usually ready to be placed within a week. These covers are colored and shaped to match the rest of the teeth and provide a natural look. Veneers are normally used to correct dental issues such as discolored, chipped or misshapen teeth, as well as worn enamel. The results are durable and lasting.

4. Crowns

Crowns are a type of restoration that involves placing a tooth-shaped cap over a tooth or multiple teeth. This treatment is most often done to repair teeth that are weak, broken or misshaped. It may also be needed for larger cavities that a filling cannot fix. Crowns are usually made from ceramic, porcelain, metal or stainless steel and are long-lasting. Dental crowns can improve the appearance and strength of teeth.
