Smile Makeover Procedures
As mentioned earlier, your complete dental makeover may involve both cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry. If you’re wondering what, exactly, is the difference between the two, think of it like this: Restorative dentistry focuses on the function of your mouth, teeth, and gums while cosmetic dentistry focuses on the beauty of your mouth, teeth, and gums.
What makes a smile makeover so wonderful is that when a skillful NYC dentist combines cosmetic dentistry with restorative dentistry, the result is always the same: A fully functioning mouth with attractive teeth and gums that are strong, healthy, and beautiful.
Your complete dental makeover may include any combination of the following procedures:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental bonding
- Tooth whitening
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Dental crowns
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
As you look at that list, you may think, “Wow, will I need all that work??” The answer is, “No!” Every smile makeover is different and doesn’t require all of those procedures. Some hugely successful smile makeovers only require two or three procedures. Others may take longer due to larger problems like several missing teeth or gum disease that must be treated prior to performing any aesthetic work.
