Who is a candidate for a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is a beautiful solution for all patients who are ready to transform their look and achieve a smile they are excited to share with others! An initial consultation appointment is a great place to start.

What procedures are involved in a smile makeover?

Dr. Anakarina DeAngelis may utilize a variety of treatments to help patients achieve their full smile makeover. The transformation may include a combination of any of the below procedures:

•             ClearCorrect orthodontics – smile realignment is a common request by our patients, but many do not like the idea of using traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces to achieve the results. Instead, our team is pleased to offer ClearCorrect, which uses clear plastic aligner trays to reposition the teeth.

•             Dental veneers – dental veneers are thin facings custom-made from porcelain to bond over the front of a tooth to change its appearance. It disguises imperfections such as permanent staining, chips, cracks, or unusually shaped teeth.

•             Dental crowns – also known as a dental restoration, dental crowns can cover teeth that are fragile or imperfect. They may be referred to as a dental “cap” as they are bonded over the tooth’s structure to add an extra layer of strength and protection.

•             Professional teeth whitening – brightening the smile for many patients is easy with over-the-counter bleaching products, but many of these fail to provide the results patients desire. For full brightening of the smile, patients should consider professional strength options.

•             Dental implant restoration – missing one or more teeth? Patients might find the dental implant to be a reliable solution. The implant is a titanium post solidified into the jaw and can be restored with a crown, bridge, or denture.

•             Composite fillings – areas of decay used to be filled with silver amalgam, but this material resulted in dark spots on the teeth that made it evident that dental work was done. Now, the team at DeAngelis Family Dentistry uses composite resin, a material that is just as strong and durable but looks like natural tooth enamel for seamless integration.
