We have all seen at least one TV show or series in which a “makeover” is the main focus. Whether it is an entire makeover that includes hair, clothing, and general appearance, or something like a home makeover, we understand that everything from major to minor efforts are made and unusual techniques applied. This is true of a smile makeover as well, and Drs. Doug and Dax Martin of Martin Dentistry in Stockton, CA are happy to consult with their patients who are interested in a smile makeover.
Naturally, a makeover can be mild and require something as simple as a bit of professional quality tooth whitening in order to give a patient’s smile a picture perfect finish. Then, a patient may need more than just some cosmetic dentistry. This is why the doctors are glad to discuss the overall health and function of a smile before they delve into the cosmetic work, and it is also why a smile makeover may also involve some restorative dentistry in our offices too.
The key issue is that a smile makeover Is not meant to be purely esthetic. It begins with a healthy set of teeth and gums, and that means whatever steps are necessary to achieve that good heath will occur before the esthetic work. When the teeth and gums have been deemed the best possible, a smile makeover can then include a wide array of cosmetic dentistry treatments such as:
As you can see from this list, there could still be some restorative benefits from these treatments. After all, implant dentistry is geared restoring the function of the mouth, while also closing gaps and giving a much more attractive smile. Porcelain veneers and crowns are also great for strengthening or protecting weakened and damaged teeth in addition to providing a flawless, white smile.
Clearly, any cosmetic dentistry and smile makeover options have to be very specifically customized to the patient. It takes a skilled cosmetic dentist to provide all of the answers, an this is something that Drs. Doug and Dax Martin of Martin Dentistry are happy to offer to their patients.
