Your smile can have a profound effect on your self-confidence and interactions with the people around you. If you’re unhappy with one or several aspects of your smile, Dr. Mia Fitzgerald can help. The talented cosmetic dentist offers an array of cosmetic treatments, which are often performed together as part of a smile makeover. Consisting of two or more cosmetic dentistry treatments, smile makeover simultaneously addresses various cosmetic imperfections of the teeth and gums for transformative results.
No two smile makeovers are alike. Upon evaluating your teeth and discussing your goals, Dr. Fitzgerald can design a treatment plan that is as unique as you are.
What Does Smile Makeover Accomplish?
Smile makeover can accomplish any of the following:
- Repair broken, chipped or cracked teeth
- Fill small gaps or spaces between teeth
- Improve alignment between teeth
- Conceal worn tooth enamel
- Lighten discolored or yellow teeth
- Replace missing teeth
- Improve the shape and size of teeth
Cosmetic Procedures Included in Smile Makeover
Dr. Fitzgerald plans and performs all cosmetic dental treatments using cutting-edge technology and the highest quality dental materials for the best results. This includes digital X-rays and high-quality dental restorations. Depending on your specific case, your smile makeover can include two or more of the following:
In-office teeth whitening involves applying a bleaching agent to the teeth to lift deep stains and discoloration. Treatment can be completed in an hour and results are almost instantaneous — teeth can be lightened up to eight shades! Custom-made take-home whitening trays are also available so you can touch-up your smile from time to time.
Using a composite resin material, dental bonding masks small chips, cracks, spaces, stains, worn enamel and other minor cosmetic issues for a more attractive smile. Dental bonding is a quick and cost-effective procedure that can be used to transform the appearance of an individual tooth or several teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings are an attractive solution to cavities. Made of composite resin, tooth-colored fillings match the shade of surrounding tooth enamel for a seamless appearance. Dr. Fitzgerald can use tooth-colored fillings to repair damaged, misshapen teeth, treat current cavities or to replace old amalgam (metal) fillings.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are slipped over the front surface of teeth to hide chips, cracks, small spaces, stains and damaged tooth enamel. Because veneers improve the shape and size of teeth, they can also be used to create the appearance of a straighter and more aligned smile.
Dental crowns are used to repair broken and damaged teeth, or replace them altogether. Traditional dental crowns are made of metal or gold, which although effective in restoring normal biting function, are unattractive in appearance. Porcelain crowns are strong, durable and — thanks to the translucent quality of porcelain — virtually indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel. Dr. Fitzgerald is able to plan, create and place beautiful, lifelike porcelain crowns in a single dental appointment with the innovative CEREC technology.
