What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is an individualized treatment plan made up of the cosmetic dentistry procedures that will best fit your smile aspirations and budget. At Edgewood Dental Care, we offer a variety of options you may want to include.
Invented in 1930’s Hollywood to make actors’ teeth look good on the silver screen, dental veneers are one of the most dramatic ways to improve your smile. In one procedure, veneers cover a host of blemishes and flaws: chips, discoloration, worn-down and uneven teeth, minor misalignment problems, gaps.
Veneers are extremely thin shells made out of porcelain. They are custom-made to fit your mouth, and they look and reflect light just like real teeth.
If you decide you want dental veneers, one of our dentists will conduct a thorough examination and take digital X-rays to assess the condition of your mouth and make sure you are a good candidate.
We will prepare your teeth by removing a small amount of enamel — a procedure that’s painless under local anesthesia. We have other sedation options available if you are nervous. We will take impressions, which will be used to craft your custom veneers.
After your veneers are back from the dental lab, you will come to our office to have them placed. We will bond them to the fronts of your teeth and polish them until they gleam.
With proper care, your gorgeous new veneers will last up to twenty years.
Dental bonding is a relatively simple and inexpensive procedure to cover small cosmetic flaws in your teeth, including chips, cracks, discoloration, gaps, and very minor alignment problems. We take a tooth-colored composite resin — much like the material used in fillings — apply it to the tooth, sculpt it into the desired shape, and then harden and polish it. The procedure can be completed in one visit and in most cases, no anesthesia is required.
If you don’t like the look of your gums, we can use our state-of-the-art LANAP laser to even out the gumline or remove unwanted tissue. The use of the laser makes the procedure scalpel-free and fast-healing with minimal discomfort. We will administer local anesthesia and can provide dental sedation if you’d like.
At Edgewood Dental Care, we offer a variety of teeth whitening systems.
Our KoR take-home treatment whitens your teeth as you sleep. We will provide you with custom-made bleaching trays that you wear at night for two weeks. The results are dramatic — up to sixteen shades whiter!
Laser Deep Bleaching is an in-office procedure that uses a laser-activated whitening solution to zap away stains.
Zoom! Whitening is another in-office option we offer. This quick-working system lightens your teeth up to eight shades in just 45 minutes.
We also offer enamel microabrasion, a technique that eliminates stains by removing small bits of enamel. This treatment is often combined with chemical whitening.
For patients with crooked, crowded, or misaligned teeth, Edgewood Dental Care offers a variety of orthodontic options. We have full-banded and traditional braces, which are great options for teens or anyone with more severe orthodontic problems.
Clear ceramic braces function much like traditional braces, but they are more discrete on the teeth.
And we have two short-term orthodontic products. Invisalign clear aligners are removable, mouthguard-like trays that are virtually invisible on the teeth as they work their magic. And Fastbraces utilizes brackets that attach to the teeth like traditional braces, but they are worn for only a brief period of time.
