Is Teeth Whitening part of a Smile Makeover?
If your teeth have become somewhat stained, teeth whitening could be part of your smile makeover, in which case it should be done early on. That is because Dr. Marshall will want to match the porcelain used to your natural tooth color. If it needs brightening, that should be done before any porcelain restorations because dental porcelain does not respond to hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, and will retain its original shade of white.
Possible Smile Makeover Procedures
- Porcelain veneers – to mask little defects like a small gap between the two front teeth or small chips. The veneers are wafer thin yet very strong, and will last for many years.
- Tooth-colored fillings – to replace old metal fillings. Gray amalgam does not flatter anybody’s smile. Your new fillings can be porcelain or white dental composite.
- Dental crowns – to provide new surfaces for a tooth that is badly damaged. If you have gold crowns, we can replace them with porcelain crowns that will blend beautifully with your natural teeth.
- Dental bonding – to quickly correct small defects. It can be an alternative to veneers, filling small chips or slightly changing the shape of one or more teeth.
There are other possible procedures for a smile makeover depending on your needs and preferences. You and Dr. Marshall will be designing it before any work is begun, and you will know exactly what is being done and why.
