Flaws that Smile Makeovers Can Treat

Posted on May 6, 2011 — by Thomas G. Zarger Jr., D.D.S.

If you have minor dental flaws or major dental problems, they can be fixed in a smile makeover. The smile makeover essentially combines various dental treatments and disciplines together in order to enhance overall dental health and aesthetics. The team here at our Knoxville cosmetic dentistry office would like to take a brief minute right now to cover the basic dental flaws that a smile makeover can handle.

Tooth Decay and Cavities

There are plenty of options for dealing with cavities and tooth decay. For basic cavities, dental fillings are a great option. Tooth decay on the front of a tooth can be best dealt with using dentla bonding, and substantial tooth decay that’s too large for fillings can be addressed through inlays and onlays.

Chipped and Cracked Teeth

Minor chips and cracks on a tooth can be best at addressed through the use of dental bonding. When that’s not an option, porcelain veneers just might do the trick. For any major damage to a tooth (whether due to injury or decay), there’s always dental crowns.

Tooth Discoloration and Dental Stains

For general stains on the teeth, consider teeth whitening. Professional teeth whitening is able to brighten a smile by up to ten shades in just one visit. For really serious stains, consider Knoxville porcelain veneers to mask the discoloration from view.

Missing Teeth

If you are missing teeth, there are plenty of options to keep in mind. Removable dental bridges and dentures are certainly a serviceable answer, but you may want to consider getting dental implants. Dental implants serve as artificial tooth roots, which means a secure hold for dental restorations. They will also help prevent major dental health problems down the road.

Crooked Teeth

If you have teeth that are slightly uneven or misaligned, porcelain veneers may be able to effectively address that matter. For more substantial tooth misalignment or crookedness, your best bet is to get orthodontic treatment of some kind, such as Invisalign® or traditional braces.
