What Is a Smile Makeover?
You’ve heard of a personal makeover, in which a person’s wardrobe, hair, and entire appearance is transformed to astonishing effect.
A smile makeover is the same idea, but applies to the teeth and gums only. It is a customized treatment plan consisting of a combination of cosmetic dental procedures determined by you with the help of Dr. Drake.
We will consider your budget, your particular dental issues, and your smile goals when deciding which techniques will be the most appropriate in your case.
What Procedures are Part of a Smile Makeover?
At Aberdeen Smiles, we offer several cosmetic dentistry techniques, any of which can be included in your smile makeover.
Tooth bonding is a relatively simple, painless, and cost-effective technique that fixes many of the same issues as dental veneers. The doctor uses a composite resin, precisely matched to the color of your teeth, to cover minor cosmetic flaws like chips, cracks, and spots of discoloration. The procedure may even be used to close unwanted gaps or to alter the shape of a tooth.The procedure is much less expensive than veneers, and results generally last a few years.
We offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. Our Zoom in-office Whitening system is fast and effective, getting your teeth as much as eight shades whiter in a single office visit. If you are in a hurry for that dazzling smile, this is your best option.
The Venus White at-home system is an excellent choice if you want to whiten your teeth in the privacy of your home or want more gradual (but still stunning) results.
Both systems are professional strength, delivering much better results than drugstore kits, which have lower concentrations of whitening agent.
If you want a dramatic, dazzling, movie star smile, dental veneers are the way to go. Veneers are custom-crafted thin porcelain shells that cover the fronts of your teeth and hide all sorts of dental woes: chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. They are also effective at hiding mildly crooked teeth.
At Aberdeen Smiles, we use Arrowhead e.max porcelain veneers. They are beautiful, durable, and with proper care will last decades.
Teeth Contouring and Crown Lengthening
Teeth contouring is a procedure in which we remove small amounts of tooth enamel for subtle cosmetic effect. It’s used for fixing teeth that are mildly misshapen, that overlap, that have small chips or uneven spots, and that are too long. Teeth contouring is easy and fast, typically taking around thirty minutes.
Crown lengthening is a technique we use to remove gum tissue and expose more of the tooth around the root — either for cosmetic reasons or to provide a better fit for a crown.
Gum Reshaping (Gummy Smile Treatment)
When you smile in the mirror, do you see lots of gum and not much else? If you are unhappy with your “gummy smile,” we can help with gum reshaping. Dr. Drake use a laser for gum treatments, which means less pain, faster healing, and precise results. After your procedure, you will see a perfect balance of gum and teeth in your smile.
If you have crooked or misaligned teeth and have been dragging your feet about looking into orthodontics, now’s the time. At Aberdeen Smiles, we offer Invisalign. This groundbreaking system uses a series of totally removable clear plastic aligners to move your teeth. No metal, no brackets, no wires.
Invisalign is more discreet than traditional braces — virtually invisible, in fact — more comfortable to wear, and generally faster acting. You take out your aligner for eating and cleaning, so you can chow down on your favorite foods and brush and floss like you always have.
