One of the most common concerns voiced by the patients at the Jacksonville Center for Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry is dissatisfaction over the appearance of their smile. Dr. William Gielincki, a top prosthodontist in Jacksonville, FL, has helped patients improve the look and function of teeth with exceptional smile makeover services. Understanding the risks and benefits associated with smile makeovers and cosmetic dentistry will help you make the choice that is right for you and your oral health.

What Are Your Treatment Goals?

Having a clear idea about how you would like to improve your smile is a good place to start. You can then learn about the treatments that address those concerns as well as any potential drawbacks associated with them. For instance, clinical teeth whitening treatments can significantly brighten tooth enamel for a whiter smile. However, this treatment will have little effect on the appearance of a black or brown tooth discolored by infection. Choosing the right cosmetic service helps patients avoid the risk of disappointment with treatment outcome and the expense of ineffective treatments. In this case, a different dental service will have to be pursued.

Improving Dental Health and Appearance

Cosmetic dentistry and traditional dentistry can have distinct health benefits. Treatments such as laser gum surgery can improve the appearance of your smile while also improving your overall dental health. These are just some of the cosmetic treatments that can also help improve your overall oral health:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Fixing cracks and rough enamel with tooth-colored material
  • Reshaping teeth for a more uniform appearance
  • Closing gaps between teeth
  • Setting porcelain crowns over broken or chipped teeth
