You are only given two sets of natural teeth during your lifetime: a set of primary or baby teeth as a child, which are eventually replaced by your permanent teeth as you enter adulthood. Throughout your life, you are counseled to care for your teeth through a proper dental regimen consisting of brushing, flossing and routine dental cleanings. However, even the strictest of routines may not be able to completely prevent damage to your teeth from trauma, or deterioration over time. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry procedures now allow you to rejuvenate your smile.

The Elements of a Smile Makeover

For some, a single cosmetic procedure may be all that is needed to correct any issues they may be experiencing. Yet if your teeth seem to be misaligned, dulled and discolored, a complete smile makeover may be an option to consider. This service actually refers to a range of procedures aimed at treating various aesthetic issues, with the ultimate goal being the reconstruction of a healthy looking grin.

Some of the more common procedures included in a smile makeover include:

  • Tooth lengthening: Long teeth are often associated with youthful smiles. Through the use of porcelain veneers or composite fillings, our dentists can lengthen your teeth to portray a uniform smile line.
  • Invisalign®: An alternative to traditional orthodontia, Invisalign® treatment can resolve tooth alignment issues and help position teeth to fill unsightly gaps. Invisalign® trays are clear and fit singly over your teeth, allowing for treatment that is both effective and discreet.
  • Tooth Whitening: While some over-the-counter treatments may succeed at brightening your teeth to a degree, it is only through professional teeth whitening that you are able to achieve sustainable changes. Cosmetic dentists are able to use bleaching agents that are much more concentrated than at-home products, allowing for vastly superior results.

A smile makeover may be just what you need to restore the confidence that age or accidents may have taken from you. Here at South Hills Dental Arts, our dentists offer all of the services that you need to reclaim a youthful radiant smile.
