Makeover Dentistry changes people’s appearance and attitude. Dr. Paul Davey, Sugar Land dentist at Texas Got Smile, creatively remakes teeth for smiles that look great and function well.
What would you change about your smile?
Do you notice other people’s smiles? They notice yours, too, especially if marred by gaps, cracks, discolorations and poor alignment. A recent study conducted by Kelton Research found that American adults respond positively to individuals with attractive smiles. In fact, they perceive that nice smiles equal nice people!
So, how your smile looks impacts your relationships, first impressions and job advancement, not to mention how you feel about yourself. Would you like to improve what people see when you smile?
With restorative and cosmetic procedures, you can makeover your smile. Dr. Paul Davey has several ways to improve aesthetics. As a graduate of the well-reputed Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), and dealing exclusively with LVI-trained labs, Dr. Davey refurbishes teeth and gums for pleasing and realistic-looking:
- tooth shape
- position and alignment
- overall facial appearance
Makeovers start with an examination
Dr. Davey examines each makeover patient to ensure good dental health. If problems exist he can address them with contemporary restorative techniques such as tooth-colored fillings, porcelain crowns, CAT-SCAN guided dental implants and bridgework. These procedures are the “heavy lifting” part of a smile makeover, but so important to ensure a healthy foundation for improved aesthetics.
The cosmetic portion of a smile makeover involves a treatment plan which considers Dr. Davey’s findings and also the patient’s vision for his smile.
The Sugar Land dentist may employ one or more techniques to improve aesthetics and may preview the finished smile through sophisticated computer imaging. Here are the cosmetic dentistry services frequently involved in remodeling a smile.
Porcelain veneers Also called “instant orthodontics” or dental laminates, veneers cover the front side of healthy teeth that have cosmetic imperfections. These super-thin shells of beautiful, tooth-colored porcelain mask heavy stains, chips, cracks, spacing issues and crowding. The finished appearance is natural-looking but perfect for the individual’s desired new smile. Dr. Davey requires 2 to 3 visits to complete the process, and the laminates stay in place for years with good hygiene.
Professional teeth whitening Whether at home or at the dental office, teeth whitening uses concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel to eliminate stains from food, smoking, age and other factors. Safe for soft tissues and enamel, whitening improves tooth color by as much as 8 shades.
Invisalign clear aligners Address oral health and appearance with Invisalign clear braces. BPA-free, customized aligners straighten a variety of orthodontic problems faster than traditional braces. Plus, because aligners are removable, hygiene and meals are a breeze. Treatment with Invisalign makes over a smile in as little as 9 to 18 months–about half the time of metal or ceramic braces.
