Smile Makeovers

Your smile tells the world a great deal about you. A person with a great smile looks self-confident and welcoming. If your smile is not the best it could be, you’ll want to consider having a smile makeover.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover consultation gets you and Dr. Martin together as a team to provide you with the loveliest smile possible. If your teeth are crooked, you need to work toward straightening them. Braces and invisible trays straighten misaligned teeth. If you have missing teeth, there remain several ways of replacing these teeth, from dentures to dental implants. Several types of veneers are available to people with cracked, broken or otherwise unsightly teeth. Not only can a smile makeover improve the way your teeth look, but such a process can also deal with any disease or other problems you have with your teeth.

Who Needs a Smile Makeover?

Unless your teeth are naturally perfect, you can use a smile makeover. If your teeth are crooked or misaligned, using braces or invisible trays can straighten your teeth and improve your smile. Nearly everyone can benefit from teeth whitening. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, Dr. Martin can help you choose the best way to replace those missing teeth.

When you decide it is time for your smile makeover, contact Dr. Chris. He can help you determine how to safely improve your smile to help you look your very best.


Porcelain Veneers

In the past, if you have wanted to correct minor dental problems to improve the appearance of your smile, you had to go through invasive  and potentially costly procedures. Thankfully, porcelain veneers are a viable alternative for correcting these problems in order to obtain a smile that you can feel proud to show off.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of the material that are lab-customized to fit your smile. Once they are created specifically for you, the veneers will be cemented onto the fronts of your teeth to correct minor problems that otherwise cause your smile to look discolored and unsightly.

Why Have Veneers Placed?

Veneers do a wonderful job of correcting minor cosmetic problems that would otherwise be extensive to rectify. The procedure is quick, easy and affordable, and veneers can last up to 10 years before needing to be replaced. Because of this, porcelain veneers are essential for having a smile that you can feel proud to show off.

Who is a Good Candidate for Veneers?

Before having veneers created and placed, the dentist at Contemporary Dental Care of Mt. Vernon will do an exam to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Those who are good candidates for porcelain veneers may have one or more of the following problems and are looking for a quick, noninvasive fix:

  • Chipping
  • Staining and Discoloration
  • Gaps in Between Teeth
  • Minor Cracks

Teeth Whitening

Whether you are a heavy smoker or drink a lot of dark beverages or if you’re just unhappy with the color of your teeth, whitening can be beneficial in that it removes years worth of staining and discoloration to perfect your smile to a whiter and brighter luster. Professional whitening is preferred because it offers more lasting results when compared to over-the-counter products that you might have purchased in the past.

Why Choose Professional Teeth Whitening?

Professional teeth whitening is preferred over at-home products you might use because it is customized to your unique needs. No matter how stained or discolored your teeth are, whitening can work wonders to quickly and effectively remove this staining without causing severe sensitivity like many other products can do when used.

Who is a Good Candidate for Whitening?

Anyone who is unhappy with their smile is a good candidate for teeth whitening. This is obviously a procedure that is more geared towards older teens and adults, so this is something to keep in mind when choosing this cosmetic option. Keep in mind because whitening is a cosmetic procedure, it is often not covered under insurance. However, if you feel it is time to change your appearance for the better and are tired of using mediocre at-home products to get the job done, we here at Contemporary Dental Care of Mt. Vernon are more than happy to help you achieve your goals.
