Home improvement shows have always been popular. Even if you don’t have any plans for a project of your own, it’s still impressive to see how much better a room or a whole house can look when skilled individuals work on it.
But there’s something even closer than our homes that can benefit from a makeover as well. If you aren’t happy with your teeth, then you may want to consider a smile makeover.
This is one of the many services we offer at Marineland Dental Care. Our dentist has helped several patients in and around Kennewick, WA, and we know that we can help you, too.
Assess The Situation
Before you can begin any home improvement project, you need to know where you are starting.
If you are considering a smile makeover, the first step is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Hadley. During your visit, he will examine your teeth. We may need to evaluate the health of your jaw as well.
We can discuss what you don’t like about your smile, and what you would like to change. Before you commit to anything, we want you to understand the options that are available to you. One thing we have learned in our decades of practice is that every patient is different. Your treatment should be something you are comfortable with.
Make A Plan
Once we understand where you are and where you would like your smile to be, we can start developing a plan.
Here are some examples of things that we can do for you:
- Fix chipped, broken, or worn down teeth
Your smile may have been great years ago, but the years may not have been kind to your teeth. Your teeth may have been damaged in an accident. Your teeth may have become worn down as a result of habitual behavior or alignment issues.
No matter the reason, we have ways of getting your smile back to its original condition, and maybe even a little better.
- Whiten discolored teeth
Teeth become discolored for a lot of reasons.
Staining occurs naturally over time with almost any food or drink. Coffee, soft drinks, tea, and wine are among the most common offenders. Pasta sauces and other dark sauces can take a toll as well.
One of worst culprits with regard to discoloration is tobacco use. Smoking and using smokeless tobacco leave behind chemicals and residue that can change the color of your teeth much faster than most foods.
Discoloration also can occur as a result of injuries, tooth decay, illness, and side effects of medication.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with that discoloration. If you want a whiter, brighter smile, then we can help.
- Replace missing teeth
Teeth can fall out, get knocked out, or be pulled if they are too damaged to save with another treatment.
Dental crowns and bridges can be used to replace one or more teeth. If you are missing a complete arch, then dentures are a fine option as well.
- Restore the function of your teeth
Smile makeovers aren’t just about cosmetic issues. Replacing your teeth can go hand-in-hand with restoring the full function of your teeth as well.
This is where dental implants and mini implants can make a big difference.
- Combine our efforts
A smile makeover can include a procedure that can be completed in a single visit, or it may be a more complex process involving multiple services. If you are interested in making big changes to your smile, we can do that by combining more than one of our services to help you.
Do The Work
Once we have developed a plan to improve your smile, including a treatment that works for you, then we can get started.
We will make an appointment or appointments, whichever is appropriate. Then, we each need to do our jobs.
We will provide the professional expertise, and you need to show up for your appointments. You may need to follow some at-home care directions.
Working together, we are confident that we can give you a smile that you are proud to share with others in person and in “selfies” on social media.
