What is smile design?
Smile design is a procedure that makes your teeth and gums more aesthetically pleasing. It combines several cosmetic dentistry techniques to make your smile healthier, more balanced, and symmetrical.
Prior to developing a custom treatment plan, the team takes a variety of factors into account, including your hair color, complexion, and overall facial appearance. The team also assesses your teeth, including their color, width, length, and shape.
What does smile design involve?
No two smile design treatment plans are exactly alike. At the practice of Judy Mejido DMD PA, the team makes recommendations based on your dental health history, age, and goals.
Following an oral exam and a discussion about your current smile, the team might recommend:
If you have crowded or crooked teeth or a misaligned jaw, the team might recommend Invisalign. Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that gradually aligns your teeth and corrects your bite. It uses clear, plastic aligners that are removable, meaning you’re still able to eat your favorite foods.
If you develop a cavity or severely damage a tooth, you might benefit from cosmetic crowns. Crowns are oral prosthetics that cover a molar or premolar. Once bonded in place, a crown restores your tooth to its near-original size, strength, and shape.
Veneers are thin shells made of durable materials like composite resin or porcelain. When applied to your natural teeth, they provide a safe and convenient way to mask oral imperfections like staining, discoloration, and gaps. With regular checkups and good oral hygiene, veneers can last for up to 15 years.
If you have yellow, dingy, or discolored teeth, consider teeth whitening. Teeth whitening uses FDA-approved bleaching solutions to transform your smile. Though teeth whitening isn’t permanent, results typically last for four to six months and sometimes longer. The team offers both in-office whitening and take-home teeth whitening trays.
Is smile design right for me?
Anyone who feels self-conscious about the color, condition, or general appearance of their teeth and gums can benefit from smile design. Using their years of knowledge and expertise, the team can help you achieve a brilliant, Hollywood-worthy smile.
