At Whidbey Dental Associates, we believe that all patients deserve to enjoy life feeling confident in the look, feel, and function of their smile. For patients that have experienced serious dental damage or decay, smile makeovers by our Whidbey Island dentists are often the best way of achieving these goals.
What is a Smile Makeover?
Also known as full mouth reconstruction or rehabilitation, smile makeovers are comprehensive treatment plans that combine restorative and cosmetic dental treatments to improve the health, function, and aesthetics of a smile. A successful smile makeover is customized just for you and is a collaborative effort between you and your dentist at Whidbey Dental Associates.
What Treatments are Included in a Smile Makeover?
Whereas independent cosmetic and restorative treatments target one aspect of your smile, full mouth reconstruction takes a comprehensive approach to improving the teeth and gums. When developing smile makeover strategies, our Whidbey Island dentists consider several critical factors:
- The color of your teeth
- The condition of your teeth–are they chipped or cracked?
- Alignment and spacing
- Missing teeth
- The length and proportions of your smile as it relates to the overall harmony and balance of your face.
People love to see a bright and shining smile. Unfortunately, factors such as diet, aging and certain medications can diminish the brightness of your teeth over time. Although dingy or yellowed teeth are not necessarily indicative of poor health, a brighter smile conveys the impression of vitality and wellbeing.
It’s natural for people to desire a pearly-white smile, and we have several ways to help you achieve it. We offer a variety of take-home and in-office teeth whitening treatments.
In some situations, deep stains and discoloration prevent teeth from reaching their optimal brightness. For these individuals, our Whidbey Island dentists offer porcelain veneers to cover broken, damaged, or discolored teeth.
Chipped, Cracked, and Broken Teeth
Having a chipped or cracked tooth can make you feel extremely self-conscious about your smile and opens the door for infection. To protect your oral health, our Oak Harbor dentists can cover broken teeth with same-day CEREC® crowns and onlays. For minor chips or cracks, fillings and veneers are less invasive options that can have you smiling again before you know it.
Alignment and Spacing
A crooked smile isn’t just an aesthetic issue. Overcrowding, rotated teeth, and malocclusion (misalignment) create hard-to-reach spaces that are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and plaque. Combined with a less-than-effective at-home hygiene routine, misaligned teeth increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
To help our patients prevent malocclusion from compromising their oral health, Whidbey Dental Associates offers Invisalign, a convenient and virtually invisible alternative to braces.
Gaps not only detract from the look of your smile – they also threaten your oral health. To help preserve the well being of your smile, Whidbey Dental Associates offers dental implants as a permanent tooth replacement solution. Whether you’re missing one tooth or many, our Oak Harbor dentists can help you replace missing teeth and lost self-confidence.
