At Whidbey Dental Associates, our dentists in Oak Harbor understand the impact that your smile has on your everyday life. Furthermore, we want all of our patients to feel confident and enjoy their lives. For this reason, Dr. Wirth offers smile makeovers that will revitalize the way you think about your teeth.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover, also known as full mouth reconstruction or complete mouth rehabilitation, is a combination of different cosmetic and restorative treatments that we use to design a smile that’s equally healthy and functional. Dr. Wirth will work with you to create an in-depth treatment plan that’s based on your smile dreams and aspirations.
For a smile makeover to be successful, you and Dr. Wirth must be on the same page. Ultimately, he wants to give you the smile that you’ve always wanted, and he’ll do everything he can to make that happen.
A Smile Makeover Might Be Right for You, If:
You Want to Brighten Your Smile
One of the first aspects people notice about you is your smile. For this reason, it’s crucial to maintain a vibrant, glowing appearance. However, certain factors can suffocate the brightness of your teeth over time, such as your diet, age, and certain medications.
Furthermore, dingy or yellow teeth aren’t necessarily indicative of poor health, but a radiant smile conveys impressions of vitality and well-being—thus, people desire a pearly white smile. At Whidbey Dental Associates, we provide two ways to brighten your smile: at-home whitening and professional in-office whitening.
In some instances, a patient’s teeth might have deep, incurable stains that prevent teeth from reaching optimal brightness. Here, Dr. Wirth might recommend porcelain veneers to provide an attractive cover for your damaged smile.
You Want to Restore Chipped, Cracked, or Broken Teeth
The goal of a smile makeover is to improve the teeth and gums so that they look and feel like your natural smile. Sometimes our patients have teeth that are chipped, broken, decayed, or damaged in some way. These corrupt teeth don’t only affect the aesthetics of your smile, but they can lead to pain, soreness, and eventually tooth loss.
If you’re not satisfied with your smile, Dr. Wirth can help. He has an array of services that we can use to restore your teeth, including:
- Crowns & Onlays: An onlay is a prosthetic that covers the cusps of your teeth. Likewise, a crown is a prosthetic that covers the entire tooth. At Whidbey Dental Associates, we offer same-day restorations from CEREC, so you’ll have an immediate new addition to your smile.
- Fillings: For minor chips or cracks, our Oak Harbor dentist might advise a little filling. This conventional treatment is an excellent way to touch up any teeth that may worsen without treatment.
- Veneers: Dr. Wirth applies a beautiful porcelain cover on the surfaces of your teeth. These covers protect your damaged tooth and also renew the color of your smile as well.
You Want to Realign Your Smile
At Whidbey Dental Associates, a crooked smile isn’t just an aesthetic problem. Dr. Wirth has seen overcrowded, rotated teeth, and malocclusion (misalignment) create hard-to-reach areas, making them an ideal breeding ground for harmful bacteria and plaque. Ultimately, misaligned teeth increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
For anyone suffering from alignment or spacing issues, Dr. Wirth can help by offering Invisalign® treatment. Invisalign is a remarkable technology that can straighten your smile twice as fast as traditional metal braces. Moreover, Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible, and you can remove them to eat, drink, and clean.
You Want to Fill the Gaps Caused by Missing Teeth
Beyond ruining the appearance of your smile, gaps left behind from missing teeth can threaten your oral health as well. At Whidbey Dental Associates, we can preserve the well-being of your smile with a permanent tooth replacement option like dental implants. This advanced restoration is the healthiest way to fix the gaps in your smile because it’s the only one that stimulates healthy jawbone growth.
