Instant Smile Makeover Options - Plymouth, NH
Few people are born with perfect smiles. In fact, even people with healthy smiles that look generally good may have minor imperfections that they wish they could fix. It may be a stain or a prominent gap, or maybe teeth are asymmetrical. That’s when Plymouth, NH cosmetic dentist Dr. Joan Kirschner can perform a smile makeover. This combination of multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures can work wonders for your smile.
In recent years, instant smile makeovers have become more popular, able to achieve the outcomes of a traditional smile makeover in just a fraction of the time. Let’s discuss the basics of an instant smile makeover below. You may feel that an instant smile makeover is just what you need.
What Is an Instant Smile Makeover?
An instant smile makeover refers to a smile makeover that is achieved solely through the use of porcelain veneers. These thin shells of tooth-colored dental ceramic can mask all sorts of imperfections that affect your smile.
Using just porcelain veneers, we can achieve some staggering results that are comparable to traditional smile makeover treatments.
What Cosmetic Flaws Can Porcelain Veneers Treat?
Porcelain veneers are able to treat the following cosmetic flaws affecting your front teeth:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Small stains
- Tooth discoloration
- Tooth gaps
- Crooked teeth
- Spacing issues
- Tooth asymmetry
Good Candidates for Instant Smile Makeovers
Ideal candidates for instant smile makeover treatment are people who suffer from cosmetic issues that impact the overall appearance of their teeth. If a patient suffers from dental health problems, a restorative option rather than porcelain veneers will be used instead.
During the consultation process at Plymouth General Dentistry, we’ll also make sure that patients have sufficient tooth enamel present. The procedure for placing veneers requires a small amount of tooth enamel to be removed in order to fit the veneer in place. If patients do not have sufficient enamel structure or their teeth are weak, a different treatment option will need to be considered.
How Long Does an Instant Smile Makeover Take?
An instant smile makeover is much faster than a traditional smile makeover. A normal smile makeover can take months to complete given the different procedures performed. An instant smile makeover only requires two dental visits about two weeks apart. The first visit is to prep the teeth and take impressions, while the second visit is to place the finished veneers.
An instant smile makeover may not be “instant” per se, but it is instant in a relative sense.
The Results of Instant Smile Makeovers
The results of an instant smile makeover can be extremely dramatic. Since porcelain veneers are semi-translucent, they will blend in seamlessly with your natural tooth structure. Up close, people will not be able to tell you have veneers in place. The material even reacts to natural and artificial light just like natural teeth.
Thanks to veneers, people who were self-conscious about their smile experience renewed confidence and a greater overall sense of self. It’s a wonder what porcelain veneers can achieve.
