When you are ready to improve the appearance of your smile, our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentists are here to provide you with all of the information, support, and care that you need to make your dream smile a reality. Today we’re going to be talking about key objectives our team considers when planning aesthetic treatment. Let’s get started!
Repair Existing Damage
The number one priority when beginning treatment is to address any infected or damaged dental tissue, so that it doesn’t put the rest of your smile at risk. In many cases, we are able to address dental aesthetic and dental health issues simultaneously. If, for example, you’re have cracked enamel, our team will use composite resin or porcelain to repair your tooth while giving your tooth a fresh, healthy, and clean appearance.
Whiten & Brighten
Many of us associate white enamel with teeth that are young and healthy. Because dental enamel can accumulate discoloration over time, it is very common for adult patients to report that their teeth look darker or dingier than they’d like. The good news is that there are a number of treatment options available to combat this issue. Some options, like topical whitening gels, actually lift stains from the tooth’s surface. Alternatively, you may choose to cover unsightly enamel with composite resin or porcelain. No matter what you choose, you can quickly enjoy a smile that is whiter and more luminous than before!
Another aesthetic issue to consider is how well-balanced and proportional your teeth appear. Over-sized or disproportionately small teeth can make your entire smile appear out of whack. There are a number of ways to deal with this kind of imbalance—from gum tissue reshaping, to composite resin application, to placing porcelain veneers.
Taking the time to thoroughly pre-plan the treatment process helps to ensure success. As always our Toluca Lake cosmetic dentists are happy to give you any additional information you may need. Give us a call to get started!
