Unhappy with Your Smile? Consider a Smile Makeover!

Bella Smiles offers smile makeovers to patients that want to enhance their smile.

What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is done in order to correct cosmetic dental issues of all kinds. Patients at Bella Smiles can improve the appearance of teeth and transform your smile with ease and precision.

What Will My Smile Makeover Include?

Your complete smile makeover will depend on what your dentist recommends and what areas you would like corrected when it comes to your smile. Speak with your dental professional about any of the treatment options below and how they may benefit you.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin shells made out of either porcelain or composite resin that cover the front of teeth. They’re used to cover cosmetic issues, such as chips or gaps in teeth as well as discoloration and other imperfections.

Cosmetic Bonding

Cosmetic bonding is performed by your dentist in order to alter and improve the shape, color, or size of teeth. It’s a simple procedure and very affordable, so patients can have a more beautiful smile without paying the high costs of other options, such as dental veneers.

Cosmetic Orthodontics

Invisalign allows dental professionals to straighten the teeth of patients quickly. If you have minor issues with your teeth, they can be corrected with orthodontics. Some other methods of treatment may be offered by your dentist, depending on your needs and oral health.

Teeth Whitening

If your smile is dull or discolored, teeth whitening can be provided by highly-trained professionals in our office. Your teeth can become lighter in an instant, giving you confidence and pride in your smile. Take-home kits are also available, so you can whiten teeth in comfort.

Gum Contouring

A laser is using during this procedure in order to reduce any excess gum tissue and reshape your smile so that your teeth and gums look more balanced. With this procedure, your smile can be beautiful and look more harmonious than ever before.

Dental Bonding & What You Should Know

If you damage your teeth in any way, your Bella Smiles dentist may recommend dental bonding to correct the problem. Bonding is a procedure that is done in dental offices to restore the appearance and structure of teeth. A composite resin material is cemented onto the surface of teeth and hardened using a curing light. The material is then filed so that it looks like your natural teeth.

Facts About Dental Bonding

Let’s take a look at some interesting and important facts about dental bonding that patients at Bella Smiles may not be aware of.

No Anesthesia Necessary

Dental bonding is fast and very simple along with being non-invasive, so there is no need to worry about anesthesia of any kind.

Vulnerable to Stains

Bonding is a great way to cover stains on the enamel and hide discoloration. However, the material used for bonding is still susceptible to stains. They are much like your natural teeth and may stain and become more discolored over time.

Covered by Insurance

Dental bonding isn’t as expensive as other cosmetic dental procedures. Bella Smiles works with many patients, and insurance is likely to cover the cost of your procedure depending on the specifics of your insurance plan. The costs are affordable, so you can have a beautiful smile without breaking the bank.

Limited Durability

Crowns and dental veneers can last for one or more decades, but dental bonding will only last for a maximum of 10 years. The resin used in bonding isn’t durable like porcelain and other materials used in cosmetic dentistry.

Bonding is Only for Mild Cases

Your teeth may be saved from cracks or decay if the problem is treated early enough. However, more severe cases may require the application of a crown to the tooth or some other restorative dental work from your dentist.

Bonding Has Many Uses

Bonding is often used for fixing cracks in teeth as well as decay, but it can be used for other things as well. Dental bonding can hide discoloration, fill in gaps that are between teeth, lengthen teeth, and improve other aesthetic factors of your smile.
