Everyone deserves to have a beautiful smile that enhances their overall appearance and makes them feel confident. When you smile confidently, it can open new doors, both personally and professionally.
Dr. Jerry M. Strauss, our knowledgeable and talented dentist at Aesthetic Dental Care of New Jersey, has many years of experience transforming smiles through a process known as a smile makeover. With our help, you can enjoy the picture-perfect smile you have always wanted.
What a Smile Makeover Can Improve
A smile makeover is intended to address multiple aesthetic issues with the teeth and smile, including any of the following:
- Slightly chipped or cracked teeth
- Worn teeth
- Abnormally shaped or sized teeth
- Stained or discolored teeth
- Small spaces between the teeth
- Slight crowding or crookedness in the teeth
- Excessive gum tissue (i.e., a “gummy smile”)
- Uneven gumline
Instead of correcting these problems one at a time, never feeling fully confident in your entire smile, a smile makeover can address all of them in a single process — creating a smile that is simply stunning. To see the outstanding results of our smile makeover treatments, view our smile gallery.
Common Smile Makeover Treatments
Every smile makeover is unique as it is tailored to the needs of the individual patient. Your smile makeover treatment plan will be designed to remedy the specific issues you bring up to Dr. Strauss.
Your smile makeover could include any combination of the following:
Teeth whitening: One of the hallmarks of an attractive smile is bright, white teeth! Teeth whitening treatment is designed to lighten stains and discoloration due to consuming certain foods and beverages, smoking, and taking medications like tetracycline. Chairside whitening treatment can be performed in our office in less than an hour, brightening teeth up to eight shades or more. Another option is to use customized take-home whitening trays to whiten in the comfort of your own home (although it takes longer to see results from whitening at home).
The placement of porcelain veneers: Veneers are extremely versatile and can mask a multitude of superficial flaws, including small chips, cracks, stains and spaces between the teeth. Veneers can also create uniformity in tooth shape or length. You may opt to have one veneer placed over an abnormal-looking tooth or a set of veneers placed over the teeth that prominently show when you smile.
Dental bonding: Bonding is a quick and simple way to cover up slight chips, cracks and stains. It can also close the spaces between teeth. A composite resin material is applied to the tooth and sculpted as needed to improve the appearance of the tooth.
Gum recontouring: Attractive gums frame and hug the teeth without drawing attention away from the teeth. Gum recontouring can correct an uneven gumline or remove excess tissue that gives the smile a “gummy” appearance.
Invisalign® treatment: Some smile makeovers include treatment with Invisalign treatment, a system designed to improve crooked or crowded teeth. It requires wearing clear plastic aligners every day for up to a year, which put slight pressure on the teeth to move them into the desired positions.
