Problems rarely come one at a time. That goes for your daily life as well as your dental health. Dr. Clint Newman can help with the latter, offering state-of-the-art cosmetic and restorative dentistry to the people of Nashville, TN.
For major cosmetic problems that affect the teeth and gums, a smile makeover is usually the best option. There is, however, a treatment known as an instant smile makeover, which means great results in a fraction of the time. Let’s explore the instant smile makeover below.
About Traditional Smile Makeovers
A traditional smile makeover involves a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures that are designed to enhance a person’s overall appearance. This could include dental bonding, teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, gum contouring, and tooth-colored crowns. The goal of a traditional smile makeover is to make your smile look as perfect as possible.
What Is an Instant Smile Makeover
An instant smile makeover is a type of smile makeover that only uses porcelain veneers. These thin shells of dental ceramic can treat numerous kinds of cosmetic flaws. Since only one kind of treatment is required, planning is much simpler and can be implemented in much less time and fewer visits to the dentist.
Problems That Porcelain Veneers Can Treat
Porcelain veneers are extremely versatile. We have used porcelain veneers to treat the following problems at our Nashville practice:
- Chipped teeth
- Cracked teeth
- Tooth gaps
- Crooked teeth
- Uneven tooth size
- Smile asymmetry
How “Instant” Is an Instant Smile Makeover?
“Instant” is a relative term compared to a traditional smile makeover. A traditional smile makeover can take months to complete, with different stages of treatment completed weeks apart during this time. By contrast, an instant smile makeover only takes two visits about two weeks apart.
In terms of that timeframe, an instant smile makeover is certainly much faster and far more convenient for patients.
Ideal Candidates for an Instant Smile Makeover
Good candidates for instant smile makeover treatment are people who have aesthetic flaws that affect their front teeth. Porcelain veneers are designed to treat the prominent/front upper and lower teeth, giving your smile a pristine appearance. If you have any issues affecting the gums or severe issues with spacing, a more traditional smile makeover may be recommended instead.
The Results of Instant Smile Makeover Treatments
The results of an instant smile makeover can be dramatic. Porcelain veneers are semi-translucent, which means that light partially passes through them much like natural tooth structure. When people are at a distance or up close, they will not be able to distinguish porcelain veneers from your natural teeth.
Ultimately, an instant smile makeover can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Any flaws affecting your smile are masked by the veneers. The best part is that smile makeovers look natural, which means that no one will know that you’ve got porcelain veneers in place.
