Modern humans are exposed to a broad range of media, whether it be on the TV or through social apps. Because of the constant exposure, more and more people in Royse City are starting to become self-conscious about perceived flaws, including ones pertaining to the smile and teeth. Here at Pleasure Dental, we believe the best smile is a healthy one. However, we also want to ensure our patients and comfortable and confident with themselves. To this end, we now offer smile makeovers to change the aesthetics of a smile without affecting function.
At Pleasure Dental in Royse City, a smile makeover is a combination of several cosmetic procedures. Cosmetic dentistry is a rapidly growing subfield within general dental practices that focuses on making physical changes to the teeth rather than restoring function or preventing disease. A cosmetic change does not negatively impact oral health and wellness, but it doesn’t improve it either. Instead, it changes the exterior of the smile to make it straighter, brighter, whiter, or more even.
Everyone’s mouth is different. When you request a smile makeover, our dentist will sit down with you in an initial consultation. During this appointment, you can speak freely about what you like and dislike about your smile. Based on your statements, our dentist can then recommend treatments such as:
Teeth whitening is a simple procedure where a hydrogen peroxide solution is used to whiten the surface enamel of the teeth. Patients receive treatment during a single, one-hour appointment and can leave with teeth that are eight shades lighter than before.
During dental bonding, our dentist uses a composite resin putty to fill chips, eliminate cracks, and reshape the teeth to create an even smile. The putty is hardened at the end and functions like regular tooth enamel.
These two procedures cover individual or multiple teeth with composite resin to protect the exposed interior pulp, brighten the smile, and create an overall even appearance. The crown replaces the top of a single tooth, while veneers are thin shells that can be placed over multiple. Both procedures are designed to last for decades.
