If your teeth have a variety of cosmetic flaws that cause you to be self-conscious about your smile, we can help! A smile makeover at Cassell Dentistry is a process that we customize to your specific cosmetic needs which involve some combination of the following procedures:
We Help To Beautify Your Smile
The first step in the process of making over your smile here at Cassell Dentistry is to evaluate your smile. Just give us a call at 619-220-7475 to make an appointment for a no obligation consultation and we will set you up with an appointment. At your evaluation, we will discuss with you what you would like to achieve for your smile. We will educate you on what we can accomplish with your smile and give you all the different options for achieving the smile of your dreams.
We don’t just look at the appearance of your teeth during this consultation; we look at the overall aesthetic of your face and appearance. We believe that it is important to match the size and shape of your teeth to fit size and shape of your face.
We take the following issues into account when helping you design your new smile:
- Tooth Color: Teeth can yellow and discolor over time due to staining from food and drink. It can be hard to feel confident about a dark or dingy We can easily lighten the shade of your teeth using our tooth whitening procedure. We also realize that metal tooth restorations (like crowns) and amalgam fillings can result in a smile that you might not be happy with. We can easily replace these old tooth restorations with tooth-colored crowns and fillings. Porcelain veneers can be made to any color specifications that you would prefer and offer a great opportunity for a uniform color throughout your smile.
- Alignment and Spacing: When your teeth are crooked, crowded, or too far apart, a variety of oral health issues can arise on top of the obvious cosmetic problems. We can easily fix these issues with dental bonding or porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is a fantastic way to fix minor cosmetic issues, whereas porcelain veneers offer a much more comprehensive solution to spacing and alignment problems.
- Missing Teeth: Missing teeth is one of the biggest cosmetic concerns that we face here at Cassell Dentistry, which is why we offer so many different tooth replacement options to fit every budget and need. Dental implants offer an amazing full replacement solution that is both permanent and cosmetically pleasing. Dental crowns and bridges can be supported by a dental implant or healthy natural tooth.
- Cracking and Chipping: We put our teeth through the ringer. Teeth have to last for many decades, all the while helping to chew our food, it’s not an easy job and not surprising that they occasionally suffer from cracks and chips. We can put a new face on your teeth using dental bonding or porcelain veneers, depending on how extensive the issues are.
Dental implants are the best tooth replacement option available today. Dental implants permanently replace your teeth in every single way, from giving you a working crown that helps to chew your food while adding cosmetic value to your smile, it even replaces the root of your tooth. Dental implants can be used to support a single missing tooth with the help of a crown, or they can be paired up with several implants to support larger tooth replacement options like dental bridges or even full arches of missing teeth. That’s right; a few dental implants can fully replace every single tooth in your mouth!
Porcelain veneers are probably the most comprehensive solution that we have to alter your smile with cosmetically. Veneers are very thin strips of porcelain that are custom-crafted to fit over the front of your teeth. Because veneers fit over the front of your teeth, they cover up imperfections, provide a brighter, more beautiful shade of white, and give a consistent aesthetic.
Dental bonding can be used to alter your smile in almost as many ways as porcelain veneers. Most of the issues that we use dental bonding to fix to have to do with teeth that have suffered damage in the form of chips or cracks. We use the same composite bonding resin to perform tooth colored dental fillings as we do to perform the procedure of dental bonding. We mix the composite bonding resin in our office to match the coloration of your teeth. Dental bonds can be used to fix alignment and spacing issues as well as chips and cracks.
Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure that we offer here at Cassell Dentistry. It’s easy, cost effective, and provides impressive results quickly, which makes it an easy choice for most people who want to spruce up their smile. We offer take-home professional whitening that offers results that are far superior to any teeth whitening product that you can buy over-the-counter. We build custom whitening trays for your teeth that you wear once or twice a day in unison with a whitening compound that you place in the tray.
Teeth Reshaping & Contouring
Also known as enamelplasty, tooth reshaping and contouring is another method that we use to alter the aesthetic of your teeth. We use special dental drills to shave tiny portions of your tooth away to give it a more natural look. When teeth crack or chip, or if a tooth has grown in with an unnatural looking flair we can fix the look using tooth reshaping and contouring.
No matter what the issue is, when you work with us at Cassell Dentistry, you can rest assured that you have a highly skilled team of professionals working on your smile! Call us today at 619-220-7475 to schedule an appointment.
