A beautiful smile can increase your self-esteem and improve the impression you make on others. Over the years, multiple cosmetic flaws such as misshapen teeth and stains may have appeared in your mouth. After checking your teeth, Dr. Piccione can develop a smile makeover that combines several cosmetic and restorative treatments in order to address these issues. To begin your smile makeover in Sunnyvale, get in touch with our practice today; we’ll schedule a consultation so that we can figure out exactly what your smile needs.
Your teeth are extremely resilient, but even they can become worn down, damaged, or misshapen. They can also move out of their intended position, leading to a smile that’s misaligned, uneven, or filled with gaps. These imperfections tend to be highly noticeable and can affect your confidence in your appearance. By placing porcelain veneers on strategic teeth, Dr. Piccione can dramatically improve the overall shape of your grin in a way that looks completely natural. As a side effect, the veneers will also hide cracks and other flaws, and they will not stain as easily as natural teeth.
As the enamel protecting a tooth wears down or is chipped away, the overall dental structure gets weaker. We can use dental crowns made out of natural-looking porcelain to strengthen such teeth so that they can still be used to bite and chew.
If some teeth have gone missing, both your appearance and your ability to perform everyday tasks with your mouth (such as speaking) could be adversely affected. Gaps can be filled in with a dental bridge, although when possible we’ll recommend a restoration supported by an implant so that you end up with a structurally sound smile.
Dark-colored foods and beverages can penetrate your enamel and leave stains that are very difficult to remove, causing your smile to darken over time. We can provide you with a custom-made Opalescence whitening kit that you can use at home in order to remove the source of the discoloration. This treatment can dramatically brighten your teeth by several shades, and the results can last for several years. For stains that resist whitening, porcelain veneers can be placed instead; not only are they designed to have the ideal shade for your mouth, but they’ll also resist stains.
You may be a candidate for a smile makeover if you are currently unhappy with how your teeth look. We’ll need to evaluate your oral health, but of course, the process can also be used to treat and repair damaged teeth. No matter if you only have one dental imperfection or several you want to address, Dr. Piccione will help you find the right procedures to produce the most aesthetically pleasing results. Call our office if you notice that you have several misaligned, discolored, worn down, chipped, or uneven teeth.
