A smile makeover typically involves a combination of various cosmetic dental procedures tailored to meet your specific needs. Dr. Sindledecker and Dr. Saltz may recommend or perform a range of options to achieve your desired outcome, ensuring that all aspects of your smile concerns are addressed.

Key cosmetic dentistry procedures and their mechanisms include:

  1. Tooth Whitening:
    • Procedure: Whitening involves a bleaching process, typically utilizing hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. This process is effective in brightening teeth, particularly those with yellow discoloration.
    • Considerations: Not suitable for individuals with sensitive teeth, gum disease, or poor enamel. Dr. Sindledecker and Dr. Saltz may advise against tooth whitening in such cases.
  2. Orthodontics:
    • Procedure: Braces are a well-established method for achieving a healthier smile. They are worn for a specific duration, usually between 12 and 24 months, to reposition teeth and correct the bite.
    • Types: Various options include traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, lingual braces, and clear aligners.
  3. Veneers:
    • Procedure: Thin, tooth-colored materials (porcelain or resin) are applied to the front surface of teeth to enhance their appearance, addressing issues related to color, shape, size, or length.
    • Applications: Ideal for discolored, chipped, worn down, misaligned, irregular, or gapped teeth.
  4. Implants/Bridges:
    • Procedure: Dental implants and bridges are utilized to replace missing or damaged teeth. Implants integrate with the jawbone, while bridges are placed over adjacent teeth.
    • Advancements: Recent advancements include highly biocompatible ceramic materials, enhancing the effectiveness and aesthetics of both implants and bridges.
