There are very few naturally-occuring perfect smiles. For everyone else, Dr. Craig Ellsworth of Family Dental of Spokane Valley provides customized Smile Makeover services to give them the gorgeous smile they’ve always wanted.
What is a Smile Makeover?
Smile Makeovers combine a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry techniques and orthodontics (tooth straightening) as needed.
Everyone’s needs are different, and there’s no accurate way to predict what will be necessary to give you your dream smile without a thorough examination and digital X-rays. However, Smile Makeovers can include any or all of the following.
The dental veneers that Dr. Ellsworth uses are extremely thin pieces of porcelain that cover the fronts of your teeth. Porcelain reflects light in such a way that it presents a very lifelike appearance. Veneers can cover a host of issues, including cracks, chips, stains, discolorations, and even small gaps between teeth. Today’s veneers are very durable and will last for many years with proper care.
For professional results, consult a professional. Dr. Ellsworth uses Opalescence, a trusted whitening product with several different formulations, for our in-home whitening services. He’ll help you choose the formulation that is best for your needs. With Opalescence, you can experience superior whitening results in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Teeth Contouring/Crown Lengthening
This is about as close to instant results as you can get. Drawing on his extensive experience and advanced training, Dr. Ellsworth will carefully use a laser contour your teeth to remove minor stains and flaws from your teeth. Dental enamel has no nerve endings, so expect a pain-free experience. And to ensure that the right amount of your now-beautiful teeth are visible, Dr. Ellsworth will remove excess gum tissue to help perfect your smile.
Gum Reshaping/Gummy Smile Treatment
A beautiful smile requires the right balance of teeth and gums. For people who are unhappy with that balance in their smile, Dr. Ellsworth provides gum reshaping to present a more pleasing appearance, and gummy smile treatment to remove excess gum tissue. Using a laser to perform these procedures means minimal to no bleeding, little chance of infection, and minor, if any pain afterwards.
Tooth bonding is another of those instant results procedures. Tooth bonding uses a material that’s shaded to match your existing teeth to conceal chips, crack, stains, discolorations. Tooth bonding can also straighten slight irregularities in teeth and help conceal gaps between teeth. The procedure is completely painless and very quick. If you’re looking for a low-cost improvement for your smile, this may be the option for you.
In some cases, misaligned teeth can defeat all efforts to have a beautiful smile. At Family Dental of Spokane Valley, Dr. Ellsworth offers both traditional braces and other, more comfortable orthodontics options. These alternatives include Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and Six Month Smiles. An added advantage of clear aligners is that no one has to know that you’re wearing them!
