Smile MakeoverPerhaps your smile has changed over time, or your teeth have become worn or stained. You may have suffered from misalignments or gaps throughout your life. Regardless of your reasons, you are ready for a change, and a smile makeover can provide you with the smile you’ve been dreaming of. Dr. Ghasri, North Hollywood cosmetic dentist, can help you achieve significant improvement in the aesthetics, function and health of your smile using advanced techniques and treatments.
We work closely with our patients to determine which specific smile makeover treatments and techniques would create the best results, and we incorporate our artistic vision and unique skills into our work so that you can leave with the smile of your dreams. We will begin with a comprehensive smile analysis to determine your overall dental health and create a smile design based on your unique facial shape, features, skin tone and eye color.
The treatments used in a smile makeover depend on your personal preferences and smile goals. Bite correction, dental implants, dental veneers and teeth whitening may all be options. If your teeth are misaligned, gapped or maloccluded, orthodontics may be necessary. Our dentist, Dr. Ghasri, may recommend either Invisalign clear plastic aligners or traditional metal braces. For those who are missing teeth, dental implants with crowns or dental bridges may be used to restore the appearance and function of their smiles.
Teeth that have become stained or worn may be improved with Lumineers or dental veneers. These thin porcelain shells fit over the fronts of teeth to cover not just stains and enamel wear but also gaps, cracks, chips and minor misalignments. Traditional dental veneers require some preparation of the natural tooth and are considered irreversible. Lumineers generally require no preparation of the tooth and tend to be a more comfortable procedure.
Stained teeth that simply need brightening can benefit from in-office whitening procedures. Peroxide gel is painted directly onto the teeth before being activated with a special light. After just one series of treatments, which takes only an hour, teeth are often eight shades whiter.
