What is a smile makeover?
Your smile is your first introduction to everyone you meet! A healthy smile and gums not only says a lot about you but it displays your confidence, poise and personality! What if your smile doesn’t look the way you want it to or wish it should? Maybe your parents couldn’t afford braces to straighten your teeth. Perhaps you had crowns done and the dentist used a standard lab so that those crowns are a bit embarrassing to you. What if you just lost a tooth? These are all reasons to discuss options with your dentist. At Hampton Dental Associates we won’t just look at a single problem but we will examine your entire mouth so that any and all improvements can be identified so that you are empowered to make changes according to your desires and budget. A Smile Makeover can be as easy as cosmetic reshaping, adding some composite (white fillings) or simple tooth re-alignment. Not everyone needs full mouth veneers or crowns! However, whatever your needs and desires we are here to help! We have the latest state-of-the-art instruments to help us achieve the make-over you desire. We have LightScalpel CO2 lasers for ideal tissue shaping and removal of tissue. We use Piezo electric devices for some surgeries which are very gentle and we have the latest digital x-rays to help with proper diagnosis of any dental problems!
What can you expect from a smile makeover?
When you are considering a smile makeover, your dentist will go over the details of what you can expect. You will address the areas you want to improve or change in the appearance of your smile and he will then suggest procedures that will achieve the results that you want. Each potential procedure will be discussed in detail. Then a treatment plan outlining the different procedures that will be performed, as well as a timeline, will be mapped out.
Beyond the technical knowledge of dentistry, a smile makeover requires artistic skills to ensure the end result is a natural-looking smile that complements the facial features. Our team at Hampton Dental excels in both facets of the smile makeover.
What are the different smile makeover options for patients in Milwaukee?
All smile makeovers at Hampton Dental Associates are personalized — no two smile makeovers in our clinic are the same. Each patient has unique needs and we personalize a plan of action just for you. You can choose from a wide array of dental services for your smile makeover.
Bright white teeth instantly give the impression of youth and health. Our teeth whitening procedures are guaranteed to whiten your teeth up to 8-10 shades in just one visit. And to ensure that you maintain the brightness of your smile, we have whitening kits that you can use at home.
Veneers can repair minor dental flaws like cracks, chips, and minor gaps in between the teeth. Veneers are very thin shells placed on the surface of the teeth that instantly improve the appearance of the damaged areas. This is one of our most popular treatments at Hampton Dental Associates because veneers produce a very natural-looking result.
Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns are a great solution for severely damaged teeth, as they can restore both the function and appearance of a damaged tooth. A dental crown serves like a tooth cap that is placed over a worn-down or fractured tooth to restore and reinforce the tooth structure. Crowns maintain the functionality of a tooth, eliminating the need for extraction.
For missing teeth, we utilize dental bridges in our smile makeovers. Bridges are anchored to adjacent healthy teeth (or implants) with dental crowns to provide a “fixed” long-term solution.
Gum Lifting and Gum Reshaping
If your gumline is overly low, you may need a gum lifting and reshaping procedure. People with excessive gum tissue often feel insecure even if they have otherwise good dental health. Our state-of-the-art laser technology utilized for gum lifting and reshaping reduces the amount of gum tissue that appears when you smile.
Our State-of-the-art LightScalpel laser is the most studied 10,600nm CO2 Laser on the market today! Not only does this laser seal blood vessels and lymphatics allowing for less discomfort and better healing, it is much quicker then using an electrosurgery or blade to accomplish tissue sculpting. Also as this Laser is capable of “Super Pulse technology” it can remove tissue, coagulate or ablate tissues with minimal bleeding and allow the tissues to not heat up and “char” like dentists that use diode lasers which can heat up a glass rod to between 500 and 900 degrees when removing tissue.
Your perfect smile does not end when your smile makeover is complete. We provide all of our smile makeover patients in Milwaukee the proper dental education to make sure that they maintain their beautiful smiles and the best dental health. We will also schedule you for continuing cleanings and whitenings to ensure that your teeth are indeed something to smile about.
