A smile makeover is a comprehensive dental treatment during which several general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services can be combined to address all of the functional and aesthetic issues impacting your teeth and gums.

When to Floss Your Teeth

As strange as it may sound, it makes a difference at which point, during the course of your daily oral hygiene routine, you floss. And, while the difference is not significant, flossing your teeth before you brush is a more effective way to avoid oral health problems.

Hiding Your Smile Due to Deep Stains

Deep stains, also known as intrinsic stains, lie underneath the enamel of the teeth. Often caused by fluorosis, medication, or inadequate tooth care, these stains are not responsive to topical teeth whiteners. In fact, many topical whiteners will enhance the appearance of intrinsic stains by lightening surrounding enamel, serving to highlight deeper discoloration.

"I have a missing tooth. Should I replace it?"

Yes. You should absolutely replace a missing tooth.

Why Replace a Missing Tooth?

Depending on its location, a missing tooth can have a profound impact on the appearance of your smile. This is, however, far from the largest concern. When one or more teeth is missing, a whole host of oral health issues can follow.

Full face orthodontics, also known as functional orthopedic orthodontics or epigenetic orthodontics, is a holistic approach to straightening teeth. With full face orthodontics, jaw growth is guided along with the straightening of the teeth, helping to ensure ideal alignment while improving the appearance and function of the jaw.

Orthodontics address bite issues including:

  • Crooked and crowded teeth
  • Gaps and spacing issues
  • Underbite and overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Overjet

If you struggle with malocclusion, you may be a good candidate for orthodontics.

A new and improved smile is within reach in 2020 with a smile makeover. Smiling can have many positive effects on mood, social interactions, and even career success. When you censor your smile because you are self-conscious of discoloration, misalignment, or damaged teeth, you may not be living your most vibrant life.
