A smile makeover uses dental restorations, cosmetic treatments, and orthodontic appliances to help you achieve a stunning smile. When developing a treatment plan, Dr. Wank takes several factors into account, including your skin tone, hair color, and facial appearance. He also assesses the size and shape of your teeth, as well as the appearance of your gums and lips.
During your initial consultation, it’s important to let Dr. Wank know what you like and wish to change about your smile. He takes these factors into account when developing your treatment plan.
Dr. Wank makes recommendations based on several factors, including your age, dental history, and personal goals. You may benefit from a variety of treatments, including:
If you have a cracked, chipped, or severely decaying tooth, Dr. Wank may recommend a crown. A crown is a synthetic cap bonded on top of your tooth. Once placed, it restores the tooth to its near-original shape and strength, allowing you to bite and chew confidently.
If you’re missing a single tooth due to extraction or trauma, Dr. Wank may recommend a bridge. By replacing a missing tooth with a bridge, you can reduce the risk of gum recession and bone loss.
Dental implants are metal posts that replace the roots of your teeth. After placement, they fuse with your natural jaw bone, providing a base for crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures. Dr. Wank offers traditional dental implants and All-On-4® dental implants.
If you have crowded teeth or a misaligned jaw, Dr. Wank may recommend orthodontic treatment with Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic mouthpieces to improve the alignment of your teeth and jaw.
If you have a gummy smile, you may benefit from cosmetic gum contouring. During this procedure, Dr. Wank uses special tools to carefully remove your excess gum tissue.
If you have teeth that are yellow or brown due to tobacco use, poor oral hygiene, or the natural aging process, Dr. Wank may recommend teeth whitening. Teeth whitening uses hydrogen peroxide gel to eliminate stains, making your smile appear brighter.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front of your teeth. They help cover up minor imperfections, like chips, cracks, or unusually shaped teeth.
Only an experienced dentist, like Dr. Wank, can determine if you’re a candidate for a smile makeover. If you wish to improve the appearance of your smile and oral health, he can work with you to customize a treatment plan that transforms your smile.
