Are You a Good Candidate For a Smile Makeover?

Are you happy with your smile?

It’s often the first thing people notice about you, but it’s high on the list of things people wish they could change about themselves.

The good news is you can indeed change your smile with a smile makeover! Dr. Therese Murphy and the expert team at Temecula Ridge Dentistry in Temecula, California, know just how much your smile can affect your self-confidence, so here’s some advice on what a smile makeover can change for you.

What a smile makeover includes

When you’re dissatisfied with your smile, a single procedure may not be the answer. We work closely with you to identify exactly what you want to change about your smile, and then we put together a customized plan to accomplish your goal that may involve any number of these common procedures:

Common issues a smile makeover can solve

To know if you’re a good candidate for a smile makeover, it helps to understand some of the most common problems we can fix. Here’s the rundown of what we can do for you with a smile makeover.

Say goodbye to tooth discoloration and stains

One of the easiest ways to improve your smile is with professional teeth whitening. These treatments use professional-grade bleaching agents to correct seriously stained or discolored teeth. This is not the teeth whitening kit you can find at the drugstore, and the results will speak for themselves. If you have discoloration on your teeth that doesn’t respond to whitening, we may recommend porcelain veneers or crowns to cover those areas.

Fix chips and cracks

A smile makeover not only helps conceal chipped or cracked teeth, but it can also protect them from additional issues in the future. To correct mild or moderate chips and cracks, Dr. Murphy might recommend dental bonding or porcelain veneers. If the damage to your tooth is more severe, she may decide dental crowns are the best option to completely cover and protect your tooth.

Eliminate gaps and straighten teeth

If you have crooked teeth or embarrassing gaps, you don’t have to suffer through the discomfort of traditional metal braces to correct them. We offer Invisalign as a convenient, discrete, and efficient solution that works up to 50% faster than other techniques. We can also use Invisalign to treat overcrowded, rotated, and misaligned teeth during your smile makeover. 

Replace missing teeth

If you lose a tooth because of disease, injury, or decay, fixing the problem is not just a matter of your smile — it’s necessary to save your oral health. Dental implants are the replacement solution that most closely resembles your natural tooth. This cosmetic dentistry technique involves implanting a metal post in your jawbone and attaching a custom-made crown on top. Dental implants stay firmly in place and help maintain the integrity of your jawbone and surrounding teeth.
