A smile makeover is something to be proud of rather than ashamed of. If you’re looking for smile makeovers near you, we have plenty of experience with them here at All Care Dental by the Sea in Port Hueneme, CA. We want to make it clear that there’s no procedure known as a smile makeover.
Smile makeovers can consist of different things like veneers, crowns, bonding, whitening, and even teeth replacements. At All Care Dental by the Sea, our dentists have plenty of experience in all of these procedures. They also have the experience to know what to recommend for each patient based on their dental status.
Crowns and veneers are commonly performed dental procedures to strengthen teeth and improve their appearance. A crown is placed over the tooth and covers its entire biting surface. They can be done to protect cracked or weak teeth. They’re also great at covering up damaged or severely dark teeth.
Veneers aren’t as strong or durable as crowns. They’re thin shells that cover the front surfaces of teeth, but not the biting surface or anything else. Veneers are placed for cosmetic reasons. People with veneers need to take care not to bite on anything too hard, or the veneers might break.
Crowns and veneers are both permanent. The only way to remove them would be at the dentist’s office.
Teeth whitening is a common procedure that many of our patients at All Care Dental by the Sea ask for. We can whiten your teeth in a single visit, if you’re in a hurry, or over multiple sessions. Our recommendation is to take your time with whitening. We don’t advise whitening your teeth at home without supervision, either.
Dental bonding is the use of composite resin to repair teeth. This is a great way of fixing chipped or cracked teeth, so they look completely natural. Composite resin can be adjusted to match the color of the rest of your teeth, so it doesn’t stand out. It’s a simple procedure that’ll take less than an hour to complete.
If you have any questions, let us know, and we’ll be glad to help.
