4 Treatments to Consider for a Complete Smile Makeover

4 Treatments to Consider for a Complete Smile Makeover

If you’re thinking about improving your smile with a makeover, now is the time. The holidays are here, and that means holiday pictures — why not make your smile look as good as possible?

Here at Silicon Valley Dental Associates in Sunnyvale, California, we offer complete smile makeovers for our patients. While no two makeovers are the same, there are a few elements we commonly consider.

Here are four treatments to consider for a complete smile makeover.

Teeth whitening

If your teeth are discolored from years of eating dark foods, smoking tobacco, or just getting older, teeth whitening can be a vital component of your smile makeover. We offer a take-home treatment that uses whitening trays in four concentrations and three flavors.

We give you customized bleaching trays to fit your mouth and ensure effective treatment. If you use our 35% concentration solution, you only have to wear them for about 30 minutes a day. 

Treatment results last about 4-6 months, possibly longer if you use whitening toothpaste.

Veneers

For a more permanent solution, consider veneers, custom-made porcelain shells that cover your teeth. Porcelain veneers can cover a variety of dental issues, including teeth that are discolored, crooked, gapped, irregularly shaped, chipped, or cracked.

You can get a single veneer to fix one tooth or several to address a row of teeth. The porcelain is custom-shaded to match your natural teeth; no one can tell you’re wearing veneers.

Crowns

Crowns are custom-made oral prosthetics that fit over chipped, cracked, decaying, or otherwise damaged teeth. Crowns improve your smile by covering up teeth that don’t look good anymore because they’re damaged.

Crowns can be customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth so your smile looks natural and normal. With the option of same-day crowns, the process is efficient.

Dental implants

If you need to replace a tooth to complete your smile makeover, dental implants are the way to go. An implant is a small titanium post surgically implanted into your jawbone to support a crown. After your jawbone grows around the implant, holding it in place, we add the crown.

Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing teeth. 


When you’re ready to pursue your smile makeover, our team at Silicon Valley Dental Associates is ready to give you the smile of your dreams. To schedule an appointment, call our office at 408-659-3661 or book your visit online today.
