A Customized Experience
When you come in for your initial consultation with Dr. Patel, he will perform an evaluation and develop a treatment plan that will achieve your cosmetic goals, meet your budgetary needs, and fit into your schedule. Depending on your smile makeover goals, we can perform any number of cosmetic procedures to customize your treatment:
- Porcelain Veneers - To conceal broken, chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic option. They are thin, custom-made shells that are bonded over the front surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can also cover up inconsistent shaping, minor misalignment, and spacing issues like gaps or minor overcrowding.
- Gum Reshaping - For patients that have uneven gum lines or gummy smiles, gum contouring can reshape the gum line to complement the rest of the smile. Gum reshaping procedures can smooth out and sculpt the soft tissues of the mouth to create an even, symmetrical gum line.
- Teeth Whitening - Stained or discolored teeth can detract from an otherwise healthy smile. Professional teeth whitening treatments are more effective than the at-home kits that are available in stores. We can tailor the treatment to suit your needs by adjusting the level of the bleaching agent to your specifications. When combining teeth whitening with other procedures, it is important to match the shade of your teeth to any restorations in your mouth.
- Invisalign® - Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment used to correct teeth alignment issues in the most discreet way possible. The Invisalign® system involves the use of a series of clear, removable, custom-fitted alignment trays that gradually straighten your teeth. The clear aligners are far less noticeable than traditional metal braces, and can be removed for easy cleaning. Invisalign® can be used to treat minor crowding and gaps between the teeth.
Patients who have dental problems that require restorative care are not good candidates for a smile makeover. Any oral health conditions that affect the teeth and gums must be treated before patients can proceed with cosmetic treatment. For patients with severe dental health and cosmetic problems, a full mouth reconstruction treatment plan may be recommended.
