“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
― Abraham Lincoln
The point of that quote is that good preparation is an essential part of success. We know this because we see it in every smile makeover that we do at Atlanta West Dentistry.
What is a smile makeover? Is it something that could help you? That depends on whether you would like to improve your smile.
Every year millions of people turn to cosmetic dentistry to change the appearance of their teeth. We haven’t helped millions, but we have helped more people than we can count create the smiles of their dreams at our dentist office in Marietta, GA.
We would be happy to help you, too, but it all starts with developing the right plan.
Listening To You, Learning Your Goals
While many patients have similar goals for their smiles, every patient is different. Many times there are multiple ways we can help you achieve your goals regarding your smile.
The work starts with a conversation. We want to hear what you would like to change about your smile.
It can be helpful to write down what your ideal smile would look like. After you have done this, find a mirror and take a close look at your smile. What changes are needed to turn what you see into what you want?
After you write this down, bring it with you to your consultation at our Marietta, GA, dentist office. This will help you explain what you want, and it will help use as we evaluate your teeth and jaw.
Knowing what you want will help us determine what options are available for your smile makeover.
When you are ready to talk, we will be here to listen. Call 770-744-4619 for your appointment at Atlanta West Dentistry.
What We Could Do For You
When people think of cosmetic dentistry, many people think of specific services. A smile makeover is about finding a solution to the problems that you have with your smile.
In some cases, one service may be just what you need. In other cases, we may combine services to create your ideal smile. Here are some of your options:
▸ Cosmetic Bonding – This is sometimes called tooth bonding or dental bonding, too. It is the application of a tooth-colored resin to fix minor problems with your teeth. These can be chips or cracks. They can be signs of wear and tear.
Bonding also can be used to fill the space between small gaps or change the size of teeth that appear short or small compared to their neighbors.
▸ Gum Reshaping – If your smile were a television show, your teeth would be the stars. Your gums would be the supporting characters.
But if your gums are too prominent, they can overshadow your teeth when you smile. We can change your gummy smile with gum reshaping.
▸ Invisalign® – Sometimes changing your smile will involve moving your teeth. Invisalign can do many of the things that traditional orthodontic treatments can do. The difference is that Invisalign is less noticeable, and it often works in less time than traditional braces.
▸ Teeth Whitening – As long as you keep eating and drinking, you will develop stains on your teeth. Over-the-counter whitening products can help to a degree, but nothing like the professional teeth whitening we offer.
Whether you choose KöR or Opalescence professional teeth whitening, you can count on removing deeper stains from your smile. We offer both in-office or take-home whitening to fit your needs.
▸ Tooth Contouring – If you have large teeth or bite issues that are causing unnecessary wear and tear, tooth contouring is a way to change the shape of your teeth.
▸ Veneers – Dental veneers are a versatile cosmetic service. They can conceal problems so your smile looks as white, as straight, and as whole as you would like.
