This dental specialty, which focuses on enhancing the smile’s appearance rather than restoring health to the teeth and gums, can draw on several interventions to fix defects that cause your smile to deviate from the characteristics that make a smile beautiful.
When seeking cosmetic dentistry services, it’s important to work with a provider who takes a holistic approach to improving your smile. At Kwon and Jabbour, we consider all of the elements that contribute to a beautiful smile when making treatment recommendations.
What makes a smile attractive anyway? It consists of teeth that are white and bright, in good condition and proportionate in size to each other. Furthermore, the gums and teeth are also in proper proportions (e.g. no excess of gum tissue, and adequate tooth material is visible).
The contour of an appealing smile is also pleasant and coherent, and it fits well within the surrounding facial structures.
If your smile falls short in any of these areas, cosmetic dentistry interventions can help you become more satisfied with your smile.
Your path to a more beautiful smile begins with our comprehensive evaluation that considers the role of your smile in the broader context of other facial structures. We may use photographs, intraoral scans, facial scans and other imaging tools to assess for imbalances in the smile.
In particular, we are evaluating the following factors to determine which interventions will help you to achieve your smile goals:
Based on this assessment, we can then recommend treatments that will help to address any aesthetic deficits identified. We will customize the intervention to blend in with your natural smile so that it’s impossible to detect which tooth has been treated and which one is natural.
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a number of treatments, and depending on your needs, any of the following may be recommended for you.
A small amount of tooth-colored composite material is applied to a tooth to hide minor defects, such as small areas of damage to a tooth.
This innovative approach to filling in a “black triangle” gap, typically between the two front teeth on the upper arch, offers an enduring solution.
Tooth-shaped shells bonded on top of your natural teeth are versatile enough to address varying situations such as chips, cracks, stains, minor alignment issues and undersized teeth.
We offer teeth whitening for every budget and lifestyle!
Our teeth can mean the difference between bubbling with self-confidence or feeling embarrassed and insecure. In the past, beautifully straight teeth could only be achieved through years of uncomfortable, unattractive metal braces. Fortunately, that is a thing of the past for many orthodontic candidates.
We offer patients the opportunity to have the stunningly perfect smile they deserve without the bulk and discomfort of traditional braces. To be a certified Invisalign provider a dentist must go through extensive training, which both Drs. Kwon and Jabbour have done.
Keep in mind that some patients can get the results they desire from a single treatment, while others may need multiple interventions to attain their treatment goals. Additionally, for certain conditions, we may need to collaborate with other specialists, such as oral surgeons, periodontists or orthodontists.
Our practice relies on the most advanced technology available to make your treatment process as effective and efficient as possible. We use both two-dimensional and three-dimensional smile design tools to predict the outcomes of our interventions and deliver those interventions.
The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to enhance and transform an ordinary smile into a beautiful one that you will be proud to show off. Every smile is different, and to determine what can be enhanced is the first step in Smile design. A Smile Design is the blueprint of your mouth.
Our Smile Design consultations include photographs, models, bite records and measurements. To achieve ideal facial harmony we take into account:
