Do you have bad teeth? Many patients feel embarrassed about their bad teeth and afraid of judgement from dental professionals. They stay away from the dentist and ultimately, their problems just get worse. This self-consciousness as well as the health implications of bad teeth can hurt your quality of life over time.
Does this sound familiar? If so, you may be a candidate for a smile makeover. A smile makeover blends orthodontics with restorative and cosmetic dentistry to build a whole new smile. A strong, beautiful smile can boost your confidence, and healthy teeth help you live life as you want. Dr. Ami Barakat at Villanova Dental Studio combines his high level of training and years of experience with a natural aesthetic eye to help you get the cosmetic and functional results you want.
The first step of any smile makeover is to address the root causes of your oral health problems. We will perform a comprehensive checkup and evaluation of your smile then recommend a treatment plan.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Patients with tooth decay may need fillings to restore their teeth to full functionality. Some patients may have had effective restorative work in the past, but may have unsightly and outdated metal fillings. Villanova Dental Studio is a metal-free office; we only use tooth-colored feelings because they are a safer and more attractive option. Our fillings are made from a blue light-cured resin color matched to your teeth. They are durable and should be almost invisible when finished.
Many adult patients with orthodontic concerns are wary of braces because of how they look. For people with mild to moderate malocclusion, we may recommend Invisalign. This system uses a sequence of clear aligners to gradually straighten teeth. The aligners are far less obvious than traditional metal braces and can be a great choice for appearance-conscious adults.
For some patients with more complex orthodontic needs, Invisalign may not be enough. In these cases, we also offer full traditional braces services.
Cosmetic services can be the icing on the cake of your beautiful new smile. Depending on your particular needs, we may combine cosmetic options for the best results.
Whitening your teeth can take years off a well-used smile. Professional whitening is one of the quickest and most affordable cosmetic options available, and is much more effective than over-the-counter home whitening options. With peroxide whitening, you can see incredible results in just an hour.
Some patients may not feel ready to commit to veneers, but have tooth discoloration that isn’t responsive to peroxide whitening. The bonding material will be color-matched to your teeth then molded to reshape and fill damage on the teeth. Tooth bonding is less permanent than veneers but a more economical option. They can last up to ten years with proper care.
Veneers are a permanent cosmetic option than can address damaged teeth. The veneers are made from an ultra-durable thin porcelain designed to mimic tooth material. Each veneer is custom made and shaped to your teeth. Once the tooth has been prepared to fit the veneer, it is permanently adhered and should last for many years of natural functionality.
