Des Moines Cosmetic Dentist
A smile makeover is for anyone who is tired of looking at chipped, stained, broken, or crooked teeth. If you don’t like your smile, you won’t use it! Your self-confidence suffers; you cover your mouth; a man may even grow a mustache to hide it. We find that people are transformed when their smiles are transformed. Those who wouldn’t smile before now can’t stop smiling. The impact on their personal and business lives is dramatic.
Cosmetic dentistry is any procedure to restore existing teeth or replace missing ones. A qualified Des Moines cosmetic dentist will listen to your smile makeover goals and customize a plan to get there. With extensive continuing education on up-to-date techniques and materials, the professionals at Plaza Dental will suggest one or more of the following:
- Teeth whitening – in-office or take-home trays may be just what you need to kick-start that smile. We also use teeth whitening with most other cosmetic dentistry procedures.
- Crowns – strong porcelain coverings to protect damaged teeth and beautify shape and color.
- Veneers – thin layers of porcelain applied to the front surfaces of teeth to improve color, shape, size, and spacing.
- Dental implants – the strongest, most natural-looking replacement for a missing tooth. Implants are also used to hold dentures securely.
- Bridges – to hold a replacement tooth. A dental bridge is a good option if you are not a suitable candidate for an implant.
- Invisalign – today’s alternative to a mouthful of metal. These “invisible” braces align teeth quickly, and allow you to look great while you straighten.
- Snap-on Smiles – a customized instant temporary smile makeover, perfect for a preview of how your permanent one will look. Snap-on Smiles is made in a lab from impressions of your mouth. It is a full arch set of teeth; like temporary crowns but all one unit. It fits comfortably; you adapt easily with no lisp. Patients love these “party teeth” for special occasions.
At Plaza Dental, every smile makeover in Des Moines is customized because every mouth is different.
That’s what makes smile makeovers fun, interesting and rewarding!
