Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What is a cosmetic dentistry smile makeover?

A smile makeover is any cosmetic dentistry procedure that enhances your smile. Depending on your needs, the team at Popper Dental can do anything from whitening your teeth to performing a full mouth reconstruction.

Smile makeovers help you feel confident and ready to take on the world. To create a smile that looks great and works great for you, the cosmetic dentistry team starts by scheduling you a full cosmetic consultation. During the consultation, they consider a variety of factors, including:

  • Teeth length
  • Teeth discoloration and staining
  • Teeth misalignment
  • Teeth wearing
  • Teeth shape
  • Teeth cracking and fracturing
  • Gaps and spaces between teeth
  • Gum tissue size, shape, and health

After evaluating these factors, they discuss your smile makeover options with you.

What is a full mouth reconstruction?

A full mouth reconstruction is a procedure during which your Popper Dental team rebuilds or replaces all the teeth in your mouth. A full mouth reconstruction focuses on a combination of function, health, and aesthetics.

What are the available cosmetic dentistry treatments?

Available cosmetic dentistry options for smile makeovers and full mouth reconstruction include:

Crowns

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped prosthetic caps that cover misshapen, weak, or damaged teeth, or dental implants. Sculpted to look like your natural teeth, they protect teeth from further damage and restore beautiful smiles.

Bridges 

Bridges are removable or permanent false teeth that “bridge” the gap between missing teeth and existing teeth. Bridges improve the look of your smile, make it easier to eat, prevent a bad bite, and stop your teeth from shifting and rotating.

Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that improve the shape, and color of your teeth. Veneers work well with teeth that are intact but have cosmetic issues like chipping, discoloration, or misshapenness. 

Your Popper Dental team provider secures them to your teeth by internally etching them and then bonding them to the enamel of your teeth.

Dental implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that work like artificial tooth roots. Your provider fuses them to your natural bone, where they serve as bases for artificial teeth like crowns, bridges, or dentures. 

Dentures

Dentures are removable prosthetics that replace missing teeth. You can get full sets of dentures, which replace all your teeth, or partial sets, which replace some of your teeth. To secure dentures, your provider either attaches the artificial teeth to a metal framework or acrylic base.

The metal framework anchors onto your existing teeth or crowns, while the acrylic base fits over your gums.

Invisalign®

Invisalign is custom-made clear aligners. They gradually shift your teeth into alignment without anyone knowing they’re there. Unlike traditional braces, you can take them out at night to brush your teeth. 

Bonding

Teeth colored bonding is an efficient and inexpensive alternative procedure to veneers. During bonding, your practitioner applies a tooth-colored composite resin to your teeth that repairs and covers fractures, chips, decay, or discoloration. It can also correct misshapen teeth.
