Smile design is a comprehensive approach to enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. It involves assessing various factors such as tooth shape, size, color, tooth alignment, and facial proportions to create a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals.

Whether you have chipped, stained, misaligned, or missing teeth, our smile design services can help you achieve the smile you desire. During your consultation, we will assess your oral health and discuss your treatment options. Common smile issues addressed with Smile Design include:

  • STAINED OR DISCOLORED TEETH: Smile design offers solutions to address tooth discoloration caused by factors such as aging, diet, medication, or lifestyle habits. Teeth whitening treatments, porcelain veneers, or dental bonding can effectively restore a bright, white smile.
  • CHIPPED OR CRACKED TEETH: Whether due to trauma or wear and tear, chipped or cracked teeth can detract from the overall appearance of your smile. Smile design techniques such as dental bonding or porcelain veneers can repair these imperfections, restoring a uniform and attractive smile.
  • GAPS AND SPACES: Gaps between teeth, also known as diastemas, can be a source of self-consciousness for many individuals. Smile design treatments like porcelain veneers or orthodontics can close these spaces, creating a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing smile.
  • MISALIGNED OR CROOKED TEETH: Crooked or misaligned teeth can affect the symmetry and balance of your smile. Orthodontic treatments, such as braces or clear aligners, can gradually shift teeth into proper alignment, improving both the appearance and function of your smile.
  • UNEVEN OR GUMMY SMILE: An uneven gum line or excessive gum tissue can create an unbalanced appearance and make teeth appear shorter than they actually are. Gum contouring or crown lengthening procedures can reshape the gum line, revealing more of the tooth structure and creating a more proportionate smile.

Smile design offers customized treatments for achieving a straighter, whiter, and natural-looking smile, with results that last. Your personalized plan may involve a combination of the following procedures, tailored to meet your specific needs and desires.

  • PORCELAIN VENEERS: Custom-made ceramic shells bonded to the front surface of teeth, addressing imperfections like stains, chips, gaps, and misalignments, for a flawless smile.
  • TEETH WHITENING: Professional whitening treatments to brighten teeth and remove stains, rejuvenating your smile's appearance.
  • DENTAL BONDING: Composite resin applied to teeth to repair chips, reshape uneven teeth, and close small gaps, enhancing overall smile symmetry.
  • ORTHODONTIC TREATMENTS: Straighten misaligned teeth and correct bite issues using traditional braces, clear aligners, or other orthodontic solutions for a straighter, more harmonious smile.
  • GUM CONTOURING: Reshape and sculpt gum tissue to improve the appearance of a "gummy" smile or uneven gum line, creating a balanced and proportionate smile.
  • DENTAL CROWNS: Restore damaged or weakened teeth with custom-made dental crowns, enhancing both the function and appearance of your smile.
  • DENTAL IMPLANTS: Replace missing teeth with durable and natural-looking dental implants, restoring your smile's aesthetics and function.
  • COMPOSITE VENEERS: Similar to porcelain veneers but made from composite resin material, offering a more affordable option for smile enhancement with comparable results.
