How Dr. Tyler Can Help You Get the Smile Makeover of Your Dreams
Everyone deserves to have a smile they feel proud to share with those around them. Most of us don’t have an Instagram-perfect smile. In fact, a naturally perfect smile is extremely rare. Between normal wear and tear from chewing, accidental chips, and discoloration from coffee, our smiles go through a lot.
Over the last decade or so, smile makeovers have really grown in demand, especially among adults who may have missed out on braces or other forms of dental care as a child. Through cosmetic dentistry, everyone is capable of attaining their own uniquely perfect smile.
What exactly is a smile design?
A smile design is a popular term used to describe aesthetic dental treatment that transforms most or all of a person’s visible smile. Smile makeovers are unique to every patient, including which dentistry procedures make up that person’s specific treatment plan.
The two most common cosmetic dentistry services used in a smile design are porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns.
When you think of a total smile makeover, you probably envision the results of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers have been the quintessential smile makeover solution for quite a long time. Many actors, actresses, and influencers who have stunningly perfect smiles likely have porcelain veneers in place.
Porcelain veneers are thin, shell-like pieces of porcelain that cover the visible surfaces of your teeth. They are a permanent solution and can last 15 to 20 years or more before needing to be replaced with a new set.
Porcelain veneers are completely customized to achieve your smile goals, including their shape, size, and color.
Porcelain crowns are both a restorative and cosmetic dentistry service. They change the appearance of a tooth in a very similar manner to porcelain veneers. However, they also add strength to the tooth, making them a great option for helping decayed or damaged teeth that may not be strong enough for veneers alone.
What’s the main differences between porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns? Porcelain crowns are generally used to treat individual teeth, while porcelain veneers are usually used to revamp the entire visible arch.
Dr. Tyler offers the best of both worlds! Porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns can be used in combination to achieve a healthy, strong, and beautiful smile.
Professional teeth whitening is another popular noninvasive treatment you might want included in your smile makeover.
Some smile makeovers only transform a portion of the person’s smile, leaving some of their natural teeth visible. Porcelain dental materials can’t be whitened, so it’s imperative to brighten your natural teeth to your desired shade first so that Dr. Tyler is able to get an accurate color match.
What can I expect during my smile makeover with Dr. Tyler?
Dr. Tyler and his team at Duvall Dental Center take a one-of-a-kind approach to smile makeovers. You’ll receive expert dental care with a compassionate, gentle touch and a truly artistic approach to your smile design.
Start your smile design journey with a virtual consultation.
You can take the first step toward a smile makeover without even leaving your house. Dr. Tyler offers virtual consultations for patients who are interested in smile makeovers.
All you need to do is take some close-up pictures of your smile, including the areas that you’re most interested in fixing. Send in these pictures along with your answers to our easy questionnaire. Dr. Tyler then reviews the pictures and sends back a custom video answering your questions and discussing potential treatment options.
From there you can book your first in-person appointment!
Try out your new smile with our Smile Test Drive.
A very exciting option we offer our patients is the Smile Test Drive.
Dr. Tyler understands how important it is for patients to have a visual idea of what their new smile will look like before treatment starts. After all, a smile makeover is a very personal service. By offering Smile Test Drives, Dr. Tyler is able to give patients a sneak peek at what their new smile will look like.
During your Smile Test Drive appointment, Dr. Tyler will form and place a temporary composite resin material on your teeth and sculpt a replica of your future smile. This way you can see what your future smile will look like in person versus just a digital replica on a computer screen.
Best of all, your Smile Test Drive lasts for the day. You can show it off to friends or family members to get their opinions, take selfies, and “live” with your future smile before peeling off the resin.
