During your lifetime, you might have had injuries, dental issues, and more that may have made the appearance of your teeth less than ideal. A smile makeover at Market Common Dentistry is a custom treatment plan of restorative and cosmetic procedures that can aid in improving the look of your teeth — and your general oral health. The procedures included in a smile makeover may consist of tooth whitening (in-office or at-home treatments), porcelain veneers, realignment of your teeth, cosmetic bonding, and replacing metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings. It may also include restorative procedures, such as bridges or crowns, to correct missing teeth. If you want to know more about refreshing your smile so that it is healthy and beautiful, schedule an appointment with Dr. James Mills at our office in Myrtle Beach, SC to receive your customized smile makeover plan.
A smile makeover may be helpful if you would like to enhance the look of your teeth, or if you want multiple cosmetic procedures. Dr. Mills will personalize your smile makeover program to meet your goals and concerns, but it might contain teeth bleaching to fix discoloration and stains on your enamel. Other cosmetic procedures that could be in your plan are bonding and contouring or veneers to correct the length and shape of your teeth, and to mask minor openings between teeth. Restorations (bridges and crowns) may be suggested to replace a lost tooth or teeth. At Market Common Dentistry, we offer custom restorations to ensure they match your other teeth for a seamless look.
Prior to performing cosmetic treatments, Dr. Mills will have to make certain your gums and teeth are healthy. If you have any restrictive oral health issues, such as a dental malocclusion or periodontal disease, then this will have to be treated first.
What To Expect
Each smile makeover is personalized so Dr. Mills will discuss exactly what to expect throughout your treatment, such as the number of visits you might require. He can work with you to plan your appointment(s) to complete each of the treatments in your makeover. Local anesthesia will be needed before a few of your treatments, although other sedation methods may be suggested if you will need help relaxing due to dental worries or anxieties. During your smile makeover, Dr. Mills along with our skilled dental team will be happy to help you feel more comfortable or answer your questions.
As soon as your smile makeover is complete, you should keep up the health and look of your teeth using a regular home oral care regimen (both flossing and brushing daily). Along with home maintenance, you need to attend dental examinations and cleanings at Market Common Dentistry so Dr. Mills can check your progress. With good attention, the outcomes of your smile makeover should last for several years. Touch-up procedures every couple of years, such as teeth whitening, might help to refresh your appearance. Restorations and veneers might also have to be replaced or repaired, which will all be discussed with Dr. Mills at your visits.
