Our Wilmington dentist is dedicated to your optimal oral well-being, and that includes not only the maintenance and restoration of teeth, but their appearance as well. If you would like great-looking teeth, but you think that it’s too much trouble, let us tell you about our complete smile makeovers.
To start the process, our Wilmington dentist will take digital photos with the purpose of gauging where you war right now, so that the appreciate path can be laid out to get you to where you want to be. The focus of complete smile makeovers is on the teeth that show, which makes perfect sense. There is no need to cosmetically enhance your back teeth. No one is going to see them. An examination of your gums will also be important, since they will have to be strong and in good heath in order for the makeover to work properly. The next step is to take a diagnostic wax-up. These are impressions that will act as a guide moving forward. You’ll even be able to see an approximation of what your smile is going to look like when the work it totally completed.
A reshaped version of your teeth will then be made. A temporary enhanced smile will be bonded while your permanent one is being worked on. Our Wilmington dentist will then take the time to see if any adjustments need to be made. The goal is to give you an ideal new smile, after all. A few days may be required to ensure your satisfaction, but we believe that it is time well spent. Once you and Dr. Abrahamian are certain that your temporary smile looks the way you want it to, those results will be sent to the dental lab where your permanent one can be crafted to precision.
A final fitting will then be done before your new smile is bonded to your teeth. It’s important to remember that this process is not reversible. This is why we are careful to make sure that you will be happy with the outcome. In some cases, our Wilmington dentist may recommend a night guard to protect against chipping and wearing. But what is of greatest importance is that you will have a renewed sense of confidence when you smile, speak, or laugh.
