Cosmetic and Restorative Dental Treatments
Your Northborough, MA, cosmetic dentist offers a full range of treatment options to meet your needs, goals, and budget. Treatments that are part of a smile makeover can include:
Porcelain veneers are made from high-quality, ultra-thin ceramic or porcelain. They are durable, stain-resistant, and custom-matched to your existing teeth. They are permanent dental restorations that correct discolored, crooked, damaged, or misshapen teeth.
The dental crown can be used to address a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental concerns. We custom-make them to match your smile, and they restore beauty, function, and strength to a tooth. With the use of CEREC technology, Dr. Gauthier can complete the crown in a single visit.
Teeth whitening is a safe, quick, and efficient cosmetic treatment that can improve the aesthetics of your smile. It’s comfortable, effective, and can whiten teeth up to 8 shades in just one hour. Many patients prefer take-home whitening kits for a more subtle and gradual result.
Even a single missing tooth has a big impact on the look and feel of your smile. Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement. We recommend dental implants to replace the gaps in your smile whenever possible.
They look and feel the most like natural teeth. You’ll be ready to show off your smile, and you can also confidently bite and chew any food you need. People won’t even be able to tell it isn’t your natural teeth.
Crooked teeth are one of the most common issues that people complain about. Invisible braces are a subtle way to get a straighter smile. Clear plastic aligners slowly move your teeth into place instead of metal wires and brackets. You can take them out to eat and perform your oral healthcare routine so that your teeth are cleaned properly, too.
Smile Makeover FAQs
A smile makeover completely overhauls your smile to give you the one of your dreams. Learn more by reading the answers to these frequently asked questions.
What can a smile makeover correct?
It corrects many aesthetic problems, including crooked teeth, broken or chipped teeth, discolored teeth, gaps between teeth, and missing teeth. Though it’s considered a cosmetic procedure, it can also positively affect your oral health. We want to ensure that we correct every problem with your smile that you’re unhappy about.
What treatments are included in a smile makeover?
Every smile is different, and it’s important that we tailor each smile makeover to the specific patient. We thoroughly evaluate your smile and discuss your budget and cosmetic goals to create a customized treatment plan. You may have as few as a single dental procedure we’ll perform, or you may have multiple different ones. It all depends on your unique needs.
Is a smile makeover permanent?
A smile makeover isn’t completely permanent, but many treatments last multiple years. It all depends on the services you receive. For example, a dental implant is as close to permanent as possible. You just may need to replace the dental crown or other restoration that completes it. Something like teeth whitening is the shortest-lasting service, lasting anywhere from six months to three years.
What’s the difference between a smile makeover and a full-mouth reconstruction?
While the services of each can overlap, a smile makeover usually focuses on cosmetic dental needs, while a full-mouth reconstruction focuses on restorative and functional needs. Many cosmetic treatments have oral health benefits, and restorative solutions improve your smile’s looks — particularly if they’re fixing missing teeth.
How long does the smile makeover process take?
This all depends on the treatments you need. Correcting minor issues like chipped or discolored teeth may only take a few hours while straightening crooked teeth can take months or years. It depends on the severity of your problems as well. Extensive cosmetic problems will take longer to fix than minor ones.
Am I a good candidate for a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is the best solution if you have multiple cosmetic problems with your smile. We schedule a consultation with an interview and exam to ensure that a smile makeover is right for you. If you have oral health issues like cavities or gum disease, we need to treat these before we can move forward with the smile makeover. We need a good, healthy foundation to work with.
