If you have multiple things that you’d like to change about your smile, you’re not alone! Many patients come in to our Glendale dentist office looking to achieve a true smile transformation. Thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry, your dream smile is actually closer than you may think. As you approach cosmetic dental treatment, it’s best to start out by developing a long-range plan of how you’d like your treatment to progress. During your consultation, our dental team will work with you to devise a treatment strategy that works for you.

A total smile transformation generally involves both structural and surface changes to the teeth. But before we get started with any of those changes, we have to make sure that your smile is in tip-top shape health wise. You don’t want to use cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of teeth that are otherwise unhealthy or damaged.

Once you’re cavity-free, and you have a clean slate of dental health, we can begin cosmetic dental treatment…

  • If you’re missing teeth you may want pursue dentures, dental bridges, or dental implants.
  • To resurface the appearance of teeth you can use porcelain veneers for a seamless enamel appearance. Veneers are used to correct damaged teeth, discolored enamel, and spaces between teeth.
  • You can also brighten and straighten your natural teeth with dental whitening and orthodontic treatment, respectively.
  • It is generally best to have your teeth whitened before you have your dental implants or veneers placed. You can have your natural teeth whitened, and then shade your veneers and implants to match!

When you meet with out Glendale cosmetic dentists, we’ll help you devise a treatment plan that works for you and your timeline. To start getting the smile of your dream, feel free to give us a call or schedule your consultation online!
