Wilmington, DE – Dr. Jeffrey Emmi and Dr. Laura Dougherty are pleased to announce that they are now welcoming patients who would like to improve the appearance of their smiles by the end of the summer. Though there are just a few weeks of summer left, there is still time for Dr. Emmi and Dr. Dougherty to makeover your smile before the fall season arrives.

To achieve a more beautiful smile by summer’s end, patients are urged to contact Smile Solutions by Emmi Dental Associates to set up a smile makeover consultation. Dr. Emmi or Dr. Dougherty will examine patients’ teeth and gums, and provide them with tips or recommendations to improve the appearance of the smile. One simple way to enhance the smile is to whiten the teeth with a professional at-home teeth whitening kit. Other patients may require more involved treatment such as the placement of porcelain veneers.

What Is a Smile Makeover and Why Is it Right for Me?

A smile makeover is a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures that are combined in order to enhance the overall beauty of the smile. Smile makeovers will typically target the teeth as well as the gums, addressing various aesthetic issues.

Patients who experience multiple flaws with the appearance of their smile are the best candidates for smile makeover treatment. Major issues with tooth loss and severe dental damage will require restorative care of some kind rather than a smile makeover, which is predominantly cosmetic in nature. A smile makeover consultation is crucial to determine eligibility and the proper course of action to take.

A Smile Makeover Lifts Stains and Whitens Teeth

Many patients who would benefit from smile makeovers have teeth that are stained or discolored in some fashion. An ideal smile makeover treatment for them is teeth whitening, which bleaches stains and brightens discolored tooth structure. In just one professional teeth whitening session, a smile can be lightened by seven shades or more. This is much faster and more effective than even the most sophisticated over-the-counter bleaching treatments.

A Smile Makeover Fixes Teeth That Are Chipped and Cracked

Noticeable chips or cracks on the teeth are another common reason that patients seek out smile makeovers. Dental bonding is a fine option to consider for very minor chips and cracks, with the composite resin painted directly onto the tooth structure to mask the damage.

Another option is the use of thin shells of dental ceramic known as porcelain veneers. These semi-translucent, custom-crafted shells are adhered directly onto the front of damaged teeth, concealing the chips and cracks and making the patient's smile look pristine.

A Smile Makeover Means No More Metal Restorations

Metal fillings and metal crowns are effective but unsightly. When a smile makeover addresses tooth decay or tooth damage, it's important to use tooth-colored dental restorations. These white fillings and porcelain dental crowns are carefully matched to the color of a patient's teeth, blending in seamlessly while also restoring overall dental health.

A Smile Makeover Targets Misalignment and Gaps

Tooth gaps, crowding, and other kinds of spacing issues can all affect the beauty of your smile. While orthodontic care can treat these issues and be incorporated into a smile makeover, there are less invasive cosmetic options out there as well. One great option is porcelain veneers, which can be used to correct aesthetic misalignment and spacing problems.

A Smile Makeover Enhances Your Periodontal Wellness

Patients can sometimes take the gums for granted, but healthy gums are crucial for a beautiful smile. A smile makeover can help rebuild gum tissue that has become recessed over time, and it can also involve reshaping the gum line when the gums are too prominent. By addressing issues that affect both the teeth and the gums, a total smile enhancement is possible.
