Are You Ready for a Smile Update?

August 1, 2018

At Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry of Kansas City, MO, we pride ourselves in providing excellent, comfortable care to our patients. One of our patients, Natalie had a crown on a front tooth for about 20 years. She did not like the way the old crown looked anymore. Despite that, she was scared for anyone to even touch the tooth for fear that something could go wrong. However, she put her trust into Dr. Jackson to create a new crown to update the one that she had had for so long. Natalie was very happy with the results. As you can see from the before and after photos above, the smile update made quite a difference.

Before and after

Restoring Your Health

There are two important components involved with updating a smile: the health and the appearance. While restoring an old crown can make a big impact on the look of the smile, it can help improve the health and vitality, too. If you have health issues within your smile, those will be the top priority. Imagine updating your home and car – a paint job does no good if the foundation or engine doesn’t work, right? Your dentist will examine your smile’s needs and recommend treatments to help get your oral health in a strong condition. This could just involve a deep cleaning or it could involve endodontic treatment. In some cases, your smile can already be healthy and you are ready for some cosmetic dentistry.

Updating the Appearance

Once your smile is strong and healthy, there are options to update your smile’s appearance. These options can range from a simple teeth-whitening treatment to cosmetic bonding to porcelain veneers. Your dentist will guide you on the options best suited for your smile’s needs, your timeline, and your budget. If you have dreamed of updating your smile, be like Natalie. Trust your dentist and move forward with a smile that can make you feel confident and happy.
