A best smile restoration can run between subtle corrections of one or two teeth, to a full mouth reconstruction. At Summit Dental, cosmetic dentistry is the comprehensive approach to the best smile restoration process. As with any dental restoration treatment, your Boise dentist will utilize the following four-step approach with a special emphasis on diagnosis and planning.
The first step to a best smile restoration is a thorough physical examination of your mouth. During this process, your Boise dentist will examine your teeth, gums, jaw and muscles, looking for any indications of decay, stress, or trauma. Structural issues will need to be corrected before any restorative or cosmetic work is done to prevent the same problems from recurring with new Boise tooth implants, veneer, Boise crowns and bridges, etc. Your Boise dentist will also take into consideration your overall facial structure and features to insure that any potential cosmetic changes to your smile will look & feel as natural as possible.
Once the comprehensive Boise Dental Evaluation is complete, your Boise dentist will then start a treatment plan. He will take x-rays, and make any necessary molds or impressions of your teeth. This will provide him with an accurate starting point for the best smile restoration process. Your Boise dentist may also create a model of your mouth to demonstrate and test any proposed changes. This in turn will allow you to gain a better understanding of what your best smile restoration will “look” like.
Once your comprehensive Boise dental examination & treatment plans are complete, your Boise dentist with then begin to prepare your teeth and mouth for your best smile restoration. Molds will be taken, and your Boise dentist may also apply temporary restorations to specific teeth. The temporaries not only protect your teeth but will provide you with the chance to see how your best smile restoration will feel and function.
After the first three steps of the process are complete, the final step of implementing your best smile restoration will go smoothly, and you will have the great smile you were expecting! While there may be some final, or minor adjustments, these are usually easy, and can be taken care of quickly on the final visit.
