Cosmetic Reconstructions

Smiling couple on benchYour smile says a lot about you. If you are embarrassed by imperfections in your smile, you may do everything that you can to hide it. An imperfect smile can affect how others see you. Even though hiding your mouth behind your hands or tight lips might not seem like such a big deal, doing so can also leave the wrong impression. At Bellevue's Best Smiles, we can help to improve the quality of your smile and boost your confidence, with cosmetic reconstructions.

What are Cosmetic Reconstructions?

A cosmetic reconstruction is a procedure that involves the use of several cosmetic treatments with the goal of improving the overall quality of your smile. In the process, many of the treatments can also help to improve your oral health and the overall functioning of your mouth as well.

There are many different issues that can impact the quality of your smile, including:
•  Stains and discoloration.
•  Chips and cracks.
•  Tooth decay and cavities.
•  Alignment issues such as spacing and overcrowding.
•  Teeth that are small or misshapen.
•  Issues with your gums, including recession and too much tissue.

Am I a Candidate for Cosmetic Reconstructions?

If your smile is affected by one or more cosmetic issues, you may be a good candidate for a cosmetic reconstruction. We will perform a thorough oral exam to determine the exact issues affecting your smile. This will help us to determine the right treatments to provide you with the best results. We will look over your teeth and gums, noting any issues we find. We will also discuss your concerns and goals, which will allow us to consider them when planning your personalized treatment.

Cosmetic Reconstruction Procedures

There are many different procedures that will help to improve the quality of your smile. Many of these procedures can also help to improve your oral health and functioning of your mouth as well. Common procedures used during a cosmetic reconstruction include:
•  Teeth whitening. This procedure eliminates stains and discoloration from your teeth, restoring their bright white brilliance.
•  Tooth contouring. This is a procedure that involves the use of a special tool that polishes away small amounts of tooth enamel to eliminate minor flaws such as chips.
•  Dental bonding. Bonding uses composite resin to treat minor dental imperfections. This tooth colored material bonds to the surfaces of your teeth, providing a natural appearance. Composite resin can also be used to treat cavities.
•  Porcelain veneers. Veneers are an alternative to bonding. They are small, very thin shells that are made to be bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, effectively covering the flaws.
•  Ceramic crowns. Crowns treat larger damage, providing strength and protection for cracked, chipped, or decayed teeth. Ceramic also helps to provide a natural restoration to the affected teeth.
•  Dental implants. Implants are a treatment for tooth loss. Your replacement teeth are supported by small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone.
•  Aesthetic gum lift. An aesthetic gum lift is a procedure performed to remove excess gum tissue, helping to improve the overall quality of your smile. This procedure can also help to reduce your risk of gum disease.
•  Invisalign®. Invisalign is a discreet orthodontic treatment. In addition to improving the quality of your smile, straightening your teeth also helps to improve your overall health and alleviate issues like bruxism and TMJ disorder.

If your smile is less than perfect, a cosmetic reconstruction can help to improve its quality and boost your confidence. For more information, and to find out if a cosmetic reconstruction is right for you, contact Bellevue's Best Smiles today at (425) 688-1345.
