With a wealth of experience, Dr. Joseph Morris can design a smile makeover to dramatically enhance your appearance. When we combine two or more treatments, we call the plan a smile makeover. Modern cosmetic dentistry allows us to change the shape, size, alignment, and color of teeth, through minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Morris will be happy to evaluate your mouth, talk about your goals, and share a plan to create your smile makeover at his Islip, NY, office.
Common Smile Imperfections
Smile imperfections are quite common, since it is nearly impossible to have perfectly aligned, evenly spaced, bright white teeth. Time also takes a toll on our teeth, often leaving them worn, chipped, or stained. A smile makeover can help remedy the following dental issues:
- Chips, cracks, or breaks
- Discoloration or staining
- Overlapping or wide spacing
- Misalignment, such as crooked or protruding teeth
- Uneven gum tissue
- Gum recession or exposed tooth roots
- Inconsistent tooth length
- Missing teeth
- Dark metal fillings
Your Personal Consultation
During your personal consultation, Dr. Morris will perform a comprehensive oral examination. He may order digital x-rays and photographs of your mouth. Your oral health, personal goals, preferences, and expectations for your new smile will be discussed.
His many years of experience with smile makeovers means that you will receive expert advice on what will look best with your facial features, skin coloring, and lips. Dr. Morris will explain in detail the treatments he recommends, and answer all of your questions.
Your Treatment Options
While smile makeovers are typically cosmetic in nature, they can also include restorative dentistry services. Today, dentists have access to materials that mimic natural tooth enamel. Tooth-colored fillings and crowns can be used to repair decayed and cracked teeth, resulting in a natural-looking restoration. In addition, crowns and bridges, partial and full dentures, and dental implants can restore missing teeth.
With proper dental care at home, coupled with six-month checkups and cleanings, your smile makeover will last for years to come.
Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells that Dr. Morris permanently attaches to the front surface of teeth. Veneers correct many cosmetic imperfections, including color, spacing, shape, and size. Other cosmetic procedures that could be included in your smile makeover are teeth whitening, gum contouring, dental bonding, and Invisalign®.
Our team will provide you with an estimate of costs and a suggested schedule for completing your smile makeover. The length of your treatment will depend on the procedures you will undergo and your availability. With proper dental care at home, coupled with six-month checkups and cleanings, your smile makeover will last for years to come.
