Are you looking for a smile makeover?

A bright, dazzling smile is associated with confidence, success, happiness, and good health. If you often feel embarrassed about your smile whenever you’re in the company of other people, and have even considered brightening your smile or fixing your discolored (chipped, crooked, or misshapen) teeth, then you may be a good candidate for a smile makeover.

Even a subtle change to your smile can make a huge difference in the way you look, the way you feel about yourself, and the way others perceive you. With most cosmetic dental procedures, you can see and enjoy the results immediately after treatment, which provides a high degree of joy and satisfaction.

Depending on your case, Dr. Andrew Mutch may recommend several treatments, including:

Teeth Whitening

To lighten teeth that have been discolored or stained by age, food, medications, smoking, and other factors. In-office professional teeth whitening offers immediate results, while at-home techniques take several weeks.

Bonding

The application of tooth-colored plastic putty, known as composite resin, to the surface of broken, chipped, or discolored teeth, or to fill in gaps between teeth that affect your smile.

Cosmetic recontouring

Also referred to as enamel shaping, this procedure involves controlled enamel removal to repair overcrowded or uneven teeth. For example, a tooth that appears to be longer than the others can be corrected by removing some of the enamel until the desired size and shape is achieved. Only a small amount of enamel is removed to avoid sensitivity and pain.

Orthodontic Treatments

Dr. Lynn offers several modern treatments for straightening crooked, overcrowded, or misaligned teeth to improve your smile. Clear braces and aligners are less visible and more comfortable than metal brackets and wires for treating most kinds of orthodontic problems.

Veneers

Dental veneers refer to ultra-thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain material that are cemented to the front surface of your teeth in order to conceal or camouflage discolored, poorly shaped, misaligned, or damaged teeth, and improve your smile.

If you’re self-conscious about your teeth, or want to improve your smile, please schedule your visit with Dr. Mutch to discuss your case. Call us today.
