Cosmetic Smile Makeovers in Fayetteville

No one can put a price on the value of an attractive smile. Teeth that are healthy, white, well aligned and correctly proportioned are essential components of a smile that gives you confidence. There have even been studies done to support the importance of having a good-looking smile. The research proves that a beautiful smile can lead to a life that is happier and more accomplished. For this reason, a cosmetic smile makeover can be a very wise investment in yourself. At Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry, Dr. Ruff offers a number of cosmetic dental services to help you have the smile you deserve.

New Smile, New You

The terms smile makeover and full-mouth reconstruction are often used interchangeably. However, there are two different procedures. A smile makeover is elective and is performed strictly to improve the appearance of your smile. Full-mouth reconstruction, on the other hand, is a required set of procedures designed to restore oral function. Nevertheless, a smile makeover can be equally important in terms of self-confidence and self-esteem.

What to Consider When Planning a Smile Makeover

You and Dr. Ruff will need to consider a number of factors when planning your smile makeover. Each component is an essential part of the overall plan to give you a beautiful looking smile. Among the considerations are:

The color of you teeth. Silver fillings can be replaced with tooth-colored fillings, your natural teeth can be whitened and dental crowns, implants, bridges and porcelain veneers can all be shaded to precisely match. When determining the best color for your teeth, Dr. Ruff will factor in the your skin tone and color of your hair. We want your smile to look brighter and natural, too.

Alignment. A smile with straight teeth is not only more attractive, but healthier and easier to keep clean, too. In some cases, porcelain veneers can make a slightly crooked tooth appear straight. Other times, realignment through orthodontic treatment may be required.

Tooth Loss. The absence of even one tooth can not only impact the appearance of your smile, but may eventually also lead to bite problems. Dr. Ruff offers several options for tooth replacement including dental implants, crown and bridge or dentures.

Balance. To make sure you have well-proportioned teeth and an even gum line, Dr. Ruff can perform cosmetic bonding to reshape or lengthen teeth. In the case of a gummy smile, a periodontist can perform a procedure called a gum lift that results in a more pleasing ratio of gum to teeth.

Your smile makeover will be a step-by-step plan that delivers a smile you will enjoy sharing with others. For more information about a smile makeover, or to determine whether or not you are a candidate, contact Ascot Aesthetic Implants & Dentistry.
