Be Ready For A Smile Makeover, Here’s Everything You Should Know
Updated: Jan 23
Nothing beats a great smile! The right one can make you feel and look more confident and enhance your overall attractiveness.
Unfortunately, aging can negatively affect your smile by causing:
Stained or discolored teeth
A “Gummy” smile
Cracked, broken, missing, or uneven teeth
Fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth and chin
Thinning of lips
Luckily, our smile makeover package contains a series of restorative procedures that can help you regain your beautiful smile and self-confidence back. So, keep on reading to know more.
1. Teeth Whitening
A number of factors (i.e., smoking, consumption of red wine, tea, coffee, and certain medications) can cause teeth to become discolored (yellow, stained, or dark in color). However, teeth discoloration can be corrected simply with an in-house tooth whitening procedure.
A professional tooth whitening procedure involves the use of hydrogen peroxide, a chemical that can remove tea or coffee stains and other forms of discoloration caused by poor dental hygiene.
Once the treatment is complete, the results can last up to 2 years depending on your dental hygiene and dietary habits.
Invisalign® is a trademarked treatment that uses a series of invisible and removable clear aligners to:
Align and straighten your uneven teeth;
Correct crowded teeth;
Remove spaces between teeth
Correct bite issues (e.g., overbite, open bite, underbite, and crossbite)
Not only does Invisalign® provide a functional advantage, but this treatment can also help broaden your smile, support your lips and balance your facial dimensions by realigning your teeth and the overlying soft tissues (cheeks and lips).
Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® aligners are easy to use and require much fewer trips to the dentists once the trays are made. They can do wonders to transform your smile in as little as 6 months. However, some people might have to use them for a year to get the desired results.
For people who have broken, chipped, uneven or significantly stained teeth, veneers can be a great solution. They are placed over teeth to restore damaged teeth, protect the tooth surface from further staining and damage, and improve the overall look of your smile.
Moreover, they can be customized to match your natural teeth and can last for several years with the proper care.
4. Restylane and Juvederm
A beautiful smile doesn’t just involve good teeth, but also involves your lips and the areas around your mouth and nose. However, aging along with loss of facial volume, can cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear around your lips (aside from causing them to thin), making them look older.
At Vikara, we use both Restylane and Juvéderm - some of the most highly-trusted and preferred lines of FDA-approved injectable fillers to produce a more youthful smile by:
Restoring volume loss in your lips or adding volume
Reducing the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles around the mouth
So, if you’re looking to get a complete smile makeover and regain your self-confidence back, Dr. Julio Hernandez can help you achieve that safely and
effectively. With his nearly three decades worth of experience in cosmetic dentistry, orthodontic and prosthodontic services, and over a decade of experience in facial aesthetics, you can rest assured that you’ll get nothing but the best possible results.
