Have you looked in the mirror recently and thought about doing something about your smile that doesn’t make you feel confident? If so, you’re not alone. Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist, Dr. Nicolas Ravon, regularly sees patients just like you who feel insecure about their smiles. One of the ways he can help you fall in love with your smile all over again is with a smile makeover.

A smile makeover is a comprehensive approach to addressing multiple aesthetic issues as part of an entire process.

1. Replace Missing Teeth

One of the first ways a smile makeover will enhance your smile is by replacing any missing teeth you have. Whether you’ve been living with missing teeth for years, or you have some replacement teeth you don’t particularly like, Dr. Ravon, can find your tooth replacement options for your needs. For single tooth replacements, he may recommend a dental implant and crown. For multiple teeth or full arch replacements, he will recommend an implant bridge or implant dentures. Whichever option you choose, he will ensure your replacement teeth look beautiful and function just as well.

2. Restore Broken, Damaged, or Decayed Teeth

Another way you can enhance your smile with a smile makeover is by restoring broken, damaged, or decayed teeth. Not only will your teeth look better by the end of your treatment, but they will be healthier too! Dr. Ravon will remove any tooth decay from your teeth before prepping them for restorative work. Most damaged teeth will benefit from dental crowns, inlays, onlays, or porcelain veneers. The restorations will enhance the appearance of your teeth as well as their strength and functionality.

3. Hide Stains and Discoloration

One of the top complaints people have about their smiles is that they’re stained or discolored. Fortunately, this is one of the easiest problems to address in your smile makeover! Dr. Ravon will recommend either professional teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or a combination of procedures to help you achieve your desired shade. If you opt for porcelain veneers to whiten your smile, you won’t have to worry about stains in the future. Veneers and restorations like crowns are stain-resistant. With that said, you can enjoy all the wine and coffee you can imagine without harming your smile.

4. Reshape and Resize Teeth

One of the aspects that can make your smile look less aesthetic is when your teeth are of different sizes and shapes. The more symmetrical your teeth look, the better your smile will look overall. Reshaping and resizing all of your teeth to look symmetrical can dramatically enhance your smile. Dr. Ravon can accomplish this by using dental crowns and porcelain veneers.

5. Recontour Misshaped Gums or Too Much Gum Tissue

Do you have a gummy smile? A gummy smile is when there is too much gum tissue showing when you smile. Typically when someone smiles, the gums will not show, only the teeth. In some cases, people may have misshapen gums too. Misshapen gums can occur from gum recession.

Dr. Ravon can improve the appearance of your gums with gum recontouring. In some cases, you might need a gum graft to repair missing gum tissue due to gum recession or gum disease. Dr. Ravon is a periodontist which means he specializes in gum health! With his expertise and cosmetic dentistry experience by your side, your gums will look even and flawless at the end of your smile makeover.

6. Straighten Teeth

Another way that a smile makeover can enhance your smile is by giving you perfectly straight teeth. Perhaps you have crooked, gapped, crowded, or misaligned teeth, these are all issues Dr. Ravon can address with Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign typically takes anywhere from six months to two years to complete treatment depending on your issues. If your issues are minor enough, he might be able to mask them using porcelain veneers. During your smile makeover consultation, Dr. Ravon will recommend the best treatment for you.

7. Hide Cracks and Chips

The last way a smile makeover can help enhance your smile is by hiding cracks and chips. Cracks and chips can happen from clenching and grinding your teeth, or from biting down on something you shouldn’t. As part of your smile makeover, Dr. Ravon will search for ways to restore the appearance of your smile while also enhancing the health of your teeth. Using porcelain veneers or dental crowns, your teeth will no longer have signs of damage, and they will also have more strength. The restorations will also prevent further damage from occurring.
