A smile makeover improves your smile through having one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures performed. These cosmetic dentistry procedures include cosmetic tooth bonding, dental veneers, Invisalign, and teeth whitening. All of these treatments will improve the look of your smile and instill confidence in your oral health.
Dental Veneers: Covering And Restoring Your Damaged Teeth
One way that your smile can be made over is to have veneers placed over your imperfect teeth.

Dental veneers are not only a common procedure when we perform smile makeovers, but they are also known as one of the best options for improving your smile.
Cosmetic Tooth Bonding For An Improved Smile
Cosmetic tooth bonding is another way to cosmetically repair your teeth as part of a smile makeover. If you have chipped, cracked, or broken teeth, cosmetic bonding can greatly restore those teeth to give them the look and functionality they had before they were damaged.
A cosmetic bond is performed with a resin material that we paint onto the damaged area and harden with a special light. After the resin material is hardened, it will take on the shape of the tooth as well as the look and color of your natural teeth.
When you have a cosmetic tooth bonding, you will go through three steps. First is the preparation period that consists of Dr. Hanson matching the resin materials color to your natural teeth. Second is prepping your teeth to have cosmetic bond applied. This process includes roughening the teeth to ready them for the application of the resin material that comes directly after. Last is shaping the bonding material to the desired look. After all of these steps are finished, you will have a brand-new smile given to you by Oregon Smile Care Center.

Your smile makeover can also be performed by having one of our teeth whitening procedures or through Invisalign clear braces. We will soon offer the Invisalign Outcome Simulator that will let you see what your teeth will look like after having treatment. After your smile makeover is complete, top it all off by getting your teeth whitened.
