  1. As you may imagine, the first thing that our dentists do in these situations is to perform thorough oral health assessments. We need to understand what kind of dental damage you’re dealing with, as well as the extent of this damage.

  1. Once we have a complete understanding of the current state of your smile, we’ll start evaluating treatments that can be used to make your smile healthy and sound again. In our office, we always prioritize the health of patient’s smile first; once you have a strong dental foundation, we can refine the aesthetics. Repairing damage may entail using dental crowns, dental bonding, dental implants among other treatments. Whenever we use a restorative treatment, we make sure that the results are attractive and natural looking.

  1. Finally, our team may use some aesthetically-focused treatments to enhance the appearance of your smile. You may benefit, for example, from professional dental whitening to minimize existing stains, or gum tissue reshaping to improve the visual balance of your smile. These are the kinds of treatments that give you smile an added boost.

A well-designed restorative treatment plan emphasizes improving oral health, and delivers attractive aesthetic results as a natural result.
