There are many elements to a perfect smile, and at Wendling Cosmetic and Reconstructive Dentistry serving Portland, Oregon we explain each element ahead of time. They are each addressed in a comprehensive smile makeover plan, designed just for you.
First and foremost, a beautiful smile is a healthy smile. That's why every procedure we do takes into account your overall dental health—from the health of your teeth and gums to the proper alignment of your jaw. Every procedure we offer uses the latest, safest, and most effective materials and technologies.
What is a smile makeover?
Your smile makeover is a thorough, customized plan to give you the smile you've always dreamed of having. We will address all your dental issues, from repairs to cosmetic enhancements, as part of a single, comprehensive plan.
To begin your smile makeover, Dr. Wendling assesses the health of your gums, teeth, and jaw joint. She learns more about what you want in your smile, and pinpoints how we can help you achieve those goals, as quickly, safely, and effectively as possible.
Your smile makeover may consist of multiple procedures, depending on your needs and interests. Some of the most common procedures are:
- Repair of damaged teeth using porcelain inlays and onlays, or tooth-colored restorations
Use of porcelain veneers to give a new surface to the front teeth
- Replacement of existing metal mercury fillings with dental porcelain or tooth-colored dental bonding, for a healthier, stronger, and more beautiful smile
- Professional tooth whitening to brighten and whiten your smile
- Treatment for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD), to treat the pain and discomfort of a misaligned bite, and to protect your smile for years to come
- Gum recontouring, for better gum health and a more attractive gum line
- Invisalign clear aligners, to correct misalignment without unsightly and inconvenient braces
Dr. Wendling and her highly-trained team will take the time to review your Smile Makeover needs and your goals with you, and will work to develop the right custom smile makeover for you.
