Achieve a Dazzling New Smile with a Smile Makeover
Have you ever wondered how you might look with an entirely different smile specifically designed to complement all your best features? A smile makeover at our Yuma, AZ, practice may be the ideal treatment choice for you. Drs. Thor G. Thorson and Stephen S. Garner offer smile makeovers to address cosmetic flaws while enhancing overall beauty and symmetry. This custom combination of two or more treatments and can include porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and cosmetic gum contouring to give you a smile that makes a lasting impression on everyone you meet.
Assessing Candidacy for a Smile Makeover
When you visit our office for your initial consultation, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth and gums to assess your candidacy for a smile makeover.
The best candidates are those with healthy teeth and gums who wish to address issues such as small chips and cracks, worn teeth, small gaps, minor misalignment, an uneven gum line, and dental stains.
Our dedication to patient comfort and satisfaction has helped us earn a stellar reputation, and we have been voted as one of Yuma's best dental practices.
Patients should note that before recommending any cosmetic treatment, your dentist must treat any underlying oral health concerns including decay, cavities, bruxism, severe malocclusion, and periodontal (gum) disease.
Commonly Combined Treatments
Each smile makeover treatment is unique because it is designed according to the individual patient's need and goals. Smile makeovers usually consist of a combination of:
- Teeth Whitening: A process of eliminating deep dental stains caused by dark-colored foods and beverages, certain medications, and other factors
- Porcelain Veneers: Thin porcelain shells designed to hide small imperfections and achieve symmetry by altering the appearance of a tooth
- Dental Bonding: A treatment similar to veneers that involves using tooth-colored resin to hide imperfections
- Gum Contouring: Removal of very small amounts of gum tissue in order to create an attractive frame for your smile
Advanced Technology for Effective Treatment
At Gila Ridge Dental, we use several advanced tools to provide the most comfortable and effective dental care. We incorporate digital x-rays for accurate examination and planning, and a soft tissue laser to perform gum contouring with minimal discomfort and expedited recovery. Our dentists also offer same-day restorations created using the CEREC® system.
Financing Your New Smile
Since cosmetic treatments are elective procedures, dental insurance plans typically do not cover them. However, to help patients easily afford our world-class treatments, we offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Lending Club.
