If an aspect of your smile bothers you but you don’t know quite how to fix it, you should speak to Irvine dentists Drs. Ali and Shery Mansouri of Serene Dental Center. Our dentists love helping patients achieve the smile of their dreams and enjoy the confidence that comes with a gorgeous smile. Whether you need a minor touch-up to a complete smile transformation, Drs. Ali and Shery can help you enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come. Below, our team shares some common scenarios that we encounter, and how we may go about addressing them.
Scenario #1: Your teeth are yellow or stained.
Teeth stains and discoloration are a common concern. Luckily, Drs. Ali and Shery offer a few solutions. We can perform Zoom! in-office teeth whitening to brighten your teeth; or, we can create customized whitening trays for you to use in the comfort and convenience of your own home. Stains that won’t respond to the whitening process may be covered by a porcelain veneer.
Scenario #2: Your teeth are crowded or widely spaced.
Let’s say you are bothered by teeth that are crooked, crowded or awkwardly spaced. Depending on the severity of your case, you may qualify for orthodontic treatment with the Invisalign system, which uses clear, custom aligners to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position and alignment. Invisalign allows you to straighten your teeth discreetly and confidently, without the look and feel of traditional metal braces.
Scenario #3: You are embarrassed by chipped, cracked or otherwise imperfect teeth.
Small chips and cracks may not threaten the structure or health of a tooth, but they can detract from your smile’s appearance. A great way to address chips, cracks or other flaws in the teeth is by placing porcelain veneers over the surface of the affected teeth. Veneers create the illusion of flawless teeth and a gorgeous smile. An alternative is to apply a small amount of filling material and sculpt it to cover up tiny blemishes.
Scenario #4: You have multiple concerns about your smile.
It is not uncommon for our dentists to meet patients that are bothered by multiple aspects of their smile, such as crowding and stains, chipped front teeth and/or noticeable spaces in between the teeth. These situations often require a comprehensive smile makeover, which involves combining multiple treatments to attain the desired results. We can customize the treatment plan to address the concerns you have about your smile, incorporating veneers, teeth whitening, Invisalign and other procedures as necessary.
