Customizing our Treatments Just For You
When determining smile makeover plans, Dr. Krueger will take into account not only a patient's aesthetic goals, but also their schedules, lifestyles, and budgets. A smile makeover may include:
- Porcelain Veneers: For patients who want to address several imperfections with a single cosmetic enhancement, porcelain veneers are a great option. These thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells affix to the front of a patient's natural teeth. Porcelain veneers cover discoloration, chips, misalignment, cracks, and gaps within the smile. Patients may choose traditional veneers, which require the removal of enamel from the front of the natural teeth, and LUMINEERS®, a veneer option that requires very little, if any, preparation. Dr. Krueger helps patients determine which option is right for them depending upon whether they want a permanent cosmetic treatment, or one that may be removed in the future.
- Gum Contouring: Gum contouring, or gum reshaping, is frequently performed as a complementary treatment with porcelain veneer application. Using a dental laser, the procedure involves the removal of excess gum tissue to expose more of the tooth, or achieve symmetry in uneven gums. A beautifully shaped gum line helps a smile look more attractive.
- Teeth Whitening: Just as a healthy gum line is an essential part of a beautiful smile, so are bright, white teeth. As part of your smile makeover, Dr. John Krueger offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments. We offer Zoom!® products that are effective and cause little or no tooth sensitivity.
- Essix® Invisible Aligners: For patients in need of minor teeth realignment, we offer Essix® invisible aligners. This treatment gradually moves teeth using a series of clear, discreet aligners. The Essix® treatment is intended to provide minor cosmetic realignments for cosmetic purposes, concentrating on two to four teeth. Essix® costs only about 25% of the price of other clear aligners, and is a much faster treatment option.
Personalized Analysis and Models
To ensure that you achieve the smile you want, the first step in the smile makeover process is a personalized smile analysis. Dr. Krueger takes photos of your smile and discusses your goals. Next, he creates diagnostic models to aid in showing you how different treatments can create the look you want to achieve. It is important that smile makeover patients have good oral health and a stable foundation. Dr. Kroeger can determine if your mouth is healthy, and provide any restorative treatments you need as well.
