Comprehensive smile rehabilitation is a process that can improve the health and appearance of your smile. With that in mind, every patient’s plan of treatment for a full smile makeover may look different and will depend on current gum tissue health, the strength of existing teeth, and final results.
If you’re in need of comprehensive dental care to repair and restore your smile, consider these recommended steps taken to ensure your goals are met:
Step 1: Building a Foundation of Oral Health
You can’t have a beautiful new smile that lasts and feels great without first addressing base level problems that contributed to the damage in the first place. Gum disease can spread, compromising teeth and underlying bone. Dr. Guier provides comprehensive gum treatments to ensure your smile is healthy before additional care is provided.
Step 2: Replacing Failing Teeth
Missing teeth hamper the appearance of your mouth and the ability to comfortably enjoy eating a meal; replacing them is crucial for cosmetic and functional benefits. Dental patients have more restorative options now than ever, including permanent prosthetics with implant dentistry. Depending on your dental health needs, budget, and overall expectations, teeth can be placed as single implant supported restorations or even full-arch prosthetics in cases where the remaining teeth are failing or there has already been total tooth loss.
Step 3: Enhancing Healthy Teeth with your Family Dentist
Teeth that are structurally strong and free of decay can be enhanced to appear brighter and more uniform. By working closely with your family dentist, our Shreveport dental implant specialist is an important part of supporting future cosmetic dental restorations.
To determine where you can begin your plan to gain a whole new smile, contact Dr. Guier for more information. We are happy to welcome you to our office with or without a referral from a family dentist.
