Cosmetic dentist gives people in Midlothian VA a reason to smile

Many people travel great distances for spectacular smile makeovers. Residents of Richmond and surrounding communities such as Midlothian VA are fortunate to have access to world-class care right in their backyard. Dr. Charles Martin, of Richmond Smile Center, is well known as one of the premier cosmetic dentists in our area.

If you have a few specific aesthetic complaints about your smile, you may only need one or two cosmetic procedures. However, if you have several issues with the appearance of your teeth, a full smile makeover may be right for you.

A smile makeover includes a unique combination of treatments, designed to address your individual needs. Dr. Martin will perform a thorough examination, to determine what procedures may be most appropriate for you. In addition to your teeth, he will consider several factors such as your hair color, skin tone, gumline, lips, and other facial features. Be sure to communicate what your goals are, and why you are unhappy with the way your smile looks now. We each have a unique concept of ideal beauty, and Dr. Martin tailors cosmetic treatment according to your preferences.

During your consultation, Dr. Martin will discuss various aspects of your smile that can be improved, including:
  • Color – Teeth whitening is the simplest way to brighten your smile. However, some stains are permanent and may need to be covered with veneers or bonding. In some cases, old dental work may need to be replaced. Gold or amalgam (silver) fillings can be replaced with cosmetic ones. Even porcelain may need to be replaced, because it will not respond to whitening treatment. If your restorations match your dingy teeth, they would look dark after bleaching.
  • Gaps – Missing teeth are a serious oral health problem as well as ruining the appearance of your smile. Those gaps can cause healthy teeth to lean, increasing your risk of gum disease and cavities. Dr. Martin will discuss the various options available. For most patients, the best choice is implant-supported restorations, which offer optimal stability, comfort, and beauty.
  • Tooth size – Large teeth can be reshaped, and small teeth can be enhanced with veneers or bonding. Short, broken, or worn down teeth may be restored with porcelain crowns. Sometimes, the problem is not your teeth at all. A receding gum line, often caused by gum disease, makes teeth appear too long. Similarly, excess gum tissue can make your teeth look short. Gum contouring may be recommended.
  • Harmony – The proportions of your teeth in relation to each other and your facial features can make the difference between a naturally lovely smile and a fake looking one. Symmetry is also important; the size, shape, and spacing of the teeth on one side should mirror the teeth on the other side to avoid a lopsided look.
These are just a few of the many aesthetic issues that can be corrected with a smile makeover. Call the Richmond Smile Center at 804-417-7203 and schedule a consultation to learn about your options.
