Smile Makeover La JollaWhile Dr. Winter of Sarah Winter Dental is an excellent general dentist, she is also one of the most sought-after cosmetic dentists in the La Jolla area due to her dentistry expertise and artistic touch. If you’re unhappy with your smile, you may have found this page because you’re looking for a complete smile makeover. Using a combination of dental procedures and technology, a smile makeover can totally change the appearance of your teeth and correct a number of dental issues. Read on to learn some of the most popular dental issues that smile makeovers can correct.

  • Straighten Your Teeth

One of the most common reasons that La Jolla patients seek out Dr. Winter is for help straightening their misaligned teeth. Teeth that are crowded and malpositioned can not only be aesthetically displeasing but can cause oral health concerns too. Using either clear braces or Invisalign, Dr. Winter can give you the smile makeover you desire and the straightened teeth you’ve always wanted.

  • Close Teeth Gaps

Gaps in your teeth can be an unattractive condition. With a smile makeover, there are several ways to address these issues. First, you can choose clear braces, the most traditional method for closing gaps. If you don’t want the metal and wires, you might be a candidate for Invisalign, which both straightens teeth and closes gaps. Finally, a faster option for filling gaps is porcelain veneers, which can be applied in just 3 visits to Dr. Winter’s office.

  • Fix Chipped or Broken Teeth

Over time, teeth can chip or break due to normal wear and tear, sports injuries or other accidents. This unwanted damage isn’t only unappealing for La Jolla residents but can lead to further damage. A smile makeover with porcelain veneers and/or dental crowns can cover these dental issues, giving you whole, smooth teeth that will make you proud to smile. 

  • Even Out Uneven Teeth

Some teeth come in unevenly, where one adjacent tooth is noticeably longer or shorter than the other. Teeth can also become uneven due to normal wear and tear. Porcelain veneers and/or dental crowns can repair these issues in a natural-looking way.

  • Replace a Worn-Out Looking Smile

Over the years, your smile can look weathered or tired. This is often due to yellowing of the teeth, worn down teeth, chips, breaks and more. Combining different cosmetic modalities such as teeth whitening, veneers and/or crowns can freshen up your smile, and even injections of Botox around your mouth can distract from frown lines and wrinkles and place emphasis on your new pearly whites. 

  • Add Aesthetics and Functionality, Too

Sometimes a tooth is unsightly, and it also needs its functionality addressed. In this case, a dental crown is an excellent way to treat both cosmetic and functional needs. A tooth with a deep cavity, for example, can be drilled down, then covered with a realistic-looking crown that appears naturally beautiful.
