The treatment involves the upper 8 to 12 teeth with porcelain veneers and/or crowns, as well as laser gum contouring, typically to replace old restorations or address major aesthetic concerns. The number of teeth included in the Smile Design depends on how many teeth show in your smile and what specific aesthetic dilemmas need to be corrected.
In most cases the lower teeth are addressed as well in order to create a completely harmonious look and balanced bite. First, the teeth are straightened with Invisalign clear braces to improve aesthetics and function. Next, the teeth are whitened to the desired color with the Zoom! 45 minute in office whitening system. Aesthetic tooth contouring adds the finishing touches to a natural looking, symmetrical smile.
