Makeover your smile, change your life … A guide to cosmetic services and aesthetic restorations

Many of the smiles featured on this website “speak” for themselves. Just look at how renewed our patients’ faces look! Very worn, stained, unevenly-spaced (and unevenly-shaped) teeth are no more – they have been replaced instead with lovely white, uniformly-shaped, evenly-spaced, and otherwise balanced features. These improvements add up to a smile that is attractive and exudes health, vigor, and confidence.

While our patients’ smiles often do the “talking” (as they tend to speak volumes), those who have undergone smile makeovers at the office of Advance Dental Arts Center in West Linn, Oregon, often share with us the “behind-the-scenes” transformations. They feel better about themselves. They can enjoy meals again and eat more nutritiously and comfortably. Their formerly confident selves are back, no longer embarrassed by obvious gaps in their smiles or visible flaws, which may also betray decay or damage that requires prompt restorative treatment. 

The makeover recommended and supported at every stage by our dentist, Dr. Kimberly Wright, is as unique as you are! Your one-of-a-kind treatment plan considers many factors, notably the conditions or cosmetic concerns you desire to change or address. We’ve highlighted a few of those concerns and their associated services or treatments as follows:

  • Yellow or stained teeth – Professional teeth whitening can work wonders. You can safely, predictably, and comfortably lighten your teeth from the comfort of home or, for the fastest results, from our office as a chairside procedure. Patients with stubborn intrinsic (internal) discoloration may benefit from dental bonding or porcelain veneers. 
  • Gaps between teeth – Bonding or veneers may also be applied to cover up excess spaces between the teeth. Orthodontic treatment may be necessary for more extensive spacing issues, including crooked or crowded teeth. 
  • Chips, cracks, or fractures – Bonding with dental composite or porcelain veneers can disguise chipped teeth or small cracks. For more severe cracks or fractures, dental restorations such as crowns can restore the strength of the affected tooth. 
  • Missing teeth – Patients who have lost or require a single tooth extraction may be candidates for a natural-looking dental bridge or aesthetically-pleasing tooth replacement with a dental implant. Strategically-placed implants can also support many missing teeth or all the teeth in the upper or lower arches of the jaws.

An expert in oral and maxillofacial anatomy and function, Dr. Wright understands the impact other structures have on the lovely aesthetics of the teeth and smile. For this reason, she also offers gum contouring to address a “gummy” smile and to achieve an attractive balance between the teeth and gums.

This is merely a glimpse into the many ways that Advance Dental Arts Center blends dentistry and artistry to enhance your smile. Call us at (503) 694-4776 to schedule a smile consultation at our West Linn office and to find out more.
