What is Smile Design? There is a lot of excitement these days in dentistry about smile enhancement and dental esthetics. Smile Design is a protocol of managing the shapes, contours and color of the teeth as they appear in a smile and are proportioned in an individual’s face. A smile makeover improves the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures such as dental veneers, crowns, composite, implants and teeth whitening all of which are carefully designed to give your smile a natural look and feel.
Here at the RC Dental Clinics, we believe that everyone should be wearing a smile they’re proud of. We often see patients who complain about fractured, heavily stained or worn out teeth. There are many different options to correct these problems. Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way, and whether you need a few minor enhancements or a full transformation, our cosmetic dentists can help.
There are times when we need to do a combination of cosmetic dental treatments to rebuild the natural beauty, health and function of our patients’ smiles. This may sound complex, but smile makeover is something Dr. Rene Cabrera does it on a daily basis.
With proper care, a smile makeover can last up to 20 years, in some cases more. Caring for your new smile is quite simple. Treat them like your natural teeth. Brush, floss daily and see your dentist regularly to prevent any problem before they arise.
A veneer is a thin piece of porcelain used to re-create the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. They are custom made to the contour of your teeth so you can rest assured they will look and feel just like your natural teeth. Most people will not even be able to tell you have veneers due to their similar appearance. The picture-perfect smile you’ve always wanted awaits you. Veneers are a less intrusive option than crowns. Veneers can be used to close gaps or correct small misalignments. Patients also choose veneers as a cosmetic solution to enhance the brightness of their teeth, correcting issues like discoloration, fractures, and chips. You don’t have to cover your smile because of chipped or cracked teeth.
Typically, these veneers can last anywhere from 5 to 25 years with the right care and maintenance.

How is a veneer applied?
Veneers usually require two visits – one to prepare the tooth and one to apply the veneer. During the first visit, a very small amount of tooth material is removed to make room for the veneer so it fits comfortably on the tooth surface without overlapping neighboring teeth. An impression is taken and sent to the lab where the veneer will be created. The tint is also selected during this appointment, and a temporary veneer may be made using composites to protect the tooth while the veneer is being made. At the second visit, the tooth surface will be cleaned and the veneer will be applied using a strong dental adhesive, then gently shaped for a comfortable fit
How does it work? Teeth whitening is accomplished by release of the oxygen ion in close proximity to tooth structure. Overall whitening depends on the number of oxygen ions available and amount of time they are on tooth structure. Oxygen ions enter enamel and dentin and are attracted to the double bonds of stain molecules. The ions attack and destroy the double bonds leaving shorter stain molecules that are more easily soluble and removed from the tooth by oral fluids. The key is the release of adequate numbers of oxygen ions and a carrying gel that pushes the ions into the tooth. Teeth whitening helps remove stains and also discoloration of teeth.
The predictability of tooth whitening comes from a correct diagnosis of staining. Predictability also depends on:
– Patient habits that may contribute to staining
– True expectations
– Patient compliance
Risks of Bleaching (whitening) your teeth)
Bleach may increase tooth sensitivity. Also, too much application can possibly damage your tooth enamel or gums. To avoid damage and risks, it is highly recommended that you have this procedure done by Dr. Rene Cabrera. For more information contact us, RC Dental Clinic, at 305 596 0322.
The term “cosmetic dentistry” is somewhat of a paradox in itself. In reality, there is not specialization within the dental field of cosmetic dentistry. It’s simply a name we’ve given to a vast majority of dental procedures or treatments that can help you with the aesthetics of your smile.
