Smile Makeovers for a Personalized Multi-Treatment Plan

Complex dental problems can require a combination of treatments to correct. At Medina Family Dental, we have a wide variety of cosmetic dental options to craft multi-treatment plans for you and your loved ones.

Also known as a full smile makeover, our multi-treatment approach to cosmetic dentistry in Castroville can address problems such as:

  • Gummy smiles
  • Minor bite misalignment
  • Minor chips and cracks
  • Tooth asymmetry
  • Tooth gaps
  • Tooth discoloration

Our dental professionals will recommend a smile makeover if no single treatment will help you achieve your smile goals. We will work with you to understand your dental history, goals, and concerns and determine whether a smile makeover is right for you. 

Wax Mockups for Clear Expectations

To give you a better idea of what to expect, we plan dental restorations with a wax mockup. The diagnostic cast helps determine the necessary laboratory and clinical procedures for the desired aesthetics and function. With this, you'll be able to see exactly what your smile will look like and make sure you are happy with your treatment before any work is done.

Veneers to Correct Imperfections

If you have chipped, worn, or discolored teeth that teeth whitening cannot effectively treat, we recommend veneers to cover the imperfections. Veneers are thin ceramic shells that bond to the front surface of your most visible teeth. They conceal minor issues, creating your ideal smile with ease. Our Castroville cosmetic dental team can customize porcelain veneers to your specific dental needs. Your veneer treatment options may include:

  • One veneer to conceal a chipped or broken tooth
  • One veneer for a discolored tooth
  • One or more veneers to correct slight misalignment
  • Up to eight veneers to lengthen worn-out teeth
  • Up to eight veneers for a complete smile makeover

We match the color of the veneers closely to the shade of your natural teeth. Before fitting veneers, our team will buff your teeth lightly to ensure a strong bond. We will use dental cement to affix the final veneers. The result is a natural-looking smile that boosts your confidence.

Teeth Whitening for a Brighter Smile

To create your custom take-home whitening trays, we'll first take impressions of your smile at our office. Once your take-home whitening kit is ready, you can pick it up from our office. The option is ideal if you want to whiten your smile over time or do an occasional touch-up before special events.

Porcelain Crowns to Rejuvenate Your Smile

Crowns are a highly versatile dental solution that can help treat various conditions. Before recommending porcelain crowns, Dr. Herod will first assess whether you're a good candidate for this natural-looking restorative option.  You may need a porcelain crown if:

  • You have decay or cavities
  • Your teeth have deep cracks or fractures
  • You have a tooth that needs support after a root canal treatment
  • A tooth with a large filling requires strengthening
  • A tooth needs reshaping or cosmetic enhancement

Porcelain crowns effectively safeguard your smile's aesthetics and function. They protect and reshape worn, broken, or badly decayed teeth without amalgam fillings. These crowns closely resemble your natural tooth and are biocompatible, meaning they pose no risk of gum irritation or allergies.

Tooth Bonding for Chipped Teeth

The tooth bonding procedure repairs cracked, chipped, or broken teeth. It also treats gaps between teeth, discolored teeth, and teeth that are shorter than the others. This treatment can give you a more uniform smile.

The bond is a composite resin that fills in where needed. The composite color resembles your enamel for a natural look.

SureSmile® Orthodontics for a Beautiful Smile

SureSmile aligners can help you enjoy a new smile and a healthy bite. During your consultation with Dr. Herod, we will take a digital scan that forms the foundation of the planning process. We will design customized clear aligners that can subtly transform your smile.

SureSmile aligners are a favorite option for many because they save you time with fewer in-office dental visits. They promote better overall dental health and hygiene for a more confident smile.
