What Needs to Happen Prior to Having a Full Smile Makeover
Boca Raton cosmetic dentist Adam Barbag explains that before a patient can get veneers or a full smile makeover, the supporting teeth and gums need to be healthy.
Veneers are great. They look wonderful. The problem is if the supporting structure isn’t there then the veneers will last just a few months or years.
With a full smile makeover, we have to make sure the gums, the bone levels; everything is okay to start with. We have to have a good foundation. Once the foundation is where we need it to be then we can go ahead and fix the teeth, fix the heart of the issue.
A lot of people do sometimes overlook those things beforehand, the overall health of the teeth, the gums, the soft tissues, the tongue. We need to make sure that the foundation is steady and will be able to support veneers or crowns down the road for years to come.
