Age and wear on your teeth can produce extreme effects. Acidic and sugary foods and drinks wear away the enamel on your teeth, and stains from tea, coffee, and wine appear over time. Due to these factors, your smile’s brightness diminishes significantly.
Injuries to your teeth can also dull your smile. Broken and chipped teeth steal the confidence from your smile and make your teeth vulnerable to decay and further damage.

Dental Makeover & Teeth Whitening Treatments
A sparkling smile makeover will begin with teeth whitening. The kind of whitening treatment that is best for your teeth depends on the color of your teeth and the health of your tooth enamel. Your Raleigh Dental Loft cosmetic dentist will assess your teeth during the initial consultation and determine the best treatment plan for your new smile.
Whitening procedures take some time, beginning with tooth preparation. Special toothpaste helps prepare the enamel for one to two weeks before the in-office treatment. This preparation will reduce the sensitivity of the teeth and gums to the bleaching solution. When it’s time for the whitening itself, the gums are protected, and the solution is applied to the teeth. This solution is then activated by a special LED light.
Smile Makeover & Dental Bonding
Dental bonding uses a composite resin that is applied to the teeth to form a fresh surface. After your cosmetic dentist prepares the tooth surface, the liquid is applied, and a composite resin is placed on top. The dentist then shapes the resin, sculpting it to the proper shape and texture comparative to your other teeth. When the composite resin hardens, the dentist then polishes it to make it white and shiny.
Smile Makeover & Dental Veneers
For teeth that are broken or chipped, dental veneers may be a more practical choice than whitening. Dental veneers are ideal for otherwise healthy teeth that have cosmetic dental issues that need something more substantial than whitening.
You may be a good candidate for a smile makeover with dental veneers if you have:
- Discolored or darkened teeth
- Cosmetic defects
- Spaces or gaps between teeth
- Crooked or misaligned teeth
At Raleigh Dental Loft, we offer several types of dental veneers and are ready to help you choose the best one for your needs. All veneers are tooth-colored and customized to fit over your natural teeth. These veneers may be made of porcelain, ceramic, or composite resin, though porcelain veneers are the most commonly used.
Dental Makeover & Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are a vital part of both cosmetic dental procedures and dental restoration procedures. Crowns are the final step in a root canal procedure, and they protect the freshly repaired tooth as it heals.
Dental crowns are porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) and may require several visits to complete the application and restoration. Since it is metal-free, a porcelain crown is the best choice for you if you need dental crowns and have a metal allergy.
Full Smile Makeover
Dental crowns are not only used for cosmetic treatments. If your teeth have been damaged or if you have missing teeth for any reason, dental implants may be the solution to restore your smile.
Dental implant restoration consists of three elements:
- The implant, which is a titanium screw that is implanted in the jawbone and functions as the root
- The abutment, which fits into the implant and holds it together with the dental crown
- The dental crown, the visible part of the implant
Dental implants are not used for cosmetic purposes, though they have cosmetic benefits. If only a few teeth are missing, dental implants may hold fixed bridges of multiple crowns to repair the area.
