From Flawed to Flawless
The Steps of a Smile Transformation
At My Indy Dental Center, restoring the cosmetic appearance of your healthy teeth begins with a consultation, during which Dr. Randall will learn about your smile and oral health goals. Then, we’ll complete an examination of your oral structures and evaluate digital imaging to create a customized treatment plan that will not only improve the look of each individual tooth, but create a symmetrical smile that complements your facial esthetics, lips, and even your skin tone. Our treatment plan is tailored to you, and may include treatments such as crowns, bridges, veneers and/or teeth whitening to create the smile you have always envisioned.
Then, using our high-quality natural-looking materials and advanced technology, we complete your treatments with technical skill and an artistic flair. The length of your full treatment will be determined by the number and types of procedures you’ll need to restore your full smile esthetics. Once your treatments are complete, your flawless and beautiful smile will be revealed! With proper at-home hygiene care and regular professional dental appointments, you will be able to enjoy a gorgeous smile, improved confidence and better oral health for a lifetime!
Select Smile Makeover Treatments
Dental crowns are porcelain “caps” that cover your natural tooth. They can dramatically improve esthetics like color, size and shape of a tooth, while also restoring strength and function. Crowns can also be used after root canal therapy to restore a dental implant.
Dental bridges are a series of porcelain dental crowns that replace one or more missing teeth in a row. They attach to one or both teeth on either side of the empty tooth socket(s), to restore both esthetics and function to the area, giving you a complete smile.
If you have cosmetic flaws like gaps, chips, crookedness and/or discoloration, porcelain veneers in Indianapolis, IN can remedy all of these issues at once! Each veneer is a thin shell that covers the front surface of a single tooth. Dental veneers require a minimal amount of tooth enamel to be removed, so they will fit naturally alongside each other or existing teeth.
Professional teeth whitening can brighten teeth by multiple shades in just a single session! Our professional-grade treatment at My Indy Dental Center penetrates deep into the inner layers of your teeth, to remove deep stains and surface-level stains. Teeth whitening from Dr. Randall is personalized and monitored for stunning, long-term results.
Braces use metal brackets and wires to straighten crooked teeth by strategically applying torque and pressure. From minor gapped or crooked teeth to severely misaligned bites, our orthodontic options can provide significant cosmetic results. Depending on your unique case, braces often take a few months to a few years to completely align teeth.
An occlusal adjustment helps create a harmonious bite for teeth that don’t fit together properly (malocclusion). This treatment involves altering the surfaces of the problem teeth so the pressure and force when biting and chewing are distributed evenly. Occlusal adjustments help reduce teeth grinding and clenching, jaw pain and headaches, while also protecting other cosmetic dentistry treatments you receive.
Similarly durable but with greater esthetics, composite fillings are the metal-free alternative to amalgam fillings. Composite is colored like natural teeth, so the filling will blend with your tooth. They can be used as new fillings, and can replace metal fillings to eliminate the noticeable gray or black spots on teeth, as well.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays fix teeth with moderate damage that does not require a dental crown. Inlays rest inside the molars, between the cusps, and often restore a tooth after a large cavity is treated. Onlays are custom-made to replace a larger portion of a tooth, usually involving one or more cusps.
A “gummy” smile is when too much gum tissue covers over the tooth crowns and creates a disproportionate tooth-to-gum ratio. Crown lengthening reshapes the gums around the teeth in a more symmetrical and appealing way. This procedure may also be completed to access areas of the tooth that have decay.
Dental implants at My Indy Dental Center permanently replace one or more missing teeth to restore normal function and natural esthetics. Implants are considered the “gold standard” in tooth replacement, due to their superior strength and longevity. They also provide the greatest health benefits by being secured in the jawbone.
