When You May Need a Smile Makeover

Give Your Teeth a Makeover

Dr. Gleave can conceal the flaws above and eliminate your self-consciousness with porcelain veneers or prep-less veneers. Veneers are thin but sturdy coatings that he attaches to the front of any unsightly teeth, effectively hiding the imperfections from view. If you choose porcelain veneers for your smile makeover, he’ll remove a small amount of tooth enamel from the affected teeth and place custom veneers during the course of multiple visits. If you qualify, he may even be able to provide prep-less veneers in a single appointment. In all cases, he makes sure your veneers match the color of the untreated surrounding teeth for a seamless smile.

No Matter the Flaw, We Have the Fix

If veneers can’t fix your crooked teeth, Dr. Gleave can fit you with short-term orthodontics to straighten them. If they require more complex treatment, he also performs full mouth reconstruction to make your smile look the way it should. Sometimes the problem with a smile is not the teeth, but the gums that surround them. If you feel you have excessive gum tissue dominating your smile, you have what’s called a gummy smile. Dr. Gleave can give you a more balanced smile by removing small portions of gum tissue and carefully shaping the remaining gums around your teeth for a natural, pleasing appearance.
