Our approach to your smile makeover

Dr. Amini takes a series of digital photos to use in planning and cosmetic imaging.

A confident new smile in just a visit or two!

A smile makeover doesn’t have to be a long or complex procedure. Sometimes teeth whitening or porcelain veneers can dramatically improve your smile in just one or two visits. However, Dr. Amini doesn’t ever cut corners, and will always advise you on what is best for your oral health.

Custom treatment plans

Dr. Amini conducts a thorough consultation with each patient to determine the best solutions for their particular needs, goals and budget. Because of Dr. Amini’s considerable training and experience, he is able to offer solutions for even complex situations.

The treatment planning is determined also by what must be done in order to correct any functional issues, such as a misaligned bite.

Dr. Amini’s Smile Design Process

Cosmetic Dentistry

For porcelain veneers patients, the smile design process can include selecting the shade in which to make the porcelain

Dr. Amini credits his high-quality craftsmanship to his meticulous preparatory work. His careful planning of the aesthetic and functional aspects of your new smile can include the following steps:

  • Full oral exam
  • Full set of digital X-rays
  • Full series of digital and intraoral photographs
  • Study models of your teeth— a white stone model taken from impressions of your teeth, used to study in three dimensions your teeth and bite.
  • A “wax-up.” This is a study model of your teeth on which tooth-colored wax has been added to simulate the final smile design. Dr. Amini uses it to study where your teeth are currently and where they need to be and uses it as a blueprint for the final restoration. Dr. Amini often also uses this wax-up to make a mold of your smile design to try in your mouth so you can see what your smile will look like
  • Further planning of your new smile using digital imaging software
  • Bite alignment check to see if you have any jaw joint issues
  • Selection of the color shade and shape of veneers or crown for veneers and crown patients

Your cosmetic treatment can include a variety of procedures, including:

Conditions Cosmetic Dentistry Can Fix

Yellow, stained or discolored teeth

Cosmetic DentistryWe offer powerful in-office and at-home teeth whitening options. The whitening gel deeply penetrates the tooth and quickly whitens your teeth by several shades. For more permanent whitening, Dr. Amini recommends porcelain veneers or dental bonding.

Gaps between teeth

Invisalign clear aligners can close gaps between the teeth. For a fast fix, Dr. Amini uses porcelain veneers or crowns.

Crooked teeth

Dr. Amini offers Invisalign clear aligners for quick, virtually invisible teeth straightening. Mild cases can also be quickly straightened with porcelain veneers.

Chips or rough spots

Porcelain veneers are a long-lasting solution to uneven or rough tooth surfaces and chipped teeth. Dr. Amini can also use dental bonding, a tooth-colored resin material, as a more economical solution for correcting these imperfections.

Missing teeth

Dental implants are the best option for replacing teeth, as they feel, look and act like natural teeth and can last a lifetime when well cared for.

Old silver fillings

Cosmetic DentistryDr. Amini can replace your old silver amalgam fillings with tooth-colored fillings or natural-looking, durable onlays or inlays.

Mismatched or misshapen teeth

Dr. Amini uses aesthetic, natural-looking veneers or crowns to correct irregular teeth shapes.
