If you’ve been considering a smile makeover, contact Washington D.C. dentist Dr. Christopher Banks for a consultation. We offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments in our Chevy Chase dental office including porcelain veneers, tooth bonding, teeth whitening and Invisalign.
Many patients we see have cosmetic dental concerns that are caused by an underlying functional problem. Dr. Banks will perform a comprehensive evaluation to ensure that any health or functional problems are corrected to provide a natural looking, long lasting result.
Our Smile Makeover Process
When you visit our Chevy Chase dental office, you’ll receive a comprehensive examination. Our office is brand new, located near Mazza Gallerie. We will evaluate your dental health and discuss your cosmetic concerns. Then, Dr. Banks will create a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve the smile you want.
What To Expect
The time it takes to complete a smile makeover depends on your needs and goals. Teeth whitening can be completed in a single visit, while porcelain veneers might take two to three visits to complete. With Invisalign, you can have a straighter smile in 6 to 12 months.
The first step in smile design is a comprehensive evaluation. Dr. Banks will examine your teeth, gums, mouth, jaw joints and muscles. He will consider your facial appearance to ensure your new smile looks natural.
Our office features state of the art technology including digital dental x-rays, digital imaging and digital impressions. Dr. Banks can create a 2-D and 3-D models to help you visualize what your new smile will look like.
Once you have decided on a treatment plan, Dr. Banks will prepare your teeth for the smile makeover. If you are having porcelain veneers or dental crowns, Dr. Banks will need to shape the teeth to accommodate the new restorations. Impressions of your teeth will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory where the porcelain veneers or crowns will be made. Dr. Banks will apply temporary restorations to your teeth to protect your teeth while the final restorations are being made.
When the final restoration arrives at our office from the laboratory, we will schedule your final appointment. Dr. Banks will place the restorations on your teeth. Follow up visits to see Dr. Banks will ensure that the results of your smile makeover are long lasting.
