Although not as sexy as cosmetic dental work, a functional makeover can be the most life-changing. A wide array of dental procedures can be used to make the changes including Invisalign, crowns and bridges, bonding, night guards, and implants.
A functional makeover should:
- Remove diseased areas in a tooth or in the mouth including dental decay, fractured teeth or damaged restorations
- correct tooth position by eliminating overlapping or crowded teeth and closing unwanted spaces
- restore missing teeth
- optimize the bite (occlusion)
- eliminate harmful habits
