The smile consultation

It happens right here in Dr. Villalon's office in Pueblo, CO. During the appointment, you and your dentist will sit down together to discuss the changes you'd like to see. They may include:

  • Brightening tooth color and shine (one of the most sought-after smile improvements, according to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry)
  • Repair of small defects (chips, cracks, gaps, craze lines)
  • Repair of large defects (tooth fractures from oral trauma, old fillings, intrinsic stains)
  • Correcting dental bite and alignment
  • Replacing missing teeth

Dr. Villalon will examine your teeth and gums, perform an X-ray screening, take photos, and offer you options to change your smile for the better. Your treatment plan may be as simple as an in-office whitening treatment or as complex as a complete smile makeover. The choices are yours to make according to your budget and preferences.

These are some of the treatments that your dentist uses to address smile defects:
