A stunning smile is universally appealing; makeovers at your Napier dentist’s office are one of a kind

Dr. Sundar’s pursuit of the perfect smile took him around the globe, to the renowned Kois Center® for advanced dentistry in Seattle, Washington, USA. Now you can benefit from this world-class training and skill right here in Napier! The Dentiq team welcomes the opportunity to elevate your confidence and overall well being with multi-faceted smile makeovers, precisely and safely designed from our Greenmeadows office.

Make over your smile… and so much more!

Numerous surveys through the decades have supported the power of an attractive smile. Generally, a pleasing smile can make its “wearer” appear more trustworthy, successful, intelligent, and approachable. And researchers have found that even the act of “faking” a smile can boost the brain’s “feel good” chemicals, dopamine, and serotonin. So, these findings are even more reason to wear yours proudly!

One-of-a-kind smile makeovers

While this central feature of your face is universally coveted, no two smile makeovers are alike. We at Dentiq start the process by evaluating your teeth, gums, and associated oral structures. We strive for beautiful balance. A “balanced” smile is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also an imbalance in one area can present challenges to oral function and health. For instance, worn-down teeth and restorations, and misalignment can place uneven stress on the teeth and interconnected joints and muscles. This situation gives rise to chronic pain and other problems, such as reduced mobility, inefficient chewing, and poor digestion.

Be prepared to discuss what you dislike about your smile, as well as what you like. As they say, a picture is worth 1,000 words. We encourage you to save photos of smiles that you like, and, during your consultation, we can go over those pictures with you. Depending on what we find during your exam, as well as your goals, Dr. Sundar may recommend cosmetic services such as:

  • Professional in-office whitening – One of the fastest and easiest ways to dramatically transform your appearance. We can whiten your teeth, safely and predictably, by several shades in a single visit.
  • Professional home whitening – You can get the same dramatic results, gradually, from the comfort and convenience of home. We prescribe whitening trays that are made to fit your mouth. So, they comfortably and evenly deliver powerful whitening gel to your teeth when worn as directed.
  • Veneers – Celebrity smiles are often “made,” not “born” with these thin layers of porcelain. Prepared and applied expertly by Dr. Sundar, veneers look and feel natural, not “fake,” protruding, or overly white. They can be used to disguise many common imperfections, from modest chips or cracks, to gaps between the teeth.

Many of our restorative treatments blend beauty and functionality. Should you have more extensive spacing or misalignment issues, ClearCorrect™ presents a discreet (and removable) alternative to traditional metal braces. Also, if you have damage that threatens the structure of your teeth, Dr. Sundar will recommend tooth-colored fillings, inlays, onlays (partial crowns), or full-coverage ceramic crowns that are indistinguishable in appearance from natural and healthy teeth. Tooth replacement with dental implants also mimic the design of natural teeth for the optimal aesthetics, function, and durability. We can even prepare, make, and place many stunning restorations while you wait with onsite computer-aided technology.
