Think of the last time you posed for a snap/selfie on your smart phone? Did you flash your pearly whites or did you hide your teeth? If you are one who has been hiding your smile then read on to know how you can achieve a STUNNING SMILE MAKEOVER.
A smile makeover is the process of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as:
The goal of a smile makeover is to improve your smile by taking into consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, teeth (colour, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and lips to develop your ideal smile.
Smile makeovers are customized according to your unique considerations and you will discuss with us what you want your smile to look like as well the things that you currently don't like about your smile. Discussing these aspects will give your dentist a clear idea of what they can do to improve including some of the following:
Tooth Color: If you suffer from discolored teeth as a result of aging, your food or drink diet, or various other yellowing factors, a smile makeover can restore your teeth's appearance. Teeth whitening can improve the colour of stained teeth or if more specialized treatments are needed you may be a candidate for porcelain veneers.
Alignment: Teeth that are misaligned can be straightened and properly aligned through orthodontics like Invisalign or may be improved with veneers.
Spacing: Teeth that have gaps between them may be aligned properly through a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions like Invisalign or veneers.
Missing Teeth: Missing teeth are unsightly hindrances that affect the appearance of your smile. They can be replaced with dental implants or bridges.
Chipped, Cracked, or Uneven Teeth: Teeth that are chipped, cracked, or uneven can be cosmetically bonded with veneers to improve appearance.
Tooth Length: The effects of aging and every day wear and tear can detract from a youthful appearance. A smile makeover treatment for shorter teeth may include the reshaping and lengthening of the teeth with composite bonding or porcelain veneers.
Tooth Proportions: A balanced smile gives the appearance of proper proportion and good oral health. Your dentist will work with you to design a treatment plan that enhances your teeth's esthetics and gives you a beautifully balanced smile line.
The cost of a smile makeover will vary depending on the type of treatment necessary to fulfil your goals. As they are custom to each individual recipient, your cosmetic dentist can give you an idea of what it may cost after performing an extensive evaluation of your smile.
