What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover can improve the overall appearance of your teeth through one or a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures. The goal is to enhance the look and function of your teeth so you can have a healthier smile. To provide you with the best results, our dentists will take a range of factors into consideration such as your skin tone, lip shape, tooth shape and proportions, and your facial appearance.
Depending on your evaluation, our dentists may recommend one or a number of the following cosmetic procedures:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental veneers
- Dental implants
- Composite bonding
Reasons to get a Smile Makeover:
If you suffer from stained or dull teeth and would like to have a brighter smile, our restorative treatments can help! Natural, teeth-coloured composite restorations and teeth whitening treatments can be used to improve the colour of your teeth. Our dentists will find the right balance between your natural colour and a whiter shade to enhance your smile.
Those with crooked or misaligned teeth can also benefit greatly. Gaps and overlapping teeth can be straightened and properly aligned with Invisalign or with veneers and implants.
A missing tooth can greatly affect the look of your smile. Plus, it can impact your bite which can lead to tooth decay and jaw related issues. We can replace any missing teeth with bridges, dentures, or even dental implants to improve the overall appearance of your smile.
Chipped and Cracked Teeth
Any teeth that are chipped, cracked, or uneven can be bonded and re-contoured.
Benefits of a Smile Makeover
Using our advanced restorative treatments, you can get the smile that you’ve always dreamed of. If you had to avoid eating certain foods in the past due to your teeth, you can eliminate that problem and start to enjoy them once again. And with straighter, whiter smile, you can feel much more confident when meeting new people, applying for jobs and making that good first impression with others.
But beyond the benefit to your appearance, these treatments also work to boost the overall health of your teeth and gums as well. Remember, your overall health is closely linked to the condition of your oral health. By having an overhaul of your smile, it can reduce the likelihood of developing issues like gum disease, which can impact your cardiovascular health, among other things.
How Does it Work?
To create a customized plan for your makeover, your dentist will conduct a full evaluation of your oral cavity including your teeth, bite, and gums to recommend specific cosmetic procedures. Your dentist will likely use dental imaging software, before and after photos, wax mockups, as well as impressions and models to help you visualize what you can expect to see before you go ahead with the procedure. If your evaluation reveals any underlying health issues like periodontitis, your dentist will first treat the problem before proceeding.
Then they will attempt to group the procedures together to minimize the number of office visits to reduce the overall cost and provide you with more consistent results.
How to Maintain Your Smile
Cosmetic dentistry procedures require proper oral care to maintain the look and condition over time. So once finished, your dentist may recommend follow up visits to examine the work and determine if any further enhancements or replacements are required. For example, teeth whitening may need to be repeated in a series of sessions to maintain the preferred colour. Bonding can also stain over time and may require some followup work.
Our dentists will also outline the best care practices to maintain your new smile for many years down the road. They will even discuss what foods and drinks to avoid along with overall diet recommendations to help you to maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. It’s important to follow your dentist’s instructions and keep all regular cleaning appointments as directed.
You don’t have to feel embarrassed about having stained, misaligned, or chipped teeth. A smile makeover is the perfect way to refresh your look and improve the overall function and health of your teeth. The benefits are substantial!
