A smile makeover takes into consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, teeth (positioning, colour, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and your lips to develop your ideal smile. Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons and customised according to your unique considerations.
Consideration for a Smile MakeOver
What is it that you like or dislike about your smile or your teeth? Some aspects of your smile that your cosmetic dentist will review with you and that could be improved with a smile makeover include the following:
Amalgam dental fillings can be replaced with natural, tooth-coloured composite restorations, while teeth whitening can improve the colour of stained or dulled teeth. Tooth colour and shading are important considerations during the evaluation and preparation of various procedures, including porcelain veneers, metal-free crowns, bridges, composite bonding and dental implants.
Alignment and spacing
Teeth that are worn, crooked, overlapping or have gaps between them can be straightened and aligned when necessary through either orthodontic treatments or other cosmetic dental solutions, such as Zirconium-Ceramic crowns and E.max veneers.
Harmony and balance
Uneven, chipped and cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded for an improved appearance and a gummy smile can be re-contoured to help improve the overall look of the smile.
One or more missing teeth can negatively affect the appearance of your smile – as well as affect your bite and increase your risk for tooth decay – making replacement an integral part of oral health and facial aesthetics. Missing teeth can be permanently replaced by dental implants or bridges.
The life of your Smile MakeOver
Cosmetic dental procedures require regular oral hygiene care and may require maintenance over time. For example, teeth whitening must be repeated occasionally, in order to maintain brightness. Porcelain veneers may chip or break off and may need replacement. Permanent composite bonding may eventually stain and require enhancement or replacement. Dental crowns typically require replacement after 10 to 15 years. Gummy smile improvements may also require enhancement over time.
The lab technician and the materials chosen by your dentist also have an impact on the longevity of your smile makeover. To achieve the best results, we take special care in selecting the best options for you.
