Smile Makeover

Do you have several issues that keep your teeth and smile from looking their best? Problems like chipped teeth, stains and discoloration, and gaps can really take a toll on your confident smile. Getting a smile makeover can transform the appearance of your teeth and help restore your self-confidence.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is not actually a single procedure. Instead, it is a basket of procedures that are put together by you and your dentist to address the specific issues that you are having with your teeth and smile.

Some issues that a smile makeover can correct include: 

  • Teeth discoloration
  • Missing teeth
  • Alignment and spacing
  • Gaps in your smile
  • Teeth length and proportions

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a common element included in many smile makeovers. It helps in repairing minor imperfections like chips, cracks and gaps. It is also helpful for correcting teeth discoloration, although it is not always a permanent treatment for stains. For that, consider porcelain veneers.

Your dentist performs composite bonding by applying a composite resin onto the surfaces of your teeth, matching their color. The entire procedure is fast and painless. Your dentist applies the composite in a series of layers and uses a special light to harden the material. They will shape it into its final form and polish the composite to a smooth finish.

Porcelain Veneers

If you are getting porcelain veneers, your dentist will bond a thin shell of porcelain onto treated teeth to improve their appearance. Porcelain is highly stain-resistant and durable.

Getting porcelain veneers requires two dental appointments. At your first appointment, your dentist will remove a small amount of your tooth enamel to make room for your new veneers, which will be prepared in a dental lab. Once the dental lab has prepared your new porcelain veneers, you will return to have them permanently bonded to your teeth.

Dental Implants

No smile makeover would be complete without addressing any missing teeth that you may have. In addition to causing a gap in your smile, missing teeth can affect your bite, cause neighboring teeth to shift into the gap in your smile, and cause underlying bone to deteriorate, potentially affecting your facial appearance over time.

If you are getting dental implants as part of your smile makeover, your dentist would implant a metal rod into your jawbone, which will fuse with it over time. A few months later, you would return to have a dental crown placed to provide a chewing surface and aesthetic replacement for your missing tooth.
