A smile makeover can transform less-than-perfect dentition into a dazzling Hollywood smile. Cosmetic and restorative dentistry help to improve the appearance of an individual’s smile and increase their confidence. Unlike full mouth reconstructions, a smile makeover is something that an individual wants, as opposed to needs. Even people with good oral hygiene and structurally sound teeth might be unhappy with certain elements of their smile, therefore they opt for a smile makeover.
A smile makeover involves more than just the teeth. The facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, gum tissue and lips are all taken into consideration before a dentist is able to perform a smile makeover. People who feel self-conscious about the way their teeth or gums appear, often smile with their hands in front of their face and seldom smile in public. Fortunately, with the advent of modern technology, cosmetic dentists are now able to offer patients a customized solution to creating a stunning smile that meets the patient’s expectations.
By utilizing new technology such as smile selection guides, temporization techniques and cosmetic imaging, cosmetic dentists are able to improve various problem areas that distract from a perfect smile. These problems include: discoloration of the teeth; cracked or chipped teeth; eroded, misshapen, or disproportionately sized teeth; gaps between teeth; slightly crooked teeth; “gummy” smiles; an uneven gum line; existing dental conditions such as silver or amalgam dental fillings.
A cosmetic dentist will work closely with you to ensure that an effective treatment plan is designed in order to achieve the best possible results from your smile makeover. It is important that you communicate your expectations with your dentist in order to achieve the smile that you want.
