Enhancing your smile can change your whole appearance dramatically.
As the name suggests, a smile makeover is designed to make your smile even more beautiful, giving your face and teeth an improved aesthetic.
There are many different procedures your dentist might recommend as part of a smile makeover. These could include:
- Applying porcelain veneers
- Re-aligning crooked teeth
- Closing gaps between teeth
- Reducing the projection of teeth
- Whitening discoloured teeth
- Fixing a gummy smile
- Broadening an over-crowded smile
- Modifying the length or contour of teeth
- Replacing missing teeth
Smile makeover considerations
If you choose to undergo a smile makeover, your dentist will consider many different factors before advising you on the most effective treatments to ensure it suits your face and provides a natural-looking result. We also understand that every patient’s oral health needs are different, so we always create customised treatment plans to best suit your individual needs, both in terms of aesthetics and budget.
Discoloured and dull teeth can make you appear older than you actually are. If you choose to brighten your smile with a whitening treatment, it is really important to ensure that you take a few factors into consideration to ensure the end results will give you a natural look. While we all want our teeth to be glistening white in colour, it should be kept in mind that your facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour and other factors play an important role when determining a perfect colour for your teeth. For example, did you know that it’s best for your teeth to not be whiter than the whites of your eyes? This can make the whites of your eyes appear yellowed. Alternatively, porcelain veneers may be a better option for brightening your smile. Your dentist will work with you to help ensure you get the most natural-looking results possible.
Is your smile missing one or more teeth? This one isn’t just an aesthetic consideration – in fact, missing teeth can cause your jaw to erode away and can change the entire structure of your face in time. Sound scary? It is and can cost you more in the long run. Luckily modern dentistry can address this concern through the use of dental implants, which are the next-best thing to your natural teeth and one of our specialities! Implants can not only improve the appearance of your smile but can also help improve your quality of life.
Harmony and balance:
Do you feel that the balance between your teeth and your gums is out? If you suffer from a “gummy smile”, we can expertly re-contour your teeth and gums and restore the harmony and balance to your smile.
It is important to remember and understand that undergoing a smile makeover doesn’t mean you don’t need to take care of your mouth anymore! In fact, maintaining your routine check-ups with your dentist and maintaining proper at-home oral hygiene can help to keep your bright, new smile looking its best for longer.
