A smile makeover is the process of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as:
- Dental veneers
- Composite bonding
- Tooth implants
- Teeth whitening
There are times the alignment of the teeth is off, which can cause a host of issues including grinding/bruxing, TMJ pain, and chronic chipping of
teeth. In these cases, orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign® can straighten the teeth, improving your occlusion (your bite), and providing a healthy appearance. This can be an important step in a smile makeover because teeth in the proper alignment have the best long-term results when they are improved aesthetically. Teeth whitening procedures can remove stains and brighten your teeth for a vibrant, polished aesthetic. Teeth whitening can be a great tool in preparation for final restorations when preparing the smile for the final cosmetic restorations. Once the teeth are the shade that you desire, porcelain veneers can be used to cover and conceal small tooth imperfections such as cracks, chips, or gaps.
Our dentists take into account the shape of your face and the dimensions of your teeth when designing your smile makeover to make sure the results complement the overall harmony of your facial features. Some of the components taken into consideration include your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth (color, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and lips. Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons and customized according to your unique considerations. When combined, these procedures can rejuvenate your smile with long-lasting, brilliant results. The best smile makeovers combine beautiful aesthetics with healthy function, which lay the foundation for the longest-lasting results.
