Enhancing your smile can dramatically rejuvenate your entire appearance. Most people don’t think of a smile makeover as being an alternative to plastic surgery when in fact these cosmetic dental treatments can have a profound impact on the signs of aging and on your overall appearance in general.
What procedures are used in Smile Makeover?
There are many cosmetic dentistry procedures that we can use including teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental crowns, and dental implants, among others. Smile Design takes into account more than just your teeth. We take a look at the esthetics of your entire face and design a smile that brings out the best You.
As the name suggests a smile makeover is a new smile that has been designed to look better in many ways. It may align crowded teeth, close gaps, reduce protrusion, whiten, reduce a gummy smile, widen a narrow smile, change the length or shape of teeth, replace missing teeth or any combination of the above. A smile makeover usually involves at least the top eight or ten teeth and sometimes the lower eight or ten teeth too. The most frequent treatments used in a smile makeover are multiple porcelain veneers because they are the most conservative restoration and because they are strong and highly aesthetic.
However, porcelain crowns, bridges, implants and even implant supported dentures can also be part of a smile makeover depending on the case. Smile makeovers can also involve rapid orthodontics using Inman aligners to either prealign teeth prior to multiple porcelain veneers or to align minor crowding of the lower teeth when only the upper teeth are to be veneered. If upper teeth only are being treated with veneers then lower teeth are usually at least whitened.
Don’t put off having the smile that makes you happy.
