A smile makeover is a group of treatments designed to improve the appearance and function of one’s smile.
An individual’s smile can say a lot about a person. If you are unhappy with the appearance or function of your teeth, you will know that it can have an impact on many aspects of your life. Smile makeovers are often an ideal treatment for those who would like to address multiple dental issues. Smile makeovers include several treatments that are customized to suit one’s individual needs. The package may include a combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures, depending on your concerns and aesthetic goals.
Read on to find out more about what a smile makeover involves, and what kinds of issues the treatment can address…
What is included in a smile makeover?
A smile makeover can be completely tailored to suit one’s needs, but some of the most common procedures included in the treatment are:
Teeth whitening treatments help to brighten the shade of the teeth and achieve a natural and healthy-looking result. In fact, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available thanks to its ability to improve one’s overall appearance so considerably.
Teeth whitening involves the use of bleaching agent, which is applied to the teeth and activated by a light source. During the process, the appearance of stains is reduced, and the overall color of the teeth is made whiter and brighter.
Dental implant surgery is a restorative dental treatment that is often recommended in the case of missing teeth. These restorations can go a long way in improving oral function, as well as the aesthetic of one’s smile.
Dental implants are considered a permanent solution to tooth loss, and they provide excellent stability. During the treatment process, a tiny biocompatible titanium screw will be inserted into the jawbone, which will fuse with the bone as it heals. A dental crown is then placed over the implant to achieve a natural-looking appearance and restore one’s ability to eat and speak.
Dental crowns are often recommended when it is necessary to repair the structure and function of a damaged tooth. They are often an effective treatment for the repair of decayed, injured or aesthetically displeasing teeth.
Dental crowns are designed to cover the entire tooth. Made from durable materials, a crown strengthens and protects the affected tooth, while also improving its appearance. Crowns can be customized to match the color and shape of the surrounding teeth and can go a long way in recreating a beautiful smile.
Dental veneers are tooth-colored porcelain shells that are designed to cover the front surface of the teeth to conceal a range of cosmetic imperfections. They are one of the most popular options in a smile makeover package as they can cover up many issues — from chips and misalignment, to stains and evenly-shaped teeth.
The treatment is minimally invasive, and, thanks to modern dental techniques, the natural tooth shape and structure can be preserved. Dental veneers are resistant to chipping and stains and provide a long-term solution to cosmetically flawed teeth.
