Smile makeovers are suitable for everyone who wants to improve their smile. Careful planning and a detailed consultation is required to achieve your desired perfect smile. Each smile makeover is tailored to suit each patient. Treatment may be as simple as teeth whitening and dental bonding or may involve a full makeover of the front teeth using dental veneers or dental crowns. Due to technological advancement smile makeovers can be achieved without damaging healthy teeth.
An consultation is required to give both the dentist and patient an opportunity to talk in a relaxed environment and then decide on what exactly you would like to achieve. A thorough dental examination and dental x-rays are required to assess your options. Once your options are openly discussed we will provide you with a treatment plan outlining the number of visits, costs and time required.
Initial impressions of your teeth can be taken and a highly trained ceramist will produce a wax-up of the desired final result of the smile on a model. From this model we can take a silicone impression to then fit a ‘trial smile’, which can be made in minutes and taken off immediately.
Teeth that require restoring with either crowns/veneers/bridges are prepared and then detailed impressions are recorded. Before you leave we will fit beautiful temporary restorations.
A smile makeover refers to the aesthetic design of your teeth and gums. A smile makeover may involve a combination of different cosmetic dental treatments, including: Orthodontic treatment (braces), crowns and bridges, dental veneers, dental implants, teeth whitening, dental bonding, cosmetic contouring and gum lift.
While one of the main purposes of a smile makeover is to enhance the beauty and appearance of your smile, it is also designed to correct your teeth function and bite.
Before embarking on a Smile Makeover, you can speak to one of our Cosmetic Dentists to learn more about the various treatments and how they can be combined as part of a multi-stage treatment process to beautify your smile.
Utilising minimally invasive and cost-effective methods, our Cosmetic Dentists can advise on the best treatment approach in order to minimise duplication of resources and optimise treatment outcomes within the shortest timeframes.
During the initial consultation, our cosmetic dentist will be assessing your smile in order to provide a detailed treatment plan.
The initial assessment may include taking an impression of your teeth and creating a replica mould that corresponds to the exact shape, size and bite of your teeth. X-rays of your teeth and jaws may also be taken to assess whether there are underlying problems with the structure of the teeth and bones that need to be addressed.
In addition to assessing and analysing the health of your mouth, the dentist will also discuss your treatment options with you, taking note of your individual needs and preferences. After gaining a full picture, the dentist will then draw up a treatment plan.
The treatment plan will detail the types of treatment that are needed and what you can expect for each of the dental appointments – a smile makeover would typically take between 2-3 visits.
There are no hard and fast rules for patient candidacy when it comes to smile makeovers. Generally speaking, anyone who isn’t completely happy with the appearance of their teeth and gums can opt for a Smile Makeover. That said, certain groups of people may require it more than others.
For example, those who are struggling with chronic issues like cavities, tooth loss and discolouration may be considered good candidates. If you do not smile anywhere as often as you would like, chances are, you may be conscious about the way your teeth look: Misaligned, gappy, widely spaced, stained, crooked, misshapen, etc. These are all areas where a smile makeover can help.
Using cutting edge technology and techniques, our cosmetic dentists can completely transform and redesign your smile. In short, if the appearance of your teeth and gums are keeping you from smiling, then a smile makeover may be just the solution for you.
