Getting what is called a cosmetic smile makeover can help you change the appearance of your teeth. This procedure aims to correct teeth issues such as chipped teeth, cracked teeth, discoloration, misalignments, gaps, and other minor problems that might be making you feel self-conscious about your smile. In this article, we’ll explain what a smile makeover is, what the procedure entails, and how the process works.
What Is Included In A Smile Makeover?
A dental veneer is a type of ultra-thin shell of tooth-colored material that is cemented to the surface of your skin to correct issues like cracks, chips, teeth discoloration, and misalignments. You can also get veneers to correct the length or thickness of your teeth. Veneers are either made of porcelain or composite resin material. It can be applied to just one tooth or to several teeth at the same time depending on what you want.
Teeth whitening is a quick and easy fix for the discoloration caused by smoking, beverages like coffee, wine, soda, and other factors. While there are many home materials that you can purchase over the counter and use on your own to get a whiter smile, getting an in-clinic whitening treatment as part of your smile makeover is a more effective approach.
At our dental clinic, professional dentists will use a special gel to whiten your teeth by several shades so you can feel a lot more confident about your smile. It is the simplest and least invasive part of your smile makeover and is typically completed within 60 to 90 minutes.
Dental implants for missing teeth
A dental implant is a type of artificial tooth added to replace a missing tooth. This procedure is considered a type of prosthetic also it is also a cosmetic procedure. People who have missing teeth often feel self-conscious about their smile and may require dental implants as a part of their smile makeover. Getting an implant as replacement tooth, can also help correct biting irregularities caused by tooth loss and help a patient eat better. Missing teeth can be replaced through the use of partial dentures too.
Traditional braces made of metallic materials used to be the go-to solution for correcting alignment problems. However, clear braces or invisible aligners such as Invisalign are becoming a more preferred solution. They’re custom-made for your teeth and are more convenient to use.
