What can be improved with a smile makeover?

While preparing to give you a smile makeover, our dental experts will take into consideration your facial appearance, complexion, the color of your hair, your lips, gum tissue, as well as the color and shape of your teeth.

Our specialized dentists will consult you regarding your wants and needs from the procedure and will work on creating the best custom-made smile makeover treatment for you. The treatment is a mixture of cosmetic and restorative procedures, ensuring that you not only have a beautiful and radiant smile but also highly improved oral health in the long run.

Here are some of the most common dental issues that can be fixed with a smile makeover:

Tooth discoloration: People suffering from yellowing or dull teeth often opt for teeth whitening procedures. Dark and discolored teeth make the smile look aged and less attractive. When the teeth are bright and radiant, you will look more youthful and healthier. There are several teeth whitening procedures available in the dental world, including porcelain veneers, crowns, dental implants, and more.

Our cosmetic dentists are skilled at shade matching and finding the right tooth color that will compliment your appearance and also make your teeth look naturally beautiful.

Missing teeth: Missing teeth can not only make the smile look incomplete but can also affect the bite and increase the chances for tooth decay in the future. Fixing missing teeth is necessary for the betterment of our oral health and also to improve the appearance of the smile. Our dentists can fix the issue of missing teeth with the help of dental implants, bridges, or partial dentures, giving you a full and attractive smile.

Teeth alignment: People who have crooked, overlapping or gapped teeth are often conscious of their smile, making them feel less confident in their day-to-day lives. With a smile makeover, these issues can be sorted out easily. Our expert dentists will take on the right orthodontics procedures that will help you straighten out your smile.

Facial harmony: If you have suffered from a minor injury that left you with a chipped or cracked tooth, you may find that it is not only affecting the look of your smile but also giving you much pain. Uneven teeth can be bonded using the right cosmetic procedures, and a gummy smile can also be re-contoured to bring back facial harmony. An aging face can also be given a rejuvenated appearance with the right cosmetic dentistry procedures, as suggested by our dental experts.

What should one keep in mind regarding a smile makeover?

When planning a smile makeover, one usually focuses on improving the appearance of the visible part of the smile – which is, the upper and lower section on display when you smile. Besides this, there are several other aesthetic components that come into the picture when opting for a smile makeover.

Length of the tooth: In the world of dentistry, long teeth are known to be the cosmetic ideal. When we age, the wear and tear associated with daily life can make our teeth shorter over time. Sometimes, a gummy smile can also make the teeth look very short. Longer teeth can make us look more youthful. Our dental experts can give you the appearance of longer teeth by reshaping and lengthening the two front central teeth with the help of a composite bonding procedure or porcelain veneers.

A gummy smile can also be fixed by using certain laser procedures to modify the gum line, making your teeth the focal point of your smile. The length of the teeth plays an important role in the overall facial appearance of a person. If a patient has a rounded face, our dental experts may suggest teeth lengthening in order to provide the face with a slimming effect.

Smile Line: Our dental specialists will use your smile line as a reference to assess the length of your new teeth. The smile line is an imaginary line across the mouth that follows the edges of the upper teeth and is usually in sync with the curve of the lower lip when you smile. This consideration is important to improve the overall symmetry of your smile.

Proportional teeth: In the dental world, an ideal smile would be one in which the two central front teeth are more dominant to the other teeth, in terms of length and width. Our dentists will identify a tooth proportion that is right for your smile and will balance out the proportion of the other teeth so that the smile line looks balanced.

A smile makeover is a procedure that can make a person feel extremely confident and secure in their smile. Instead of opting for a number of different procedures, you can choose the smile makeover package that can fix all the dental problems you may have.
