What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover uses different cosmetic dental procedures in order for you to achieve the look you want. Whether your teeth are chipped, cracked, crooked, chipped, discolored, misaligned, or missing, a smile makeover can fix it.
Through procedures like the following, you can have the smile of your dreams in just a few dentist visits:
- Tooth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
- Porcelain dental crowns
- A smile makeover takes into consideration your facial features, hair color, jawline, and skin tone to create a look that is both aesthetically pleasing and natural looking.
How long will my smile makeover take?
Most aesthetic dental procedures, from a simple whitening treatment to a full smile makeover, take anywhere from one to three visits. Because each case is different, the length of time it will take to complete your smile makeover will depend on the complexity of your smile and your specific dental goals.
For example, a smile makeover that may take only one or two appointments may consist of tooth whitening and dental bonding. A more involved smile makeover may incorporate procedures such as porcelain veneers, dental implants, and crowns.
What kind of problems can a smile makeover correct?
A smile makeover can correct virtually any dental imperfection, such as teeth that are:
- Chipped or cracked
- Unevenly spaced or misshaped
- Discolored or stained
- Crooked or shifted teeth
- Full of metal fillings
- Misaligned due to a bad bite
How long will my smile makeover last?
Cosmetic dental work will not last forever. Teeth whitening procedures will eventually fade, and veneers may chip or break off years down the road, requiring “touch ups” from time to time. On average, porcelain veneers and dental crowns last between 10 and 15 years. Yet with advances in technology and the continual improvement in the quality of cosmetic dental materials, your restorations could last longer with the proper care.
The best way to prolong the life of your smile is by practicing good oral hygiene like regular brushing and flossing.
What are the benefits of a smile makeover?
When you approach cosmetic dentistry under one unified plan, you achieve your cosmetic dental goals more quickly, efficiently, and economically than if you addressed each flaw individually. With a smile makeover, you can map out your progress from the beginning and combine procedures to achieve your desired smile in a short amount of time.
A smile makeover will leave you with the smile of your dreams. You will walk away with the structure, function, strength, and brightness that you decide on during your consultation.
