Are you unhappy with your smile? Do you want to change your smile to improve the colour, shape or length of your teeth? Or change the appearance of your gums or lips to give your overall smile a more appealing look?
A recent survey revealed that:
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a combination of one or more cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the appearance of the smile. The procedure could be bonding, teeth whitening, tooth-coloured fillings, veneers, dental crowns, implants or bridges. A smile makeover involves one or more cosmetic, dental or facial rejuvenation procedures to improve the aesthetics of your smile. A smile makeover to one person could mean something completely different to another, and it is a very individual choice. For example, some people want the perfectly white Hollywood smile makeover, or the celebrity smile with pearly white porcelain veneers. Other people may just want a simple improvement, such as the replacement of amalgam fillings with composite and teeth whitening. In essence it’s discussing what you are unhappy about with your smile and finding the right solution for you to make it look better and you happier.
How can a smile makeover improve my smile?
Whatever the reasons for your dissatisfaction with your smile, there are many different ways in which you can improve your smile using modern cosmetic dentistry:
Crooked teeth can be straightened with Invisalign braces or Six Month Smiles or conventional orthodontics. In certain cases they can also be covered with porcelain veneers for a faster solution, often referred to as “instant orthodontics”. In this situation, the main disadvantage is that your teeth need to be prepared for veneers. Another option is composite bonding.
Chipped, broken teeth can be repaired – the treatment will depend on the extent of damage, but the options include cosmetic bonding (adding to the teeth), porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns.
Missing teeth can be replaced – gaps between your teeth can cause functional problems as well as being unsightly. Often, a smile makeover involves the replacement of existing restorations or gaps between teeth. Solutions include dental implants, a dental bridge or a denture.
Gaps between your teeth can be closed to give your smile a more even look. This can be achieved instantly with porcelain veneers. Orthodontics can also be used to move the teeth and close the gaps between them. Invisalign invisible braces, the Inman aligner, Damon braces, lingual braces and fixed orthodontics are just a few options for moving your teeth to close gaps.
If you have a gummy smile, this can easily be remedied by surgical or laser gum contouring.
If you are not satisfied with the colour of your teeth, or if you have badly stained teeth, they can be treated with prophyflex cleaning or professional teeth whitening.
If you have deep smile lines, frown lines or lips that have lost their fullness, these can all be improved using a combination of Botox and dermal filler treatments.
The end result of a smile makeover for many people is a smile to be proud of, one that is straight, white and perfect.
Individuals looking for a complete smile makeover due to issues with tooth alignment or tooth wear or tooth discolouration could qualify to receive Smile Design treatment by asking one of our qualified dentitsts.
This process ensures that patients will receive a custom-made smile that is specifically designed to suit their needs with the best possible cosmetic results and is achieved through using technological advancements.
Communication is the key to providing the ideal solution for any patients looking for a smile makeover, therefore it is vital to ensure individuals seek a smile consultation appointment with their practitioner prior to treatment.

A number of people could wish to transform the appearance of their teeth after experiencing oral health problems, while a bright, white Hollywood smile could allow many individuals enjoy higher self-esteem as a result of the life-changing smile makeover treatment.
