Smile makeover patients at our practice love their new smiles and find themselves smiling a lot more after treatment. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. A smile makeover is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that will provide you with a beautiful smile. If you have a beautiful smile, natural-looking smile, you will smile more, project self-confidence, be more positive in all aspects of life. Whatever concerns you have about the size, shape, placement, or colour of your teeth, smile makeovers can fix almost any problem you present: gaps, chips, stains, discolouration, missing teeth, crooked teeth, short teeth, oversized teeth, slanting teeth, misaligned teeth, tooth grinding, “gummy” smiles, receding gums, unnatural or aging dental work, and old silver fillings can all be corrected with our state-of-the-art, expert procedures.Patients come to our office from far distances to take advantage of the experience and artistic expertise offered by both dentists in our practice. The first step in a smile makeover is the examination appointment.
The procedure starts with an initial consultation. Here we listen to the patient describe exactly what they desire, so that we can create a plan to meet those specific desires. Because each patient is different, we asses several factors which impact the outcome of the smile, including:
1. Face shape
– certain tooth shapes complement different face shapes
2. Tooth colour
– lighter teeth imply youth, but too white looks artificial
3. Tooth size
– older teeth tend to be shorter from wear
We use a variety of diagnostic aids to accomplish the ultimate smile makeover. We take series digital photographs of your smile, digital x-rays, models of your teeth (dental mock-up) and analyse your bite so that we can communicate clearly with our dental laboratory to create the desired smile. This allows you and the Dentist to decide together what would be the most beautiful, natural-looking smile achievable.
Diagnostic Wax-up created in our lab to introduce your new smile in advance before we start any procedure in your mouth. We can temporarily change the shape, length and spacing of teeth. You will be able to see right in our office how an enhancement of smile affects the overall appearance of your face. A smile makeover will improve the look of your smile, as well as restore any dental problems that you have, adjust your bite, and reset the muscles in your jaw so that you will look good and feel great.
