A smile makeover is a cosmetic dental procedure or a combination of procedures that improve the appearance of your smile. It’s designed to address several dental issues that affect the look of teeth such as discolouration, misalignment, gaps, chips, cracks and even the shape of teeth.
A smile makeover may include several procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, dental bonding, dental implants, orthodontic treatment, or gum contouring. The exact procedures depend on the patient’s unique dental needs and goals.
The first step in a smile makeover is to consult with a cosmetic dentist. During the consultation, the dentist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your goals, and recommend appropriate treatments. The dentist will use digital imaging to show you what your new smile will look like before treatment, this will give you an idea of what to expect.
The procedures involved in a smile makeover aim to create harmony and balance in the mouth for an aesthetically appealing result. The end goal of a smile makeover is to give a patient the confidence to smile more comfortably and the ability to take pride in their appearance.
