Thinking about getting a smile makeover? A smile makeover might be what you need if you are not pleased with the way your smile looks. Each person gets their unique customized smile makeover, but the goal is always to address any cosmetic issues with the patient’s smile. A smile makeover combines many of the treatments used in cosmetic dentistry to craft the smile of your dreams.
What goes on during a smile makeover
The process of getting a smile makeover typically starts with a consultation with a cosmetic dentist. During this appointment, the dentist will go over the patient’s concerns about the appearance of their teeth. The dentist will evaluate the patient to determine what their main issues are and the best ways to go about correcting them. Diagnostic tests like x-rays and digital imaging might be used during the evaluation.
The dentist will then proceed to create the patient’s smile makeover treatment plan. The patient will have to make a few choices during this phase as there might be multiple ways to fix a particular problem. For example, a chipped tooth can be repaired with composite bonding or veneers. The former would be the more economical solution, while the latter provides longer-lasting results.
Treatments the dentist might recommend as part of a patient’s smile makeover treatment plan include:
This involves using bleaching agents to restore the color of a patient’s teeth or to make them appear whiter than they have ever been. A single whitening session performed by a dentist can improve the whiteness of a patient’s teeth by up to eight shades. It is a significantly more effective option than over-the-counter alternatives.
Dentists can use composite resin to fix cosmetic issues like chipped, broken or deformed teeth. Bonding can also be used to fix badly-stained and discolored teeth. It is a non-invasive procedure that produces instant results. It typically takes about 45 minutes to restore a tooth with composite bonding.
These thin tooth-shaped shells are used to hide imperfections on the front of teeth surfaces. Veneers can be used to fix chipped, broken, short, crooked or deformed teeth. These dental cosmetics can also be used to fix stained teeth and spaces between teeth.
These are arguably the most versatile oral cosmetics used by dentists. Also known as dental caps, they cover the entire visible part of a tooth hiding any flaws on it and protecting it from acids, bacteria and saliva in the mouth.
This procedure is used to fix minor cosmetic issues such as chips. The dentist reshapes the tooth by filing it down, removing cosmetic issues caused by small chips.
