Smile Makeover

If you are uncomfortable about smiling or try and avoid doing so, then rest assured, you are not alone. There are a great many people who are embarrassed by their smile which is mainly due to the state of their teeth. If you have missing, crooked or discoloured teeth then these are likely to be the cause of your

Having your photograph taken can be something of an ordeal for many people who prefer to remain tight lipped rather than expose their teeth.

If you are in this position and want to be able to smile again, and with confidence then there is an answer: a smile makeover.

What is a ‘smile makeover?’, ‘How much will it cost?’ and ‘How long will it take?’ These are just a few of the many questions asked about this procedure.

What is a ‘smile makeover?’

This is a cosmetic dentistry process which uses a range of techniques to improve a patient’s smile. It is considered to be the ‘gold standard’ in cosmetic dentistry.

This process includes the following procedures:

  • Porcelain veneers or Invisalign braces
  • Dental implants, bridge or a denture
  • Teeth whitening
  • Composite bonding
  • Laser gum contouring
  • Botox or a dermal filler
  • The replacement of metal fillings with natural, ‘white’ looking restorations.

A smile makeover is seen as a good way of treating teeth that are stained or uneven. Teeth can become stained or discoloured over the years, often as a result of drinking large amounts of tea and coffee.

If you smoke then this can cause the teeth to take on a ‘yellowed’ appearance.

Misaligned, chipped or missing teeth are another factor. Some people have missing teeth due to an accident or injury and are left with unsightly gaps. Others have teeth that have become worn down or overlap one another.

It may be the case that you show too much of your gums when you smile – called a ‘gummy’ smile or are conscious about your metal fillings.

And for some people, having a ‘celebrity smile’ is all important.

Whatever the reason, a smile makeover can result in an improved smile as well as boosting your confidence and self-esteem.

This is what we call an ‘elective’ process: by that we mean it is something you choose to have done for lifestyle or aesthetic reasons.
