The Smile Makeover is a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan that can include all the different cosmetic treatment options available to achieve the smile you deserve. Dental treatment services such as simple teeth whitening and replacing old dark silver filling with white versions can give a mini smile makeover. Leading onto more complex treatment options such as composite bonding or veneers, porcelain veneers, cosmetic clear invisible braces and dental implants can all be combined into a smile makeover design plan, to achieve that beautiful confident perfect smile.
It is important that you have excellent oral health prior to starting down the road of cosmetic smile makeover dentistry or that it is part of the overall treatment plan during the planning process. As the long term success of all dentistry (not just cosmetic smile makeovers), is crucially dependent on a good foundation of health and maintenance.
Generally they are the go to dental treatment option for smile makeovers especially for the front teeth, though you can go around to the side premolar teeth as well for a complete smile makeover. Porcelain veneers can be used to completely change the whole shape/style and profile of the natural teeth to achieve your desired smile makeover outcome. To achieve the best results this treatment is staged over a number of visits to enable the smile makeover to be designed and simulated for review- in the past we used to do this with models and wax work to alter the tooth on models, but now your impressions are scanned and digital smile makeover simulation work is performed to enable you to review the planned changes before any work is even carried out. This therefore means no surprises in how things will look when everything is completed and fitted. This smile makoever plan is then transferred into the mouth via the use of temporary veneers to enable you to personally review your prospective new teeth before the final ceramic work is made. This ensures we can review the smile makeover together, and ensure how it looks on the digital design works with your face and features against the changes in length and shapes and especially the style of tips of the teeth which make such a difference to the overall look. These provisional veneers can be altered and shaped to suit until you are happy, ensuring your smile makeover fits your smile perfectly.
How your teeth look when your smile makeover is complete is up to you- do not be worried that you will end up with a one size fits all shaped and coloured teeth. Each smile makeover is made bespokely to fit in with your face, especially the lengths and tooth proportions to work with your lip position and form. This is a crucial aspect; and depending on your age and amount of wear and tear on the teeth, will determine whether the teeth can be simply built up or whether the other aspects of cosmetic dentistry such as clear braces or gum contouring are required to ensure symmetry in your final smile makeover.
The modern media driven smile makeover image with footballers and celebrities is for very flat square white porcelain veneer shaped teeth with very little nature and variation. That is simply one style and if this is what you want then we can make this design in the planning stage. But very often what you see and think you would like and what it actually looks like when you are reviewing your temporary teeth is very different, as it lacks any natural variation. Our personal preference at Azure Dental practice, is for the aesthetic style smile makeover with teeth a more natural shape and curvature which is beautifully designed to fit into the each person’s face shape and their own natural tooth style.
Similarly colour wise everyone is different and there is no right or wrong when undertaking a smile makeover, just different levels of shading from dark to white, this can also be built into the teeth to ensure a more natural blend and look compared to the one single shade flat white look of the extreme media look in fashion today.
If you are considering changing your smile whether it be something simple such as a single tooth that needs some care and attention, or old dark silver fillings that need an upgrade, or worn damaged discoloured teeth that require a more intensive smile makeover then we are here to help.
