Smile makeovers are designed to provide clients with a new smile that improves their overall appearance. This could involve aligning crowded teeth, closing gaps, reducing protrusion, whitening, changing the shape of teeth, widening a narrow smile, or replacing missing teeth. Depending on the exact case, there are a large number of procedures available to choose from.
Dental makeovers can include any number of teeth – from one specific tooth to all eight of the upper and lower teeth. Of the options available, porcelain veneers are one of the most popular, since they provide teeth that look both natural and strong. However, porcelain crowns, bridges and implants are also particularly popular, depending on the exact needs of the client.
Teeth makeovers can also involve what’s known as ‘rapid orthodontics’. This process involves using specific aligners to pre-align teeth for porcelain veneer use, or to align minor crowding issues in the lower teeth.
If you’re feeling a little lost, don’t worry – your dentist or orthodontist will talk you through all the options available. They will also take photos and impressions of your teeth before producing a detailed treatment plan that is specially guided by your requirements.
The exact step-by-step process used for dental makeovers typically runs as follows:
- Consultation. During your initial consultation, your dentist will talk through all the options involved with smile makeovers. They will then look at your teeth and take photos to determine the best course of action for your exact teeth.
- Decision. Following this consultation, your dentist will discuss relevant treatment plans with you and give you the opportunity to decide what you want to do. Once you have made your decision, your dentist will then provide you with a detailed treatment plan.
- Procedure. The procedure you choose will vary on a case-by-case basis but, once you know which one is best for you, your dentist will book you in for an appointment.
