A smile makeover is a new smile that has been designed to improve your appearance. It may align crowded teeth, close gaps, reduce protrusion, whiten, widen a narrow smile, change the shape of teeth, replace missing teeth or any combination of the above.
A smile makeover can involve either one tooth or the upper and lower eight teeth. The most frequent treatments used in a smile makeover are porcelain veneers because they are the most conservative restoration and because they are strong and look natural.
However, porcelain crowns, bridges and implants can also be part of a smile makeover, depending on the case. Smile makeovers can also involve rapid orthodontics using aligners to either pre-align teeth prior to multiple porcelain veneers, or to align minor crowding of the lower teeth.
Your dentist or orthodontist will discuss your requirements during the consultation, and then take photos and impressions to produce an itemised treatment plan that has been guided by your requirements.
This step-by-step process is used for smile makeover cases. It makes our smile makeovers highly predictable and fine-tuned to the individual.
