“Peace begins with a smile” “A smile is worth a thousand words” “Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful”
The power of the smile has been noted since the beginning of time. A happy and confident smile can make you stand out in a crowd, yet many of us are self-conscious about the appearance of our teeth.
When we create Smile Makeovers, we apply our in-depth technical knowledge of dentistry along with the artistic flair of our team. Face shape, tooth shape and colour, tooth size,the way you bite, the way your jaw works, age and your specific requirements all play an important role during the planning of your new smile to ensure not only a stunning final result, but a smile that is functional and long lasting.
A smile makeover is a process of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Smile makeovers take into consideration a person’s facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, teeth, gums, and lips. Smile makeovers perform the necessary procedures according to a person’s needs.
Tooth colour and shading are important considerations during the evaluation and preparation for various procedures, including porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, composite bonding, and dental implants.
A smile makeover is finding the right balance between providing you with a brighter, whiter smile and maintaining a natural tooth colour. The shade your dentist selects for dental veneers is carefully evaluated and agreed with you.
If a person has tooth loss, dental implants are often the best long-term option. Crooked and overlapping teeth can be straightened and aligned when necessary through orthodontics, including Invisalign, CFast and Six Month Smiles.
Missing teeth can affect your smile negatively, also changing your bite and increasing your risk for tooth decay. Missing teeth are replaceable with dental implants, bridges or partial dentures.
In providing a smile makeover, the dentist works closely with each patient to meet their needs and develop a treatment plan designed to achieve their goals for the makeover. Aesthetic components of a smile makeover also include fixing tooth length, smile line, tooth proportions, and tooth texture and characterization.
These are aesthetic components of a smile makeover: Longer teeth tend to appear more youthful. As we age, teeth experience wear and tear, resulting in shorter teeth. You may develop a “gummy” smile. To treat this, we can reshape and lengthen the two front teeth with composite bonding or porcelain veneers. Lengthening the teeth can also help improve the overall appearance of your face and smile.
A smile makeover also includes the smile line. This standard point of reference may be used to help determine how long your new teeth should be.
