There is a spectrum of treatments that fall under the umbrella of Cosmetic Dentistry. They can all be used in various ways and combinations to change a person’s smile. We call this a Smile Makeover.
The Smile Makeover often gives an illusion of a particular look. It can be made up of crowns, bridges, implants and/or veneers. A treatment plan for a smile makeover can involve multi-layers of cosmetic dental treatments. The simplest Smile Makeovers involve only veneers. However, orthodontic and subsequently ultrathin veneer combinations are also very popular.
We can change 3 main aspects of the smile:
- The colour – this can be your choice and we will plan the correct shade of teeth for you. Modern dentistry now affords a huge palette of the colour “white” so we can create really natural looking teeth.
- The positioning of the teeth. A smile makeover can give the illusion of straighter and complimentary to the face teeth. It can make rotated or crooked teeth appear in line with the rest of the smile. This is done by designing a new smile that takes this consideration in account.
- The shape of the teeth and smile. We will design a unique smile creation using our Smiles2SuitU technique. This smile design will provide information of which teeth we need to reshape and how. It also gives us information about what type of form of teeth is best suited to your facial form. We then incorporate these features into your new smile.
We can use a variety of techniques to create different type of new smiles:
- The Natural Smile
- The Hollywood Smile
- The Bollywood Smile
- The Glamour Smile
- The Realistic Smile
- The Perfect Smile
- The Personalised Smile
The best thing about a smile makeover is that it can be completely personalized to suit your specific cosmetic needs. A smile makeover can be used to make a complete transformation in how you appear like a Hollywood or Glamour Smile. Alternatively, we can create subtle nuances that enhance your own smile making it better but not so different as in the Natural Smile.
Sometimes, a person may only be looking for very soft and subtle changes or perhaps only need one or two teeth changing whilst the rest can be simply whitened – we call this a Mini-Makeover, since only some things are being improved. You can end up with a great Realistic Smile as a result.
The choice of new smile is totally up to you. The process to your new smile starts with a Smile Analysis and examination. This will help us to create a unique Treatment Plan of action just for you.
