Smile Make Overs

Is there anything you wish you could change about your smile?

Have you always hoped your teeth could be a little longer, straighter, or much whiter?

A simple, straightforward smile goes far beyond getting a second look from people when you’re out in public. Smiling big demonstrates a willingness to open up and be honest, which can be beneficial for your health, career, romantic life and social life. Feeling self conscious about your teeth and smile can lead you to cover up your true personality. When you are confident and happy about your smile and general appearance, people pick up on that fact. These good vibes are infectious. Smiling is also beneficial for your health because it can reduce the symptoms associated with anxiety. When you slow down your breathing and change your expression, you can curb stress before it builds. Reducing stress can improve digestion, lower blood pressure, regulate blood sugar and prevent neurotic reactions.

Most people value the personal and professional benefits of an attractive smile. Yet many people – up to 40% of the population – are dissatisfied with their teeth. Dentists can help you evaluate your smile and suggest cosmetic enhancements that can restore confidence and health. Enhancements include fixing chips, closing gaps, whitening teeth, straightening teeth, reducing a gummy smile, or a complete smile makeover through porcelain veneers or a combination of the above.

Smile makeover procedures include:

  • Orthodontic-Aligners
  • Advanced Teeth Whitening
  • All-Porcelain Crowns & Veneers
  • Crown Lengthening (Gum Lifts)
  • Dental Implants
  • Cosmetic Smile Design

Orthodontics-Aligners

Having straightened teeth is something that millions of people have been able to experience thanks to braces. But although they are very effective they can be inconvenient to patients, especially given that they sometimes need to be worn for as long as three years. What many young people struggle with is having a mouth full of unsightly metal brackets and wires during a time in their life when social situations can be awkward enough anyway.

Thanks to   aligners you can now have your teeth straightened in a manner just as effective as with traditional braces but in a fraction of the time and without all the metal in your mouth. The average time that aligners need to be worn is less than six months and some treatment last just six weeks.

Aligners are completely removable and can be cleaned with ease; another advantage over traditional fixed braces which can easily become messy, there is no need to have any brackets or wires on display when you smile.

Lingual braces

Lingual braces are one of the “invisible” treatment methods that your orthodontist may have to offer you for the most part; they look like conventional dental braces that have been mounted on the backside (lingual, tongue side) of your teeth. This hides them from view, making them unnoticeable to others  

ADVANCED TOOTH WHITENING-BRIGHTER, LIGHTER, WHITER

White teeth convey youth and self-confidence.  The problem is not everyone is born with perfectly white teeth.  Genetics, aging, medications, foods, and beverages all play a role in the color of your teeth.  You can have a brilliantly white smile without harming your tooth enamel

The subconscious impact of a white smile is radiant health, happiness, warmth and invitation. Today brighter, lighter, whiter teeth have become a norm. Tooth whitening by bleaching is a successful, conservative, relatively inexpensive and safe alternative

ALL PORCELAIN CROWNS AND VENEERS

. Crowns and veneers cover natural teeth to strengthen and protect your smile. A crown covers the entire tooth, whereas veneers only cover the front surface and leading edge of teeth

. With porcelain crowns and veneers we can:

  • Make teeth appear longer or shorter
  • Repair cracked, broken, or chipped teeth
  • Cover stains (including tetracycline stains)
  • Correct gaps and slight rotations
  • Correct alignment
  • Correct tooth size discrepancies with correct proportioning
  • Change the color and brightness of teeth
  • Match single restorations with natural teeth 

Crown Lengthening (Gum Lifts)

Many people with excess gum display are unhappy with their smile but unaware of treatment options available.  Teeth in these situations often appear short or stubby; as long as they are wide.  There are basically four conditions where excess gum tissue is present:

  • Altered Passive Eruption
  • Short or Hyperactive Upper Lip
  • Dental Alveolar Extrusion
  • Vertical Maxillary Excess
  • Combinations of the above

COSMETIC DENTAL IMPLANTS

Cosmetic Dental Implants are now the standard of care for replacing a single tooth, or even an entire arch. Cosmetic dental implants are a popular solution for those who have been in dentures for decades, or months, to regain a natural dental function.

A dental implant is used in conjunction with tooth coloured ceramic crowns. Dental implants are made of titanium, and affixed to your natural jawbone, to act just as a natural root would. You really won’t be able to feel the difference!

Dental implants are considered to be minimally invasive. While other procedures like bridgework will affect the surrounding teeth, implants leave your existing teeth untouched. This is incredibly important to the long term health of your mouth.

A smile makeover generally combines several cosmetic dentistry techniques to focus most prominently on improving the appearance of your smile. a dentist can  help you to get your dream smile   Therefore, any oral health issues will need to be treated beforehand. An extreme makeover dentist will carefully listen to your goals for your smile and discuss the options with you for how to achieve the more youthful, attractive smile that you desire.
