About Smile Makeover
A smile makeover is the process of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures:
When we plan your smile makeover there are many components taken into consideration including your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth (color, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and lips.
Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons and customized according to your unique desires and concerns.
Unsightly dental fillings can be replaced with natural, tooth-colored composite restorations, while teeth whitening can improve the color of stained or dulled teeth.
Tooth color and shading are important considerations during the evaluation of and preparation for various procedures, including porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, composite bonding and dental implants.
Dark or discolored teeth may suggest an aging mouth. A well-shaped smile comprised of bright, white teeth promotes a youthful appearance.
The shade you select for your teeth whitening and veneers is carefully evaluated with special consideration given to the tone and color of your skin and hair.
We are skilled at finding the right balance between providing you with a brighter, whiter smile and maintaining a natural appearance.
Alignment and Spacing:
Teeth that are crooked, overlapping or have gaps between them can be straightened and aligned when necessary with orthodontics or Invisalign and improved with veneers.
One or more missing teeth can negatively affect the appearance of your smile – as well as affect your bite and increase your risk for tooth decay or breakage– making replacement an integral part of oral health and facial esthetics.
Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants, bridges or partial dentures.
Harmony and Balance:
Uneven, chipped and cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded for an improved appearance, and a gummy smile can be re-contoured to help improve the overall look of the smile.
Fuller Lips, Smile and Cheeks:
An unshapely or aging face can be improved or rejuvenated with certain procedures in the smile makeover category, including orthodontics and/or oral maxillofacial surgery as well as botox or lip filler injections.
We will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan designed to achieve your desired aesthetic effect.
Your treatment plan may consist of a variety of cosmetic and functionally restorative procedures, potentially including teeth whitening, composite bonding, veneers, dental crowns, orthodontics (braces), and gum recontouring.
of a Smile Makeover
In addition to the color, alignment and balance of your teeth in the aesthetic zone of your smile (the section of upper and lower teeth that show when you smile), there are several attributes of your teeth and smile that together we will evaluate with you when planning your makeover.
These include tooth length, smile line, tooth proportions, shape and texture.
Your oral health must be evaluated before we develop a plan for your smile makeover.
Our team will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth, gums, underlying support structure and bite (occlusion) to determine if you are a candidate for a smile makeover.
