Smile Makeover Treatment Process
After your first consultation and intra-oral scans, you will receive detailed treatment options from our dentists. You then have the possibility to decide together with your dentist which dental treatment is right for the results you want to achieve.
With the help of our cutting-edge digital scanning equipment we will be able to show you a 3D image of your new smile. We can also print a model for you to see and evaluate the potential outcome. You can even take this model home with you. Our team members will be able to show you the treatment results on the computer screen.
In the next step, your dentist will prepare your teeth for the treatment. Depending on the elements of the procedure, a smile makeover can usually be completed within two weeks if it does not involve dental implants or orthodontics.
Smile Makeover Components
A smile makeover mainly addresses the aesthetic zone of your smile (smile zone). This is the section of your upper and lower teeth that are visible when you smile or speak. Several other factors may also influence the treatment choice for your smile makeover.
Tooth Colour and Texture
Your tooth colour will play an important role in your smile makeover. However, at Dental Implants and Aesthetics we aim to achieve natural results for our patients. This means that we want our patients to leave our practice with a smile that does not look artificial. Your dentist will also consider the texture of your teeth and will try to match it as close as possible with the restorations. If you are not happy with the colour or the texture of your natural teeth we will assist you in achieving a desirable outcome.
Alignment of Teeth
The alignment of your teeth may also play a role in a smile makeover. Veneers and crowns can cover small gaps or align slightly crooked front teeth. Invisalign is a clear aligner treatment option that can straighten mild and moderate cases of orthodontic issues such as cross bites, over bites, and other malalignments.
Tooth Length and Proportions
If the teeth in your smile zone seem too short or don’t have the appropriate size to complement your face and smile, your dentist may be able to change the proportions. In many cases, this involves a rearrangement of the gums by using crown-lengthening treatment. Crown lengthening is an advanced periodontal procedure including the reshaping of your gums. It aims to give your teeth a lengthened and healthy appearance.
