What is a smile makeover?

Posted by MINT DENTAL CARE on Jan 28 2020, 04:59 AM

Cosmetic dentistry has brought so many procedures to the table lately. Patients often visit us with several oral issues that have ruined their beautiful smiles. But, at the end of the various cosmetic dental procedures that we carry out, they leave our practice with a smile that is as pleasing and appealing as ever!

A smile makeover is a collection of several cosmetic dental procedures that are aimed at improving the appearance of one’s smile. When a patient is subjected to several oral conditions that can’t be treated by just one procedure, it would require a combination of multiple procedures to treat the case.

When you opt for a smile makeover, we would treat multiple oral issues such as broken teeth, chipped or misshapen teeth, worn out or badly discolored teeth, teeth with uneven spacing, malocclusion, etc. Every condition will be diagnosed in detail and the perfect solution will be recommended by the dentist.

What does a smile makeover include?

Dental crowns:Crowns are popularly known as caps as they are used to cover the entire surface of a tooth. They look exactly like natural teeth in terms of contour, color, translucency, etc. but hollow on the inside. They are used to restore teeth that are damaged, worn out, broken, misshapen, chipped, or just too weak to sustain on their own, such as in the case of a root canal infection. Crowns can be customized to such an extent that they would be virtually indistinguishable from the adjoining natural teeth.

Veneers: Ceramic veneers are used to get rid of the surface imperfections from the frontal surface of the teeth. They are tooth-colored, ceramic structures that are custom-fabricated to match the exact contour of the natural teeth, making them simple, effective, and easy to maintain.

Gum contouring: Gum contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure that is used to remove infected gum tissues and replace them with healthy ones. Gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis are serious oral conditions that can decay of gum tissues and can affect one’s entire oral health. Halting the spread of the infection would require the removal of the infected tissues. Healthy tissues would have to be extracted from a different part of the mouth and grafted to the infected region to restore the appearance of one’s smile.

Implants and bridges:Missing teeth could be a huge letdown. In the case of a missing frontal tooth, it would be quite apparent every time you smile. This can make you feel too conscious of your appearance every time you talk to someone or even pose for pictures. Replacing a missing tooth by using dental implants or bridges is essential to restore the aesthetics and functionality of the mouth. They can be customized to mimic the appearance of the missing natural teeth.

Teeth whitening: Consuming a lot of colored foods and improper cleaning of the teeth afterward can lead to discoloration. Other factors such as the ill-effects of certain medication, aging, or chewing tobacco can make your teeth appear dull and discolored. Teeth whitening procedures can be used to remove stains from the surface of the teeth and give you whiter teeth.
