In many ways, making over your smile is sometimes a numbers game. On average, you have 28 individual teeth (minus the four wisdom teeth, if you’ve had them extracted). That means you have very limited space to fix your smile if one or more of these teeth become visibly blemished. The point of a smile makeover is to make the most of this limited space to create a beautiful, blemish-free, healthy and vibrant smile, all without having to change too much of your tooth structure. To do that, we can design your complete smile makeover with as few steps as possible using one or more custom-crafted cosmetic enhancements.
What All Your Smile Needs
When your dentist is designing your smile makeover, the first step is examining your teeth, gums, and everything else that can affect your smile’s appearance. The goal is maximum results with minimal changes, and that requires taking all of your smile’s issues into consideration. For instance, some of the most common concerns that a smile makeover can address include:
- Minor to severe teeth stains
- Chips or cracks in tooth surfaces
- Slightly misaligned teeth
- Noticeable spaces between teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Teeth that seem too small
- And more
The Smile Makeover Process
Once your dentist determines exactly what your smile needs, he can design your smile makeover plan to include only the procedures necessary to address your concerns. For instance, if your only issue is teeth stains, then your only treatment may be teeth-whitening. However, smile makeovers also typically contain other treatments, such as cosmetic tooth bonding, porcelain veneers, porcelain dental crowns, and more.
