What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a comprehensive dental procedure or series of procedures aimed at improving the appearance of your smile. It typically involves a combination of cosmetic and restorative dentistry techniques to address various dental issues such as stained, misaligned, chipped, or missing teeth. The goal of a smile makeover is to enhance the overall aesthetics of the smile, resulting in a more attractive and confident appearance.
Some common treatments included in a smile makeover may include teeth whitening, dental veneers, dental crowns, orthodontic treatments like fixed braces or Invisalign, dental implants, and gum contouring, among others. The specific procedures used in a smile makeover can vary depending on your unique dental needs and goals.
It's important to consult with your dentist or dental specialist to assess your specific dental concerns and determine the most appropriate treatments for your smile makeover. The ultimate aim is to achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile that complements your facial features and enhances your self-esteem.
What Treatments Can You Expect?
If you want to makeover your smile this year, then at the Orthodontic Suite we have a range of treatments that can help you to get whiter, straighter and more uniform looking teeth. Some of the treatments you might expect in a smile makeover include:
Dental Implants - these are a durable and natural-looking solution for replacing missing teeth, using titanium posts surgically embedded into the jawbone as synthetic tooth roots. Dental implants serve as a strong foundation for custom-made replacement teeth like crowns, bridges, or dentures. The process involves the implant bonding with the bone through osseointegration, typically taking 3 to 6 months, with a temporary tooth option during this period. Dental implants have a high success rate of approximately 95%, but suitability may depend on overall oral health, so we encourage you to book an appointment to discuss your options and eligibility.
Dental Veneers - these are thin, custom-made shells typically crafted from porcelain or composite resin. The veneer shells are designed to cover the front surface of natural teeth, effectively transforming their appearance. Dental veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry option used to improve the look of teeth that are discoloured, stained, chipped, misaligned, or have gaps between them. They provide a natural and aesthetically pleasing solution, enhancing the shape, colour, and alignment of teeth. Veneers are a minimally invasive procedure that can create a stunning, long-lasting smile makeover with relatively little impact on the underlying tooth structure.
Teeth Whitening - we use the Enlighten system at The Orthodontic Suite to whiten teeth that have become discoloured over time due to various factors such as smoking or consuming certain foods and drinks. The Enlighten system is a fast and effective teeth whitening solution, with most treatments lasting three weeks and aiming for a B1 shade for 98% of patients. The process involves applying a gel using custom trays over the course of three weeks, with a focus on safety, minimal discomfort, long-lasting results, and the ability to maintain a regular diet during treatment.
Composite Bonding - this dental treatment is used to improve the appearance of teeth. It involves the application of a tooth-coloured composite resin material to the tooth's surface, which is then sculpted, shaped, and polished to correct various dental issues. This versatile procedure can be used to repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps between teeth, alter the shape or size of teeth, and even cover up stains or discolorations. Composite bonding is a minimally invasive and relatively quick cosmetic solution, offering immediate results without the need for significant tooth reduction. It provides a natural-looking, durable, and cost-effective way to enhance your smile and address minor dental imperfections.
When you are unhappy with your smile, one treatment isn't always enough to give you the results you’ve been hoping for, which is why smile makeovers exist - to enable us to tailor a series of treatments to give you the new smile of your dreams.
