A smile makeover is the process of improving the overall appearance of a patient’s teeth using one or several cosmetic dental treatments. These can be completed in stages or over the course of several months to achieve the desired results.
If you feel self-conscious about your teeth and have always wanted a smile that you can show off proudly – then a smile makeover could be the ideal solution.
Is a Smile Makeover Suitable for Me?
If a patient has good overall oral health, then generally speaking they will most likely be a suitable candidate for a smile makeover. Problems such as decay or active gum disease will need to be treated and addressed before we are able to commence any cosmetic dental procedures.
If you suffer from any of the following, then you could benefit from a smile makeover;
- Missing teeth
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Gaps in between the teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Rotated or protruding teeth
- Teeth that are too short or too long
What Does a Smile Makeover Entail?
The elements of a smile makeover will vary depending on the individual patient. Some may require just one or two treatments, whereas for some it can involve a combination of several procedures which together will help to deliver a magnificent smile. Some of these treatments can include;
Used to repair small chips, cracks or gaps – dental composite bonding is a simple yet effective way to resolve minor cosmetic issues.
Dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone to artificially replace the root of the missing tooth to help support crowns, bridges or dentures and provide a long term solution for absent teeth.
This simple but effective treatment is a fast but convenient way to achieve a brighter, whiter smile and help to improve discolouration and remove staining.
These thin ceramic shells are bonded to the front of teeth to help correct minor flaws such as chips, cracks, discolouration, gaps, spacing, overcrowding and alignment to provide a natural, healthy looking smile.
For misaligned, crowded or spaced teeth there are a wide range of orthodontic solutions from traditional metal braces to Invisalign.
Used to help replace missing teeth, dental bridges use the teeth adjacent to the spaces to support a replacement tooth or teeth that is fixed in place.
At Springfield Dental our experts will create a detailed treatment plan, tailor made to outline every step of the smile makeover and the procedures involved including timescales and pricing details. Your bespoke treatment plan will be designed to ensure that the process is as comfortable as possible and works to a timescale that will best help you to achieve your desired results.
How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?
The length of the smile makeover process will be dependent on the individual patient, their needs and the amount of treatment required.
Some stages such as whitening or composite bonding can show results in just a few hours but more complex dental procedures such as bridges, veneers or orthodontics will take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to complete.
How Much Will My Smile Makeover Cost?
Every smile makeover treatment plan is unique to each individual patient and therefore will depend on the amount of treatment you require and the type of procedures you need.
To ensure there are no surprises, all of the costs will be clearly broken down and explained to you during your initial consultation and before any treatment commences.
