Frequently Asked Questions
Am I a good candidate for a smile makeover?
Generally speaking, as long as a patient has good oral health, they will be classed as a viable candidate for a smile makeover. If there is active gum disease or decay, this must be addressed before cosmetic treatments commence. This ensures the results are longer lasting and avoids the need to repeat treatments at a later date.
These are just some of the issues that can be corrected with a smile makeover;
– Protruding teeth
– Missing teeth
– Teeth that are too long / too short
– Rotated teeth
– Chipped / broken teeth
– Gaps between your teeth
What does a smile makeover include?
Each smile makeover is unique to the individual and specifically designed with the patients desired results in mind.
Our experts will provide you with a detailed treatment plan during your FREE SMILE EVALUATION, outlining the steps and procedures required. This will include the timeline and pricing, which will be discussed in detail before treatment commences.
Typically, some of the procedures involved in smile makeovers can include;
– Tooth whitening
The starting point in cosmetic dentistry is to treat the discolouration of teeth by whitening them to a lighter shade as well as removing any staining. This is always carried out before any bonding or veneer work.
– Composite bonding
Using various dental composites and adhesives, composite bonding is used to repair minor tooth blemishes such as cracks, chips or gaps.
– Dental veneers
Thin ceramic shells bonded to the front of teeth to change shape, brighten, mask discolouration or change the appearance of alignment, spacing and overcrowding.
– Dental bridges
A bridge replaces a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth to either adjacent teeth or a dental implant.
– Dental implants
A dental implant is used to replace missing teeth and is fused to the jawbone to permanently support a crown, denture or bridge.
– Cosmetic orthodontics
Our experts can help guide you on the latest orthodontics from Invisalign to traditional braces as well as alternatives.
How long does it take to complete a smile makeover?
As with most dental treatments, this depends on the individual, the treatments they are receiving and the condition of their teeth. Certain aspects of your smile makeover, such as teeth whitening, can be delivered quickly with results showing within just a couple of weeks. More extensive work, such as dental implants, can take several months to complete.
