Are you unhappy with your current smile? Does it affect your self-confidence or make you uncomfortable in social situations? Do you find it unpleasant to look in a mirror?
You may be surprised how many people feel this way about their smiles. You are not alone! Many people have complaints about the appearance of their smile, and for this reason, many people decide to undertake a smile makeover. It is the perfect solution for turning your current smile into the smile of your dreams.
So, what exactly is a smile makeover? It is a treatment plan created by you and your dentist that can involve a range of different cosmetic dental treatment options. Depending on the state of your teeth and gums, and what you want to achieve with your smile, your smile makeover may include the following treatment methods offered by your dentist:
Gummy smile treatments
Below, we’ll explain these methods one by one. Everyone’s makeover will be different and will involve a different combination of these treatment methods to achieve your desired result. Your top teeth may need veneers while your bottom teeth need whitening!
Veneers are thin pieces of material, often made of porcelain, that have the appearance of a perfect tooth. These are placed by your dentist onto the surface of your teeth to produce a whiter and more even smile.
Because they are cosmetic treatments, veneers are only commonly used on the teeth that appear at the front of the mouth, particularly the four major and most central teeth on top and bottom.
Dental Veneers help to mask imperfect teeth, including teeth that are slightly rotated or overlapping and offer a stain-resistant and life-like appearance in their place. They are designed to fit over the front surface of your teeth and require minimal tooth reduction in preparation.
Dental bonding involves your dentist spreading a thin coat of resin over the surface of your teeth. In one sitting, this allows your dentist to change your smile to be lustrous and shiny, and white. Bonding can enhance the shape and colour of teeth, and remedy minor damage.
Here at Creative Dental Haus we use Philips ZOOM! Teeth whitening is a highly regarded and trusted teeth whitening procedure. In the clinic, we coat gums and soft tissues in and around the mouth with a protective resin, then apply the ZOOM! The whitening solution to your teeth and use a blue light to activate the gel. We then rinse off this gel and repeat the process to visibly whiten the teeth.
Gummy smile treatments
There is more to your smile than your teeth. While they’re easy to overlook, the gums can be just as influential as the teeth in a person’s smile. If your gums have an overgrown appearance and are too visible in your smile, you may consider gum lifting or gum contouring as an aspect of your smile makeover.
Are there other options available as part of my smile makeover?
Absolutely! A smile makeover is a completely custom procedure and there is no one size fits all approach. Your smile makeover could also include dental crowns, dental bridges, dental implants, orthodontics, and a range of other treatments offered by your dental clinic.
