A smile makeover is the process of improving your smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, white fillings, crowns or bridges. A smile makeover will restore chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, restore your bite, and return the muscles that control your jaw movement to their natural position.
The goal of a smile makeover is to improve your smile by taking into consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth, gum tissue and lips to develop your ideal smile. Smile makeovers are customized according to your unique considerations.
While Visiting Maher Medical Center you will get the chance to discuss with our Cosmetologist Dr. Andreas Stanke about “what exactly you don’t you like about your smile?” And “how you want your smile to look like?”
Discussing these aspects will give your dentist a clear idea of what he can do to improve your smile. Including some of the following:
Tooth Color: If you suffer from discolored teeth as a result of aging, your food or drink diet or various other yellowing factors, a smile makeover can restore your teeth’s appearance. Teeth whitening can improve the color of stained teeth or if more specialized treatments are needed you may be a candidate for porcelain crowns, or dental implants.
Alignment: Teeth that are misaligned can be straightened and properly aligned through orthodontics like clear aligners or may be improved with veneers.
Spacing: Teeth that have gaps between them may be aligned properly through a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions.
Missing Teeth: Missing teeth are unsightly hindrances that affect the appearance of your smile. They can be replaced with dental implants or bridges.
Chipped, Cracked or Uneven Teeth: Teeth that are chipped, cracked, or uneven can be cosmetically bonded with veneers to improve appearance.
Unshapely Face: Through the use of modern technologies, an unshapely or aging face can be improved or rejuvenated with certain cosmetic dentistry procedures for fuller lips, cheeks and smile.
Tooth Length: The effects of aging and every day wear and tear can detract from a youthful appearance. A smile makeover treatment for shorter teeth may include the reshaping and lengthening of the two front central teeth with composite bonding or porcelain veneers.
Tooth Proportions: A balanced smile gives the appearance of proper proportion and good oral health. Our cosmetologist will work with you to design a treatment plan that enhances your teeth’s esthetics and gives you a beautifully balanced smile line.
Smile Makeover Treatment: Before your smile makeover plan is developed Our cosmetic dentist must first evaluate the condition of your oral health. There is no one set of rules for a smile makeover, they are highly involved procedures and must be customized to individual circumstances. Our cosmetic dentist will evaluate your teeth, gums, underlying support structure and bite (occlusion) to determine candidacy for a smile makeover. If you have any previous oral health problems they will need to be addressed prior to your smile makeover treatment.
