Reinvent Your Smile with Smile Makeover
A smile is a statement and a great accessory. It not only completes your look, but it is also the first thing that people notice about you. Unfortunately, some of us do not have a beautiful smile because of several problems like chips and cracks. Fixing these problems is important for your appearance and dental health too. That’s why you need to look for a smile makeover near you.
A smile makeover is designed to address multiple cosmetic or structural dental imperfections. When done properly, a smile makeover offers great benefits like:
1. Brightens Your Smile
Teeth discoloration is inevitable because of various factors like age and lifestyle. When you smoke and overconsume foods like coffee, wine, tea, and soy sauce, your teeth will develop stains. Poor dental hygiene can also cause the teeth to discolor because of plaque buildup. Plaques are sticky films that can cause the teeth to turn yellow.
While professional cleaning can get rid of the yellow stains, you will need teeth whitening treatments to get rid of the discoloration. We recommend getting professional teeth discoloration to brighten your teeth.
The dentist will apply the varnish, foam, or gel on the teeth for 15 minutes, then rinse it off. The process can be repeated three times depending on the severity of the discoloration.
If you have severe discoloration, you may need other treatments like veneers to improve the appearance of your teeth.
2. Close Unsightly Gaps
There are some people whose teeth are small for the jaw, which causes the teeth to have gaps between them. This space mostly affects the front teeth. While these spaces are not a dental problem, they can affect your smile. The dentist can use treatments like veneers and crowns to cover these gaps.
You can also get spaces when your permanent teeth are removed because of damage or decay. These spaces can damage your dental structure because the spaces cause the surrounding teeth to shift. Furthermore, the alveolar bone (supports the teeth) can start to get reabsorbed by the body, which weakens the teeth.
Replacing these teeth is important to your oral health and appearance. Visit a dentist near you for information on the restorative treatments that can replace your teeth. In general, the dentist can use bridges, dentures, or implants.
Dental bridges are a non-invasive dental procedure that you replace your missing teeth. These are semi-permanent and can last for 15 years, before replacing them.
Dentures are removable teeth that are ideal for you if you have multiple missing teeth, They are also used if you lack the required bone support to have implants fixed.
Dental implants are an alternative for bridges and dentures.
These are metal posts that are surgically fixed on the jaw to anchor the artificial teeth.
3. Have Attractive Gums
We have different gum lines, some lie high up and others low. However, there are instances when the gum line lies below the teeth causing the teeth to look longer. This is usually caused by receding gums or genetics.
When you have gum disease, the infection may begin to affect the gums causing them to recede. This will cause the formation of pockets that can trap food and bacteria.
Although gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure, the dentist can recommend it as part of your periodontal disease.
Gum contouring involves opening the gums to cut the extra gum tissue and reattaching the gums to the teeth.
4. Strengthen Your Teeth
The teeth can wear down because of teeth grinding or clenching. Worn-down teeth are prone to breakage, and that is why it is important to repair them on time. The dentist can use crowns or veneers to strengthen the teeth.
Both veneers and crowns require two dental visits and reshaping of the enamel to be fixed. However, veneers only cover the top part of the teeth (enamel) while the crowns encase the whole tooth.
5. Covers the Cracks and Chips
When the teeth crack or chip, you can repair them with dental bonding. Teeth bonding is a process done in less than an hour. The dentist will apply the resin material to the teeth and harden them with laser light.
