Millions of people across the globe undergo cosmetic dental treatments every year, in order to improve the appearance and health of their teeth and smiles. With a smile makeover, the smile, teeth, lips, corners of the mouth, jaw line, chin, muscles, oral health and facial symmetry should all be taken into account before the aesthetics are addressed.
In some cases, patients are able to obtain their desired smile through the use of a simple teeth whitening procedure. However, in most cases, more than one cosmetic dental treatment is required. The following is a list of all the oral issues that can be fixed with a smile makeover:
Chipped, broken or worn teeth
Chipped, broken or worn teeth can be repaired with metal-free dentistry that will harmoniously blend in with your natural teeth. There are many restorative treatments available to repair chipped, broken or worn teeth, such us composite fillings, veneers and dental crowns.
Uneven teeth can be lengthened or shortened in order to enhance your smile. In some cases, veneers or dental crowns would be used to improve your appearance.
Missing tooth / teeth
Missing teeth can be replaced with the help of dental implants, dental bridges or partial dentures.
A “gummy” smile
If your smile exposes more gums than usual, you your smile is considered to be “gummy” and can be comfortably contoured with a laser and porcelain crowns can be placed.
Discoloured or stained teeth
Teeth can be whitened in less than an hour, using the latest dental technology. If teeth whitening does not give you a brighter smile – this could be due to the exposure of the dentine beneath the tooth enamel- veneers can be bonded to the teeth, giving it a whiter and brighter appearance.
Metal fillings that causes teeth to turn grey
Metal fillings can easily be replaced with composite resin fillings to give you a natural, aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Crooked or overlapped teeth
Crooked and overlapping teeth can be straightened with Invisalign braces – transparent braces that go undetected – or by means of an instant smile makeover.
Your desired smile can be obtained within as little as three comfortable visits. Contact us for a dentist in Cape Town.
