Common treatments in a smile makeover

Smile makeover treatments are unique to each individual, addressing a particular set of dental flaws. The combinations are endless in such procedures, however, some of the most common treatments include:

Teeth whitening

This is a very popular procedure, as it is fast, painless, and very efficient while being highly convenient. In smile makeovers, a teeth whitening procedure can result in noticeable improvements in your smile as well as confidence. Your dentist will aid you in selecting the right kind of whitening treatment for your teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings

If you have dental fillings, then your dentist might exchange them for more natural looking tooth-colored fillings that will last for years. Old silver amalgam fillings tend to show more over time as they darken. With composite resin fillings, you can sport a whiter and more pristine smile.

Dental bonding

There are many types of aesthetic flaws that can be corrected by dental bonding just like veneers. Dental resin is applied to the front of your teeth to hide cosmetic flaws. When applying, the dentist will sculpt the resin to give a natural looking appearance.

Tooth replacement

Missing teeth can be addressed during a smile makeover treatment. However, if you are missing many teeth, then a complete mouth restoration might be necessary.

Porcelain veneers

Smile makeovers can take a few weeks to months, depending on individual aesthetic treatment combinations and goals
If you want dramatic results that completely transform your smile, then porcelain veneers are for you. They are among the most common smile makeover procedures because of their instant and dramatic benefits. In this treatment, custom made thin shelled porcelain veneers are attached to your teeth to look natural while enhancing your smile.

Porcelain crowns

There are both practical and cosmetic advantages to getting porcelain crowns. The treatment entails placing of a crown to your teeth that immediately enhances your smile while providing better bite alignment and a stronger tooth.

What is the timeline for this procedure?

Smile makeovers can take a few weeks to months, depending on individual aesthetic treatment combinations and goals. There are many smile makeovers that can be completed within a couple of hours as well.

Generally, the timeline of a makeover depends upon the number of procedures chosen. Your dentist can customize your smile makeover treatment to suit your busy schedule and perform the procedure in multiple stages according to your unique requirements.
