What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a procedure that encompasses several other cosmetic treatments including veneers, teeth whitening, crowns and fillings and dental implants.
Teeth whitening is a bespoke process that is very popular all over the world. Here at Fresh our dentists are fully qualified to carry out this procedure and use bespoke whitening trays where the whitening agent cannot leak through and over onto your gums. This is a potential risk with non-bespoke methods carried out by those who do not have the right qualifications and use a ‘one-size-fits-all’ method.
Do you have a cracked, chipped, broken, damaged or discoloured tooth? Veneers procedure an amazing cosmetic result. They are porcelain shells than fit over the front of your tooth surfaces. Veneers can also be used to close gaps in your teeth. There is a small amount of preparation involved in creating dental veneers including etching the tooth inquisition down to the correct size. This is so that your new tooth does not protrude. A special adhesive is used to bond the veneer to your tooth. One of the great advantages of veneers is that they are stain-resistant, so you can continue enjoying the foods you love without feeling too guilty!
Crowns and bridges
If you have a tooth that has previously been filled or cannot be repaired due to a larger break, you may need a crown to save the tooth. Crowns are single tooth restorations that can be matched and shaped to suit your existing teeth. In some situations a bridge is more suitable and can replace the gap left by one or several teeth. Bridges are attached to your existing natural teeth each side of the gap. This can be created using CEREC technology.
There are certain smile makeover combinations that are particularly popular, such as veneers and teeth whitening and/or orthodontics. Ask your dentist here at Fresh if you would like to know other common combinations.
