What is a smile makeover? It is very simply, when patients would like more than a single treatment to cosmetically improve their smile, for example, tooth whitening and veneers. It is a bespoke solution where a plan is created with the patient’s specific needs in mind. So which treatments can be classed as being part of a smile makeover? Find out below….
Tooth whitening has become an extremely popular treatment worldwide and has a very patient satisfaction rate. Tooth whitening is a bespoke process that can be performed at the practice and then continued by the patient at home. Here at Fresh Dental, your dentist will create bespoke whitening trays and a whitening agent is safely applied to the trays – this is what is responsible for whitening your teeth. It is essential that you have the procedure carried out by a dentist or doctor and not a beauty therapist, as they do not have the relevant qualifications to perform this though still offer the treatment all over the world. This is unsafe and can cause irrevocable damage to your teeth as the whitening agent can leek into your gums as the trays used are not bespoke.
White tooth-coloured composite fillings or ceramic restorations can give you rejuvenated-looking smile here at Fresh. White composite fillings can be colour matched to your existing teeth, giving a discreet and natural appearance. As well as being an improved aesthetic solution, these material are stronger than amalgam fillings and do not cause as much sensitivity to hot and cold drinks.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns can be perfectly colour watched to fit in with your existing teeth and here at Fresh Dental we use Cerec technology to offer same day crown appointments. In some cases a bridge is a more appropriate restoration Dental bridges can replace gaps left by one or more teeth, bridging the gap with a small cluster of false teeth.
Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are fixed onto your tooth with a very effective and strong adhesive. Veneers are a durable option if you are looking to change the shape, colour and position of your teeth and this can totally transform your smile.
Unlike a crown, a veneer covers mainly the visible front part of the tooth and can sometimes wrap over the biting edge. Veneers are a durable solution that offer natural-looking results and there is no recovery period.
