Smile makeovers involve various cosmetic dentistry procedures to improve the smile’s appearance, such as dental veneers, composite bondings, tooth implants, and teeth whitening. Cosmetic dentists will examine your smile with you and possibly make suggestions to improve certain aspects.
With the help of a cosmetic dentist, you can create a treatment plan that will accomplish exactly what you want from your makeover. The treatment plan may include cosmetic procedures and functionally restorative ones like teeth whitening, veneers, composite bonding, oral maxillofacial surgery, dental crowns, orthodontics, and smile correction.
Your cosmetic dentist will evaluate your teeth and smile for a number of attributes, including color, alignment, balance, and shape of your teeth when planning your smile makeover.
1. Shape and Length of Teeth
Long, straight teeth characterize an attractive smile. As we age, our teeth wear down and become shorter. A gummy smile, too, can make them appear shorter. A composite bonding or porcelain veneer may be used to reshape and lengthen the central front teeth in cases of short teeth. You may also be referred to a periodontist if you need root canal treatment for a gummy smile. A cosmetic dentist could also use laser dentistry to modify the gum line and lengthen the appearance of your teeth.
2. Smile Line
Ideally, your smile line should follow the curve of your lower lip when you smile, in addition to the edges of your upper teeth. The length of your new teeth can be determined using this standard reference point.
3. Proportions of Your Teeth and Gums
Our cosmetic dentist can ensure that your teeth are in the right proportion. Typically, a pleasing smile has dominant two central front teeth and a width-to-length ratio of four to five. As a consequence of this proportion, other teeth in the aesthetic zone appear balanced in length and width.
4. Description of Tooth Texture
Dental artists can custom design crowns or veneers to match the look of natural teeth or photographs, as well as to provide you with a more feminine or masculine appearance.
The lifetime of your smile makeover is also influenced by your ceramist, lab technician, and the materials used by your dentist. Choose your cosmetic dentist carefully and inquire about your material options to obtain the finest results.
