Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about smile makeovers.
A smile makeover is the term given to one, or a combination of, cosmetic dental procedures meant to make your smile more beautiful. This can include treatments such as porcelain veneers, cosmetic porcelain crowns, fixed porcelain bridges, and even dental implants.
Anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their smile would love a smile makeover! Candidacy for a smile makeover really depends on the exact choice of treatment that you would like. Patients will always be asked to attend a consultation appointment with one of our qualified and experienced team members, who will undertake a comprehensive physical examination of your mouth and teeth, and ask you about your oral and medical history. It may also be necessary for you to attend an appointment to get x-rays or a CT scan of your mouth and jaw to determine if your choice of treatment is possible.
Contrary to popular belief, a smile makeover can offer a lot more than just a transformed appearance. Having good teeth and a beautiful smile can be beneficial in other ways including boosting your confidence and reducing your stress levels. Procedures such as porcelain crowns and dental implants can improve your oral health, which has also been shown to benefit your general health and wellbeing. Many procedures can also improve the function of your mouth too, such as filling the gap left by missing teeth with dental implants.
