A smile makeover takes into consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth (color, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and lips to develop your ideal smile. Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons and customized according to your unique considerations. A smile makeover generally combines several cosmetic dentistry techniques to focus most prominently on improving the appearance of your smile. Therefore, any oral health issues will need to be treated beforehand. Depending on your smile makeover goals, personal preferences and dental health, cosmetologists may use veneers such as Lumineers, porcelain veneers or zirconium veneers. Each one provides great, long-lasting results that can give you a Hollywood smile in no time. Cosmetic treatments can also be combined with restorative options like porcelain dental crowns, dental implants and white fillings for a complete smile makeover. No matter which Smile Makeover Treatments are used during your smile makeover, the lifespan of your beautiful new smile is almost entirely up to you. While some tooth restorations require eventual replacement, you can increase their duration through daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental visits. Be sure to avoid chewing hard foods that can chip or crack your porcelain restorations or original teeth. If you grind your teeth at night, ask your dentist about a night guard to protect your teeth.
