Create The Smile You Have Always Wanted A good smile is incredibly important – it is the first thing others notice about us. A smile makeover typically involves fixing the front 8 to 10 teeth on your upper jaw. It can also include 8 to 10 front teeth on the lower jaw. The treatment frequently uses porcelain veneers, implants / crowns and cosmetic bonding to create a beautiful, natural smile that you can wear with confidence.
Before and After
Porcelain Veneers –individually crafted porcelain shells fitted to the front of the teeth are very popular for smile makeovers. Usually used to fix gaps between teeth, damaged teeth and permanently stained teeth.
Cosmetic Bonding – Usually used to improve the appearance of cracked or chipped teeth. Helps where minor repairs or subtle changes to the teeth shape is needed.
Crowns – Crowns can be a good option if you prefer not to have porcelain veneers. A porcelain crown can be used to improve the size, shape and appearance of a tooth, producing beautiful results.
Contouring – the procedure is used to level a smile line that’s uneven. Often used to level a pointed canine or small chip.
Implants – Dental implants are the most effective solution for replacing missing teeth. It’s the only procedure that comes closest to replicating the function of natural teeth.
Gummy smile correction – Gum contouring can be used to remove excess gum tissue to improve the appearance of an uneven gum lines or a gummy smile. Aesthetic treatments can also help in some cases.
Teeth Whitening – Brighten your smile with professional teeth whitening on completion of preceding cosmetic procedures. Zoom Instant Whitening provides instant whitening results. Or try Enlighten, a premium whitening system that guarantees results.
Smile Design At Whites Dental, our cosmetic dentists can help you design the smile you want before actually starting any treatment. This is part of our smile design process, integral to all our smile makeovers. We will first conduct a thorough assessment of your teeth and provide you with various treatment options. Once you are happy with the options chosen, we will create a physical 3D model (also called a study model) of what your teeth will look like after treatment. This gives you the opportunity to view your new smile in the minutest detail and from all angles. You can suggest changes at this stage. Once you are happy with your new smile design, we will then manufacture veneers, crowns and implants to the exact specification in the smile design model to create a beautiful new smile for you.
