What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a dental, facial or cosmetic treatment that can improve the condition, shape, slant or colour of your teeth, the replacement of missing teeth or helps improve the condition of your skin.
What’s the procedure?
Seeing Dr Parmar to discuss your concerns about your smile, face or teeth is the start. We will listen to what you concerns are and what you envisage needs to be done to improve your smile. Often simple improvements will make the difference. You will be given information and an evaluation of how your smile can be improved. Computer simulation and models can be used to show you what results we can expect to achieve.
What are the treatment options?
Smile makeovers vary according to the needs of each patient. There are quite a few options available through our practice which include: teeth whitening to brighten stained teeth; Invisalign braces to straighten crooked teeth; porcelain veneers to give your teeth their natural white shape and to repair damaged teeth; cosmetic bonding or porcelain crowns to restore chipped and broken teeth and dental implants or bridges to replace missing teeth. Dermal fillers and botox can be used to reduce wrinkles from aging or injury.
If your front teeth are stained, chipped, or malaligned, veneers will give you a good life-like appearance with minimum tooth adjustment.
A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is bonded to a tooth to improve its colour and/or shape. A veneer generally covers the front and top of a tooth, therefore requiring very little removal of tooth structure. Veneers can be used to close spaces between teeth, lengthen small or mis-shapen teeth or whiten stained or dark teeth. When teeth are chipped and beginning to wear, veneers can protect them from damage and restore their original looks.
Veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed.
Teeth Whitening Procedure
- Discoloured, chipped or cracked teeth can benefit from a veneer
