There are many factors in the oral environment that make it difficult to keep an ideal smile. Thankfully, a smile makeover can restore your smile to the way it was or even better. Let’s explore what exactly a smile makeover is so you can decide if it’s right for you.

Understanding Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover can consist of placing porcelain veneers on healthy teeth where there might be a tooth size discrepancy, spacing, symmetry, or color issues. Or placing porcelain veneers/restorations on cracked, fractured, eroded, or decayed teeth. A smile makeover also replaces old metal-based crowns to all porcelain crowns, and replaces missing teeth with cosmetic implants or porcelain bridges. The goal of every smile makeover is to enhance the smile on the individual person’s face and to satisfy the personal goals of the individual. Let’s take a look at some common things that a smile makeover addresses.

How Can a Smile Makeover Help?

  • Correcting/Replacing old dental work as you age
  • Old crowns and fillings may become damaged, stained or decayed over time. You may be unhappy with the old dental work and feel it doesn’t compliment your smile. A smile makeover replaces old crowns and fillings with aesthetic porcelain materials building strength and beauty back to your smile
  • Repairing damage from past trauma. A smile makeover is often focused on repairing past damage and making it as aesthetically pleasing as possible. This is important for things like enamel damage, cracked teeth, chipped teeth, teeth discoloration, teeth trauma, and teeth alignment
  • A gummy smile is most commonly caused by an overgrowth of gum tissue. Gum contouring is often part of a smile makeover to create a balanced smile. The gum tissue will be removed strategically to create the desired smile.
