It is rare for people to have a perfect and beautiful smile and ageing, lifestyle habits and dental disease can all take their toll on your teeth. A smile makeover can rejuvenate the appearance of your teeth, and most importantly many of the cosmetic dentistry treatments used are designed to make sure you enjoy an optimal level of dental health.
How Can a Smile Makeover Help Dental Health?
The treatments utilized during a smile makeover can repair teeth damaged by tooth decay or trauma, getting rid of any infection while preserving and protecting the remaining tooth structure. Worn, chipped or cracked teeth can all be restored to their former glory ensuring your smile looks fantastic and that you can bite, chew and talk comfortably and confidently.
Teeth that are entirely missing can be replaced using dental bridges or the very latest dental implants in Whitby. It is always important to replace any missing teeth as otherwise, gaps in your smile could negatively affect your dental health. When you are missing one or more teeth, the teeth adjacent can drift into this gap, potentially destabilizing them and altering your bite. Also, when you are missing teeth, your remaining teeth must work harder to chew food properly.
What Are the Types of Treatments Used during a Smile Makeover?
Many different treatments can be used during a smile makeover in Oshawa, depending on your aims and desires, and your current dental health. People whose teeth are relatively healthy may require only minor modifications. Others might be looking to make more substantial changes to the appearance of their teeth. Treatments typically used during a smile makeover include teeth whitening, tooth-coloured bonded fillings, crowns and bridges, dental implants, and porcelain veneers. Adult braces are another option, and Margolian Dentistry can provide Invisalign aligners that are virtually invisible, and which provide excellent and predictable results.
How Can I Tell Which Treatments Will Help Me?
You probably have a good idea as to how you’d like to change your smile, and the first step is to communicate your wishes and desires to your cosmetic dentist in Ajax. Before your appointment, you might want to jot down a few things that you’d really like to change or which you want to preserve. For example, perhaps you have a gap in between your front teeth that you’d love to get rid of, or maybe you love that gap and want to preserve it because it’s part of your personality! Also, make a note of any questions you want to ask or check the website for information about cosmetic dental treatments.
Planning Your New Smile
Your dentist will spend some time chatting with you to discover your aims for your smile makeover and will gently examine your mouth to determine your current dental health. It’s also worth discussing your budget and the time needed these for treatment. Some people plan smile makeovers in preparation for specific events, and if this applies to you, it’s best to allow plenty of time just in case you want or desire more complicated and lengthier treatments. The information is used to create a custom treatment plan which shows possible procedures and the costs. Your dentist can explain each treatment in more detail, so you should have a good understanding as to how it could help you.
