Since our smile is one of the first things people notice about us, everyone wants to have an attractive bright smile.
A healthy smile can often be an indication of one's overall health and wellbeing; however, sometimes our smile is affected by problems such as discolored or stained teeth, chipped teeth, or crooked teeth. Some smiles are even adversely affected by head, neck, and jaw pain due to Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). These imperfections may make us self-conscious and hesitant to flash those not-so-pearly whites.
Fortunately for us, some highly trained cosmetic dentists are able to perform what is called "smile makeovers" to restore chipped, cracked or discolored teeth; restore your bite, and return facial muscles to their natural position.
Do I need a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover actually refers to any combination of cosmetic dental procedures that enhances the beauty and appearance of your smile. Smile makeovers can correct any one of the problems below:
· Stained, discolored teeth can be whitened
· Missing teeth can be replaced
· Crooked teeth can be straightened
· Gaps between teeth can be closed
· Chipped, broken teeth can be repaired
· Gummy smiles can be contoured
Smile makeovers are usually created with the use of porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers and porcelain inlays/Onlays. These are cosmetic dental procedures that allow the dentist to dramatically change the length, width, color, and shape of your teeth.
