Your smile is a powerful tool that can be used to brighten someone's day and leave a lasting impression. However, if you're dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth, this may impact your willingness to share your smile with those around you. If this sounds like you then you may be looking for a dentist in Tower Hill who can help you explore a solution. Here at London City Dentists we can offer our patients smile makeovers.
What is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a treatment plan which can combine various cosmetic and/or restorative dental treatments to transform the appearance of your smile. It is tailored to your personal needs and goals, with the aim of achieving a more attractive smile that suits your facial features.
The process generally starts by implementing a consultation with our dentist in Tower Hill, who will assess your oral health through examination, discuss your concerns, and create a personalised treatment plan with you. The plan may involve one or more treatments, taking into account factors such as your tooth colour, gum health, facial structure and alignment.
Smile makeovers are fast becoming a popular way to enhance the aesthetics of a smile. It is less commonly known that they can also provide functional benefits, such as improved chewing ability and bite alignment.
Why change the aesthetics of your smile?
There are several reasons why patients may seek to transform the aesthetics of their smile. Over time, teeth can become stained or discoloured due to ageing, certain medications, tobacco use, or consuming substances like coffee or red wine which can cause staining.
Misaligned teeth can affect your smile's symmetry and overall appearance. By opting for teeth straightening methods or porcelain veneers (for mild misalignment) at our dentist in Tower Hill, you can achieve a straighter smile.
Accidents, teeth grinding, or poor oral habits can lead to chipped, cracked, or damaged teeth. When these are visible at the front of your mouth you may feel conscious of them and try to hide them when you smile. An excessive or uneven gum line can overshadow your teeth and make your smile appear disproportionate. Gaps due to missing teeth can be a source of self-consciousness. Smile makeovers can offer solutions like dental implants, bridges, or dentures to fill in the gaps and restore your smile.
Treatments for smile makeovers
One of the most popular and straightforward treatments, teeth whitening, can noticeably enhance your smile's brightness and remove stains or discolouration. Porcelain veneers can also be used to help brighten your smile. These are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, concealing imperfections such as chips, stains, cracks and mild misalignment. Veneers can provide a natural-looking, long-lasting solution.
Dental implants offer a durable and natural-looking solution for missing teeth and can be utilised as a component of a smile makeover to restore lost dentition. Invisalign aligners can be used to correct misaligned teeth, overcrowding, or gaps, resulting in a straighter smile and improved bite.
