What Is a Smile Makeover?

You might have heard or read about people having smile makeovers and have probably admired their perfect teeth. But what does it exactly mean when someone has a smile makeover and do you have to spend a fortune to get movie star results?

smile-makeoverThe good news is that often you don’t need to spend a lot of money to greatly improve the appearance of your smile, but it all depends on whether the changes are purely cosmetic, or if you require more extensive reconstructive work to restore or replace missing teeth. There are quite a lot of treatments that can be used in a smile makeover and which include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, white fillings and inlays and onlays, as well as crowns, bridges and dental implants. You might even want to consider orthodontics to straighten out a wonky smile. Most smile makeovers use a combination of treatments to get the very best results. The idea of using several treatments is to improve your smile in a way that is conservative and combining teeth whitening with porcelain veneers is a very good example.

Most people want a whiter smile and one way to achieve this is through using multiple veneers to cover up all the teeth you can see when smiling and talking. However this might not be necessary and veneering just a few teeth that will truly benefit from this treatment, while whitening your remaining teeth can work equally as well and will be more cost-effective and more conservative. So how do you even begin to plan a smile makeover?
