Smile makeovers “Smile design” is essentially a Smile “makeovers” or dental “face lift”. It can involve the simple removal of gum tissue to eliminate a gummy smile or in more complicated cases removal of gum and bone and placement of metal free crowns and / or veneers to completely redesign a smile.
Sometimes more extensive treatment is required on bruxists (people who grind their teeth) in order to make the teeth longer and to increase the height of the face and to prevent further tooth tissue loss.

What Does a Smile Makeover Include?
Some aspects of your smile that your cosmetic dentist will review with you include the following:
Silver or amalgam dental fillings can be replaced with natural, tooth-colored composite restorations, while teeth whitening can improve the color of stained or dulled teeth. Tooth color and shading are important considerations during the evaluation of and preparation for various procedures, including porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, composite bonding and dental implants.
Alignment and Spacing:
Teeth that are crooked, overlapping or have gaps between them can be straightened and aligned when necessary through orthodontics or Invisalign® and improved with veneers.
One or more missing teeth can negatively affect the appearance of your smile, as well as affect your bite and increase your risk for tooth decay, making replacement an integral part of oral health and facial esthetics. Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants, bridges or partial dentures.
Harmony and Balance:
Uneven, chipped and cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded for an improved appearance, and a gummy smile can be re-contoured to help improve the overall look of your smile.
Veneers can be used to give more lip support, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the mouth area. Botox and fillers help to rectify crooked smiles, make thin lips fuller and to lower gummy smile lines.
Fillers can erase lines around the mouth which can age even the whitest of smiles. Book your consultation now with our prosthodontist Dr Carolyn Carbasse (specialist in smile makeovers)..
