The Premier Modbury Medical and Dental – Whilst some people are content with their smile, there are also people who are unhappy and dislike their smile. This unhappiness, of course, can have devastating consequences on how people feel about themselves and behave around others.
However, this feeling of unhappiness is not something a dental facelift or smile makeover can’t fix.
With a dental facelift, a smile that has always caused an inward frown can be improved. A smile makeover usually requires the application of one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures. These include white fillings, teeth whitening, veneers, Lumineers, dental caps, crowns or bridges.
People badly in need of tooth restoration due to chipped, cracked, or discoloured teeth can benefit from a smile makeover. It will not only improve a person’s smile but also restore the muscles that control jaw movement to their natural position.
And since dental facelifts focus on the aesthetics of dentistry, they may take into consideration every patient’s hair colour, facial features and skin tone, as well as the appearance of the teeth, gum tissue and lips.
A dental facelift or smile makeover can resolve or improve concerns involving one or some of the following:
- Teeth alignment
- Colour of the teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Misaligned teeth
- Missing teeth
- Damaged, cracked, chipped or uneven teeth
- Aging or unattractive features
- Short, long or disproportionate teeth
Before a smile makeover treatment or dental facelift is performed, the dentist must assess the patient’s oral health status first. This includes examining the teeth, gums, underlying support structure and bite or occlusion to determine if the patient is a good candidate for the procedure.
Cosmetic dentists sometimes use imaging software designed to give their patient an idea of how they would look after their smile makeover is complete.
The cost of a smile makeover or dental facelift depends primarily on which treatments are necessary to achieve the patient’s goals.
