Things you need to know before a Smile Makeover
Smile Makeover is the process of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dental procedures. Procedures often combined for a smile makeover include:
Teeth whitening: Removes stains and discolorations making teeth white, bright and radiant
Veneers: Improve shape, color, and position of teeth making them look natural and healthy
Invisalign: Straightens and aligns teeth that are crooked and overlapping. Orthodontic or Maxillofacial surgery also aid in correcting an unshapely, aging face allowing fuller lips, cheeks & smile
Cosmetic bonding: Improves the appearance of uneven, chipped or cracked teeth
Gum reshaping: Improves aesthetics by evening out and re-contouring a gummy smile
A smile makeover can thus address a broad range of cosmetic and structural dental imperfections simultaneously, such as:
- Discoloration of teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Cracked and chipped teeth
- Gummy Smiles
- Uneven gum line
- Eroded or disproportionate teeth

How it works?
It all begins with what you like and dislike about your smile! Despite having sound oral hygiene and no evident structural teeth problems, one can have issues with their smile.
Understanding if you can get a Smile Makeover
Your Dentist will determine whether you are a suitable patient for smile makeover after a complete oral health examination. It is only after, that a treatment plan is designed on the basis of which the Smile Makeover procedure is initiated.
X-rays & Pictures
Your dentist might take a combination of X-rays and pictures of your teeth and jaws using Traditional Film X-rays, Panoramic X-rays, Digital X-rays, and intraoral cameras.
Your dentist will explain the various procedures which may be included based on your expectations from the Smile Makeover. Together, you will decide which treatments best suit your needs and goals.
Maintaining your results
It is advisable to visit your dentist periodically to maintain your smile makeover. Whitening may have to be repeated to maintain brightness. Veneers may chip or break over time and may need a replacement. Composite bondings may stain and require enhancement, and Crowns typically have a life of 10-15 years. Avoid highly abrasive toothpaste and tooth brushing habits that can scratch the surface of restorations
