Smile Makeover


What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a comprehensive cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to improve the appearance of your smile. It combines various treatments such as teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges, and orthodontics to address issues like discoloration, misalignment, gaps, and missing teeth. The goal is to create a beautiful, harmonious smile that enhances your overall facial aesthetics and boosts your confidence.

How is the Smile Makeover Procedure Done?

Before starting a smile makeover, the patient undergoes a detailed dental examination. The dentist determines the patient’s needs and plans the treatment. The procedure may involve shaping the front surfaces of the teeth and preparing them for treatments like veneers or crowns. Gums are numbed to reduce any pain during the procedure. Measurements are taken, and custom treatments are prepared. The entire process typically takes a few sessions, and at the end, patients achieve a new, aesthetically pleasing smile.

Who is Suitable for this Treatment?

• Individuals over 18 years of age

• Those who cannot achieve desired whiteness due to discoloration

• Individuals with mild tooth misalignment

• People with gaps in their teeth

• Those seeking an aesthetic and ideal smile

• Individuals with short teeth due to genetic factors or other reasons

• For the treatment of worn, broken, or cracked teeth

Who is Not Suitable for this Treatment?

• Individuals with an underbite

• People with aggressive teeth grinding habits

• Those with excessively misaligned teeth

• Individuals with insufficient space for veneers due to decay or fractures

• Patients with fluorosis causing white lines, gray spots, pits, or black spots on the teeth

• Those with diseases that weaken enamel

Advantages of Smile Makeover:

• Teeth are minimally abraded and visible results are achieved in a short time.

• It is a very comfortable process for patients.

• The color of the teeth is very close to natural with excellent light transmittance.

• A good fit between teeth and gums is achieved.

• It is not affected by factors such as smoking, tea, coffee, and does not change color.

Disadvantages of Smile Makeover:

• The process requires a lot of precision and experience, from measurement to bonding the veneers.

• It is more expensive than other treatment methods.

• Though rare, porcelain veneers may detach from the tooth. This can usually be corrected by re-bonding.

They are not affected by the coloration of tea, coffee, and food, and they retain their color for a long time.

What is the lifespan of laminate veneers?

They can last a lifetime as long as they are not subjected to excessive force.
