Smile Makeover: Reinvent Your Smile

January 30, 2019

Cosmetic dentistry is designed to give you a smile makeover. There are different procedures that clean up your grin, such as composite bonding, dental implants, and teeth whitening. At SmileUp Dentistry we provide quality care for a smile makeover.

The Smile Makeover Preview

Alignment and Spacing

If teeth are overlapping one another or crooked we find a game-plan to fix that up. We can straighten them with Invisalign or other orthodontics and clean them up with veneers.

Fuller Lips, Smile, and Cheeks

Aging and unshapely faces can really affect how your grin comes across. There are plenty of cosmetic dentistry services that can fix that such as orthodontics or oral/maxillofacial surgery.

Harmony and Balance

If your smile is gummy we can re-contour it to give balance to your smile, and if teeth are chipped or broken or cracked it is easy to cosmetically bond them.

Missing Teeth

Sometimes people can be most concerned over the teeth they don’t have. Missing or broken teeth can be replaced with implants, bridges, or partial dentures.

Tooth Color

Many fillings are different colors like silver or amalgam. We can switch cover that ever with a natural colored composite material. Dulled or stained teeth might require a bit of upkeep.

At SmileUp Dentistry we know how to find the appropriate balance of color and shine to keep your smile looking white but natural.

The Aesthetic Components Of A Smile Makeover

Smile Line

The smile line follows your upper teeth and should align with your lower lip. This can help decide the appropriate length of new teeth.

Tooth Length

Long teeth make someone look younger, as older teeth are usually worn down or shorter. Teeth length can change and affect overall appearance so it’s important to find what’s best.

Tooth Proportions

Teeth being in proportion to one another can give a nicer smile. Generally, that means the two front teeth are the largest.

Some Precautions

To maintain your results there must be proper oral and hygiene care. Regular cleanings, flossing, and checkups can help keep your teeth looking great. Use non-abrasive toothpaste so that they won’t scratch any surfaces. No mouthwash is needed otherwise it can wear away at composites.

Treatment is generally different with every cosmetic dentist and how much you want to change. If you need a lot of oral care to get your smile ready that can come into account as well.

Food and Drinks to Limit or Avoid

To keep from staining your new smile then limit your soda, coffee, or tea intake. Excessive alcohol drinking can wear away teeth as well.
