Aesthetic Dentistry | Smile Makeovers
Do you sometimes look into the mirror and wish you could change the way your smile looks? You are not alone in feeling that way - Even people with good dental hygiene and structurally sound teeth can be dissatisfied with certain elements of their smiles. Discoloration, misshapen teeth, and minor orthodontic issues can affect a person's appearance and self-confidence. Fortunately, we at Elements Dental will be able to help you - by working with you to determine the ideal solution in the form of a fully customized smile makeover treatment plan!
What Are Smile Makeovers?
A smile makeover is a process available in Singapore, with the aim of improving the appearance of the smile through one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures. These procedures include but are not limited to: veneers, composite bonding, teeth straightening, dental implants and teeth whitening. Some of the components taken into consideration include your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth (color, width, length, shape and tooth display), gum tissue and lips.
Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons and customized according to your unique considerations. Just as there are no two smiles that are exactly alike, there are no two smile makeovers that are one and the same.
What Can I Expect During A Smile Makeover?
During your consultation, we will work with you to understand the aspects of your smile that you would like to improve. Some of the components are as follows:
- Tooth Length - Aging produces wear and tear that often results in shorter teeth, and a gummy smile also can make teeth appear shorter. Longer teeth tends to result in a more youthful look. Treatment for shorter teeth may include reshaping and lengthening with composite bonding or porcelain veneers. If you have a gummy smile, we may recommend treatment to modify the gum line and lengthen the appearance of the teeth using laser dentistry procedures.
- Smile Line - The smile line is a line that follows the edges of your upper teeth from side to side, which ideally should be the same as the curve of your lower lip when you smile. This standard point of reference may be used to help determine how long your new teeth should be.
- Tooth Proportions - Most people recognise a pleasing smile as one in which the two central front teeth are dominant and have a particular width-to-length ratio. We will examine your teeth to determine if they are in correct proportion with each other.
- Tooth Texture and Characterization
Maintaining Your Results
Cosmetic dentistry procedures require regular oral hygiene care and may require maintenance over time. For example, teeth whitening must be repeated on occasion in order to maintain brightness. The materials chosen by your dentist also impact the longevity of your smile makeover. It is advisable that you understand your treatment plan and the materials used, so that you can maintain the optimum look of your teeth.
Your oral health will be evaluated before we develop a plan for your smile makeover. A comprehensive evaluation of your teeth, gums, underlying support structure and bite (occlusion) will be done to determine candidacy for a smile makeover. Any oral health problems – such as a misaligned bite (malocclusion) or gum disease – will need to be taken care of first before proceeding with aesthetic treatments.
Smile Makeovers in Singapore
Because each smile makeover is unique in its scope, the cost of a smile makeover, here in Singapore or anywhere in the world, can vary significantly from patient to patient. The final total of your makeover will depend on numerous factors. We will take into account the shape of your face and the dimensions of your teeth when designing your smile makeover to make sure the results complement the overall harmony of your facial features. When combined, these procedures can rejuvenate your smile with long-lasting, brilliant results.
