A smile makeover is achieved by using one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures to greatly improve the overall appearance of your teeth and your smile. Since we notice another person’s smile immediately, misaligned, stained or chipped teeth can create a poor impression. A beautiful smile is not only aesthetically pleasing, but an important part of creating a positive first impression with others and feeling good about yourself.
In a smile makeover, the cosmetic dentist uses one or more common cosmetic procedures to correct problems with your teeth that affect the beauty of your smile. These procedures can include one or more of the following treatments.
Veneers – A veneer is a new front surface for a tooth, custom made from porcelain. Veneers are extremely versatile and can be used to align crowded or protruding teeth, close gaps or lighten tooth colour. Read More
White fillings - White fillings can be used to replace decay, just like silver fillings or replace old silver fillings for cosmetic reasons. Read More
Tooth coloured crowns – are used to restore severely broken teeth, they look every bit as natural, leaving no black line at the gum level. Crowns are extremely versatile and can be used to align crowded or protruding teeth, close gaps or lighten tooth colour. Read More

This really depends on what your goals are and what treatment is recommended in order to achieve your desires. Veneers will only take two dental appointments and teeth whitening only takes a couple of weeks - again it will depend on what treatments are suitable for you.
A smile makeover is working out what you don’t like, understanding your aspirations and looking at the techniques that can be used to create the smile you really want. Here at The Hampton Wick Dental Centre we will recommend a natural look that will be as kind to the teeth as possible and that will suit you for the long term rather than being fashionable right now.
