Your smile makeover is unique, because there is no other smile quite like yours! Since features and needs vary from patient to patient, the procedures that contribute to a comprehensive makeover vary dramatically.
Bring your goals to a consultation with one of Esquire Dental Centres doctors. For instance, some patients may want to restore their teeth to a natural shade, while others may want to achieve a dramatically whiter smile. While there are some variations with regard to each patient’s personal preference for cosmetic improvement, there are basic components of a smile that is noticed for the right reason.
It’s been said the most coveted faces are symmetrical. The left side of the face mirrors the right. The same notion applies to your teeth. A smile that appears asymmetrical may have gaps or crowding, or chips can make a tooth on one side of the face look bigger or smaller than its smooth counterpart on the other side.
The dental team can help you get a more even and symmetrical appearance with dental bonding, veneers, or cosmetic alternatives to traditional braces like Invisalign.
Your teeth started as a clean slate. Over time, enamel thins out and reveals the darker, yellow dentin layer underneath. The cumulative effects of a coffee or smoking habit can also show up as stains, which detract from the youthful colour and lustre of your teeth. Discolouration can be treated safely, effectively, and efficiently with professional whitening and bleaching treatments.
Are you living with stubborn stains that are resistant to professional whitening? The doctors may recommend bonding or veneers to restore the brilliance of your teeth, so you’ll look younger instantly.
Even if good teeth are “in the genes” or you’ve never missed a cleaning or dental appointment, the normal wear and tear from chewing and everyday function can affect your teeth. The surface of your teeth can appear overly polished, even shiny, as you get older.
Years of consuming acidic foods and drinks or even the use of dental products like abrasive toothpastes can thin the tooth’s protective enamel, which takes natural ridges with it. Veneers and bonding can once again come to the rescue to smooth these flaws, and to reshape teeth to achieve a more uniform appearance.
Many desirable characteristics, such as symmetry, can also be achieved with procedures that restore your oral health and tooth function. For example, the Esquire Dental Centres team may suggest white cosmetic fillings, inlays, onlays or partial crowns, full-coverage porcelain crowns, or even tooth replacement options such as crowns or dentures supported by dental implants.
Be it a single procedure or many combined treatments, experience firsthand how a smile makeover can dramatically improve your appearance and the quality of your life.
