Smile Makeover Treatments That’ll Give You a Beautiful Smile

Posted on: September 16, 2018

A smile makeover is a process through which the appearance of a person's smile is improved. If you are self-conscious about your smile, there are different types of treatments that can be used to help you feel more confident when smiling.

Here are the different types of treatments commonly used for smile makeovers:

Smile makeover treatments

1. Dental veneers

A dental veneer is a thin shell of tooth-colored porcelain that is put over the front surface of a tooth to correct any dental issue and ultimately improve the appearance of the person's smile. It helps solve a number of dental problems, including uneven tooth alignment, worn tooth enamel, spacing, discoloration and cracks. It is a simple procedure with little risk of complications.

2. Dental bonding

Dental bonding is a process through which a composite resin is permanently attached to a tooth using high-intensity curing light. It is further divided into two parts, direct composite bonding and adhesive bonding.

Direct composite bonding: During this type of treatment, dentists use tooth-colored composites to fill the cavities, close gaps, repair cracks or chips and build edges of teeth that are worn down. The composite is placed on or in the teeth.

Adhesive bonding: During the treatment, the dentist attaches the restorations to the teeth using adhesive, a bonding agent, etchant and a high-intensity curing light. This type of treatment is used for porcelain veneers, esthetic and metal-free crowns, bridges and onlays/inlays.

3. Dental implants

Artificial tooth roots that are used to support restorations for missing teeth are called dental implants. Missing tooth or teeth can affect a person in negative ways, so implants are used to replace missing teeth and restore a person's confidence and chewing capability.

Dental implants are considered to be one of the best ways to replace a missing tooth.
