Our smile makeover treatments
Every patient requires a different treatment to make his smile a beautiful one. The following are the treatments that are offered for smile makeovers.
Composite bonding: If your teeth are chipped, fractured or discoloured, then composite bonding can restore your smile. Composite bonding can enhance your smile by correcting existing imperfections, including slightly crooked teeth as well as closing gaps.
Dental Alignment: Orthodontic treatment corrects the appearance of misaligned teeth. When your teeth are aligned correctly, you can enjoy better chewing function, better oral hygiene, and better oral health. Standard teeth alignment options include traditional fixed braces or clear removable aligners.
Laser Gum Contouring: Laser technology can improve your smile quickly and with minimal discomfort. If you have too much visible gum tissue when you smile, your teeth may appear smaller. Laser gum contouring is a procedure that reshapes the gums, revealing more of the tooth surface for a more balanced smile.
Veneers and Crowns: Porcelain veneers are bonded to the front surface of the teeth to enhance your smile. Crowns act like a hat that covers the whole of the damaged tooth, restoring the shape, function, and size.
Dental Implants: Replacing missing teeth makes your smile more attractive and prevents bone loss that can change the appearance of your face over time. It also prevents the displacement of adjacent teeth and restores full bite function. So, dental implants are the best option for this purpose.
Professional Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is the most popular smile makeover procedure as it produces impressive results. Professional whitening quickly and effectively removes discolouration and whitens teeth. You can get treatment at the dentist’s office or buy a home kit to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home.
