Flashing someone a smile can feel good. It can evoke feelings of happiness, for both you and the lucky
recipient. Not to mention the effect a smile can have when it comes to creating first impressions.
So, if a smile can hold such power, it’s important to be happy with it.
What would you change
about your smile?
Sometimes, there are little details we’d like to address regarding our appearance and
making these changes can help us feel more comfortable and confident.
Discoloured teeth, wonky and misaligned teeth, missing teeth or chips, and gaps are the
type of complaints that cosmetic dentistry can fix.
By collaborating with your dentist, you’ll discuss your concerns and what procedures are
available to you to achieve the results you want. The outcome should be a customised
smile makeover that you’re happy to show off in photos with mates, for professional
purposes, or simply for your own enjoyment.
In technical terms, what is
Cosmetic dentistry is a bit of an umbrella phrase that refers to a whole range
of treatments like:
- Veneers and crowns to disguise chipped, damaged, discoloured
or uneven teeth
- Composite bonding for contouring and reshaping
- Dental implants to replace missing teeth
- Teeth whitening to even out colour.
All of them focus on the aesthetics of your smile, bite, teeth and gums. Depending on
the type of work you want or need, it can range from full mouth reconstruction to
smaller touch ups. Some treatments can be completed in a single, short session,
whereas others may take as long as a whole Netflix boxset!
Choosing to have
There are many personal reasons why someone may choose to have a smile
makeover. If you’re considering any kind of cosmetic dentistry, your first step is to
check out some before and after case studies. This gives you the opportunity to
see the dentist’s previous work and make sure they are the right professional to
help you achieve the look you want.
If satisfied with what you see, book an appointment. They will discuss the
treatments available to you, let you know how long the procedure will take, and
explain costs and payment methods.
Afterwards, your dentist will let you know how to maintain your teeth and oral
health so the effects of the cosmetic procedure last as long as possible.
