Smile Makeover Overview

By RealSelf
A smile makeover is a comprehensive design with one or more dental procedures or surgeries to enhance the hard and soft tissues of the smile for maximum esthetics in harmony with an individual's face and personality.
To get a complete smile makeover, you can take advantage of several cosmetic dentistry treatments.  6 popular smile make over procedures include:
1. Teeth Whitening
The latest technology in whitening offers in-office and at-home treatments designed to brighten your smile. (Whitening will work on natural teeth. It will not work on teeth restored with bonding, crowns or bridges)
2. Enamel Microabrasion (aka Tooth Reshaping)
Minor recontouring of teeth may result in major improvements in your smile.
3. Orthodontics
Moving your teeth to reduce crowding or spaces may be the answer to your goal of a more beautiful smile. Thanks to recent technology, you can use invisible braces (like Invisalign) instead of the metal kind.
4. Gum Lift
A simple solution to a gummy smile.
5. Porcelain Veneers
One solution to correct a variety of problems. Porcelain veneers will instantly whiten, straighten, and lengthen teeth. A smile makeover with porcelain veneers allows you to achieve your dream smile in an instant.
6. Bonding
Bonding is used to close gaps and fix other minor imperfections in one visit.
