What a Smile Makeover Can Do For You
A Smile Makeover comprises of a serious of treatments to replace, repair and restore your smile:
The best way to replace your teeth is with dental implants. These are titanium screws surgically inserted into your jawbone. Over a period of months—usually 3 to 6, but it depends on the individual—your jawbone grows around the implant to create a strong and sturdy artificial tooth root. This process is known as Osseointegration and there are a number of factors that influence the healing time:
- Whether the implant is inserted into the upper or lower jaw
- Your oral health
- Your overall health
- Your body’s natural ability to heal
Once your jawbone has healed around the implant, an implant crown or bridge will be attached for a whole-tooth restoration. Implant dentistry is the tooth restoration that replaces the whole tooth: dental bridges on their own only replace the top half (crown) of the tooth.
A number of options exist for repairing teeth:
If your teeth have only minimal chips and cracks, dental veneers are a great option. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. But not all your teeth. Veneers are only bonded to the teeth in your smile zone: this is literally the front 6 upper and lower teeth that are visible when you smile.
It takes two appointments for veneers: the first is when the mounds are taken and then your teeth prepared and covered with temporary veneers. On your second visit, the temporary veneers are taken on and the permanent ones bonded to the front of your teeth.
If looked after properly, veneers can last up to ten years.
Another option for repairing teeth is dental crowns
Dental crowns are strong porcelain caps that cover a broken, decayed or damaged tooth and restore function. Fabricated from porcelain, dental crowns match the shade and colour of your natural teeth.
They take two appointments to fabricate. The first appointment is when your tooth is shaped and a temporary crown is attached. The next appointment is where the temporary crown is removed and the more permanent crown bonded in place.
Like porcelain veneers, dental crowns—if looked after properly—can last up to ten years.
