Why do so many people not fix their teeth so that they have smiles that increase their self-confidence by being beautiful and yet still natural? Ask yourself a few questions:
In most cases, with advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, you can get a smile makeover in one day. Great results can be achieved by using an experienced dentist or prosthodontic specialist and none of the above need apply! What is a new smile worth?
Obviously, each case is different and, without doubt, any appropriate smile makeover treatment options need to be individualised and costed.
Many people have teeth that are far from perfect. They may have a large number of fillings or be discoloured. Teeth may be worn down or misaligned (crooked). Their teeth may well be healthy; they just don’t look attractive and are negatively affecting the smile. Very often, the appearance of such teeth can be corrected with the use of some subtle reshaping and veneering applying tooth-coloured material onto the outside surfaces of teeth in what we call the smile zone. Two types of materials are commonly use, quartz composite and porcelain.
Whether you need to correct only two or eight or more front teeth – a smile makeover makeover in one day can be achieved – see the fee comparison:
Composite veneers are completed by the dentist in one same day appointment. Although they cannot be considered as permanent as porcelain, the treatment tends to be less invasive and is far less costly. They require more maintenance (polishing up during regular checkup/ hygiene visits), yet they can often last 4 to 8 years. Moreover they are easily repaired, should a bit chip off. Very often such treatment does not even need a local anesthetic.
See a few cases that were completed in composite:
A smile makeover with porcelain veneers is the optimal material, being much harder and longer lasting than standard composite. It requires a significantly greater financial investment as the restoration is made in a dental laboratory and consequently needs a second visit a week or two later.
