Ever thought about the impact that your smile has on your life? Think that changing the length, shape, or colour of your teeth, or the appearance of your lips or gums will make your smile more attractive? You needn’t settle for a smile that you’re not happy with.
With access to state-of-the-art dental technology and modern cosmetic treatments, Bayside Dental & Orthodontics possesses the necessary resources and expertise to completely transform the smiles of our patients in Airdrie Alberta with a dental makeover.
What is a cosmetic dental makeover?
A smile makeover consists of one or more dental, facial, or cosmetic rejuvenation procedures to enhance the look of your smile. It is a comprehensive cosmetic dentistry process that takes into consideration multiple factors, including your skin tone, teeth, gums, lips, facial appearance, and even hair colour in order to design your best smile.
Everyone has a unique appearance, and in the same way, we design each smile makeover to include your distinct features and desires. A dental makeover typically involves a number of procedures, but before any of the work begins, we will show you a smile preview of what your finished smile will look like.
Here are some of the changes you can expect with a smile makeover at Airdrie Bayside Dental:
Missing teeth – If you have lost one or more teeth due to decay, trauma, or some other reason, the space left behind can destroy your beautiful smile and lead to functional problems. During your makeover, we may replace the missing teeth with dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures, or adjust or replace the existing restoration.
Crooked teeth – We can straighten crooked teeth using traditional braces or clear invisible braces. Alternatively, we can cover the teeth with porcelain veneers if you’re looking for a faster solution with just a bit of preparation.
Chipped or broken teeth – There are a number of ways to repair chipped and broken teeth depending on the extent of the damage, with the most common options being porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers, and tooth bonding.
Gaps between teeth – A gap between your teeth can give your smile an uneven look. There are different ways to fix gaps, including using braces, composite resin bonding, and porcelain veneers.
Gummy smile – A gummy smile can be caused by short teeth or a gum line that is too low. It is generally easy to fix with our laser gum contouring.
Discoloured teeth – If you have yellow or stained teeth, there are a number of teeth whitening techniques that we can apply after a professional teeth cleaning. For immediate results, we recommend in-office professional teeth whitening, but we can also advise you on some good at-home whitening products.
Ageing – As your teeth wear down with age, the shape of your face may begin to change as well, causing you to look older. To fix this, we may recommend a teeth makeover procedure, such as orthodontics. If necessary, we may recommend oral maxillofacial surgery to fill out your face and cheeks for a more youthful look.
After treatment care
The lifespan of the changes achieved via a cosmetic dental makeover depend on well you take care of your mouth. Good oral hygiene, which includes daily brushing and flossing, avoiding sugary and acidic foods, and regular dental visits, should help you enjoy your new, beautiful smile for longer.
