What Is A Smile Make Over?
What Can You Expect From The Smile Make-Over Experience?
Our professional dentists will first give you an assessment and listen to your needs. He or she will consider factors like the shape of your face, the colour of your skin and hair and your facial appearance. He or she will also look closely at your teeth, considering the shape, length, width and colour. He will also consider the correct tooth proportion to create the correct balance and harmony in your smile. From this assessment he or she will create a customised make over just for you.
Improving The Colour Of Your Teeth
If you have pre-existing amalgam fillings your dentists will recommend removing and replacing them. Tooth coloured resin is one of the more popular materials right now, as this substance blends in with the colour of your natural teeth.
Tooth whitening treatments will also be recommended, to improve the surface colour of your teeth. Whiter teeth are associated with youth whereas stained or yellow teeth tend to give a person an older appearance.
Closing Gaps And Spaces Between Teeth
Your dentist will make a recommendation for any teeth that are crooked or which create gaps in your mouth. Any cracks or slightly crooked teeth can be straightened with orthodontics or Invisalign braces. The outward appearance of your teeth can be improved with veneers. Any cracks, chips or uneven section can be improved with bonding.
Replacing Missing Teeth
Dental implants are the most effective long-term way to replace missing tooth in your mouth. Dental implants improve your bite and reduce your chances of developing tooth decay, particularly if you have one or two missing teeth. If you have a lot of teeth missing your dentist may also suggest a bridge or dentures as an option.
Making Cosmetic Improvements
Longer teeth also make us look younger. Reshaping or lengthening is a popular treatment for the front two teeth, and is usually performed with veneers or composite bonding.
If you have a gummy smile your dentist may recommend re-contouring for an improved and more confident smile. If your dentist thinks you need crown lengthening, he or she will refer you to a periodontist.
If your face is ageing or you would like to improve the appearance of its shape, maxillofacial surgery could be an option for you.
Your dentist will create a treatment plan based on your individual needs. Depending on the particulars of your treatment, you will probably need to return for a few sessions to complete the treatment.
Maintaining Dental Hygiene
Your newly made over smile will need to be maintained with good dental hygiene and regular visits to your dentist.

Frequently Asked Questions
How cosmetic dentistry is different from general dentistry?

Why should I see a cosmetic dentist?
If you want to give your smile a total overhaul, it’s crucial to schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist Epping. Depending on your unique needs and requirements, they will employ the right cosmetic treatment option such as veneers, tooth implants, bonding or tooth whitening to improve the appearance of your teeth and smile. If you have a gummy smile, your dentist may recommend re-contouring for an improved and more confident smile.
Are invisible braces effective for treating crooked teeth?
Yes! Invisible braces are suitable for patients with mild to moderately crooked teeth. This treatment option is considered to be safe and effective as it doesn’t cause discomfort like metal braces. Moreover, they will gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment and save you from bite issues. Your cosmetic dentist Epping will help you determine whether invisible braces or traditional braces will treat your condition.
What are veneers, and how they are beneficial?
Veneers are an effective and efficient option to improve the appearance of your smile and are placed over the front and side and biting edge of your teeth to cover chips, cracks, and discolouration. A trained cosmetic dentist Epping will help you explore your options for porcelain veneers. During the initial consultation, your dentist will determine if you’re a likely candidate for veneers. Then he will make impressions of your teeth to create a pair of veneers specific to your oral structure. He will place the veneers and slightly adjust the fit of the veneers, so they look and feel natural. Veneers are low maintenance, and scheduling regular dental check-ups help you resist cavities and stains.
Is cosmetic dentistry safe?
A cosmetic dentist Epping is a qualified and experienced professional who has undergone extensive training in cosmetic surgery and cosmetic dental procedures. They also work alongside medical professionals for facial reconstructions. So, the materials used by them for cosmetic dental procedures are tried and tested and have been approved by the Australian dental association for use. When you opt for cosmetic dentistry, your dentist will consider your medical history to come up with the right treatment option to avoid any issues or side-effects. Most of the cosmetic dental procedures are pain-free with sensitivity limited to your needs.
How much does cosmetic dentistry cost?
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving your oral health and facial appearance. So, depending on your individual needs, the cost of cosmetic dental procedures varies. Generally, it depends on the individual’s diagnosis, the dental practice, the type of treatments needed, and the materials used. Discuss your cost and payment options with a cosmetic dentist Epping during the initial appointment, and he may customise the plan to suit your budget.
