Smile Design Treatment is a cosmetic treatment that focuses on improving the appearance of your smile through certain procedures such as dental veneers, composite bonding, teeth whitening and tooth implant. People suffering from dental problems like tooth decaying, tooth loosening, stains, and bacterial plaque usually opt for this makeover treatment. Some factors taken into consideration for this treatment include: facial appearance and skin tone, gum tissues and lips.
Some aspects that the smile design treatment encounters are: Tooth color- discolored or stained tooth may make you look aged and dull, while a well-shaped bright set of teeth leaves you with a perfect smile; Alignment and spacing- uneven broken, overlapping teeth or teeth which have gaps in between can be evenly aligned and straightened with the help of improved veneers; Missing tooth- in case of a missing or cracked tooth, the treatment provides tooth implantation which leaves you with a confident smile; Fuller lips, smile and cheeks- the treatment not only focuses on your teeth, but also makes your lips and cheek look good so that you get a perfect makeover look; Tooth proportion and smile line- in order to make your smile look flawless, the orthodontist or cosmetic surgeon would examine if your teeth are in correct proportion, or the imaginary smile line following the edges of your upper lips is in proportion with the curve of your lower lips.
Alignment and Spacing: Teeth that are crooked, overlapping or have gaps between them can be straightened and aligned when necessary through orthodontics or Invisalign and improved with veneers.
Missing Teeth: One or more missing teeth can negatively affect the appearance of your smile – as well as affect your bite and increase your risk for tooth decay – making replacement an integral part of oral health and facial esthetics. Missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants, bridges or partial dentures.
Harmony and Balance: Uneven, chipped and cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded for an improved appearance, and a gummy smile can be re-contoured to help improve the overall look of the smile.
Fuller Lips, Smile and Cheeks: An unshapely or aging face can be improved or rejuvenated with certain procedures in the smile makeover category, including orthodontics and/or oral maxillofacial surgery.
Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance.
Spaced teeth Fraenula are little strings of tissue found underneath the tongue, inside the cheeks near the back teeth, and under the top lip.
