Hundreds of thousands of people across the UK are dissatisfied with their dental appearance. The list of cosmetic dental concerns is long and anxiety-inducing for many: from crooked teeth to cavities and misalignments.
A teeth makeover or a “smile makeover” is an ideal means of addressing such concerns. It is a comprehensive multi-stage process that fixes a host of dental and oral problems while improving the overall appearance of the teeth and mouth.
In this article, we cover what a teeth makeover is, what its benefits are, how much it costs, and points you should keep in mind when opting for the procedure.
A teeth makeover involves several different dental procedures to remove damaged or problematic teeth and to affix more aesthetic crowns in their place. Because a full teeth makeover targets the complete appearance of the mouth, it may include one or more of the following procedures:
The patient’s personal aesthetic preference plays a significant role in deciding the extent and outcome of getting a teeth makeover. You can choose to target specific dental imperfections or opt for an all-around smile improvement.
Multiple factors could lead someone to be under-confident in their smile. Some are natural, while others could be caused due to injuries, earlier producers, or prolonged dental trauma. If you suffer from any of these symptoms to a reasonable extent, a teeth makeover can help you alleviate your discomfort:
A bright and confident smile is a huge part of your overall presentation, so it is natural to want the best smile that you could have. A full teeth makeover selectively removes and fixes each imperfection which inhibits you from displaying a wide and self-assured smile to the world.
The benefits of a teeth makeover are life-changing for most. Here are the top reasons you should opt for the procedure if you are unhappy with your dental health and appearance.
There is a misperception that a teeth makeover procedure is a purely cosmetic dental procedure. However, it also has a significant impact on your teeth and jaw function. For instance, if you suffer from loose or corroded teeth, a teeth makeover can align your teeth properly while giving them the required sharpness. This is extremely important to be able to eat and speak comfortably.
A teeth makeover entails creating a fully personalized smile that is perfect for your face structure, jaw size, teeth size, skin tone, etc. You can truly pamper yourself by giving this integral part of your appearance a glam-up. Choose every aspect of your teeth and gums to look symmetric, proportional, and picture-perfect.
It is a time-consuming and comprehensive process that involves a series of consultations, dental modeling, trials, and refitting. This is necessary to ensure you get the best outcomes possible based on your dream smile.
1. Initial assessment
The first consultation after you decide to go for a full teeth makeover is to determine the condition of your teeth, jaw, and gums. Your dentist will click a number of photographs and edit the changes you want to see. They will also base this initial simulation on the feasibility of each sub-procedure required in the full makeover.
2. 3D smile simulation
Once both you and the expert are on the same page about the final image of your desired smile, the digital model will be transferred to a 3D model. Creating a life-sized prototype is useful to view the modifications from different angles and make further tweaks if necessary.
3. Priming the teeth and fixing temporary crowns
Your dentist and technicians will perform pre-procedure tasks like cleaning, filing, removing teeth, etc. This is to prepare a clean slate to fit the new veneers and crowns.
Then, you will be fitted with a set of temporary veneers so that you “feel” your new smile in action. You get to wear the temporary teeth for a few days and decide if you like the way they look. Your dentist will make any adjustments in the final set if you experience discomfort or dissatisfaction with the temporary set.
4. Fixing the final veneers
When you are fully satisfied with the veneers’ shape, size, and color, your dentist will prepare the final set. This set of crowns is handcrafted by experts to fit your mouth effortlessly. It has the appearance of perfect natural teeth and will immediately help you get a million-watt smile.
Getting such a long-lasting and minutely detailed procedure done requires an investment of time and money. However, the experience of all our past clients proves that this investment truly pays off in the immense boost in confidence and attractiveness you get from a perfect smile.
Each patient has different requirements and underlying conditions that must be addressed on a fully customized basis. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for teeth makeovers. Therefore, the cost of the procedure can only be estimated after the initial consultation with your dentist.
Remember that these are the factors that determine the final cost:
