If you have a number of issues with your smile, such as those caused by trauma or habits such as teeth grinding, you might be a candidate for a full smile makeover. At Western Prosthodontic Center in West Perth, WA, our prosthodontist Dr Bradley Shepherd has extensive education and experience in complex cases requiring a full smile makeover.
A full smile makeover is the process of improving the form and function of the smile with cosmetic dentistry procedures such as:
- Dental implants
- Tooth-coloured fillings
- Cosmetic bonding
- Dental crowns
- Teeth whitening
The Treatments Often Included in a Smile Makeover
Porcelain veneers. If you admire the smile of your favourite actor or actress, chances are good he or she has had a bit of help from their dentist, including the use of porcelain veneers. Veneers hide dental issues such as teeth that are stained, gapped, chipped or misaligned.
Dental implants. When there is a space in your mouth, your other teeth will gradually shift to fill it in, leading to problems with the bite. Chewing and speaking can also be more difficult when one or more teeth are missing. Dental implants are considered the best option for replacing missing teeth, and they can protect your oral health.
Cosmetic bonding. The same composite material that is used for tooth-coloured fillings can also be used for cosmetic bonding. With this process, gapped or chipped teeth can be fixed quickly and easily.
Dental crowns. One of the most common uses for dental crowns is to strengthen a tooth that has been fractured by a sizeable dental filling. Crowns are also used cosmetically to cover up a tooth that is oddly shaped or stained.
Teeth whitening. Both lifestyle choices and the ageing process can make our teeth more yellow than white. Professional teeth whitening in our dental surgery can turn your smile several shades whiter in just an hour in the dental chair.
