Smile Design Studio is the new utopia for teeth. I’ve met Miyuki the dental hygienist for my first scrub & polish and am now set to hit the streets. THANK YOU VICKY FOR ‘THE REMARKABLE’ START TO FINISH SERVICE.
A Smile Makeover is a form of Cosmetic dentistry that refers to dental work that improves the appearance (though not necessarily the function) of a person's teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.
All cosmetic dentistry treatments improve the appearance of an individual's teeth. Some can also restore function and/or improve oral health as well. Cosmetic dentistry treatments include:
A relatively inexpensive way to brighten your smile, whitening teeth can be accomplished at home or in the dentist's chair. There are many products and methods from which to choose.
A tooth-colored composite resin attached to the teeth can improve the appearance and strength of chipped teeth. These procedures require very little preparation (drilling) of the tooth.
Designed to substitute for tooth enamel, veneers are hard, thin shells of tooth-colored material that can mask a variety of dental imperfections.
Heavily damaged teeth can be covered with natural-looking porcelain crowns, which replace more natural tooth structure than veneers.
A missing tooth can be replaced with porcelain bridgework that is attached to the natural teeth on either side of the space. Usually made of titanium, an implant is used to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. The implant is fitted with a crown to create a natural-looking replacement for the entire tooth.
Inlays & Onlays
In certain cases, fillings can be fabricated from porcelain or composite materials in a dental laboratory to more closely match the color of a tooth.
Gone are the days when a filling has to be obvious and unsightly. Tooth-colored fillings are barely noticeable.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Invisalign straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. They gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.
Minor surgery can reshape gum tissue to give it a more leveled appearance.
Tooth Contouring & Reshaping
Cosmetic dentists can use a drill or laser to smooth out or reshape teeth.
