Sunbury dentist offer advice about how to get a smile makeover

If you can makeover your house and your wardrobe, why can’t you do the same for your smile? After all, your smile can say a lot more about you than your home or your clothes and it goes with you everywhere.

A smile makeover can improve the appearance of your smile by using one or more cosmetic dental processes such as veneers, composite bonding, dental implants and teeth whitening. They can be customized according to your preferences taking into consideration your facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, teeth and lips.

Your Sunbury dentist will be able to review your preferences with you and make suggestions on how to improve your smile by altering the balance, colour and alignment of your existing teeth. Certain orthodontic treatments can also improve your profile and the shape of your cheeks and lips.

Any existing damage to teeth such as chips can be repaired using a process called bonding, cavities and cracks can be filled with the latest enamel coloured fillings (old silver fillings can be replaced) and stained teeth can be bleached to look as good as new.

Dentists will use the latest technology including intraoral cameras to take images of the teeth so that they can evaluate the needs of the patient on a tooth-by-tooth basis. They can also carry out laser gum contouring to assure an even and symmetrical gum covering of teeth. Jaw racking and bite analysis systems assess the makeover process to ensure all procedures are working and that the bite is in full alignment for comfort and wear.

Smile makeovers can be costly depending on the amount of work needed but a Sunbury dentist will be able to assess which treatments will work best for you to make sure you are completely satisfied. And after all, can you really put a price on a smile?
