The process of a smile design begins with a consultation. After the detailed evaluation dentists generally take digital photos of their patients from different angles. Once they decide the best facial expression customized to their patients’ faces, they plan the treatment. There are several methods of smile design treatment.
What Are The Treatment Methods Of A Smile Design?
This treatment aims to fix the simple gaps and chips or solve other teeth problems using a tooth-colored resin material. The cost of bonding is less expensive than crowns and veneers. Because it is affordable and simple to apply at the same time, bonding is one of the most preferred dental procedures.
Teeth whitening is a very common procedure to brighten yellow or stained teeth. Dentists generally use peroxide-based gels to whiten the teeth. The results of the procedure are not permanent and last until the teeth lose color again.
Porcelain veneers are the perfect and most permanent solution to fix problems like:
Misaligned, uneven teeth
Teeth with gaps between them
Chipped or broken teeth
Orthodontic treatment corrects dental irregularities. This is a very effective treatment that helps straighten the patients’ teeth by using fixed or removable devices.
This is an alternative treatment to traditional metal braces of orthodontics. It uses plastic aligner trays to straighten teeth.
This method is performed to cure the diseased gums or fix the main gum concerns like a gummy smile, an uneven gum line or, receding gums. The treatment involves the removal of the excess tissue (gingivectomy) or, a gumgraft (gingivoplasty) and, sometimes a Botox.
Dental crowns are used to cover damaged or misshaped teeth. They are placed over an existing tooth.
Dental implants can be recommended when the patients have missing teeth. It is a surgical procedure that makes metal screws implanted into the jawbone to replace damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth.
How Long Does A Smile Makeover Take?
A smile design is a combination of different treatment procedures. The duration of the smile makeover varies depending on each patient’s private situation. Every single treatment takes time and the total treatment may take several months or, even a few years.
