Transform Your Smile with a Smile Makeover: What You Need to Know

It involves a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures tailored to address specific dental issues and achieve the patient’s desired aesthetic goals.
Key components of a smile makeover often include:
Professional teeth whitening can remove stains and discoloration, leaving teeth several shades whiter.
Thin, custom-made porcelain shells are bonded to the front surfaces of teeth to correct imperfections like chips, gaps, and misalignment.
Crowns are used to restore damaged or decayed teeth and improve their shape, size, and strength.
If missing teeth are a concern, dental implants can replace them, providing a natural-looking and functional solution.
A tooth-coloured resin is applied to correct imperfections like chips, cracks, rotations or gaps.

Virtually invisible aligners are used to straighten teeth discreetly and comfortably, making them an attractive option for adults.
