A smile makeover involves facial rejuvenation, dental or cosmetic procedures to improve your smile. A smile makeover is an individual choice. One smile makeover may be different to another.
Whatever reason you may have to undergo a smile makeover, there are various cosmetic dentistry options for you to choose from to improve your smile:
• Repair of broken or chipped tooth – the treatment options include porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding and porcelain crowns. The extent of the damage of your teeth will determine the kind of treatment that you will need.
• Straightening of crooked teeth – conventional orthodontics or Invisalign aligners or braces are recommended treatment for crooked or misalign teeth. For fast solution to this type of tooth problem, porcelain veneers may be considered.
• Replacement of missing teeth – a smile makeover may involve replacing existing restorations. This can be done by dental implants, denture or dental bridge.
• Closing gaps between teeth – this can be remedied with porcelain veneers such as da Vinci or Lumineers. Your dentist may also recommend the use of orthodontics to move your teeth and close the gaps. Some orthodontic appliances include Invisalign braces, Damon braces, lingual braces or Inman aligner.
A complete oral and facial examination must be carried out prior to determining a course of action. A full mouth X-ray exam will be performed, along with a periodontal charting, and bite registration. Gingivitis/periodontitis and bite discrepancies should be addressed prior to starting a smile makeover. If other teeth in the mouth have problems, these problems should also be addressed.

Your dentist, however, will make sure that you know what needs to be done to your mouth to make sure that is it healthy.
