How a Dental Makeover Can Give Your Smile a Fresh Start in 2024
The beginning of a new year is full of hope and promise. How are your resolutions shaping up? Do you want to feel more confident, smile more freely, and laugh more often? At Smile Montreal in Westmount, QC, some of our patients are planning to make those goals a reality with cosmetic dentistry. In this blog post, we’ll explore some ways a dental makeover can give you a fresh start in 2024.
Combining Treatments for a Custom Makeover
The term smile makeover simply refers to combining one or more cosmetic services into a custom treatment plan. We’ll discuss popular options in more depth below, but this approach generally offers several benefits:
- More streamlined care
- More cohesive, complementary effects
- An ability to address several concerns at once
Plus, since we pride ourselves on offering a robust suite of services under one roof, you can benefit from visiting fewer offices. That means less driving, less paperwork, less time getting to know a new team and, more importantly, greater continuity of care. Smile makeovers at our practice allow us to hold every stage of your treatment to the same high standards our patients have come to expect. So what should you consider?
Teeth Whitening to Brighten Dull Teeth
From chilly mornings warmed by coffee and tea to red wine during holiday meals, our teeth often look especially stained by the end of the year.
Professional teeth whitening can brighten darkened teeth by several shades in just one appointment. The procedure makes a great impact on its own. Combining it with other cosmetic procedures, however, can have a truly dazzling impact.
We’re mentioning teeth whitening first because it’s often the preliminary treatment we’ll recommend for a makeover plan. The materials used to make restorations such as dental crowns, bridges, and veneers do not respond to bleaching. So if you want a luminous end result, we often recommend lightening the shade of your enamel first so those restorations can be designed to match.
Invisalign® to Straighten Crooked Teeth
Maybe you’ve never had the straight teeth you’ve always wanted or maybe the effects of your decades-old orthodontic treatment have become compromised over time. Either way, adult orthodontics are an increasingly popular solution.
Advancements in orthodontics mean that clear aligners can treat nearly all the same types of concerns as braces – even overbites and underbites. Invisalign is incredibly discreet and the trays are removable. This means you can continue to enjoy an unrestricted diet and brush and floss like you normally do.
Porcelain Veneers to Mask Imperfections
If you’d prefer a quicker fix for misalignment, consider porcelain veneers. These thin shells can mask crooked or gapped teeth in as little as two appointments. Veneers can also hide:
- Staining that doesn’t respond to whitening
- Chipped teeth
- Short or worn-looking teeth
- Small or irregularly shaped teeth
Another common complaint we hear at our Westmount office is a gummy smile. We offer gum contouring to remove small amounts of tissue and raise the gumline. Once we have made space and essentially lengthened the tooth’s crown, we can place a porcelain veneer for a natural-looking result.
