A smile analysis is a process by which a cosmetic dentist determines the best combination of procedures to correct problems with your smile. He’ll evaluate your teeth—their color, alignment, and any damage they might have experienced—and recommend a course of treatment.
Evaluating Your Smile
If you’re unhappy with your smile and wish to have cosmetic treatment, the first step is to talk to a cosmetic dentist. You’ll discuss how your smile looks now, and how you’d like for it to look after treatment. Some problems you and your dentist might look for include:
- Discoloration and staining
- Chips, pits, or cracks
- A “gummy” smile
- Missing teeth
- Asymmetrical teeth
- Slight misalignment or small gaps
All these issues can be addressed with cosmetic dentistry. Some can be fixed with relatively simple procedures, while others require more extensive work. Your smile analysis will tell you the best approaches to take to give you the best possible results. During your consultation, you can also ask to see before and after pictures of previous clients. This will give you an idea of what your final results are likely to look like, and will help you decide if this is how you want your smile to look.
Your Smile Makeover
“Smile makeover” is a term often used to refer to a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures designed to give you your perfect smile. Your cosmetic dentist can combine several procedures into a single appointment, though some procedures are easier to combine than others. Ask about combining work into a comprehensive smile makeover, because this approach is likely to save you time and money.
Some procedures that might help give you your perfect smile include:
- Teeth whitening
- Tooth implants
- Cosmetic veneers
- Cosmetic crowns
- Gum contouring
- Inlays or onlays
You and your cosmetic dentist can decide together on the best combination of procedures to help you meet your goals. Once you’ve decided what you need to have done, you can schedule the appropriate appointments and be well on the way to a perfect smile. Contact us today at Kemp & Borovac Dentistry today!
