What is a smile makeover?

If you are considering cosmetic dentistry, then you may have already come across  the term ‘smile makeover’. This is when your dentist helps you to choose two or more treatments that will revitalize your smile and combine them to create a beautiful effect. You can design your smile in a number of different ways using this method and give yourself the look you have always wanted.

A dentist that offers a wide range of treatments like Aura Dental in St John’s Wood, will be able to give you an extensive selection of combinations. This indicates that the practice has a strong interest in the art of cosmetic dentistry.

How to choose your cosmetic dentist

When you are looking for a cosmetic dentist, you will consider a number of factors. Can you see examples of their work? Can they offer advice based on your vision even if you are not sure which treatments to go for? You need a dentist that is friendly, professional and able to create an atmosphere of trust so that you can have confidence in their recommendations.

Which treatment is right for you?

Your dentist will advise on the treatments that are likely to achieve the effect you want. After that, it is a matter of considering which other factors are important to you. Are you looking for an effect that lasts a long time? Would you prefer a lower-commitment option, like teeth whitening?

You can change the colour of your teeth, repair damage, replace missing teeth and many other options. It is up to you to decide what your priorities are. Your dentist will usually talk to you about what is best for your dental health as well.
