When you know your car isn’t working properly, but you don’t know how to make it a thing of beauty and a joy to drive again, you take it to a car expert. The same goes for teeth and mouths. Yes, you can live for years with teeth that don’t look great. They may even have a few issues that you can live with (other than decay or gum disease, which cause discomfort). Perhaps you know what we are talking about. You keep your smile under wraps these days. You no longer roar with laughter. If you have removable false teeth or a fixed bridge, you can’t even eat your favourite crunchy, chewy foods.
All in all, when your smile is no longer a lovely thing, for whatever reason, each day, in subtle but undeniable ways, chips away at your self-esteem.
If you can do it for your beloved old car, shouldn’t you take your teeth to a professional and see if they can be restored to their full gleaming former glory? If you never had a Rolls Royce of a smile, there are ways to turn it into one.
The world of smile makeovers
At Smilecraft, we can give you one of our famous smile makeovers in Stevenage. This is an umbrella term for a combination of cosmetic dentistry treatments. We take a good look at your mouth and work out a plan to bring your smile to peak condition.
This may include getting some teeth straightened. This will not only make them look better, they will be easier to clean and your chewing pressure will be more evenly distributed, so your teeth will last longer.
If your teeth are chipped and worn, they can be repaired by covering them with veneers or composite bonding. Your back molars may need something stronger like crowns.
Stained teeth, as long as there are no prosthetics such as veneers, can often be whitened.
How these treatments are combined and in what order they are performed is vital to the success of your treatment, and you will receive a treatment plan with the order and cost of treatments needed to make over your smile.
