Smile Makeovers

Patients hoping to find a dazzling white smile could benefit from a range of treatments designed to provide a smile makeover at Smile Architect dental clinic.

Veneers/ Laminates

Dental veneersWhen pain arises from a tooth, the tooth may have become infected and require root canal treatment.

Dental veneers are wafer-thin laminates of tooth-coloured material that are cemented to the front surface of teeth to drastically improve their aesthetic appearance and increase the confidence of wearers.

Individuals who select the procedure often have stained or discoloured teeth caused by the consumption of coloured food and drink such as coffee and red wine or have damaged their teeth with chips and cracks or are unhappy with the natural shape of their teeth.

Gaps and spaces between teeth can also be resolved with the use of dental veneers, which could provide the perfect solution for people looking to improve their appearance and smile.

Regardless of the type of veneer chosen to achieve a smile makeover, prospective patients will be first invited to an initial consultation with their Smile Architect dental clinic. During this initial appointment, it is vital for people to discuss exactly what they are looking to achieve through the treatment.

Following this, impressions will be taken for a trial smile assessed on models to ensure it is compatible with their bite and the size, shape of proposed laminates is what or according to the patient’s desire.

Emax Veneers

Emax veneers are a form of high strength porcelain veneers that are custom made and bonded to teeth to improve the aesthetics of the teeth or to enhance their function.

Emax veneers are pressed ceramic and their high strength and durability make it possible to produce them in very thin layers allowing little or no preparation (drilling) of the teeth. This is one of the biggest advantages of Emax veneers and hence avoiding drilling the teeth to peg shapes as can be the case with more conventional porcelain veneers.

We would like to bring to the attention of our readers that with any cosmetic procedure, patients should always ensure that the provider of the treatment has enough experience and artistic abilities to satisfy the patient requirements. One of the best ways to assess this is by means of viewing photos of previous work done and patient testimonials.
