MINI SMILE-MAKEOVER? WHAT IS IT?
We’re a little bit obsessed with smiles at Billericay Dental. While good dental hygiene is at the heart of everything we do, we also help people to achieve their perfect smile. It’s not just about boosting your confidence and making you feel like a movie star. You might be surprised to learn that smiling has a positive impact on your mental health.
Studies have found that smiling can make you feel happier. But if you’re ashamed of your teeth, you might be reluctant to flash your pearly whites. In 2015, Bupa surveyed 2,000 people to find out more about our smiling habits. This survey found that around one quarter don’t like smiling because of the appearance of their teeth.
If you’re looking for ways to improve your teeth, you might be put off by the price or even the length of treatment. Many of us want results, fast! Popular methods to straighten your teeth like traditional fixed braces or invisible aligners could take 6 months to 2 years to yield results. Traditional veneers also come at a price, to your wallet and your existing teeth. So, what is the alternative?
Introducing the mini smile makeover
The mini smile makeover is a minimally invasive treatment that can help to perfect your smile and boost your confidence. It’s the perfect solution for small imperfections that are holding you back. The mini smile makeover can be used for:
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Discoloured teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
How is a mini smile makeover different from traditional veneers?
With traditional veneers, your dentist creates a very thin shell that fits over your existing teeth to create the shape. Before your dentist can attach these tooth-coloured shells, they must clean, polish and etch the supporting teeth. This removes the enamel and creates a rough surface to help create a strong bond. The veneers are then permanently cemented to your teeth. This process takes multiple visits to the dentist.
With a mini smile makeover, you can enjoy same-day results. Instead of creating shells, a special material is bonded directly to your teeth and moulded into the desired shape. This process is faster and therefore less costly. It is one of the biggest advancements in dental makeovers since invisible aligners.
What can I expect from a mini smile makeover?
A mini smile makeover will refine your smile without any invasive treatments. It can make teeth appear whiter, straighter and neater. It all starts with an airflow polishing which removes plaque and surface stains from your teeth. Already, your smile will start to look whiter.
Next, a special material may be added to your teeth to help create the ideal shape. Once set, this material looks and feels just like the rest of your teeth. You will still need to take good care of your teeth and brush and floss on your usual schedule.
A mini smile makeover is designed to fix minor imperfections. If you are unsuitable for a mini smile makeover, alternative cosmetic treatments may be offered. This could include orthodontic treatments to fix the alignment of your teeth or extractions to help fix overcrowding.
The first step to achieving your dream smile is to book a consultation with one of our expert dentists. They can assess your current situation and determine if you are a candidate for a mini smile makeover.
