What is a smile makeover? 
A smile makeover is made up of different dental treatments and procedures which work together to address your dental situation. A smile makeover helps transform the aesthetic appearance of your smile and also helps to promote better oral health at the same time. You need to visit your dentist who will be able to tell you which treatments and procedures can work together to address your dental needs and your personal preferences. Your dentist will begin by assessing the health of your dentition. This is to make sure that your teeth and gums are clean, healthy and strong, and to identify any dental issues which may need to be addressed prior to any cosmetic dental procedures being conducted. It is important that any dental health anomalies are treated before you begin cosmetic dental treatment, to prevent further complications in the future, also healthy teeth and gums will enable the treatment to be carried out more successfully. Once your dentist is happy with the condition of your teeth and gums then you may have to undergo X-rays and specialist three-dimensional scans to help create a digital image of your mouth. This image can then be manipulated to find out how it can be improved using cosmetic dental techniques. Each smile is individual and unique, therefore your dentist will use these results to put together an individually tailored prescription for you. 

Teeth straightening 
The majority of adults suffer from a certain degree of misalignment with their teeth. Your dentist will be able to offer you a range of different orthodontic devices to help straighten your teeth to improve the appearance of your smile, but also to improve your overall oral health. A smile that is neatly aligned is not only attractive, but easier to maintain and clean, therefore less prone to disease.
