Could you benefit from a smile makeover?

15 / 03 / 2022

A person’s smile is one of the first things people notice when meeting someone for the first time. Smiling is one of the most basic and common forms of human expression, and it’s also contagious. According to a study by Orthodontics Australia, around 55% of Australian’s are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, whilst 62% are actively considering orthodontic treatment. At Big Smiles Dental we believe everyone deserves to feel proud about their smile, so if you count yourself among this group we would love to help you achieve the perfect smile.

What is Smile Enhancement?

A smile makeover is a cosmetic treatment offered by Big Smiles Dental which can significantly improve the appearance of your smile. This can be achieved through numerous approaches which may include:

  • Braces
  • Invisalign
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental veneers
  • Tooth implants
  • Composite Bonding

Factors to Consider

Everyone is unique, and the following factors can all affect the outcome of your smile enhancement procedure:

  • Your face shape
  • Skin tone
  • Hair colour
  • The size, length, colour and shape of your teeth
  • Lips
  • Gum tissue

During your initial consultation, your dentist will ascertain your goals, propose appropriate treatments and discuss the expected outcomes with you so that you have a clear idea of achievable results. 

Reasons to Consider Smile Enhancement

People who have undergone a smile makeover receive an instant boost to their self-esteem, enabling them to smile with confidence. When we smile, neuropeptides and dopamine are released in the brain which trigger feelings of happiness and assist in relieving stress.

 Some of the most common reasons for receiving smile makeovers include:

  • Tooth Discolouration – teeth are prone to discolouration over time, caused by daily eating/drinking habits, tobacco use and the natural ageing process. It is normal to experience enamel loss with age, which exposes the yellow dentin layer beneath the teeth. Your smile can be significantly enhanced with in-chair or take-home whitening kits supplied by your dentist. 
  • Misaligned Teeth – around 9 in 10 people have slight malocclusion. Orthodontic treatment such as braces and Invisalign can assist in straightening teeth, correcting your bite and aligning the jaw.
  • Missing Teeth – teeth can be lost as a result of facial trauma or decay. It is important to replace these teeth to avoid costly dental complications arising in future. Dental implants and crowns look, feel and function just like natural teeth and can restore your smile. 
  • Lip Enhancement – once the perfect smile has been achieved, many people opt to undergo a lip enhancement to complete their new look. Thin lips can be improved through lip augmentation, which will increase the size and fullness. This will involve your dentist administering injections of medical fillers which last up to 6 months. 
  • Wrinkles – wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process, and anti-wrinkle injections can assist with smoothing out the skin, fixing ‘gummy’ smiles and treating issues such as TMJ disorder, bruxism and teeth clenching. Results last up to several months.
