Here at Belmore Dental Implant Clinic we often see patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. During an initial consultation, we do a thorough oral health check and discuss your treatment options for a smile makeover. To see some of the end results of our smile makeovers, visit our case study page https://www.belmoredental.co.uk/smile-gallery.
Dr Sinead McEnhill & Dr Joe McEnhill works on the majority of our smile makeover cases and has given many a patient a beautifully brightened up smile. Here are a few questions Dr Joe McEnhill has answered for us here:
Question: How long does the treatment take?
Dr Joe McEnhill –This really all depends on what your goals are and what treatment is recommended in order to achieve those desires. If short-term orthodontics is required this will take a few months on top of any other treatment that is carried out. However, veneers will only take two dental appointments and tooth whitening can be carried out in an hour or two at the practice or with a home whitening system over a couple of weeks.
Question: How permanent is a smile makeover?
Dr Joe McEnhill – Short-term orthodontic treatment will move the teeth into new positions and will usually be held in place with a discreet wire at the back to prevent them from moving back, so this is a permanent treatment. Veneers last many years but can break or chip, just like a normal tooth can, so you need to be careful with and look after them as you would your natural teeth, although veneers can be repaired or replaced. Tooth whitening is not permanent as it simply removes the stains that build up from ageing and certain foods and drinks. You will notice the teeth will gradually discolour but you can have the treatment again to keep those pearly whites gleaming.
Question: Does a smile makeover give you a fake, Hollywood smile?
Dr Joe McEnhill – Not unless that’s the look you’re after. A smile makeover is about working out what you don’t like, understanding your aspirations and looking at the techniques that can be used to create the smile that you really want.
Here at Belmore Dental Implant Clinic we will recommend a natural look that will be as kind to the teeth as possible and that will suit you for the long term rather than being fashionable right now.
