5 Things to Consider for Your Smile Makeover

Congratulations on your upcoming smile makeover! Before you get started on the process with the help of your dentist in Singapore, take some time to think through your goals for the smile makeover. Be sure to discuss some vital points and key considerations with your dentist at the beginning of treatment, so you can be sure that you are working toward the same ideal result— a healthy smile that enhances the natural look of your face.

Skin Tone and Hair Colour

Your skin tone is an important factor in smile design, since the natural hue of your skin can make your teeth appear yellower or whiter in contrast. For example, if you are naturally dark-skinned, you may not need as many whitening treatments as someone with very pale skin. Your hair colour also plays a part in the design of your new smile. A good cosmetic dental clinic will take your general appearance and colouring into account when planning the final look.

Tooth Colour or Staining

Are your teeth fairly smooth and uniform in colour, or do they have spots or staining? Yellowed or stained teeth can benefit from whitening treatments, but if the problem is too severe, you and your Singapore dentist may need to discuss the possibility of porcelain veneers. These thin, ultra-durable shells mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, and they fit over your original teeth.

Shape and Size of Teeth

If your teeth are overly large for your face, they may need to be filed down a bit. In the hands of a skilled Singapore dentist, this process is simple and non-invasive. If the teeth look too small because of overgrown gums, laser gum reshaping is an option for improving the appearance of your smile. In extreme cases of misshapen, cracked, or chipped teeth, porcelain veneers can provide the necessary coverage and stability.

Straightness of Teeth

Crooked teeth, a misaligned bite, tilted molars, and overcrowding can usually be resolved with Invisalign, a system of clear aligners that gradually moves your teeth into better, more comfortable positions. In severe cases, your dentist may recommend combining Invisalign with traditional appliances or braces; but in most situations, you can have the problem corrected with Invisalign, and few people will even know that you’re wearing invisible braces.

Facial Structure

Your original smile may not have been right for your face, due to jaw issues, asymmetry problems, and crooked teeth that forced you to smile in an awkward way. At your dental clinic, your dentist will review photos and X-rays of your face and mouth to determine how to achieve a smile that looks beautiful, symmetrical, and natural. Your bone structure, cheeks, and lips provide the frame for the stunning smile you deserve.
