You find yourself staring in the mirror while specifically looking at your smile and how that cracked tooth stands out. You are embarrassed and try not to smile or cover your mouth so that no one notices. At that moment, you decide it’s time to stop being self-conscious about your smile. It’s time for a new smile.
Dental procedures that alter your smile to your liking are part of the smile makeover. A smile makeover will typically include cosmetic dentistry services that will best enhance your smile.
Laser gum contouring
The gum line, which frames the smile, is remodeled using laser contouring. Minor oral surgery is required to remove the excess gum tissues, and you will be sedated prior to the procedure.
The primary benefit of gum contouring is an increased confidence; you will need to know that the gum line matches the healthy appearance. It is not only beautiful, but it is also healthy. Gum contouring is recommended if you have periodontal disease. Your dentist may treat your disease with nonsurgical methods such as antibiotics to kill the bacteria and infection or dental cleanings to restore the gum’s health. If it fails, your dentist may recommend a surgical procedure, such as pocket reduction surgery.
Gum contouring can help you achieve an attractive smile (less gum tissue and more tooth surface), as well as improve your oral health (reducing the gum spaces will protect the teeth from severe gum disease, decaying, or bone loss).
It is a very safe procedure; however, you should expect numbness and tenderness following the procedure. The amount of pain depends on how much your gums need to be removed or reshaped.
Once the procedure is completed, your dentist may prescribe pain medication to alleviate any swelling and pain you may experience.
Depigmentation of the gums
Gum depigmentation, which is also called gum bleaching, is a cosmetic procedure used to get rid of dark spots on the gums. The color of normal, healthy gum tissue is usually light pink. However, in the case of gum depigmentation, extremely high melanin levels can result in the formation of black spots and patches on the tissue. This discoloration can alter the appearance of your smile and lead to a loss of confidence and self-esteem.
Gum depigmentation, also known as gum lightening or gum bleaching, is a name derived from the terms teeth whitening and bleaching, both of which refer to a procedure or substance used to brighten the teeth. Innovative technology, effective, and least intrusive treatment approaches are used to restore natural, pink gum tissue and improve your smile.
It’s important to note that laser gum bleaching is typically only recommended for people who have dark gums due to melanin overproduction, and it’s ineffective for gums discolored due to other factors like medications or trauma. As a result, it is critical to consult with a dentist or periodontist to determine whether laser gum bleaching is the right treatment for you.
A single session of gum bleaching can sometimes last 20 – 25 years, and in some cases, a lifetime. However, each of us is unique and has specific needs that must be addressed on an individual basis. We are confident that gum bleaching can help you, no matter how severe your discoloration is. In any case, keep in mind that you need to enjoy your smile while limiting your suffering.
Whitening of the teeth
Teeth whitening is a treatment that lightens the color of your teeth by removing stains and discoloration. It works better on extrinsic superficial stains. Because it is not a one-time treatment, the treatment must be repeated on a regular basis to maintain the brighter color.
Certain habits can cause teeth whitening to fade. Smoking and colorant-containing foods and beverages can both hasten this process. If these harmful habits are avoided and the specialists’ recommendations are followed, it is possible that no additional teeth whitening treatment will be required in the next 6-12 months.
Teeth whitening has some aesthetic and mood-altering benefits, including a whiter smile, which boosts confidence. Having whiter teeth can boost your self-esteem and provide you with more confidence in yourself. Once the treatment is completed, it is necessary to maintain good oral hygiene. Furthermore, someone who wants to have teeth whitening treatment is usually someone who is concerned about their oral health.
Veneers for the teeth
Dental veneers may be the solution for you if you want better oral health and a smile you’ll love. Veneers are thin coverings that are applied to the front of your teeth to make them look like natural teeth. Veneers can be used to treat a variety of dental problems, including stained, chipped, crooked, or damaged teeth. They can even help to conceal gaps between teeth.
One of the first things that people notice about you is your grin. A lovely smile has two components: straight, white teeth and lovely lips to frame it. The following are strategies to deal with lips for a beautiful smile.
A lip lift is exactly what it sounds like: the surgeon makes a subtle incision below the base of the nose and gently lifts the upper lip to shorten the lip and expose more of the deep pink color of the lip. As a result, your lips appear rejuvenated and more defined. A lip lift also narrows the space between the upper lip and the base of the nose, giving you a younger appearance. It can also help to reveal your smile and teeth, giving you a more youthful appearance. Your upper lip will appear fuller after a lip lift because more of your lips are exposed that were previously rolled under toward your teeth.
Injections of the lips
Lip injections (also known as lip fillers) involve temporarily plumping up your lips. More injections will be required every six to nine months to maintain the desired enhancements. Semi-permanent injections, on the other hand, have a two-year lifespan. If you’re concerned about post-procedure complications, rest assured that, contrary to what some patients claim, lip injections aren’t painful. In fact, if your surgeon performs the procedure correctly, they can feel exactly like your natural lips.
If you’re considering lip injections but aren’t sure which filler is best for you, we’ve compiled a list of the most common types of lip fillers that you can use to achieve fuller lips and improve your overall appearance.
Fillers made of hyaluronic acid (HA) – hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body. HA fillers can add volume to the lips while also improving their shape and structure.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler that, when injected, can smooth wrinkles and plump up cheeks and lips. It contains a smaller and smoother gel, resulting in softer and more precise results for patients. As a result, the filler is ideal for lip renewal and augmentation. The entire procedure could take between five and thirty minutes to complete. If you have this type of Restylane lip injection, you can expect swelling or inflammation after treatment, which usually goes away after a few hours. It may take several days to see the full effects of the procedure, though many patients have reported immediate results.
Collagen Lip Fillers – Once the most popular type of dermal filler, collagen lip fillers have fallen out of favor in recent years due to the comfort and more naturalistic appearance offered by HA fillers. Collagen, on the other hand, lasts longer than HA fillers, and the latest options are thought to be safer than previous versions. Collagen plumps the lips, whereas HA fillers plump the lips while also trapping water within the lips for a more naturalistic, full pout.
Permanent Silicone Lip Fillers – Unlike HA fillers, which have a maximum lifespan of six to twelve months, permanent silicone lip fillers are permanent and do not require maintenance. Lip-shaped implants are inserted through two tiny incisions in the lips. Furthermore, unlike older materials such as Alloderm, the latest silicone implants for the lips can be easily removed if problems arise. However, because these implants feel less natural, they have become less popular with patients.
Lip Fat Transfer Injections – It can improve your lips’ size, fullness, texture, and symmetry. Surgeons begin fat transfer surgery by removing fat cells from your buttocks, abdomen, or thighs (which are all rich in body fat). The fat is then broken down and injected into your lips. Usually, doctors inject fat into their patients’ lips and smile lines. You and your surgeon will decide how much fat to inject and where.
After a few weeks, the fat injections will improve the appearance of your lips and make them more attractive in terms of structure and fullness. These outcomes are the result of lip growth stimulation and fat placement within the lips.
Injecting fat from the patient’s own body into the lips has a longer lifespan than dermal fillers. This procedure may also necessitate up to three treatments in order to achieve the desired results.
The techniques that we shared with you can beautify your smile but we would like to remind you that the most famous and successful stars, that managed to remain long in our memory, do not look like silicone dolls at all. Many of them have even special features such as, split teeth, crooked teeth, dark teeth, thin lips… and a change in their appearance can transform them into an unknown, ordinary person overnight. Let’s bring at our attention, the famous actress Jennifer Grey, unforgettable for her role in Dirty Dancing. We all liked her for being such a clever, charming girl, with all her imperfections like all everyday people. She managed to live a beautiful dream and to enjoy freedom, love, happiness, just the way she was. After finishing the film, she underwent a surgical intervention for the aesthetic improvement of the nose. It was a gratifying result on her part, but she lost her fame overnight, and her career never recovered again.
