A healthy smile inside and out is a powerful thing to have, and it’s often one of the first things someone will notice. When you smile, your facial muscles contract around your mouth, cheeks and eyes and help you to express yourself authentically.
Here at Mount Lawley Dental, we tailor bespoke smile makeovers to address both your oral health and cosmetic dental needs.
So, whether you have crooked teeth, a gummy smile, discolouration or a broken tooth that needs attention, our team of cosmetic dentists have the experience, skills and technology to help.
A smile makeover involves meticulous planning, an artistic eye and cosmetic dental experience.
Our cosmetic dentists consider your facial proportions, smile expressions, lip framework, gum contours, tooth shape and colour to customise your smile makeover journey.
Your smile makeover may involve a simple restoration like a white filling or crown to protect and strengthen teeth from decay, as well as teeth whitening or tooth bonding to repair chipping or even veneers to mask dental flaws.
Our smile design process begins with a conversation with one of our cosmetic dentists to listen to your smile goals and assess your oral health.
In this consultation, we determine what general, cosmetic and restorative treatment options are best suited to achieve your desired results.
We take time to explain the smile design process, factoring in your budget and answering any questions you have.
We prepare your smile makeover treatment plan, explaining each treatment our dentist recommends and the costs involved.
Your treatment plan shows the number of appointments required and how long it will take to complete your smile makeover journey.
During this step, we also explain our payment plan options to help you access treatment easier.
During this stage, we take diagnostic radiographs, clinical photographs and impressions to create a ‘trial smile’ to guide your smile makeover journey.
Our dentist then fits you with your ‘trial smile’ and provides a digital preview to show you what your new smile will look like. Any adjustments are made during this step before your teeth are prepared.
Now that you’ve completed all your treatments, the only thing left to do is to show off your new smile with a photoshoot, so sit back and relax!
In your final session, we’ll be able to demonstrate your progress and the final results of your smile makeover journey.
At Mount Lawley Dental, our team is committed to providing you with exceptional oral health care. We’re dedicated to helping you achieve an aesthetic outcome that is functional, predictable and long-lasting.
Our dentists have completed further training in restorative and rehabilitation dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and teeth straightening, including Invisalign®. You’re in good hands when you trust us to care for your new smile, because:
The cost of a smile makeover is different for everyone and depends on the number of treatments you’re having, diagnostic costs, tooth materials and oral appliances used. Cosmetic dentistry is not normally covered by health insurance or government benefits, but you still may be able to claim part of your treatment cost.If you have an outcome in mind, we will discuss your budget and estimated costs prior to treatment going ahead.
A smile makeover may involve multiple dental and cosmetic treatments working together. These could include teeth whitening, placing dental veneers, crowns or implants, teeth straightening with braces or clear aligners, gum recontouring and more procedures.
Smile makeovers are designed in a way that ensures results are natural looking, aesthetic, healthy and minimally invasive. Discover what makes the perfect smile makeover, by watching our short video by Dr Lewis:
A trial smile is a provisional temporary smile that’s placed on your teeth, using digital impressions taken of your mouth. A trial smile model and digital preview allows you to try out your new smile, making any desired adjustments before going ahead with long-term enhancements.
A smile makeover is a personalised treatment plan that designs a modified smile using a combination of cosmetic dental procedures. Dentists work closely with patients to make sure they understand what they want from their new smile and explain how each procedure can help them to achieve their desired outcome.
