Smile Makeover and Orthodontic Correction

SMILE MAKEOVER AND ORTHODODNTIC CORRECTION

People suffering from dental problems like tooth decaying, tooth loosening, stains, and bacterial plaque usually opt for smile makeover treatment. Smile makeover includes cosmetic correction. The treatment plan consists of many cosmetic and functionally restorative procedures, potentially including teeth whitening, composite bonding, veneers, dental crowns, orthodontics (braces), oral maxillofacial surgery and gummy smile reduction

Some factors taken into consideration for this treatment include: facial appearance, tooth color, gum line, alignment and spacing, missing teeth, harmony and balance, fuller lips, cheeks. Based on patient’s requirements and needs, the responsible factors are corrected.

For example, if a person is considered about the color of his anterior tooth, bleaching or whitening procedures can be carried out for them. Veneers and crowns are preferred in cases of chipped or fractured anterior teeth.

MAINTENANCE OF RESULTS:

For the longevity of the corrections done and maintenance, it is important to follow the instructions given to you. Following considerations should be kept in mind:

1. Regular maintenance of oral hygiene and modifying oral hygiene habits in relation to the restorations.

2. Avoiding caffeinated drinks, tea, soda etc., as these may result in staining of composite restorations.

3. Use alcohol free mouthwash.

4. Refrain from biting/chewing on hard objects such as pins, bottle caps, and hard foods.

5. Porcelain veneers may chip-off and need replacement.

ORTHODONTIC CORRECTION:

Investing in a smile makeover can have significant benefits, socially and professionally. Straightening teeth is an important part of that confidence-boosting makeover process.

Orthodontists deal with the correction of crooked teeth. All orthodontic appliances work essentially the same way: by employing light, constant force to move teeth into proper alignment.

Widely preferred treatment involves the use of metal braces. Small metal brackets are bonded to the front of the teeth. A thin wire runs through the brackets and is attached on either end to metal bands that go around a back molar.

Nowadays, clear braces are available which are more inconspicuous. Clear brackets made of ceramic, plastic or a combination of both. They are hardly visible, except for the thin wire running through, but they are more susceptible to breakage than metal braces.

As an alternative to the fixed type of orthodontic appliances mentioned above, clear aligners are available, which are removable. They are actually a series of clear plastic “trays” that fit over your teeth exactly. Each tray is part of a series of trays that move your teeth a little bit at a time until they are in the proper position. Your trays are designed with the help of specialized computer software that generates a virtual model of your bite.

MAINTENANCE DURING AND AFTER ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT:

1.  While you are wearing the orthodontic appliances, gentle forces will be applied to your teeth so they can move through their surrounding bone.

2. Periodontal health plays a key role in all of this; if the gum tissues are not healthy during orthodontics, bone loss can result and weaken the long-term prognosis of your teeth. So any gum disease is brought under control before orthodontic treatment begins.

3. To maintain your periodontal health, you will need to make sure to have regular professional cleanings during the orthodontic treatment  while maintaining good oral hygiene at home.

4. Wearing a retainer after orthodontic treatment is crucial, no matter which type of appliance you choose and what age you happen to be. Teeth that are held in place by a retainer long enough for new supporting bone to develop around them, so that they don’t drift back to their original positions. You will be instructed on how to retain your new, more beautiful smile so that it continues to make you look and feel great for years to come.
