How to Maintain the Results of a Smile Makeover

A smile makeover is a combination of cosmetic procedures meant to improve the look of your teeth and your face simultaneously. This means that procedures such as dental veneers, cosmetic bonding, tooth whitening, gum reshaping and Invisalign can be combined into one comprehensive treatment plan designed just for you.

A smile makeover can do wonders for your appearance, but it’s important to remember that the results are not permanent. You need to take good care of your teeth and gums to keep them looking their best. In this post, we’ll talk about the easy ways to maintain the results of your smile makeover. Read on and start smiling with confidence!

What are the Common Dental Issues a Smile Makeover Can Fix?

How to Maintain Smile Makeover Results?

Maintaining the outcomes of cosmetic dentistry operations requires routine oral hygiene. Following a smile makeover, it is critical to maintaining your new, brighter smile. Below are some valuable tips:

How Long Do Smile Makeover Results Usually Last?

There is a correlation between the type of dental work done and the longevity of the treatment. A consultation appointment with one of our dental professionals is required to get an accurate idea of how long the therapy will last.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments can last for one to three years, depending on how well your teeth are kept. To keep your teeth as white as possible, you’ll want to schedule regular teeth whitening procedures.

Veneers

You can extend the life of your veneers by taking proper care of them. Having good maintenance can extend the life of porcelain veneers for more than ten years. With composite veneers, the lifespan ranges from five to eight years.

Orthodontics

Orthodontic results are intended to be as long-lasting as possible. Maintaining your orthodontic results requires wearing your retainer according to the dentist’s instructions. Teeth can revert to their original position if they are not worn consistently.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Porcelain crowns and bridges have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years. However, they sometimes need to be changed earlier as the artificial teeth may get damaged or worn down over time.

Dental Implants

In terms of longevity and durability, restorative procedures like dental implants top the list. The lifespan of dental implants can range from 15 years to almost a lifetime, depending on the oral health care hygiene of the patient. Even though it has a high success rate, implant failure does happen, and the implant must be replaced. Furthermore, a porcelain crown replacement is performed when the existing one wears out.

Gum contouring

There is no regrowth of gum tissue after a gum contouring procedure. As long as the procedure is carried out correctly, surgery offers a long-term remedy. As a general rule, regular brushing and flossing your teeth at least twice a day to maintain healthy teeth and gums.

What are the Possible Problems You Might Encounter after a Smile Makeover?

It’s safe to say that having a smile makeover is quite low risk. If something goes wrong during any operation, it is extremely rare. Your experienced dentist will go over all possible side effects with you before beginning any procedure.

Choosing a trained dentist can significantly reduce the likelihood of these complications happening.

What to Do If a Treatment in Your Smile Makeover Fails?

In certain circumstances, smile makeovers might not go as planned. If a dental treatment fails, it is advisable to schedule a dental visit so that the dentist can assess the problem and determine what went wrong. Depending on the extent of the damage, it may still be repairable, or the dental treatment may need to be redone to correct the problem.

Who Should Perform Your Smile Makeover?

Almost all of the smile makeover procedures can be done by a cosmetic dentist. A general dentist can perform treatment options, such as tooth whitening and dental crowns. A qualified and skilled cosmetic dentist with vast experience is the best option for a complete mouth reconstruction and a smile makeover process.

Final Thoughts

A smile makeover is a great way to achieve the attractive smile you’ve always wanted, but it’s important to remember that results don’t last forever. This cosmetic treatment is not something you get on a whim. You need to take your time and think about what will make the biggest difference in how happy you are with your improved smile.
