The Mini Smile Makeover
The very act of smiling has been found to have positive effects on levels of overall happiness and confidence. In fact the mental health benefits of a genuine smile are often underestimated. A boost in self-confidence and self-esteem often leads to improvements in all aspects of life; love, work, friends and family relationships to name just a few.
One of the big upsides of working at Chalet Hill Dental & Implants in Bordon, near Farnham, Hampshire is we get to improve people’s smiles on a daily basis so we witness, first-hand, the transformation in patients mood and happiness once a successful dental treatment has been completed. We’re the lucky ones who get to see our patients new bright, wide smiles and the sheer happiness that comes with smiling.
According to a 2015 Bupa survey on the effects of smiling on over 2000 patients over 25% stated they didn’t like or never smiled because of the appearance of their teeth. You can read more about why people don’t like smiling and we understand it’s often about anxiety over price or the length of treatment time that puts patients off. It’s true more complex teeth straightening cases may require Orthodontics which can take between 6-24 months and even clear brace options like Invisalign can take many months to show results. It’s also true that dental veneers offer that Hollywood Smile but are a more expensive option than some other treatments.
So, at Chalet Hill Dental & Implants in Bordon, near Farnham, Hampshire we’re here to tell you about a new, quicker, less expensive way of having the smile of your dreams.
What is a mini smile makeover?
The mini make-over or mini smile makeover is the perfect choice for patients who are happy with the shape and position of their teeth but would like to brighten their smile. It’s a minimally invasive dental treatment that offers a perfect, confidence-boosting smile for patients looking to correct small imperfections in their teeth. Even small imperfections can have an overly large impact on how you feel about yourself and can impact your work, social and family life.
What dental problems can a mini smile makeover correct?
A mini makeover can solve a multitude of dental issues, including:
- Broken or chipped tooth or teeth
- Discoloured tooth or teeth
- Crooked tooth or teeth
- Gaps between teeth
How is a mini smile makeover different from traditional veneers?
With traditional veneers, your Bordon dentist creates a very thin shell that fits over existing teeth to create the desired shape. Before your dentist attaches these tooth-coloured shells, they must clean, polish and etch the supporting teeth. This removes the enamel and creates a rough surface to help create a strong bond. The veneers are then permanently cemented to your teeth. This process takes multiple visits to the dentist over several months.
Our mini smile makeover in Bordon offers same-day results. Instead of creating shells, a special material is bonded directly to your teeth and moulded into the desired shape. This process is faster and less costly than traditional full veneers. It’s one of the most exciting new developments in dentistry since invisible aligners.
What dental work is involved in a mini smile makeover?
A mini smile makeover will refine your smile without any invasive treatment. It will make your teeth whiter, straighter and transform your smile. It starts with an airflow polishing which removes plaque and surface stains from your teeth which will immediately whiten your teeth.
Then, a special material will be bonded to your teeth to help create the ideal shape. Once set, this material looks and feels just like the rest of your teeth. You’ll still need to take good care of your teeth; brushing, flossing and following your usual dental hygiene regime is important to maintain good oral health.
A mini smile makeover, as the name suggests, is designed to fix minor imperfections in a single or multiple teeth. If you’re unsuitable for a mini smile makeover we’ll discuss alternative cosmetic treatments at your initial consultation. This could include orthodontic or implant treatments to fix the alignment of your teeth or extractions to help fix overcrowding.
The first step to achieving your dream smile is to book a consultation with one of our expert Bordon dentists. We’ll offer a full assessment of your current smile and determine whether you’re a candidate for a mini smile makeover.
