Smile makeovers can include several different treatments, depending on exactly what needs to be done to help give you the smile of your dreams. One such treatment that can be very useful is dental implantology. Dr Rik Trivedi is the principal dentist at Parrock Dental and Implant Centre, and he has undertaken extensive additional training in this field, and is able to create functional and beautiful smiles.

Dental implant in Kent can be used to replace just one missing tooth, or they can even be used to replace complete arches of teeth. If you currently have a full denture, and would prefer not to, then it may be possible to use multiple dental implants to hold a fixed bridge in position. If you are looking for something a bit more economical, then you might want to consider dental implants to hold your denture firmly in place.

Other Treatments Used in Smile Makeovers

While dental implants can form part of a smile makeover, they aren’t always necessary, and there are many treatments that are more commonly used. Most smile makeovers will include teeth whitening, as teeth do discolour and darken with age, and having them whitened is a quick way to give your looks a boost. This can be used as a standalone treatment, or in conjunction with other dental treatments such as veneers, crowns, white fillings, and bridges.

It is quite an art to create a great looking smile that functions properly, and which will make the most of your features, so it is something that has to be planned very carefully. Dr Trivedi will want to take impressions of your teeth which will be used to create plaster models, as well as x-rays. You’ll find he will take the time to discuss your smile requirements with you so the first diagnostic wax-up model of your teeth can be made.

This is where your plaster tooth model is adapted with tooth coloured wax to show how various treatments will work. This model can be adapted as often as necessary until you are happy with the results. Once your teeth have been prepared, then this model is used as a template to make any temporary teeth, so you get to ‘test drive’ your new smile before it is completed. If you are unhappy with anything then it can be corrected before your permanent teeth are made, although it is worth remembering that your permanent teeth will always look better than the temporaries!
