Smile Makeover - Transform Your Smile With Kent Smile Studio
As Seen On 'Ten Years Younger' & 'Extreme Makeover'
In a world where celebrity culture rules, we have found our patients are no longer settling for anything less than a perfect smile. Crooked, cracked or discoloured teeth can be transformed with the huge variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures available at Kent Smile Studio in Maidstone & Chatham.
There are many different ways a perfect smile can be achieved, which is why we ensure in your initial consultation with us, you will be able to tell us your thoughts and feelings about your smile. That way we can get a really accurate idea of your requirements and offer you the solutions and treatment plan we feel will work best for you, enabling you to have a smile makeover plan you are truly excited about.
The plan may include a wide range of different treatments. In some cases teeth whitening is all it takes to improve the appearance of discoloured but otherwise healthy and even teeth. In other cases porcelain or composite veneers may be the best choice for a patient. Porcelain or composite veneers can improve even the most even and well looked after teeth and are often chosen by people who want nothing but perfection when it comes to their smile.
Designing Your Smile
During your initial consultation we will spend dedicated time getting to know your wants and needs when it comes to your smile. We will examine your teeth, document the initial process (taking photos of how your teeth look now) and discuss the various treatment options with you. We will ensure our recommendations and treatment suggestions are clear and transparent and we will also answer any questions you may have about any aspect of the process.
Generally, fitting porcelain veneers will only involve two visits to one of our local practices. However, this is individual to the patient and in some cases can involve more than two visits - this will be something discussed with you during your initial consultation.
The veneers are made from a precisely shaped, fine layer of material which is then fixed to the front of a tooth which has been prepared for the fitting.
Veneers can be used to not only provide a very white, clean looking smile, but also an even smile as they can be used to correct the shape of your teeth as well. Veneers are extremely stain resistant and strong, which means they can last 5-10 years if maintained properly.
When you have your first visit with us, we will take accurate impressions of your teeth which will then be sent to the off-site laboratory and used to create your perfect smile. During this stage the patient chooses which shade of 'teeth' they would like. Some patients may prefer a more natural coloured tooth, others like them to be very white - we will advise you as much as we can but the final decision is always yours to make. During this stage we may also address any gum issues that may be present.
Trying The Veneers
This appointment is not necessary, but is an option if a patient wants to be able to try their veneers before the final versions are made. This is done by using the smile design specifications to create an accurate 'mock up' of what the final smile will look like. This is applied to the mouth to enable the patient to see how the final results will appear.
Preparation & Fitting
Before your veneers are fitted, we will prepare the teeth to enable the veneers to securely and accurately fit on to the teeth. This involves removing a layer of enamel from the teeth equivalent to the thickness of the veneers. You will not be expected to leave the clinic with your prepared teeth before the final veneers are fitted. We will attach temporary veneers for you to wear whilst you wait for the final veneers to be created and then fitted at a future appointment.
