At SmileBay Dental, our dental surgeons look at every detail about the smile. What make up a great smile are naturalness as well as the harmony of the smile within the face. Often, a perfect smile is considered not realistic and thus not a great smile. Simply put, there is no one size fits all solution to aesthetic dentistry.
Common factors that affect the appearance of your smile are:
Tooth colour - Discolouration or staining
Tooth shape - Uneven, too short, or too long, cracked, chipped, broken
Spacing between teeth - Overcrowded or widely spaced (gaps between teeth), crooked, twisted or incorrectly positioned.
Gum firmness, symmetry and visibility
Lips: shape and symmetry
Buccal corridor - Too much or less empty space that should appear in the corner of your smile
If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your smile and aren’t sure where to even begin, a complete smile makeover may be the answer. We will redesign your smile to fit beautifully with your natural facial aesthetics.
Your smile should be unique. A smile makeover is a thoroughly tailored made plan for each individual.
One of the qualities that separates basic cosmetic dentists from the more advanced ones is the ability to take into account all the factors, while still maintaining the characteristics that are most cherished by you and your loved ones.
Smile Makeover should cover not only the aesthetic component but it is also a multidisciplinary treatment involving the functionality of your entire oral cavity . Your oral health must be evaluated before your personalised aesthetic treatment planning starts.
At SmileBay Dental, we will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your teeth, gums, underlying supporting structure and occlusion (bite) to determine what is the best treatment plan for you.
Full mouth rehabilitation is a comprehensive form of dental treatment which could completely restore all of the damaged teeth in your mouth. Unlike smile makeover, full mouth rehabilitation is a necessary series of procedures, rather than elective procedures.
Full mouth reconstruction is needed when:
Multiple teeth have been lost
Teeth have been injured or fractured
Teeth have become worn as a result of acid-erosion or attrition
Jaw pain is present due to bite problems
Our dentist will perform a comprehensive examination to determine the extent of the problem and the treatment options that can be done to correct it. In particular, he or she will examine the condition of your:
The condition of your teeth will determine what restorative procedures may be required. In particular, your dentist will make note of any cavities and decay, tooth wear, cracks, short/long teeth, root canal issues and any tooth movement.

If your gums are not healthy, you will most likely need scaling and root planing to treat periodontal disease in order to ensure the newly reconstructed teeth will have a solid foundation.
Temporomandibular joints (jaw joint)
Jaw muscles and occlusion: Occlusion is the relationship between your upper and lower teeth as they come into functional contact, such as when you bite, chew or close your jaws together. If a misalignment of the teeth is present, these occlusal forces can be translated from the misaligned teeth as destructive forces to the ligaments and bone that hold the teeth in place, the muscles of the head and neck and the jaw joint. Orthodontic treatment is thus needed to correct occlusion before additional restorative procedures.
The colour, shape, size and proportion of your teeth, and how they appear in relation to your gums, lips, mouth, side profile and face, are also important factors in full mouth reconstruction treatment.
Each full mouth reconstruction is unique. We will spend time planning your case with our laboratory technician and any specialists that may be participating in your treatment. We will take all aspects into considerations to achieve esthetics, function and harmony. We will discuss your desires and advising you of your options for treatment.
A full mouth rehabilitation will dramatically enhance your appearance and revitalize your smile that allows you to enjoy the confidence and attractiveness you have always desired. Our team strongly believe that your oral health and beautiful smile are essential elements of your overall quality of life.
