A smile makeover is a process of improving the shape, colour, and alignment of your teeth. A smile makeover is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can include services such as dental veneers, crowns, bridges, and Invisalign. Our Port Coquitlam cosmetic dentist will work closely with you to develop a treatment plan intended to deliver what you want from your smile makeover.
Cosmetic Dentistry Assessment
The first step is to determine what you like or dislike about your smile or your teeth. For example, over time tooth colour can change, leaving you looking and feeling older. A well-shaped mouth with bright teeth promotes a more youthful appearance. If you are not happy with the alignment and spacing of your teeth, then we can discuss orthodontics, Invisalign® , or veneers to help improve your smile. Healthy dentition and the perfectly aligned smile can lead to a more confident outlook. To restore the form and function of damaged teeth, we will consider using veneers, crowns, or bridges to restore form and function. Improving the look of your teeth and smile can boost your confidence and even help you keep your body healthy.

- Smile Makeover Restores form and function of teeth
A crown is built around the remaining healthy structure of a broken or severely damaged tooth. The crown both strengthens the tooth and drastically improves the appearance of your smile!
Veneers are used to restore proper proportions of front teeth. A durable porcelain shell is placed on the front of your tooth to cover the outside and biting edge. They fix teeth that are too small, worn down, chipped, fill in gaps, and cover discolorations. Veneer installation requires a small layer of enamel to be removed in order for them to be cemented.
Bridges are used to fill the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns (abutment teeth). A pontic (a false tooth), is then placed in the middle. Natural teeth and dental implants are able to support bridges.
Now you can straighten your teeth without braces! Perfect your smile, love the way you look and boost confidence with Invisalign®. Invisalign is an alternative to the clunky, traditional metal braces that were the old standard. Instead of a mouth full of metal, Invisalign uses a series of nearly invisible aligners made of thermoplastic material.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will my teeth need to be shaved down into tiny points?
Contrary to popular belief, porcelain veneers only require a small reduction in tooth structure because they are so thin. We may not even need to remove any tooth structure at all.
How long will my veneers and crowns last?
Generally, crowns and veneers should last between 20-25 years without wearing down or losing colour.
Should I worry about what I eat with my crowns or veneers?
Eat whatever you want to eat! Your new crowns or veneers are durable and will not fall off once bonded
