Smile Makeover in Winnipeg

For the ultimate enhancement, many of our Winnipeg-area patients at Linden Market Dental Centre opt to combine a number of cosmetic and restorative dentistry treatments for a full smile makeover. In the first step of a smile makeover, the patient meets with cosmetic dentist Dr. Les Rykiss to discuss his or her smile perfection goals. Dr. Rykiss will then work with the patient to develop a treatment plan, such as a combination of porcelain veneersdental implants, and teeth whitening; the end result of which is an absolutely stunning smile.

What Don’t You Like About Your Smile?

You can expect a form of this question to be asked upon your initial smile makeover consultation. Having a good idea about the part (or parts) of your smile that you find unfavorable will help Dr. Rykiss come up with favorable solutions that can be addressed with a smile makeover procedure.

Below are a few things you can discuss with Dr. Rykiss about your smile that you may want improved:

Tooth Color: Brighter smiles are often associated with youthfulness and confidence. A more luminous smile is one of the most sought after aspects of a renewed smile and there are many procedures that may help to fix this issue. To improve the brightness of your smile Dr. Rykiss might suggest one or more of the following procedures:

  1. Teeth Whitening
  2. Porcelain Veneers
  3. Dental Bonding (or direct veneers)

Misshapen or Chipped Teeth: Patients with misshapen or chipped teeth often suffer from self-confidence and avoid smiling. To help fix the poor appearance of these conditions Dr. Rykiss may recommend one of the following procedures:

  1. Dental Bonding
  2. Porcelain Veneers
  3. Dental Crowns

Missing Teeth: Not only can missing teeth affect the attractiveness of a smile, they can also affect your bite and nutrition.

  1. Dental Implants
  2. Dental Bridge
  3. Dentures (partial dentures)

Short Teeth: Shorter teeth can give the appearance of age whereas longer teeth can give the appearance of youth. Reshaping teeth or gummy smile treatments might help you to get the youthful smile you desire. These procedures are often able to help patients with short teeth:

  1. Dental Bonding
  2. Porcelain Veneers
  3. Gummy Smile Treatment

Misaligned Teeth: Crooked, gapped or overlapping teeth can often be improved with orthodontics. In some cases Dr. Rykiss may be able to remedy these effects with porcelain veneers, porcelain veneers following an orthodontic treatment,or porcelain veneers for instant orthodontics.

The Goals of Smiles Makeovers in Winnipeg

Cosmetic dentistry is said to be a blend of both art and science and Dr. Rykiss has mastered the balance of providing patients with their most ideal smiles yet with a foundation that is built of excellent oral health. In addition to helping patients whiten their teeth, close gaps or replace missing teeth, Dr. Rykiss also considers how the smile makeover procedure will relate to the overall aesthetics of his patients. Considerations of the teeth, lips, mouth and gums are also compared to that of facial appearance, skin tone, hair color and eyes to create what is called “facial harmony.”

Regardless of the science, training and skill sets that are involved in helping patients achieve bright, confident smiles, all smile makeovers begin with a consultation. Schedule a consultation today and be sure to bring in pictures of celebrities whose smiles you like, younger photos of yourself or any other visual cues that can help us formulate an idea of what your ideal smile is like.

You’ll notice above that many of the dental issues smile makeovers correct may utilize some of the same procedures. This type of flexibility can often help us work with our clients on price and these assessments will be made during your smile consultation.
