What is a smile makeover?

Feb 26, 2020

The dental profession has developed a number of cosmetic procedures that are designed to create a more pleasing appearance.  This process is geared toward replacing missing teeth and disguising imperfections.  At Manotick Main Dental we can recommend several different procedures that will provide the client with a great smile.

Composite resin bonding

This will repair or mask tooth imperfections.  This is a same-day repair procedure.

Teeth whitening

The simple act of using professional whitening solutions will give a lovely gleam instead of dull or yellowing teeth.  These professional treatments surpass those over-the-counter products.

Porcelain veneers

Using veneers, the dentist can mask chips, cracks and gaps.  These are custom made and are a more permanent solution to the issues.

Inlays and onlays

Instead of using silver amalgam fillings, inlays and onlays provide a more aesthetic appearance to repair decay.


A dental crown covers an entire tooth.  It provides protection as well as a cosmetic repair.

Composite tooth-colored fillings

These will better blend into the appearance of the tooth instead of a silver filling.  They also provide a more shallow preparation so there is less drilling.  They actually bond better to the tooth structure than silver fillings.
