A smile makeover is aimed at those feeling self-conscious about their smiles and/or experiencing pain due to shifting teeth. By employing technologies like CEREC 3D Instant Teeth, Dr Dave Richards can perform sophisticated corrective treatments with minimal downtime.

A natural smile makeover is a personalized treatment that starts with a check-up and evaluation of the current conditions. The clinic also has an X-ray machine for more extensive damages like a collapsed bite, malalignments, or tissue or bone damaged by periodontal disease. In these cases, Dr Richards may suggest procedures like Invisalign, dental implants, veneers, and bridges.

Integrating cutting-edge technologies such as CEREC 3D Instant Teeth gives patients a more pleasant experience. CEREC 3D is a modern alternative to traditional crowns, accomplished through a digital scan. The new crown is instantly created and fitted, meaning it can all be done in one visit in about 90 minutes, compared to several visits with uncomfortable impression trays and a temporary crown.

Regarding dental hygiene, Dr Richards employs EMS (Electro Medical Systems) technology, including Airflow. With this technology, there is little to no scraping, and the biofilm of bacteria, plaque, and tartar is polished away with a stream of air, warm water, and fine powder. In addition to being less uncomfortable, this method also produces better results in hard-to-reach places. Different teeth whitening options are available if the teeth still look stained or discoloured after the Airflow treatment.
