Smile makeover care and maintenance
Cosmetic dental procedures or smile designing procedures demand proper, regular and long-term oral care like daily brushing , regular dental check-ups within short intervals of at most three to six months.

Smile designing procedures should be very appealing, comfortable, hygienic, easy to maintain and functionally very successful. Smile designing should be done with a conservative mind set involving less time, reasonable costs and more durability. A multispecialty approach gives an individual an overall makeover.
