Are your teeth discolored, decayed, chipped, or crooked, causing you to want to hide your smile?
It may be time to consider a “smile makeover”.
This cosmetic dentistry process allows you to dramatically improve the appearance of your teeth. Cosmetic dentists utilize a wide variety of techniques, including veneers, bonding composites, dental implants, and teeth whitening.
If the damage to your teeth is extensive or severe, you may need to consider having a full mouth makeover, instead.
Considerations Before a Smile Makeover
There are several details to take into account before you schedule your smile makeover. They include but aren’t limited to:
- Your face’s overall appearance
- Your skin color
- Your hair color
- The dimensions of your teeth: their color, width, display, and length
- The condition and health of your gums
- The shape and health of your lips
These factors should all be taken into account before you schedule your smile makeover to make sure you get the best possible results. Before starting the cosmetic dentistry procedure, the dentist will ask you for some information. They’ll ask about things like what you don’t currently like about your smile or your teeth. From the answers you provide, the dentist will be able to create a smile that’s customized for you.
A smile makeover affects your entire mouth, especially the parts that can be dramatically altered using modern cosmetic procedures. One of these elements is the teeth. Your teeth’s shape and color can be altered in order to drastically change their appearance. Fillings can also be replaced with composite restoration to improve their appearance. If your teeth are stained they can be whitened. There are numerous solutions available, such as implants, composite bonding, bridges, veneers, and crowns. The dentist will ask many questions to help decide which treatments are right for you and your lifestyle.
Cosmetic Dentistry Benefits
One indicator that age is catching up with you is your teeth becoming dark or discolored. However, it’s possible to whiten and shape your teeth, reversing the appearance of aging. This makes you look years younger.
These smile makeovers can also improve your oral health. Decaying teeth can be removed entirely and replaced with dental implants. Chipped teeth that have been cutting the soft tissue of your mouth can be replaced with smoother teeth that don’t cut you. A smile makeover will also encourage you to take better care of your teeth, so that you practice better oral hygiene. You’ll feel encouraged to take better care of your investment, and you’ll find that you’re taking better care of your overall oral health and in turn, your mouth in general.
These makeovers are solid investments to make in your health. Image truly is everything. If you’ve been embarrassed by your smile in the past, consider investing in yourself. You’ll be able to see the power of an attractive smile first hand, witnessing just how much it improves your life on a day to day basis.
