The act of smiling is one of our first facial expressions. Babies can be seen smiling while still in the womb! Research shows that smiling has a direct positive effect on the people around us. It’s also a universal form of communication, transcending language barriers and helping us create personal connections.
When someone isn’t happy with their smile, it can impact their self-confidence and quality of life. Fortunately, a smile makeover will not only restore a beautiful smile but can also boost your self-confidence!
What Is a Smile Makeover?
While general dentistry focuses on preventative care and the treatment of oral diseases, cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the look and function of your smile.
A smile makeover is a way to invest in yourself by investing in your smile and falls under the category of cosmetic dentistry. It can be something as simple as whitening your existing teeth to a complete cosmetic makeover and everything in between like straightening your teeth.
What Does a Smile Makeover Involve?
There are varying degrees of dental work necessary for a complete Smile Makeover. As every set of teeth is unique to the individual, so are the needs and requirements of that person. The following is a list of possible treatments your dentist may recommend for your Smile Makeover.
Porcelain Veneers are often utilized in smile makeovers. Porcelain veneers are thin restorations that are placed over your front teeth. They look like natural teeth and erase years of damage and wear.
Dental Crowns repair broken teeth and rebuild worn-down teeth.
Dental Implants can be utilized if you have missing or broken teeth that can no longer be restored with a dental crown.
Composite Bonding is used to repair decayed, discolored, or damaged teeth. During this procedure, the dentist will remove any tooth decay and apply composite material to the surface. A curing light is then used to cure and harden the composite material.
Teeth Whitening can help to reveal the natural brilliance of your teeth and remove stains from food and drink, as well as, stains caused by the aging process.
Who Needs a Smile Makeover?
Your smile is as unique as you. The best way to find out if you are a candidate for a Smile Makeover begins with a consultation with your dentist.
