Considering a smile makeover but not sure if you’re a good candidate? If you want to improve the look of your smile, you’re probably perfect for a smile update!
There are many reasons why people choose to have their teeth whitened or get veneers placed on their front teeth. Some people choose this cosmetic procedure because they want to change the way their smile looks and feels. Others may be looking to fix a problem with their teeth such as chipped enamel or discoloration from aging. Whatever your reason is for wanting to improve your smile, there are several different ways to achieve your goal.
Why Do People Make Over Their Smiles?
Like we said, there are several reasons. The most common ones we hear when talking to patients about smile makeovers include:
Missing teeth. Many people who are missing teeth feel self-conscious about their appearance because of gaps in their smile. They might also notice that others seem to avoid them or comment negatively about how unattractive their smile is. A smile makeover can include dental implants that help fill these gaps and give you a more complete smile.
Dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth and are implanted into your jaw so you can chew, talk and bite with confidence.
Chipped, cracked or stained teeth. Sometimes the color of your teeth will fade over time due to normal wear and tear. This can lead to unsightly stains and chips in your teeth. You can brighten up your smile by having porcelain veneers placed on your teeth to cover any imperfections. These thin shells of tooth-colored material are bonded directly onto your existing teeth to create a strong and beautiful new smile. Porcelain veneers can also help to cover misshapen teeth.
Discolored teeth. Tooth discolorations come in all shapes and sizes. From small pits and scratches to large areas of staining, it’s important to know what type of treatment would best suit your needs. There are two main types of treatments available: bleaching and bonding. Bleaching involves using lightening gels and trays to remove surface stains, while bonding uses special resins to fill in deep cavities and restore your natural teeth back to their original shade. Both procedures are safe and effective at improving your smile.
Tooth alignment. When teeth don’t line up properly, you can end up with an uneven smile. Orthodontic braces can straighten out crooked teeth and correct misaligned bites and other dental issues. In some cases, orthodontics isn’t enough to solve the issue. For example, if you’ve got a gap between your upper and lower teeth, you’ll need to address that too. To do that, you could opt for dental crowns (caps) that fit over your teeth to hide the space. Or, you could consider getting veneers placed on top of your teeth to close off the gap. Either option will dramatically improve your smile.
Gummy smiles. If you have a lot of gum tissue on your teeth, you can often see it when you smile. It can make you appear older than you really are or can make your smile look unhealthy. By removing excess gum tissue, you can reduce the visibility of your gums and give yourself a healthier-looking smile. Do you have a gummy smile? Let’s talk.
Gum recession. Gum recessions happen when your gums pull away from your teeth. As a result, your teeth become exposed and can begin to decay. If you notice that your gums are pulling away from your teeth, you should schedule a visit with our dentist right away. We can perform minor gum surgery to prevent further damage and help your gums heal faster.
The Emotional Benefits of a Smile Makeover
A smile makeover can boost your self-esteem and increase your overall happiness. Having a brighter, more attractive smile makes you feel better about yourself and helps you enjoy life even more. People tend to be drawn to someone who has a great smile. So, not only does a smile makeover change how others perceive you, but it also changes how you view yourself.
Smile makeovers aren’t just cosmetic dental procedures. They can actually benefit your oral health as well. A smile makeover can repair chipped, broken or stained teeth. And, it can also eliminate gaps between your teeth. Not only does this make your smile look great, but it can also improve your bite and overall oral health.
Smile makeovers can also improve your confidence levels. After undergoing a procedure, many people report feeling happier and more positive about themselves. This is because having a beautiful smile gives you something to focus on and encourages you to take care of your appearance.
