3 Considerations for a Complete Smile Makeover

3 Considerations for a Complete Smile Makeover

When it comes to your smile, you want to look your best! Cosmetic dentistry means having a smile you love! Recent research reveals that almost a third of all Americans notice teeth first whenever they meet a new person. So if you’re not happy with your teeth, if you’re the one closing your mouth in photos hiding your natural smile, you can improve your confidence and your smile with cosmetic dentistry and a complete smile makeover.

If you have healthy teeth that just aren’t that attractive, a complete smile makeover could be just what you need to dramatically increase your self-confidence. It is a change, though, so you’ll want to design and plan the smile of your dreams with your dental team. Here are three considerations for a smile makeover to take into account. 

Three Considerations for Your Makeover

  • First, consider a natural smile rather than aiming for the whitest teeth you can get. Make sure your smile will match your face and be unique to you.
  • Second, consider your current tooth spacing and alignment. Again, when considering straightening or veneers, make sure the makeover design you want fits the shape of your face.
  • Third, be sure to take care of any dental health issues prior to your smile makeover, whether these involve any need to deal with tooth decay or periodontal issues.

Dental Health Comes First

Making sure your teeth are healthy and fully functioning always comes first, and with that in mind we offer both periodontal and endodontic treatment. But cosmetic dentistry is also important. With skilled expertise and the use of state-of-the-art technology, you can feel and look your best.

We can easily help you to plan and get the smile you want, whether you want teeth whitening, veneers or bonding, or a complete smile makeover. 

Teeth Whitening

Because teeth lose their brightness over time, and can become stained or discolored, professional dental whitening works easily, quickly, and safely to both brighten and whiten your smile. Long lasting and attractive teeth whitening can erase the stains and discoloration from certain medications, consuming coffee, tea, or red wine, or even certain foods over time. Tobacco use, natural aging, and natural color shifts can also discolor or darken teeth.  

Professional dental whitening systems offer a long-lasting and safe way to achieve the smile you want, quickly.

Teeth Straightening

Besides the increased confidence to smile more, straight teeth can also make it easier to speak clearly, and are a central part of many smile makeovers. Having your jaw, bite, and your teeth in correct alignment makes speech clearer. There are a variety of treatment options you can choose from these days, from traditional metal braces to clear brackets, retainers, and Invisalign clear aligners. 

Invisalign® is both comfortable and practically unnoticeable as a technique for teeth straightening. It works by using a custom-made series of aligner trays of smooth, discreet plastic that gradually and gently shifts teeth into place without metal brackets or wires. Invisalign aligners are removable when you eat, and easy to keep clean while maintaining your regular dental hygiene. 

Veneers and Cosmetic Bonding

Another popular cosmetic treatment are porcelain veneers. These are thin pieces of porcelain that are used to recreate the natural appearance of your teeth. Long-lasting and attractive, they are great at disguising any cracks, chips, discoloration, and at correcting gaps in teeth. They are applied easily with adhesive, and are also resistant to stains.

Like veneers, cosmetic bonding can also improve tooth appearance. Cosmetic bonding fills or restores teeth with a tooth-colored material that’s added to the tooth structure. This simple process can adjust the size, shape, or color of your existing teeth.

Additional Cosmetic and Restorative Services 

Tooth replacements and improvements such as dental crowns, bridges, and implants for single or multiple teeth are another important part of a smile makeover, if needed. Each can improve not just your smile but your overall oral health.
