Are there stubborn yellow stains on your teeth? Do you have a crooked smile? Are chips in your teeth keeping you from feeling confident? No matter what aesthetic imperfections your smile may have, your dentist can give you a flawless set of pearly whites with a smile makeover. Using a combination of two or more cosmetic dentistry services, your teeth can undergo a dramatic transformation. Here are five reasons why it’s in your best interest to get a smile makeover.
1. Your Confidence Will Be Boosted
You may not realize how often you used to hide your teeth behind your lips or hand until you no longer have a reason to conceal them. When you’re happy with the way your smile looks, you’ll naturally want to show it off by smiling wider. Revamping your smile can boost your confidence in your personal life as well as your professional one.
2. You’ll Make a Great First Impression
Speaking of the professional world, first impressions are always important. Since your smile is one of the first things people notice about you when meeting you, you want your teeth to look healthy and aesthetically pleasing.
3. You Can Turn Back the Clock on Your Smile
As you age, your tooth enamel thins, exposing more of the yellowish dentin underneath it. Because of this, we often associate white teeth with youth. Getting your teeth brightened by your dentist can help you look youthful and vibrant.
4. Smile Makeovers Offer Streamlined Treatment
Smile makeovers are personalized by your dentist, so you can receive each treatment in the order that best meets your needs. For example, if you wish to whiten your smile and also cover up a chipped tooth with a veneer, you’ll have to whiten your teeth first so that your veneer will match the rest of your teeth. During your consultation, your dentist can discuss your smile goals and lay out a customized treatment plan.
5. You’ll Have Better Oral Health
In addition to improving the aesthetics of your teeth, smile makeovers can benefit your health. For example, dental crowns can also enhance your chewing function. Furthermore, you’re more likely to brush and floss daily if your smile is bright since you’ll naturally want to keep it that way.
What Treatments Are Involved in Smile Makeovers?
Some of the many treatments your cosmetic dentist offers include:
- Take-home teeth whitening kits to tackle deep-set stains
- Direct bonding to conservatively fill minor chips and gaps
- Porcelain veneers to conceal the entire front-facing surface of a tooth
- Invisalign clear braces to discreetly straighten crooked teeth
With all of the benefits that smile makeovers offer, it’s not hard to see why they’re so popular. Ask your cosmetic dentist today whether a smile makeover is right for you!
