If you are unhappy with the way your smile looks, a cosmetic dentist might be to help with a smile makeover. A smile makeover combines several cosmetic procedures to address all the issues you have with your teeth. Combining the procedures can often save you time and money.
What Procedures Are Included in a Smile Makeover?
The specific procedures included in your smile makeover are based upon your individual goals for your teeth. You will consult with your cosmetic dentist to determine what you want to change about your teeth and the best way to accomplish those goals. You will also look at before and after pictures of other clients to be sure the final results are in line with your vision for your smile.
Procedures commonly used for a smile makeover include:
- Teeth whitening
- Cosmetic veneers
- Dental bonding
- Inlays and onlays
- Dental implants
- Gum contouring
In most cases, you will be able to combine two or more procedures and have them done in the same appointment. This helps you reduce the cost of your cosmetic work and also means it will take you less time to achieve your perfect smile.
Deciding on a Smile Makeover
If you only have one or two teeth that are causing your smile to look asymmetrical or otherwise imperfect, a smile makeover might not be necessary. However, if you have numerous problems with your teeth, including asymmetrical teeth, missing teeth, extensive discoloration, a gummy smile, or teeth that are damaged or broken, a makeover might be the best option.
Your first step will be consulting with a cosmetic dentist. Choose a dentist you feel comfortable with by getting referrals from friends or relatives, or from your regular dentist. You can also look online for a dentist who has experience and training in the procedures you need to have done. Together, you and your dentist will decide on the best approach to your smile makeover. After you’ve had your teeth redone, you’ll be able to smile with confidence again.
