If you look in the mirror and are met with a smile filled with chipped and discolored teeth, a smile makeover may be the right next step for you! Whether your smile has gaps, signs of wear, or crooked teeth, a custom makeover is guaranteed to boost your confidence.
You’re not alone in wanting a better smile; a Dear Doctor poll found that 80% of people are dissatisfied with their smile. What sets you apart from the other 80% is your conscious effort to achieve the smile of your dreams. But what exactly is a smile makeover?
A smile makeover is a form of cosmetic dentistry. It can be used to achieve both a beautiful smile and to increase functionality. Smile makeovers are unique to each individual, requiring a one-on-one consultation with a dentist with expertise in cosmetic dentistry.
There are a handful of treatment options; some smile makeovers recommend restorative options while others recommend teeth replacement. The most common reasons people want their smiles corrected are: discolored, chipped, or missing teeth, a misaligned bite, and visibly worn teeth.
Often, people with signs of tooth decay seek out a smile makeover. Some of the visual cues of tooth decay may be: visible holes or pits in teeth or brown, yellow, or white staining on the surface of a tooth. Other signs include: toothache, tooth sensitivity to sweet, hot, or cold foods and beverages, and pain when you bite down.
Many people consider a smile makeover to restore harmony and balance to their smile. An uneven smile consists of uneven, chipped, and cracked teeth. Others are self conscious about their gummy smile.
A gummy smile is when more of your gum line is shown than you prefer. A smile makeover can correct a gummy smile by manipulating tooth length. A gummy smile may make teeth appear shorter while long teeth are viewed as desirable, giving a youthful appearance.
Tooth proportions can also be corrected. Some natural teeth simply are not the right length for the rest of your smile. Many people desire their two front teeth to be dominant within the smile, allowing for the smile to appear balanced.
A smile makeover may also include teeth whitening, tooth bonding, tooth reshaping, or porcelain veneers. A smile makeover can also correct tooth texture. A cosmetic dentist can characterize your dental crowns or veneers to match both the look and feel of natural teeth.
