A smile makeover is a set of restorative and cosmetic procedures designed to create a stunning, bright smile. This procedure can include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, composite bonding, crowns and bridges, and more. A smile makeover's purpose is to improve your smile's aesthetics and make it more beautiful and functional.
Many patients choose a smile makeover because they want to feel more confident when they smile and talk to others and want to improve their oral health and function. Whatever your reason for improving your smile, our dental care team at Old Town Dentistry is here to help!
What Problems Can a Smile Makeover Fix?
A smile makeover can fix various aesthetic and functional imperfections depending on your particular needs, giving you an improved bite and a healthier and more beautiful smile.
Thanks to advancements in dentistry and cosmetic treatments, patients with various concerns can benefit from a smile makeover. Many patients choose this type of treatment because it can address several aspects simultaneously.
For example, a patient may have their missing teeth restored with a dental implant or bridge and also get a teeth whitening treatment so their smile is bright and white. Others may want to treat a gummy smile and also use veneers to make their teeth more even.
While all these treatments are effective independently, a full smile makeover usually includes two or more of these procedures for comprehensive results.
Some patients may also benefit from orthodontics for a functional improvement to their smiles. Orthodontic treatment such as braces can improve a patient’s bite alignment and prevent uneven tooth wear. This makes it easier for the patient to bite, chew, and speak without damaging their teeth or restorations. It can also give the patient a more even-looking smile and better self-confidence to show off their new look.
Advantages of a Smile Makeover
Feeling good about your smile can help you feel confident at work, in your social life, and even at home with your family. You tend to act more confidently when you feel good about your appearance.
Better Oral Health
When you have a beautiful smile, you’re more likely to take good care of it and brush and floss regularly. This can help improve your dental health and prevent cavities or gum disease from developing.
When you have an imperfect smile and aren’t happy with how it looks, it can lead to lowered self-esteem. A smile makeover can improve your self-image and help you feel better about yourself.
