A smile makeover refers to 1 or more treatments done to correct flaws that affect the teeth, such as missing teeth, crooked teeth, or stains. This type of makeover provides patients with a chance to regain a bright smile, which can improve their overall quality of life. Makeover treatments range from teeth whitening to dental implants.
The treatments that patients need for their smile makeovers depend on the type and severity of the cosmetic flaws they have. Each patient undergoes an evaluation to determine which types of treatments are needed to improve their smile. Some patients might only require minimal treatments to correct minor flaws, while others require more complex treatments for more serious issues. Treatments that may be part of a smile makeover include:
Teeth whitening involves making discolored or stained teeth brighter and restoring a whiter appearance. Dental veneers, such as Lumineers, are porcelain or composite resin coverings that hide stains, chips, and other cosmetic problems. Invisalign aligners make teeth straighter without the need for braces or other metal devices. Cerec 1-day crowns are artificial teeth that closely resemble a patient’s natural teeth.
Patients who have cosmetic flaws that affect their teeth should look into getting smile makeovers if they feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance. Improving their smile can benefit every part of their lives, including interpersonal relationships, day-to-day interactions with others, and even their performance at work.
A bright, healthy smile can go a long way toward boosting self-esteem and making a great impression on others. Smile makeovers have the added benefit of providing an opportunity to detect dental problems early during each patient’s evaluation. Early detection of dental problems ensures that patients get treatment right away, which reduces the risk of tooth loss due to decay or advanced gum disease.
