A beautiful smile can be a valuable tool for getting ahead in life. People who smile frequently are seen as more confident, friendly, and approachable by the people around them, which makes it easier for them to meet people, win trust, close sales, and form connections. This makes your smile a key part of your career and social life, but many people are too shy to show their smiles due to defects like stains, chips, gaps, or missing or misshapen teeth. Here’s a brief outline of what a smile makeover can entail and how it may be able to help bolster your confidence and improve your quality of life.

What Is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a customized and comprehensive treatment plan that is designed to correct your specific dental health issues while addressing your personal appearance goals. Since everyone has different oral health needs and dental flaws, a smile makeover may involve several of a variety of dental treatments, including:

Oral health treatments

If you have untreated tooth decay or gum disease, it will have to be cleared up before your teeth can be restored and your cosmetic issues corrected. Your dentist may recommend that you improve your oral hygiene at home for a while before you undergo any treatments. In other cases, they may remove dental decay with tooth-colored fillings or root canals or treat gum disease with scaling and root planing.

Dental restorations

Many people have missing or compromised teeth, and modern dentistry has a few ways to restore a smile. Dental crowns can be placed on injured or misshapen teeth so they can look natural and function normally. Dental bridges and dentures replace missing teeth with lifelike restorations that can make it easier to speak and chew.

Teeth Whitening

Many people deal with stains or discoloration in their teeth. Thankfully, cosmetic dentists can provide patients with teeth whitening treatments in the form of an in-office procedure that can be completed in a few hours or a take-home kit that is used over two weeks. Either will produce results superior to any store-bought product and can leave your teeth up to ten shades whiter.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells designed to fit over flawed teeth and the open secret behind the flawless smiles of many celebrities. They can be placed in as few as two appointments and can cover extensive chips, cracks, gaps, and stains. In some cases, they can realign a smile without orthodontic treatment.

Each smile makeover is tailored to the patient’s particular needs. Consulting with your dentist can determine what a smile makeover would entail for you.
