What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a process wherein the aim is to improve the appearance of the smile of one person through one or a series of cosmetic dentistry procedures, like dental veneers, tooth implants, teeth whitening, composite bonding and so on.

The process takes into consideration your overall facial appearance, your skin tone, the color of your hair, your gum tissue and even your lips, so as to form your ideal smile. Also, taken into consideration are the aspects of your smile that you like or dislike.

To put simply, a smile makeover is an elective procedure, which means you choose to do it on your own, making it different from a full mouth reconstruction, which is something that has to be performed due to urgent health concerns.

Benefits of a Smile Makeover

The expenses involved in a series of cosmetic dentistry procedures are enough for anyone to hesitate about getting a smile makeover. But, while it is indeed an expensive treatment, especially since most dental insurance carriers don’t cover much of the expenses, getting that perfect smile is worth it – both for esthetic and functional reasons.

Below are the many benefits of getting a smile makeover:

  • Improved self-esteem and self-confidence. This is, unarguably, one of the many reasons why people are interested in getting a smile makeover in the first place. And, well, there’s no shame in spending money to improve your own look, which may help improve your self-esteem and self-confidence.

 

  • Fixed bad bites. In many cases, especially in orthodontics, braces or Invisalign just aren’t fitted just for esthetic reasons. Many times, it is to correct a bad bite, which can help improve or fix the function of one’s teeth and may even help prevent gum disease.

 

  • Prevention of jaw atrophy. Those with missing teeth are candidates for implants, which are great for preventing jaw bone atrophy, while at the same time, helps in maintaining that youthful and vibrant smile.

 

  • Lowered risk for tooth decay and cavities. Chipped and broken teeth, as well as excessive gaps in between and  cavities can all eventually lead to worse complications down the line. While, in the case of cavities, fillings need not always be cosmetic, having tooth-colored fillings is still a far better-looking option. That and the use of dental crowns and bridges that are made specifically to blend well with the rest of your teeth means that one no longer has to sacrifice esthetic offer function when it comes to preventing further dental complications.

 

Basically, what a smile makeover does is not just to improve the appearance of your teeth, but also make sure that it’s as function as it is supposed to be.

The fact that smile makeovers are basically a combination of both cosmetic and restorative procedures help make sure that your teeth not only look prettier after the procedure, but also are healthier than ever before.
