Your smile is one of the first things that people notice when they see you. Even more importantly, it’s one of the things that people remember the longest after you leave. When you really want to make an impression, it helps to be able to ash a confident, brilliant smile. If you have an event coming up, like a wedding or a high school reunion, and you’re unsure if your smile is as beautiful as it could be, you may be able to benet from a smile makeover. Here’s what you should know about getting a smile makeover from your dentist.
Is your smile up to your high standards? If not, your dentist has the solution.
Missing teeth can be a big blow to your confidence. If you have empty spaces where teeth used to be or teeth that are broken or damaged to the point where they need to be removed, you could get into the habit of hiding your smile or not smiling at all. Missing teeth can also be detrimental to your oral and overall health.
However, you don’t have to just live with missing teeth. Your dentist has many options for when a patient needs tooth replacement. Crowns, bridges, and dentures are all possible options. Or, you could opt for dental implants, which will give you teeth that look and function just like natural teeth.
Cavities are a common dental problem, and you already know the solution – fillings. But nobody wants to look like they have a mouth full of metal fillings. However, even one or two fillings can give that impression, especially if they’re large or close to the front of your mouth.
The good news is that fillings don’t have to be obvious or look like metal. Ask your dentist about natural-colored fillings instead of silver amalgam fillings. You’ll get the protection that you need to help stop any further decay, but no one will have to know. To the casual observer, your teeth will look as healthy and filling-free as ever.
If discolored teeth are disrupting your smile, ask your dentist about professional whitening.
Life can take a toll on your teeth that shows up in the form of stains and discolorations. If you’re a smoker, you probably know that your habit is turning your teeth gradually more yellow. But it’s not just smokers who have to deal with tooth discoloration. Coffee, tea, soda, wine, juice, and even some foods, like dark berries, can all stain your teeth. So can certain medications, and various other factors.
Luckily, your dentist can help you with tooth whitening treatments. While you may have considered at-home whitening kits that you can buy over the counter, keep in mind that your dentist has access to stronger whitening solutions than you can buy over the counter, as well as technology that can improve the whitening process, like lasers. Professional whitening treatments can give you faster, more dramatic results that last longer than anything you can buy in the drugstore.
Dental health is important, but so is having a beautiful smile that makes you feel self-confident. Your dentist can help with both. If you’re interested in making an appointment for a smile makeover, contact us.
