The ability to smile allows one to convey emotions through the movement of the lips and teeth. Everyone enjoys being able to communicate themselves through smiles, and everyone wishes they could smile beautifully. However, one may have to hide it due to lack of confidence and a variety of oral issues.
What can one do under these circumstances? Smile makeovers, another term for a cosmetic treatment, can make people with sad smiles smile with pride! You might find that improving your grin is all you need to stay positive, enhance your self-confidence, and make the right first impression when you meet new people—friends, partners, and employers. In addition to being attractive, smile makeovers can also help your oral health! According to studies, having properly aligned teeth can lower your risk of developing dental decay as well as other conditions like gingivitis, cavities, and periodontal disease.
What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is a dental procedure that’s custom made for you to increase the aesthetics of your smile. During a smile makeover, you and your cosmetic dentist will collaborate to address any problems you may have with your teeth and gums before implementing the best treatments to give you the smile you want. Before tailoring the process to meet your needs, Signature Smiles will make a few inquiries and take into account a number of things. Before your smile makeover surgery is planned, the general appearance of the face, skin tone, hair color, and teeth (color, width, form, and length) will all be taken into account. A smile makeover can fix problems like these:
- Cracked or Crooked Teeth
- Discolored or Stained Teeth
- Gaps Between Teeth
- Crowded Teeth
- Worn Tooth Enamel
Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments For Smile Makeovers
- Teeth Whitening
When it comes to cosmetic dentistry procedures, teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most common solutions. Even if professional teeth whitening is the only form of treatment you receive, it can significantly improve the appearance of your smile. You should first schedule a professional cleaning to get the finest results. Ideally, you can visit your dentist for just one appointment to have them cleaned and whitened.
Teeth whitening doesn’t stay forever, particularly if you consume a lot of stain-causing food or beverages. However, the results of a professional whitening procedure will stay far longer than those of at-home procedures.
- Dental Implants
Dental implants provide a very lifelike appearance and are anchored permanently. With implants, a severely damaged or rotting tooth is replaced with a brand-new tooth. To entirely replace the missing tooth, implants are surgically inserted beneath the gum line of your mouth and secured with anchors and bridges. Even after the implant has been placed, you’ll still need to maintain appropriate dental hygiene to avoid infections.
Veneers are thin ceramic pieces that are affixed to the front of teeth to enhance their aesthetics. Your teeth’s outermost layer of enamel must be removed in order to place veneers. The veneers are then attached using a unique dental glue. Veneers are highly natural-looking and can be used to fix a number of dental problems, such as crooked teeth, discolored teeth, and teeth with obvious gaps.
- Dental Bonding
Dentists use composite bonding to fix teeth that are decaying, stained, or damaged. The dentist will drill out the decay and then fill the tooth’s surface with composite material to complete this operation. The material will then be shaped so that it has the same form and color as the rest of your teeth. At the end, they will use a specialized, high-intensity light to heal it. Composite bonding is the least expensive treatment when compared to other cosmetic dental procedures.
Invisalign is the most advanced technology available, people with crooked teeth now have a better, less-permanent way to straighten their teeth. Each set of trays is custom-fit to your teeth. They are more discreet than braces since they are almost unnoticeable. They also work more quickly and comfortably than heavy wire braces. Additionally, Invisalign is removable, making it simple to clean your teeth and consume food and beverages easily. Invisalign usually corrects tooth alignment in about a year, which is half as long as braces.
Crowns make your teeth look better if they are damaged or cracked. Your dentist creates a little peg-like shape out of the damaged tooth before placing a crown on it. The peg is covered with a prosthetic tooth made of metal, porcelain, or resin, which is then glued in place. After that, the crown will be filed down to match the other teeth.
After your smile makeover is over, it’s crucial to maintain the results. To achieve this, you’ll need to practice proper oral hygiene, have your teeth professionally cleaned annually, and visit the dentist at least once every three months. Your smile is among the best investments you can make. With a smile makeover, your teeth will look and feel better, giving you the confidence boost you’ve been missing.
