Your smile impacts how others perceive you. You can be completely dressed down in sweats and a ball cap and your smile will make you look like a million bucks. Or you can be dressed impeccably in a designer suit and polished shoes but a broken-down smile will tarnish your entire appearance. When you’re seeking rejuvenation and a new look, fad diets and expensive clothes will only get you so far. Your smile is for a lifetime, and making it new again can impact your life personally, professionally, and socially.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is completely customizable to every person’s oral health needs. A smile makeover can require several treatments or only one stop in the dentist’s chair. One person might need only teeth whitening to transform her grin. Another person might have periodontal disease and before cosmetic dentistry can be completed he will need a dentist to rebuild a healthy foundation so he can have a new smile. This is sometimes referred to as restorative dentistry and can include laser periodontal treatment as well as jaw bone and gum tissue grafting if necessary.
The following procedures are often components of a smile makeover:
Are your teeth chipped, stained, or misaligned? Do you want to close up spaces, conceal cracks, and correct imperfections? In just two visits to your dentist, you can have a Hollywood smile that is strong, beautiful, and natural-looking with porcelain veneers. People who want a slightly less-invasive treatment may opt for Lumineers. Both procedures involve covering the surface of your teeth with very thin pieces of porcelain. Not only will the look of your smile change, your face will too – in all good ways. Customized veneers extend your teeth, which makes your lips sit differently on your teeth, making them look fuller – often people who seek out veneers are at an age when thin lips are plaguing them as well. In veneers you can have a two-for-one smile makeover solution.
One of the most popular cosmetic dentistry options, teeth whitening can happen on your lunch break. In just one hour in the dentist’s chair, you can have your smile transformed professionally into a white smile that will last for years.
If you’re missing teeth, whether from an accident, decay, or disease, over time your face will eventually respond to the lack of jaw structure and you will develop sagging or hollow cheeks. Zirconia dental implants are safe for people who have a metal allergy, and they fill in the gaps that are ruining your chances for a complete smile and rebuild the foundation of your teeth. Whether you’re missing molars or front teeth, dental implants recreate the tooth root artificially and hold the replacement tooth or bridge in place. And if you’re tired of dealing with unreliable dentures, dental implants are the permanent and secure solution that allows you to speak and eat without any worries. Ask your holistic dentist about mini dental implants too, which can be placed in just one hour.
In short, a smile makeover can have you looking healthier, wealthier, and happier in just a few visits to the dentist. Contact Dr. Yolanda Cintron at Fort Lauderdale’s International Center for Dental Excellence to schedule your smile makeover consultation today.
