Is a Smile Makeover in Your Future?

Are you happy with your teeth? Not satisfied with them, but actually happy? If you wish there were a few things you could change about your smile, you’re not alone. There are lots of people that have minor to significant tooth irregularities that are bothered by them every time they look in the mirror. That’s why smile makeovers are becoming increasingly popular with patients of all ages and backgrounds.

Cosmetic Dental Options That Fit Your Needs

There are lots of options when it comes to designing your perfect smile. Everyone’s needs are different, and so are their treatment plans. Smile makeovers can be an important investment or even an affordable option that meets the needs and goals that you’re trying to reach. Many people choose a combination of cosmetic treatments like whitening, veneers, tooth colored fillings or bonding, transforming one tooth at a time, or all of them at once. 

How Long Does a Smile Makeover Take?

Length of smile makeover treatment depends on what goals you’re trying to achieve. Some treatments like porcelain veneers provide instant results in just 2 visits. Composite bonding can be finished in one short appointment. Other treatments like implants or braces may take longer. One of the great things about getting a custom smile makeover consultation is that you can walk away knowing what options you have, as well as the time it will take.

Beautiful smiles make lasting impressions. They increase self-confidence, help people become more sociable, and even give you an advantage when it comes to job promotions and interviews. Smile makeovers are a lasting investment that changes many aspects of your life.

Investing in a Smile Makeover

Investing in the right types of things can improve your quality of life. These investments can be different for everyone: an education, your home, a child’s future…. even your smile. Smile makeovers dramatically changes the way you look and feel about yourself, as well as the way other people see you. Your teeth are something that you see every day, and when you’re not happy with how they look it can greatly affect your social life or even your habit of smiling.

Studies show that people with beautiful smiles are seen as friendlier, and even more likely to be considered for promotions or job opportunities. The confidence that a beautiful smile gives you will make most people more prone to talking and smiling around other people, increasing their quality of life. Your smile is what most people notice first about you, but if you’re afraid to smile it can lead to missed opportunities.

A smile makeover can be as mild or dramatic as you would like it to be. The financial investment of repairing, restoring, and improving the appearance of teeth greatly depends on what types of procedures you decide to have completed. From whitening, bonding, and veneers, just about anyone can afford some aspect of smile makeovers.

Let your dentist know what aspects about your smile that you would like to change. Is it just one tooth? Do you have several teeth you want to look different? Your dentist will formulate an individualized treatment plan based on your concerns, your budget, and offer you a few different choices to select from. In just one or two appointments you can walk out of the office with a brand new smile!
