What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover can improve your overall appearance. It can also help you gain more confidence to pursue relationships and do the things you love in life.
Unfortunately, all too many avoid smile makeover treatment out of fear it will be invasive, too expensive or too time-consuming. These are most often not the case.
Smile makeover overview
It can be helpful to know exactly what a smile makeover is and how it is beneficial when determining if it is right for you.
The following is everything to know about smile makeover treatment. That includes what it is exactly, when to consider treatment, what procedures are involved and how the entire process works.
Smile makeover defined
A smile makeover is a set of cosmetic dental procedures performed with the primary intention of improving the appearance of the patient’s smile. Many of the treatment options also have oral health benefits. However, the main goal of both the patient and the cosmetic dentist in the majority of situations is to fix imperfections in his or her smile.
The process is most often carried out by a cosmetic dentist. That is a dentist who specializes in cosmetic procedures, rather than primarily focusing on the oral health of the patient.
When to consider treatment
Essentially everyone can benefit from some form of cosmetic treatment, whether its teeth whitening, veneers or clear aligners treatment. However, a smile makeover is typically recommended for patients with more than one cosmetic concern they would like to address. For example, a patient who would like to repair damaged teeth, straighten their smile and receive professional, in-office teeth whitening.
Common treatment procedures
Of course, the exact treatment procedures performed by the cosmetic dentist vary from patient to patient. There are some that cosmetic dentists recommend more frequently than others, such as the following:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental veneers
- Braces or clear aligners
- Dental crowns
- Dental implants
There are numerous treatment options. The exact procedures recommended by the cosmetic dentist are based on the needs and preferences of the individual. Overall, a smile makeover is designed to help patients achieve a more attractive smile. The dentist might recommend any procedure that will help the patient do so.
How the treatment process works
The treatment process with a smile makeover is about finding the right set of cosmetic dental procedures to fit the patient's budget and preference. The first step for most patients is to schedule an initial consultation with a cosmetic dentist. They can conduct an oral examination and discuss the available treatment options with the patient. Together they can then come up with a plan for the patient to gain a more attractive smile in the most effective and efficient manner possible.
