What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is treatment for cosmetic issues that affect your teeth. Often, your cosmetic dentist will use several treatment options, often combined into one or two appointments, to restore your smile to its former perfection. Some common procedures used in smile makeovers include:
- Teeth whitening
- Porcelain veneers
- Inlays or onlays
- Cosmetic crowns
The exact combination of procedures is determined ahead of time, during a consultation with your dentist. During this consultation, you’ll talk about your goals for your teeth and what can be done to reach your goals and give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Deciding on a Smile Makeover
If you are unhappy with the way your teeth look, talk to your dentist about what can be done to improve your smile. Before and after pictures of other clients will give you a good idea of what your teeth will look like after your cosmetic work. The more you know about what to expect after your treatment, the more likely you will be to be pleased with your final results, so be sure to ask plenty of questions during your consultation.
When you are looking for a cosmetic dentist to do your makeover, talk to your friends and family to see if they have had work done in the past. If they’ve had their teeth worked on and have been happy with the results, you can make use of their referrals to choose the dentist you want to work with. You can also look online for dentists and use their photo galleries of previous patients to get an idea of what kind of work they do. Be sure to look at the kind of training the dentist has as well as his areas of expertise before making your final decision.
