How Can I Improve My Smile?
One thing that completes one’s beauty is one smile. When you have a beautiful smile, you smile more, and it makes you look more beautiful. Unfortunately, some of us don’t have the smile we want due to various dental problems. Luckily, you can get a perfect smile through the help of smile makeovers.
A smile makeover is a cosmetic procedure performed to improve the appearance of a person’s smile. There are various procedures, and the right one for you will depend on the problem affecting your smile. In this blog, we will discuss more about smile makeovers to help you make an informed decision about which procedure to choose.
To get a perfect smile, here are a few things that your dentist will review.
Your Tooth Color
If your teeth don’t seem white anymore, there are various procedures the dentist can perform to restore their whiteness. One of the most common procedures is teeth whitening. However, if whitening does not work for you, the dentist can cover the discoloration with veneers or bonding.
Space and Alignment
You might have bright teeth, but if they are not properly aligned or there are wide gaps between them, your smile may not be as perfect as you would want it to be. Thankfully, you can correct this problem through various approaches, the orthodontic treatment being the most common. You can wear traditional metal braces, or you can go for clear aligners such as Invisalign® or ClearCorrect®.
However, if your problem is just wide gaps between teeth, it can be fixed through other approaches such as dental veneers and bonding. The dentist can cover the gaps with veneers instead of having to undergo months of orthodontic treatment. Typically, the dentist will suggest the most suitable treatment option.
If you are missing several teeth, your smile will be affected automatically. This is especially true if you are missing front teeth. Your smile will also be affected indirectly if you are missing back teeth. Your teeth will start moving towards the gaps, affecting your teeth’s alignment. Missing teeth also increases the risk of developing cavities and infections.
Luckily, your missing teeth can be replaced with artificial teeth that function and looks pretty much the same as your natural teeth. Among the best replacements are dental implants and bridges. You can still go for dentures, which are slightly cheaper than the two.
Lips and Cheeks
If your lips look so small or big, they can be adjusted through various cosmetic procedures so you can get the smile you deserve. Fuller lips and well-shaped cheeks are achieved through a combination of more than one cosmetic procedure. In most cases, your dentist will recommend you to an oral surgeon.
Problems Smile Makeovers Can Fix
There are various problems that can be fixed through these procedures. The most common problems are:
- Missing teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Broken teeth
- Wide gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Stained teeth
Enhancing your smile comes with many benefits, both physical and psychological. These benefits include:
Boosts Your Confidence
When you have a beautiful smile, you will appreciate your beauty more, and this can boost your confidence. In most cases, people who are not proud of their smiles are low on confidence.
Improves Your Oral Health
Cosmetic procedures improve more than just your smile. For example, when you have crooked teeth, it becomes challenging to maintain proper oral hygiene. Orthodontic treatment can enhance your smile and make it easy to brush and floss your teeth. Furthermore, you will put more effort into maintaining your sparkly smile.
Makes You A Happier Person
When you smile, your body releases the feel-good chemicals (endorphins). When your body releases endorphins, your mood is elevated. It does even not matter whether the smile is genuine. Unfortunately, if you are not proud of your smile, you will rarely smile. But if you believe you have a beautiful smile, you will smile more, which will make you a happier person.
Offers Streamlined Treatment
Typically, a smile makeover treatment plan will fix all problems affecting your smile. In most cases, the plans consist of more than one cosmetic procedure. After the treatment, you will have the perfect smile.
