I keep hearing the term “smile makeover”—what is it? And is it for me?
A smile makeover is a comprehensive, individually-tailored process of improving the appearance of your smile. According to a survey completed by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, 9 out of 10 people feel that an attractive smile is an important social asset and 3 out of 4 agree that an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chance for career success—however, only 1 out 2 Americans are satisfied with their smile. A smile makeover is the solution to this problem.
A smile makeover involves using your facial appearance, skin tone, hair color, teeth (color, width, length, shape, and tooth display), gum tissue, and lips to determine and develop your ideal smile. Cosmetic dentistry procedures like dental veneers, implants, whitening, and clear braces can be used to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
But is it for you? The question to ask yourself is: are you satisfied with your smile? If you have concerns about tooth color, tooth shape, alignment or spacing, missing teeth, or a lack of harmony or balance in your overall smile, a smile makeover may be a good option for you. Make a consultation appointment with your dentist to learn what can be done to improve your smile.
