In some cases, a patient will need to have the foundation of their smile repaired before any cosmetic enhancements can be completed. This is good news: If you have always considered yourself an impossible candidate for a new smile because of the poor health of your teeth, think again. It’s possible to get the smile you’ve always wanted, even if you have gum disease or other serious oral health problems.
It doesn’t matter how old or young you are. Simply enough, the desire for a better smile and healthier teeth makes you an ideal smile makeover candidate. The word “makeover” brings to mind thoughts of complete overhauls and serious time in the dentist’s chair. For some people, that is the situation. But for the majority of patients, smile makeovers are not so intensive. In fact, they may only include one or two procedures.
No matter what kind of situation you find yourself in, no matter what condition your dental health is in, a smile makeover is possible. It may be necessary to undergo gum disease treatment first to repair the groundwork of your smile so that any cosmetic and restorative repairs will have solid footing, but from there, anything is possible. Invisalign and teeth whitening. Dental implants and crowns in a day. Porcelain veneers. The options are many, and they all lead to a flawless, white, stunning smile.
You don’t have to know what kind of smile makeover you need! It’s your cosmetic and restorative dentist’s job to recognize what your teeth and gums are calling for and make recommendations that suit your lifestyle, budget, and oral health. All you need to be certain of is that you are determined to improve your appearance, confidence, and the performance of your teeth and smile. From there, you and your dentist will work together to determine the best plan to reach your goals.
If you are feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, are reluctant to smile because of your oral health, or worry about the solidity of your teeth in their sockets, then it’s time to make a change. Here are some of the complaints and concerns that should encourage you to make an appointment with your dentist:
Whether you want whiter teeth or straight teeth or something else entirely, a smile makeover will turn your smile into the feature that defines your appearance – in a good way. Your teeth will be shaped and sized to suit your face, particularly if you opt for porcelain veneers. Then there are porcelain crowns and tooth-colored fillings can round out a smile that is spoiled by problem teeth here and there. And dental implants can replace missing teeth that you thought were gone for good.
Whatever cosmetic or corrective issues you want to address, a smile makeover plan will be devised to give you the stunning, straight, white smile you’ve always wanted. Afraid of too many procedures and treatments that take too long? In many cases, porcelain veneers and crowns can be placed in just one day; teeth whitening happens in a snap; and sedation dentistry is always an option so you can “sleep” away your appointment and wake up to a brand new grin.
And know this: Even if you haven’t been to a dentist for a very long time, even if your oral health has fallen into great disrepair, it isn’t too late to take control of your oral health. Don’t allow yourself to suffer any longer with tooth or gum issues that affect every aspect of your life. Some people put love on the back burner – they’re afraid to date anyone because they’re ashamed of their smile. Other individuals never climb up the career ladder because they’d rather stay in the background than put a spotlight on their broken-down smile. And some people are simply too busy taking care of everyone else in their life to properly take care of themselves. Put your own needs and goals in the driver’s seat – your overall health will thank you for it, and your oral health will never be the same again, in a good way.
