If you’re one of the many people that needs more than one dental procedure to improve your smile, a smile makeover may be the perfect choice for you. A smile makeover is the process of improving the overall appearance of the smile of a single person through a series of cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers, dental implants, teeth whitening, tooth colored fillings, etc. Not only are you improving the look of your smile, but a smile makeover will also have additional benefits:
Self-esteem and confidence. Increasing self-esteem and confidence are one of the main reasons that people are opting for smile makeovers in the first place. There is no shame in spending money to improve your smile, especially when it includes a boost to your self-esteem and self-confidence.
Corrected bites. There are many cases, especially in orthodontics, braces and invisible braces like Invisalign aren’t just used for aesthetic reasons. Many times smile makeovers are done to correct a bite, which can also help improve or fix the function of a patient’s teeth and help prevent gum disease.
Jaw atrophy prevention. Patients with missing teeth are candidates for dental implants, which are great for preventing jaw atrophy, also known as jawbone deterioration. Dental implants also maintain a youthful and beautiful smile.
Tooth decay and cavity prevention. When a patient’s teeth are chipped or broken, have excessive gaps in between teeth, or cavities, it can all eventually lead to worsening dental problems. While cavity fillings are not a cosmetic dentistry procedure, having a tooth-colored fillings or porcelain crowns seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, which means patients no longer have to sacrifice aesthetics over function when it comes to preventing further dental complications.
