Smile makeovers: The art and science of a more appealing smile
If you would like to improve the appearance of your teeth, you may be thinking in terms of a single cosmetic dentistry treatment such as teeth whitening or white fillings. In reality, it may be that you need a combination of treatments to truly enhance your smile. This is where a smile makeover comes into its own.
No two smile makeovers are the same. The idea is to look at your individual case – your oral health, overall health, how your teeth look and function – and provide you with the treatments you need to make your smile look as attractive and appealing as possible. If your budget is limited, your dentist will be able to advise you on which treatments would give you the best outcome for the amount you have to spend. They may also offer finance arrangements to help you increase your budget or spread the repayments.
Above all else, a smile makeover brings art and science together. It’s about helping your teeth function properly when you bite and chew, as well as improving their appearance. Small touches can make a big difference in the hands of a dental professional.
The aim is to give you a smile that complements your overall look and corrects any issues you currently have with your teeth. This means that your dentist will look at your overall facial structure, including the shape of your face and the contour of your lips, to understand how enhancements to your teeth can help your smile look its best.
What treatments might a smile makeover include?
Smile makeovers really can include any dental treatment available through your chosen practice. We can help reduce a gummy smile, fix chipped teeth, improve the health of your gums, close a gappy smile, straighten crooked teeth, address areas of discolouration and much more.
Here at Harwood Dental Care, we might begin by helping you to become orally fit and addressing the symptoms of gum disease, for example, or repairing damaged teeth. We might also recommend dental crowns, veneers, implants, white fillings, teeth whitening, and/or clear braces.
With a smile makeover, there are usually different treatment stages. This is so that we can address different issues in the most logical and effective way. Before the makeover process begins, you’ll always be given a full breakdown of the treatment plan, so you understand what’s happening when and why, as well as what to expect.
Figures from various sources estimate that up to 40% of adults as dissatisfied with some aspect of their smile. The holistic approach of a smile makeover means that we are able to bring together the benefits of a unique combination of treatments for your exact needs. It’s a privilege to see our patients grow in confidence at every stage of their smile makeovers here in Bolton.
