It is worth noting, though, that usually, the first thing another person notices about you is your smile. And if you have yellow, dingy or broken teeth, that does not deliver a good first impression. A smile makeover can help you to leave the impression you want.
What Is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover is nothing more nor less than whatever treatment or treatments you might need to give you a better smile. What a smile makeover is not, though, is restorative, except as a side effect. What we mean by this is that with a smile makeover, appearance is foremost. If the treatment also gives additional functionality to your mouth, that is a bonus. Dental crowns, for instance, if installed as part of a smile makeover, are not intended to do anything more than improve your smile. If they also give you better functionality, then that is a pleasing side effect. Conversely, if you have crowns installed to fix breakage, and your smile improves, the better smile is the side effect of the restorative dentistry treatment.
Can Anyone Have a Smile Makeover?
Usually. If you are not suffering from tooth decay or gum disease, your dentist will be more than happy to provide you with a smile makeover. If your oral health is substandard, though, that will have to be corrected before you can consider cosmetic dentistry procedures.
What Procedures Can I Have?
You can have as many cosmetic dentistry procedures as you want to give you the smile you are hoping for. Often, all you will require is a whitening treatment, and this in and of itself constitutes a “smile makeover.” Other treatments could include porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or even dental implants. The treatments you choose will depend on two things: the extent of the damage that needs to be corrected, and the extent of your budget.
If you have dental imperfections that you would like to have corrected, you could be a candidate for a smile makeover. To learn more, call Platte Valley Dental Care in Platte City, Missouri at 816-858-2027. We will be happy to meet with you and talk about ways to improve your smile.
