The girls in the hit musical Annie said it best, “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.”
Everyone deserves a radiant smile that allows them to fully express themselves, make great first impressions, and never feel self-conscious. If you are someone that feels nervous about what other people are thinking of you every time you smile, then this is the article for you.
Smile makeovers are a dental service that focuses on the actual aesthetics of your smile so that you never have to feel self-conscious again.
Keep reading to learn the elements of a smile makeover and how you can schedule your appointment!
The Elements of a Smile Makeover
A smile makeover consists of services that focus on the aesthetics of your smile rather than on the dental health side of things. It is important to continue scheduling routine dental appointments every 6 months to stay on top of your health.
Every smile is different, that’s why we create customized smile makeovers for our clients so that they can leave feeling beautiful. Below are the different services that you can try to achieve the smile of your dreams!
One of the first signs of aging is yellowing or stained teeth. The younger we are, the whiter our teeth are and they start to change. Drinking tea, red wine, coffee, or smoking are all ways our teeth can become discolored and stained.
One of the simplest and most effective ways to improve your smile and age gracefully is to schedule a teeth whitening treatment. At the Newbury Dental Group, just one in-office whitening treatment can brighten your smile by 8 shades in a single visit!
If that doesn’t work for you, we also can offer teeth whitening solutions that fit in with your own schedule. How we do this is by creating a customized teeth whitening tray that you can utilize in the comfort of your own home. The teeth whitening tray will be made in a dental lab and be fitted to your mouth exactly so that there is no discomfort in whitening your smile.
If your teeth are severely stained or damaged in any way, a more suitable treatment option may be dental veneers. Dental veneers are a thin covering for the visible part of your tooth that can greatly increase the radiance of your smile.
We create natural-looking dental veneers that will fit perfectly with your smile and elevate your grin. Beyond just creating a bright white smile, this solution can help with the following:
- Closing any small gaps in your smile
- Ensuring teeth are the same length
- Cover dark stains
- Hide any chips or cracks in your teeth
Dental Crowns and Implants
If some of your teeth have faced more serious damage, a dental crown might be the best solution for you. A dental crown is made of ceramics or porcelain and is shaped to fit over the remaining tooth to appear good as new! This will likely increase your comfort level as well so it goes beyond just an aesthetic solution.
Once the crown is on your damaged tooth, nothing can further touch or damage the injured tooth. This will actually lead to the underlying tooth strengthening over time.
If you had a crown put on your tooth previously, it may have been made of metal. Many people opt to replace their metal crown with a more natural-looking, all-white material like ceramic or porcelain for a healthier-looking smile.
Like veneers, a dental crown can also fix other imperfections like a radiant white tooth, closing small gaps, and restoring chips or cracks.
Dental implants are a bit more serious and are needed if you are missing any teeth. Adults missing teeth is actually quite common for a number of reasons, and you are not alone if you have gaps in your smile.
A dental implant is a way to completely replace the missing tooth. Not only will this fill in the holes in your smile but it will improve your overall life! You will be able to chew as normal with the tooth without worrying about taking out a retainer or losing the tooth.
A dental implant is a bit of a more serious procedure. What it involves is implanting a metal rod that is attached through the gums to the actual jawbone. On top of the metal rod, your dental surgeon will attach the artificial tooth. This is a durable and permanent solution for a missing tooth.
Maintain Your Smile Makeover
After you have achieved a radiant smile, it is essential that you keep up with maintenance. For example, if additional teeth whitening treatments are needed over time, staying on top of scheduling these will help you maintain a gorgeous grin.
If you go with veneers, it is possible that they may need to be replaced or maintained by a dentist over time as well.
Finally, the most important element of maintaining a beautiful smile is by keeping up with an excellent dental hygiene routine. Flossing every day, brushing your teeth at least twice a day, and scheduling dental appointments every 6 months are essential.
