Benefits of Smile Makeover

Smile makeovers bring a variety of benefits starting with improving self-confidence. Professional and personal interactions can be affected when patients worry about how their smile appears. Oral health is another benefit of a smile makeover as it eases concerns over gum disease and tooth decay.

Smile Makeover and The Process

Smile makeovers usually begin with a consultation where a professional dental associate will assess the teeth and gums and recommend a course of action. The makeover process will depend on the tooth structure and their desired result. Aesthetic zones like facial structure and smile arch – formed when they smile – are taken into account for setting realistic expectations. 


Common Considerations for a Smile Makeover

Face shape, tooth shape, skin tone, and hair color are few pointers to be considered before beginning the procedure. There is also a focus on spacing and alignment. Dental staff may choose to close smaller gaps and fix misalignments with several processes such as porcelain veneers or dental bonding. Patients will also be consulted on the preferred choice of materials and treatments to not only match their budget but to maintain the best level of oral health. Patients always have the final say in what their smiles should look like and our dental practitioners will respect these wishes, including them in the final treatment plan.


How to Maintain Smile Makeover Results

Patients need to modify their oral hygiene habits to ensure their smile restoration results are long lasting. Highly abrasive toothpaste and rigorous brushing habits can cause damage by scratching the surface of the artificial teeth causing them to lose luster after the restoration. 


Flossing is beneficial for increasing the lifespan of a patient’s smile makeover because it helps remove bacteria and plaque buildup which can lead to tooth decay, undermining the surgical procedure. 


Alcohol based mouthwash can have negative effects on this type of dental procedure. It can be corrosive to composite fillings and bridges. Over time, alcohol content can minimize the effects of restorations. High sugar intake in foods, coffee, tea, alcoholic beverages, tobacco, and soda  can also be detrimental, staining the dental appliances. Avoid chewing or biting harder objects like staples, pens, bottle caps and metal.
