Smiles are one of the first things people notice about one another and can heavily influence the first impression that we are able to make. Many people have minor or major cosmetic dental concerns that lead them to feel the need to hide their smiles or to be self-conscious about their appearance, significantly impacting their day-to-day interactions with others.

What is a smile makeover?


A smile makeover is a combination of several cosmetic dental treatments that are used to improve the appearance of an individual’s smile. There are a variety of cosmetic dental treatments that can be used depending on the specific needs of the patient, including teeth whitening, bonding, veneers, bridges, implants, or dental crowns. The end result is to provide the individual with a perfect smile that will boost their confidence, effectively improving their self-image and the first impressions they are able to provide to others. The specific procedures that are chosen for each individual patient are used to correct aesthetic concerns such as chipped or cracked teeth, misalignment, discoloration, and even decayed teeth, providing medical benefits as well as a beautiful smile also translates into a healthy, functional smile.

What are the benefits of a smile makeover?


Personalized smile makeovers provide both physical and psychological benefits by restoring an individual’s confidence in their appearance and smile, they can interact with others more comfortably, improving first impressions and boosting happiness in general. The physical benefits include all the specific results that are provided by the cosmetic procedures, providing different benefits from person to person depending on what has been corrected. Common cosmetic concerns that are ameliorated through a smile makeover include:

• Discoloration such as brownish or yellowing teeth

• Increased aesthetic proportions between the gums and the teeth (specifically treats a “gummy” smile by increasing the size of the teeth)

• Excess spacing or gapping in between teeth

• Broken, chipped, or cracked teeth

Fixing many of the cosmetic concerns such as misalignment, gapping, or broken teeth will also result in improved function and bite of the teeth, making chewing, eating in general, and speaking much easier as well. Improving the appearance and functionality of your smile allows you to interact with others more comfortably and no longer feel the need to hide your smile.

Who is a good candidate for a smile makeover?


Patients who have more than one cosmetic concern with their smile and teeth would benefit from a smile makeover. Often, multiple types of treatments are required to improve the appearance of the teeth and smile anyway, with many people wanting to address multiple concerns such as gapping and discoloration, or misalignment and prominence of the gums, at some point during cosmetic dental treatments, so why not get all the necessary treatments performed under one roof for your convenience. Ideal candidates will include adults who have finished growing and all their teeth have come in to reduce the risk of shifting of the teeth once the procedures are completed. If you only require a single veneer or just need a session of teeth whitening, you will likely be better off just going to get the single treatment. Smile makeovers are intended for those who have multiple cosmetic concerns from which they would benefit from having treated.

How do you prepare for a smile makeover? 


All patients considering a smile makeover will need to complete a consultation with a dentist to assess the health of the teeth and gums and to determine which specific procedures would be best suited to provide the patient with their desired results. Smile makeovers are also most successful when performed on healthy teeth and gums, so if the dentist finds any indications of periodontal disease or other concerns that can be easily treated, they will do so before commencing any of the cosmetic treatments. It is also recommended that before the consultation, patients try to determine what exactly they wish to improve in their smile and if there is anything specific that they would like to change or any specific goals that they have for the final appearance to help guide the dentist to understand the expectations that the patient has and what is important for them to have done. It is also very important for patients to have reasonable expectations regarding the final results as well as the timeline required to achieve those results, so be prepared for the process to take a bit of time especially if the smile makeover is being completed for a specific event.
