Summer may be turning to fall in the coming days, but although temperatures will start to dip and the warmth of the sun will begin to fade, now is the perfect time to consider brightening up the world with your smile by considering a smile makeover. Making over your smile typically doesn’t just happen in a day, but rather takes some planning so that you can transform the aspects of your teeth that leave you less-than-satisfied to create a beautiful new smile.
Since most smile makeovers entail a number of different restorative and cosmetic dental procedures, it’s best to have a consultation with your dentist to discuss your desires and then to map out a plan for how to achieve the smile of your dreams. This process can be as simple as a single tooth whitening procedure or a stint wearing some Invisalign braces or it can be an extensive series of dental treatments requiring surgery, restorations, enhancements and more.
The key to being satisfied with the results, as well as the process to get there, is to work closely with a dentist you can trust. If you don’t feel like your dentist is on the same page as you or you don’t feel comfortable with the recommendations he or she provides, this is definitely one time that you may want to get a second or even third opinion. In fact, if you are going to require a good deal of work be done on your mouth to achieve your desired outcome, it may be worth getting an additional opinion before you start no matter what. Achieving your desired results relies on a series of well thought out and well executed plans.
So who can benefit from making over their smile? Just about anyone who is unhappy with the way their smile looks when they pull up those facial muscles and reveal their pearly or not-so-pearly whites to the world is a potential candidate for this type of process. As mentioned above, it is not a single treatment but rather a series of customized treatments that are designed to take a person’s smile from where it currently is to where the person would like it to be. Each person’s tooth and gums have a different look and level of health, so the treatment needs to be personalized to meet any specific needs and desires.
If you have been thinking for awhile about what it would be like to have a more beautiful smile, there’s nothing like the present time to consider a smile makeover. Fall brings about changes – changes in colors, temperatures and even in our wardrobes. This can also be the perfect time to consider some beneficial changes to your smile that can give you reason to smile.
