Are you struggling with crooked or broken teeth? Is chewing your food more difficult due to a bite misalignment? Do your teeth make you feel insecure whenever you smile? 

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, it may be time to consider cosmetic dentistry to fix any issues you may be having with your smile.

Sixty-one percent of Americans would change something about their smile if given the opportunity to do so. Continue reading to learn how a smile makeover can help you embrace your beautiful smile.

Benefits of Getting Your Smile Back

If you are unhappy with your smile, it can take its toll on your self-esteem. A smile makeover can help you improve your self-confidence, by addressing discolored, crooked, or broken teeth. Once you have your smile back, you will start to feel better.

It’s possible that if you aren’t smiling because you are self-conscious of your smile, it could be holding you back. According to a Career Builder survey, job recruiters notice how you present yourself. In fact, 38% of job recruiters listed “lack of smiling” as an offsetting quality during job interviews among “lack of eye contact” and “fidgeting in your seat”. 

Your tooth imperfections may lead to health conditions. A cracked tooth can allow a bacterial infection to infiltrate your body more easily. By dealing with these issues (and getting your beautiful smile back!), you may be improving the overall quality of your life.

What Procedures Might a Smile Makeover Include?

A smile makeover involves different cosmetic treatments that can address several types of dental issues that an individual may be having. These issues might include:

  • Discoloration of teeth
  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • Tooth loss
  • Bite misalignment
  • Crooked teeth
  • Receding gums

Orthodontics is a great idea for teenagers dealing with crooked teeth or adults who never had the chance to get braces when they were younger. While a teenager may be fine with braces, an adult’s lifestyle may not be ideal for having braces. Thankfully, clear aligners are an option for a larger percentage of the population.

Teeth whitening for a bright smile is one of the most common smile makeover treatment options. It’s a great way to brighten up your smile and make you feel good about having bright, white teeth.

When your teeth cannot be whitened naturally or with bleach, you may consider getting dental veneers. Veneers cover your imperfections in the teeth. Veneers can also help when you are suffering from a cracked tooth or lack of enamel (enamel hypoplasia). 

Dental implants are ideal for those dealing with tooth loss that is affecting how they portray themselves because of their smile. Though getting dental implants can take time, they are ideal for those who have a few teeth they’d like to replace.

Gum contouring is ideal for anyone dealing with a “gummy” smile. This treatment can remove the excess gum covering your teeth to extend the crowns.
