How a Smile Makeover Treatment Can Improve Your Appearance

Posted on: October 10, 2019

A smile makeover is a combination of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures used to fix problems with the teeth and improve one's appearance. Though the main objective is to improve the appearance of the teeth, there are other advantages to getting a smile makeover.

The many potential benefits of smile makeovers

Numerous patients have found that a smile makeover has both expected and unexpected benefits for oral health as well as life overall.

Increased confidence

A person with yellow, crooked or damaged teeth may be reluctant to smile in public due to embarrassment about the appearance of their smile and wanting to avoid being ridiculed. After getting a smile makeover, an individual may feel more confident smiling in public due to being more happy with the way their teeth look.

Improvement in general health

People’s oral health and general health are connected, which is one reason why dentists tell patients to practice good oral hygiene. When a person goes for a smile makeover, the dentist will examine the patient's mouth to determine how to fix the teeth. The dentist will also clean the patient’s teeth and gums during the procedure, which helps to improve general health.

Pain relief

If one undergoes a smile makeover because of missing teeth, the makeover may relieve the pain caused by having an unprotected space in the mouth. The missing teeth can be replaced with dental implants, which act like the patient’s natural teeth. If the pain is caused by a bite problem, this issue may also be fixed with a smile makeover, allowing the patient to eat any foods without worrying about pain.

Improvement in career

It is important to understand that having perfect teeth will not get anyone a new job. However, if a person is already qualified for a job, employers are more likely to hire someone who looks presentable and has an attractive smile, especially if the job requires interacting with customers or clients.

Protection of facial structure

If a patient has missing teeth, the bones in the jaw can lose density where the teeth are absent. This loss of bone density can lead to the collapse of the facial structure, making a person look older than they are. Someone who undergoes a smile makeover to fix the missing teeth using dental implants does not have to worry about those gaps compromising jaw bone density or facial structure.

Improvement in social life

As previously mentioned, undergoing a smile makeover often can increase one’s confidence. Newly restored confidence can in turn improve a patient's social life, allowing them to meet new people and form new friendships, no longer held back by concerns about the way their teeth look.

Conclusion

A smile makeover can be a convenient way to fix problems with teeth and improve one's appearance while giving a person more confidence in their smile. A dentist can tell you more about what procedures can help you take advantage of these benefits and more.
