Am I a good candidate for a smile makeover?

A smile makeover can completely transform your smile, boost your confidence and even improve your oral health. If you are considering a smile makeover, ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you smile with your mouth closed in pictures?
  • Does your smile make you feel self-conscious?
  • Is your laughter inhibited by your smile?
  • Would you feel more self-assured and confident if your smile was straighter, whiter or more balanced?
  • Are you dedicated to keeping your new smile healthy?

If the answer is “yes” to any of these questions, a smile makeover may be the treatment plan for you. People who suffer from chipped, broken, cracked, missing, stained, misaligned or uneven teeth are great candidates for the procedure. A complete smile makeover can address all these issues and often includes treatments such as dental crowns or implants, veneers, gum shaping, teeth whitening and more.

A successful smile makeover does require good overall and oral health and sound dental structure. Patients should also have healthy gums and not have any serious ailments or health issues that may preclude undergoing cosmetic dental procedures.

Candidates considering a smile makeover must also be committed to maintaining the health of their new smile following all treatments.

Young children may also not be ideal candidates for smile makeovers because their jaws are still growing. In some instances though, a smile makeover may be part of a child’s comprehensive orthodontic treatment plan.

Before deciding if a smile makeover is right for you, your Lansdowne cosmetic dentist will complete a thorough consultation and examination, taking into account your dental history, needs and aesthetic desires.
