One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. Imperfect teeth can lower your self-esteem and hold you back from revealing your true potential. People often underestimate how important a great smile is and how it can make a difference to their life. Below, I’ve listed just a few ways in which a smile makeover can transform you.
It’s Fast and Low Cost
A lot of people are put off cosmetic dentistry because they’re worried about long, drawn out trips to the dentist and the terrifyingly high costs that come with it. Fortunately, we now have access to cheap cosmetic dentistry and new dental technology such as CEREC software, which quickly takes impressions of your mouth though a camera and creates a 3D model so that your dentist can quickly and accurately plan what needs to be done and create porcelain restorations. This process allows you to have a smile makeover in just one day, eliminating any apprehension or anxiety that you may have had in the past.
It’s Tailored to You
Depending on the person, a smile makeover can be as simple as teeth whitening and having braces. Alternatively, people with missing teeth can receive dental implants and chipped teeth can be improved with veneers. Before any cosmetic dental procedures, your dentist will also consider your facial structure to give you the best smile. Discussing options with your dentist is a must, and because everyone’s teeth are different, your smile makeover will be completely tailored to you.
It Can Improve Your Health
Going to the dentist to sort misaligned, chipped, or missing teeth can ultimately make you feel more comfortable in the long run. Part of a smile makeover is the improvement of oral hygiene. Your dentist will take a look at your teeth and gums to make sure that any problems, such as cavities or infections, are sorted first.
It Improves Your Appearance
Over time, teeth go through a lot of wear and tear. Teeth can teeth can appear shorter because of teeth grinding, they can be discoloured, or they could be cracked. Having a smile makeover can improve not only your teeth, but can alter your facial appearance for the better. Having aesthetically pleasing pearly whites can make you look heathier and younger, can make your face look slimmer and can even make your lips look fuller. A smile makeover can give you the appearance you’ve always wanted.
It Gives You Confidence
One of the best things a smile makeover can do is build your self-confidence. No more tight-lipped smiles or feeling unhappy with yourself. You’ll feel more comfortable showing your teeth when you smile and you’ll start seeing yourself in a completely different light. Other people will also notice how happy and fulfilled you are. You can research online to see surveys like this one, which showed that more people are looking into cosmetic dentistry because having good teeth can give people the confidence they’re lacking.
It Can Lead to New Career Opportunities
A brighter smile and some confidence can make a big difference to your life and can open the door to many new opportunities. A bright smile can give you the professional look you’ve been searching for. With a great look, improved self-esteem and your usual hard-working manner, you may find that new career opportunities start to appear and you’ll maybe get that promotion or raise you’ve been waiting for.
It Can Improve Your Social Life
A new smile will make you feel more positive and beautiful than a new outfit or a trip to the salon. You may find that your social life improves because you feel more relaxed when mingling and going out. You no longer have to be afraid of joining that group selfie.
It Can Improve Your Love Life
If you’ve been hiding from your love life because you’ve been worried about a potential love interest seeing your wonky or stained teeth, then a smile makeover can change that. A beautiful smile can make you feel more attractive and pave the way to new relationships. With a smile makeover, you won’t have to feel embarrassed about showing your teeth while laughing at your date’s terrible jokes.
