The Impact of a Smile Makeover

A lot can be said about one’s smile. After all, it is one of the first things we notice when we meet someone. A smile can leave a welcoming first impression, or depending on the condition of your teeth, it can leave much to be desired. If you have to think twice about putting your teeth on display then you may be an excellent candidate for a smile makeover. Dr. Marianna Farber with Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry in New York City performs smile makeovers on a routine basis and patients are thrilled with their results. A smile makeover can transform not only your smile, but your life as well. Best of all, a smile makeover will leave you smiling for years to come.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments among men and women in New York City. It is a personalized dental treatment plan that includes various dental procedures that aid in improving the look of your teeth, along with your general oral health. It can create a brighter, whiter, straighter, more beautiful smile that will allow you to smile freely, laugh without worry, and exude confidence.

How it can change your life

A smile makeover can provide an instant self-esteem boost. Some patients suffer through years of embarrassment and unhappiness due to the state of their teeth. Teeth in disrepair can affect potential relationships, job opportunities, and more. It’s hard to believe that one part of our body can have such an impact on how others think and feel about us, but we all know that first impressions matter. A smile makeover can restore not only your teeth, but also your self-confidence.

Reasons for a smile makeover

There are countless reasons as to why someone may be interested in pursuing a smile makeover. Chipped teeth are very common and are typically caused by some sort of injury to the mouth, or something as simple as biting down on food the wrong way. Cracked teeth are another reason why patients undergo a smile makeover. A cracked tooth is not something you want to ignore, as it can be easily repaired if you see a dentist sooner than later. If a cracked tooth goes untreated for too long it can cause much more damage and possibly require a crown or root canal to correct the issue. Discolored teeth are one of the top complaints that people have about their smiles. Coffee, wine, and cigarette smoke are all reasons why teeth become stained and yellow. Crooked and uneven teeth are also another top concern our New York City dental patients want to fix. A smile makeover can also correct crooked or missing teeth. Whatever it is that you dislike about your smile, a smile makeover can address your problem areas and results are so good that nobody will ever know you had any dental work performed.

What can be included in a smile makeover?

Whiter teeth

One of the most common procedures requested during a smile makeover is teeth whitening. A teeth whitening procedure is a quick and easy way to refresh your smile. Dr. Farber uses Ko¨R whitening gel treatments on patients that leave them with a brighter, more radiant smile.

Natural-looking restorations

Patients who want to get rid of older silver fillings, fill a cavity, or hide decay opt to go with tooth-colored fillings during their makeover. This is a natural looking option that helps to restore the function and strength of your teeth. An added bonus is that nobody will notice the fillings since they match the color of your existing teeth.

Straighter teeth

Teeth straightening methods have evolved tremendously in the last several years and now traditional braces aren’t necessary in order to correct crooked or uneven teeth. Dr. Farber uses Invisalign which involves making a mold of your mouth and then wearing trays that slowly shift your teeth over time. Invisalign requires a lot less maintenance when compared to traditional braces and still provides excellent results.

Replace missing teeth

If you’re struggling with missing teeth then dental implants may be a good option for you. A dental implant can correct an incomplete smile and remedy any unsightly gaps. Some patients may need just one dental implant to make a world of difference.

Restore your entire smile

One of the best ways to get a complete smile makeover is to select porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers can correct even the most complicated issues. Chipped teeth, crooked and discolored teeth, missing teeth, and teeth have gaps or are asymmetrical are all issues that can collectively be corrected with veneers. Porcelain veneers consist of a thin layer of tooth-like material that is placed over a patient’s real teeth and the end result is a beautiful, symmetrical smile that hides any trace of dental issues. If you have multiple problems with your teeth then veneers may provide the best solution as they can correct numerous dental issues at once.
