Am I a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?

Do you tend to smile with your mouth closed? Then you may be aware that your smile has a big impact on how you’re perceived on a daily basis, especially if you’re insecure about how your teeth look.

Even studies confirm that people who have pearly white smiles are perceived to be more charismatic. 

But you don’t have to hide your smile forever. There are many ways to improve your smile, no matter how much damage your teeth have endured over the years. 

Want to brighten up the room with your smile? Read on as our specialist, Peter K. Lee, breaks down your options and reveals who’s a good candidate for a smile makeover.

Behind the scenes of a Hollywood smile

Stains and yellowing of the teeth will occur over the years no matter how often you brush and floss. Here’s how we can help you achieve an attention-grabbing smile regardless of how damaged your teeth have become.

Whitening, brightening, and stains removal

If your teeth and gums are in good health, whitening and brightening are the first steps to a million-dollar smile. Stains and yellowing are cosmetic issues that are fairly easy to remedy. 

You can choose from in-office laser whitening or professional-grade take-home kits. Both methods are effective.

Hiding chips and worn down teeth

If your cosmetic issues can’t be solved by professional whitening or whitening kits, don’t despair. Worn down teeth, chipped teeth, and a myriad of other small flaws can be easily hidden by veneers. 

Veneers are wafer-thin shells that our specialist places over the front of your teeth to give your smile a flawless look. Many celebrities wear them, as veneers are stain-resistant and eliminate the need for regular whitening sessions.

If you’re dealing with only a few small chips or discolored teeth due to decay, our specialist may also recommend dental bonding, crowns, inlays, or onlays to hide these imperfections.

Filling in the gaps 

Missing teeth are no longer a reason to hide your smile, especially when there are so many ways you can fix the issue.

Dental implants remain a popular choice because they can prevent the loss of bone density in the jaw and structural changes to the face. If you’re missing several teeth, our specialist can also help you with customized partial or full dentures.

Who’s a good candidate for a smile makeover?

A smile makeover is considered a light procedure for cosmetic purposes. But even if you’re missing one or several teeth, you can still achieve your goal of having a flawless smile and a row of perfectly aligned teeth. 

Smile makeovers are customized, and if you’re wondering about what the final results will look like, you can ask Dr. Lee for a digital simulation of the final results of the makeover.
