The arrival of spring brings with it thoughts of Mother’s Day, weddings, graduations and other big events. If you or someone you love has wanted to improve their smile, a smile makeover makes a great gift. Much more than just a cosmetic procedure, a smile makeover can make a dramatic improvement in a person’s self-confidence and happiness.
Anyone who has less than perfect teeth knows that it can be embarrassing to smile, especially for pictures. Today, there are more options than ever for improving teeth and smiles.
A smile makeover can be anything from teeth whitening to dental implants. It can consist of one or more procedures, and they may be purely cosmetic, such as teeth whitening or veneers; restorative; or both. Restorative procedures involve replacing missing or broken teeth. This can be done with dentures, partial dentures, or dental implants. Restorative procedures improve the health of the mouth and the ability to enjoy food, as well as having cosmetic benefits.
Some problems that a smile makeover can correct include stained or yellow teeth, gaps between teeth, broken or chipped teeth, missing teeth, and short teeth.
A smile makeover in Virginia Beach starts with a consultation, during which the patient and the dentist will discuss the patient’s desired outcome. The dentist will then perform a comprehensive oral exam including X-rays, digital imaging and an impression of the teeth. The dentist will create a customized plan for the patient’s smile makeover, taking into account facial shape, skin color, hair color and lip shape and fullness. The dentist’s goal is to give the patient an ideal smile that will look and feel natural.
