When you look in the mirror, does your smile reflect you accurately? Maybe your teeth are stained, chipped, or broken.
You might have lost teeth during an accident or have old, unattractive bridges, fillings, dentures, etc. If so, you are deprived of one of our most powerful social tools – an impressive smile.
If you are in unhappy with your smile, particularly if you feel there is more than one issue, the good news is that your Thornton Dental dentist has a solution – the smile makeover.
The smile makeover is a complete, thoroughly planned, and often quite economical approach to smile improvement or restoration; it is an approach that oftentimes improves dental health, confidence, and even success.
Our Thornton Dental offices are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a highly trained staff that makes it possible to completely reinvent your smile with a total smile makeover.
Smile at the Science!
According to the study, “The Impact of Whiter Teeth on Key First Impressions” attractive smiles lead to success. People who have whiter teeth have a higher chance of being hired, as well as being offered higher salaries. In fact, in simulated job interviews, 58 percent of the people who participated were hired and 53 percent got offered higher salaries after they whitened their teeth. To improve your professional standing, is it time to consider the impact of your smile?
People with straight teeth are also seen as smarter and more accomplished. But the effects of a cinema-star smile go even deeper than that. In the study, two-thirds of Americans indicated they were more likely to remember someone with attractive features, such as nice teeth, more so than someone with features they don’t find attractive. This means that if you have an unattractive smile, you are forgettable.
To make maximum positive impact, you need a great smile!
Smile Problems and Makeover Fixes
A smile makeover can fix a wide range of issues, from the purely cosmetic to the functional. Here are just some of the issues that a smile makeover can help with.
Solving tooth discoloration depends on what causes your discoloration. Surface stains caused by food and drink can be fixed with in-office teeth whitening, which can often improve dingy teeth by many shades. However, if you have deeper stains caused by medications, injury, or disease, tooth whitening may not work. In this case porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be called for.
Chipped or cracked teeth take away from your smile. These problems can be addressed with a porcelain veneer over the affected tooth. A veneer can be matched in shape and color to your other teeth, so will be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Dental bonding is another option to restore a tooth’s shape.
The case of a veneer treatment demonstrates why a smile makeover is a great approach. If you are getting your teeth whitened, the veneer can be matched to the expected new shade – combining the treatments makes them more aesthetically attractive.
Crooked teeth are not only unattractive, but can also cause a problem with your bite. If you have minor misalignment, porcelain veneers can “straighten” your teeth cosmetically, without ever wearing braces.
Gaps between teeth can be solved with porcelain veneers or dental bonding.
Severe misalignment can harm your bite and put added stress on teeth, eventually causing them to break. Crooked teeth also create spaces that are difficult to clean, making cavities more likely. In these cases Invisalign®or traditional braces can be used to straighten your teeth. Invisalign® uses smooth plastic, removable trays that slip over your teeth discreetly and gradually nudge them into alignment. Invisalign® is more comfortable and often faster than traditional wire braces.
Missing teeth can trigger future complications down the road by allowing other teeth to rotate or slide into the empty space. This destroys tooth alignment and creates bite problems. Dental implants are often a perfect solution for this. Other options for missing teeth include traditional dentures or dental bridges supported by crowns.
These are only some of the great treatment options that can be included in a smile makeover!
