It has been reported that nearly eighty percent of Americans are dissatisfied with their smiles. This is a surprisingly high number, given the fact that there are so many effective and safe cosmetic dentistry options available today. Many dentists are skilled and experienced at performing smile makeovers, which can transform a smile that makes you cringe into one that you proudly show off.

The first thing you should do is make a list of the things you dislike about your smile. Take this list with you to your dental appointment, because it is very likely that solutions are available to most of your dental problems.

Some common issues that patients often desire changing include:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Crooked or overlapping teeth
  • Overly prominent gums
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth

After you and your dentist discuss your goals, an examination of your mouth will be performed to see if your mouth is healthy. Your dentist will identify which characteristics can be altered or improved. Photos will be taken to use as a guide, as will measurements to determine the ideal size and shape of features that will complement your appearance. Your dentist will explain techniques and procedures that will help you achieve the goals of your smile makeover. Some of them may include bonding, crowns, teeth whitening, gum recontouring, orthodontics, veneers, implants, or dentures. With all of these types of techniques available, there is no reason to be discontent with your teeth and gums. Now is the time to discover how to get out of that category of people unhappy with their smile.
