If you’re unhappy with your smile, you have company, and a lot of it. Studies have found that more than one-third of American adults are unhappy with their smiles. While your smile may sound like a trivial thing, we put a lot of weight into how a person’s teeth look. A broken smile can negatively affect your social life, professional prospects, and romantic relationships.
The idea of correcting your smile may be daunting, however, particularly if you have multiple dental needs. Who has the time for multiple appointments and consultations? With a smile makeover, you may not have to worry about multiple appointments and may be able to transform your smile in just one trip.
Are you interested in a complete smile makeover? If so, come see the team at Mark Kramer, DDS in Tustin, California. Dr. Kramer and his team are proud of their patient-centric focus and the exceptional results their patients see. In this blog, Dr. Kramer explains smile makeovers and five reasons why they may be right for your aesthetic goals.
You want to save time
One of the core ideas of a smile makeover is that it combines a number of treatments into one cohesive treatment plan. You’ll have an extensive consultation with Dr. Kramer at which you will discuss your aesthetic goals and how your ideal smile would look. He’ll then create a custom treatment plan that’s personally tailored to you. Dr. Kramer will combine as many treatments as possible; in some cases a smile makeover can be performed in just one appointment.
You are cost-conscious
One of the biggest barriers to some cosmetic dental treatments is cost. If your dental insurance doesn’t cover what you want, you could be shelling out a lot of cash. While every smile makeover is different and costs vary, the combined treatments of a smile makeover may help you save some money compared with the cost of multiple appointments.
You want to reimagine your smile
Many tooth issues develop over time — a small crack here and a little discoloration there — until one day you realize that a lot of things have added up. In cases like these, it can be hard to picture what a new smile would actually look like. With a smile makeover, Dr. Kramer will be able to show you how he can transform your smile, like an architect with blueprints for a new building.
You need a brighter smile
Anyone who has ever painted a room will tell you how much a brighter color can improve how things look.Teeth whitening is often included in a smile makeover, especially when the makeover calls for veneers. New porcelain shell veneers will match the color of the whitening to give you a full, bright smile.
You are considering veneers
Cosmetic imperfections can weigh down a smile. Veneers are the perfect solution. These caps for your teeth cover imperfections and can be shaped to give you a perfect smile. Veneers work for teeth that are:
- Cracked, chipped, or broken
- Too large or too small
- Widely spaced, crowded, or crooked
Often, the combination of veneers and whitening is all that’s needed for a truly smile-changing makeover.
