Just about everyone has something that they would prefer to change about their smile, but some people have more issues than others. In fact, many people would prefer it if they could change every aspect of their teeth—shape, size, and color.

If you’ve ever wished you could do that, a smile makeover could be perfect for you! If you want to know more about this style of cosmetic dentistry, here’s a guide that can give you some useful information.

What is a Smile Makeover?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to the parts of dentistry that are mostly used to address aesthetic issues. Yellow teeth, for example, aren’t necessarily a health problem in themselves; that’s why teeth whitening is considered a cosmetic procedure. Other cosmetic treatments include veneers, direct bonding, and even Invisalign and braces, among others.

A smile makeover is the term used to describe employing some combination of more than one of these treatments to beautify someone’s smile. Some people need more attention than others, and smile makeovers are perfect for these people.

What are the Benefits of a Smile Makeover?

If you’re in need of serious changes in the quality of your smile, a smile makeover can make a world of difference in how you look and feel. For example:

  • Better Confidence: Many people who need cosmetic dentistry don’t even realize how big of an impact it could have on their life until they think about it. Serious aesthetic issues can affect how others see you, but more importantly, it affects how you see yourself. By addressing them, you can approach your life with increased confidence.
  • Better Health: If you have severely misaligned teeth, studies show that that can have a negative impact on your ability to chew up nutritious foods, like leafy greens, effectively. Misaligned teeth are a little bit harder to clean, leading to an increased chance of developing gum disease or tooth decay.
  • Better Career: When you interview for a new job or ask for a promotion, the thing that people tend to look for most is confidence. There’s no better way to do that than to show off a big, beautiful smile!
