The smile we have is not always as straight or as white as we may hope for, resulting in a lack of self-confidence. Undergoing a smile makeover can result in an individual enjoying their smile in a more confident way because the teeth play a major role in the feeling of self-worth we all feel. A crooked, misaligned smile and discolored teeth make it difficult for any individual to enjoy their life with a great deal of confidence.
The Importance of Loving Your Smile
When one feels a lack of confidence due to problems with the smile, the entire life of an individual can be affected in a negative way. A smile makeover can take many forms. It can be as simple as a cleaning of the teeth, or as complex as undergoing a whitening process which can provide a brilliant finish to the teeth of any individual. Clean, white teeth are often cited as a memorable first-impression when meeting someone on a personal or professional basis. Prior to having a smile makeover, confidence issues can play a major role in problems such as depression and a lack of close personal relationships being formed.
Alongside whitening, the evolution of cosmetic dentistry has adopted both existing technologies and those which have been developed in recent years. Traditional braces are an option for those who are looking to make changes to their bite or who have misaligned teeth. Traditional braces can positively affect the smile by pulling the roots of the teeth into place over time, allowing the visible portion of the smile to align in a straight line. These braces are available in both wire and ceramic options. Many patients who do not require major changes to their bite opt to use clear plastic liners to realign their smile using a pain-free, speedy option.
A number of other options are available to aid in the development of a perfect smile. The use of porcelain veneers has become increasingly popular in recent years. Veneers are placed over the surface of the existing tooth and have both aesthetic and protective benefits for a patient.
Further options for a smile makeover include the use of dental implants which can be used to replace an existing tooth or teeth that must be removed. This option offers a permanent and long-lasting alternative to dentures, and it remains as one of the best options for improving the look of a smile.
