Are You a Good Candidate For a Smile Makeover?

Do you love your smile? For many people, the answer is no. If you’re bothered by discolored teeth, crooked teeth, or other issues when you look in the mirror, you might find yourself hiding your smile more often than you’re showing it off.

An imperfect smile can replace feeling confident with feeling self-conscious, making it hard to love your teeth. But with personalized cosmetic dentistry, you can rebuild your smile from the ground up.

Customized smile makeovers are a series of dental treatments designed to improve the appearance and health of your teeth. Procedures like teeth whitening and veneers improve the look of your teeth, while crowns, fillings, and other restorative dental procedures can make your teeth stronger. 

Millennium Dental, Beatriz Parra, DDS, in Redwood City, California, offers the latest in general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry to give you a smile you’ll love. Talk to Dr. Parra about how a smile makeover could enhance your smile and how you view the world, as well as how the world views you.

A smile makeover fixes cosmetic and functional issues

Your smile uniquely reflects your personality. But if there’s something about the way your teeth look that bothers you, you might be hesitant to smile for photos and embrace life to the fullest.

Smile flaws can be embarrassing, but you shouldn’t have to miss out on the best moments of life because you’re ashamed of your teeth. You could be a good candidate for a smile makeover if you’re bothered by:

Whatever cosmetic or functional issues you have, Dr. Parra can develop a customized smile makeover that fits your needs. She takes your age, personality, and lifestyle into consideration when designing your new and improved smile.

What’s included in your smile makeover

At your smile makeover consultation, Dr. Parra performs a comprehensive oral exam and talks with you about your goals for your smile. She reviews your medical history and any dental issues you might have. She may take X-rays or complete other tests to learn more about your oral health.

With her evaluation and your goals in mind, Dr. Parra recommends dental procedures to address functional and cosmetic flaws. Common dental procedures that Dr. Parra may perform as part of your smile makeover include:

Dr. Parra’s expertise allows her to streamline your treatment, combining a number of procedures to transform your smile. Since every smile makeover is different, the time it takes to complete treatment varies as well.

Some procedures, like teeth whitening, can be done in just one office visit. Other treatments may take several visits, so talk to Dr. Parra about what to expect when you start your smile makeover journey.

A smile makeover goes beyond looks

While smile makeovers improve the aesthetic look of your teeth, they can be a good option if you have oral health concerns. Decay, infections, and missing teeth can put your oral health and your overall well-being at risk, but a smile makeover can give you a healthier mouth.

Crowded and crooked teeth can be difficult to clean around. Plaque can build up between your teeth, increasing your risk of developing cavities and gingivitis, or gum inflammation. If left untreated, these conditions can cause pain and tooth loss.

If you do have decay, composite fillings and dental crowns restore teeth damaged by decay and help stop it from spreading to other teeth. If you’re missing teeth, dental implants strengthen your jaw, fill gaps, and take strain off your remaining natural teeth.

You can have the smile you’ve always wanted. Get your personalized smile makeover plan from Millennium Dental, Beatriz Parra, DDS.
