Think About Getting A Smile Makeover

Dentist Blog

If you are worried about the way that your smile looks, there are things that you can do to try to get a better smile. One of the things you can do is to go see a dentist and talk to them about getting a smile makeover. The dentist can tell you what they think that they can do for you and all the various options you have to improve your smile. What is a smile makeover?

Smile Makeover

This process isn't just one thing, and it's going to be different for you than it would be for someone else. Even if you and the other person have some of the same concerns, the makeover process will be customized just to you. At the end of the process, when you've gone through all the procedures that your dentist suggests, you will have the smile that you have always wanted to have. 


The evaluation is going to be the first part of the process. The dentist will look at your dental health and talk to you about what your concerns are. Those concerns could include missing teeth, discolored teeth, damaged gums, and crooked teeth. Once the dentist has taken x-rays, checked out your teeth, cleaned them, and filled any cavities, they can tell you what they think that you should do. So, what are some things that the dentist might suggest that you use?


If you have problems with crooked teeth, your dentist may suggest that you get braces. They may suggest that you go with something like invisible aligner trays. If you don't want people to know that you are wearing braces, this can be a good option because you can wear them and no one will know that you are wearing them, unless you tell them. The aligner trays will also let you eat all the normal foods you would eat, which can be problematic if you are going to wear traditional braces. 


Another option your dentist might suggest is veneers. These are small slices of material that go over the front of your tooth. The veneers will cover up any damage or discoloration, and give you a nice, white, bright smile. 

If you don't like the way that your smile looks, schedule an appointment with your dentist to talk to them about a smile makeover. They can tell you what you can do so that you can get the smile that you have always wanted to have.

Getting Your Toddler to the Dentist Once and For All

Toddlers should see a dentist for the first time by the age of twelve months or by the time their first tooth comes in. But if you are a parent with toddlers anything like mine, the prospect of going to the dentist (let alone anywhere!) can be pretty intimidating. My kids were a handful growing up. They had tantrums any time we would have to sit in a waiting room, and they refused to get in the dentist's chair during their first few visits. So, I had to employ a professional to help me make the transition to finally getting them in that dental chair without all the screaming and crying. I know I'm not the only parent in this situation, so I decided to share the information I've learned with others who can use a little help. You can find all my advice right here on these pages!
