Your smile is an important part of your appearance, and if it’s one you feel self-conscious about, it can have a negative impact on your self-confidence. You may even avoid smiling in an effort to hide your issues. If this sounds like you, a smile makeover can help you regain your confidence and be proud to flash your smile.

In this blog, a Cosmetic Dentist Dr. Saj Jivraj at Anacapa Dental Art Institute, Oxnard explain who makes a good candidate for a smile makeover.

What Is A Smile Makeover?

It’s a multi-step cosmetic treatment plan to improve the appearance of your smile. It’s custom-designed for each patient to help them achieve their goals, and the results can be a dramatic improvement.

The Smile Makeover is a fantastic way to reconstruct your teeth and mouth in order to restore it back to health and beauty. While Porcelain Veneers, Teeth Whitening and other less invasive procedures are usually used in this procedure, some cases are in need of multiple restorative as well as Cosmetic Dental Treatments. The bottom line is your Smile Makeover includes anything necessary to give you bright, beautiful and healthy teeth.

Who Should Get a Smile Makeover?

Most of the time, a smile makeover is a good choice for those patients who need to have more than one procedure to help improve the look of their smile. Those who want more than just a restorative treatment, but who also want the aesthetics improved can be a good candidate for a smile makeover.

For example, those who are missing some teeth and who also want to brighten their smile with whitening could be good candidates.

If you feel that this might apply to you, you will want to get in touch with a smile makeover specialist Dr. Jivraj, who can help you determine what treatments might be right for you. This could be any range of cosmetic procedures, and we can let you know more about the various options available. If you only need to have a single type of treatment though, you will not need to have a full smile makeover.

Who Is A Candidate for a Smile Makeover?

You could be a good candidate if you have good dental health overall and don’t need any restorative procedures such as crowns, bridges, or implants.

The following concerns can also make you a good candidate:

  • Teeth staining or discoloration
  • Chips or cracks in one or more teeth
  • Minor tooth misalignment
  • Missing Teeth,
  • Worn Teeth,
  • Broken Tooth,
  • Crowded Teeth &
  • Gapped Between Teeth.
