Should You Be Considering a Smile Makeover?

by | Feb 16, 2015 | Blog

A smile makeover is a big decision, just like any other type of makeover you could get! You don’t want to sign yourself up for a major change without first evaluating the entire situation.

Can you imagine agreeing to buy a new vehicle or home without first asking yourself basic questions like, “Do I need to do this?” “Can I afford this?” “Is it in my best interest to make this purchase?”

Ultimately, a smile makeover is an investment in your smile and your future confidence. We think many patients could benefit from this big decision, but we will never pressure you. Instead, we provide resources to help you make the best decision!

Evaluate What You Have, First!

The first step in making this decision is to evaluate what you have before you begin. This will help you do a few things. First, you can decide if you need a total smile makeover, or if you’d just like to take care of a few things.

Second, an evaluation helps you see all that’s available to you. You might have things about your smile that you’ve never paid attention to before. A smile evaluation will help you do that.

Now, we know what you might be thinking, how do I do a smile evaluation if I don’t even know where to begin? We have you covered with our free smile evaluation tool on the website. Just click HERE for more details to see the list and get started!

Consider the Benefits

Your next step is to consider the benefits of having the work done. You have probably already considered the difficult parts: payment and risk of pain or fear. (You should know that we have fantastic solutions for both by offering financial payment plans and sedation options for every patient.) Now, how about thinking of the benefits!

Some smile makeover solutions can really benefit the health of your smile! For example, straightening crooked teeth makes it easier to keep your teeth and gums clean, which lowers your risk of decay and infection!

Nothing will destroy your confidence faster than a broken smile that you really hate to show to other people! A smile makeover can turn your entire experience around! You’ll have a smile that you can’t wait to show off, which makes your day to day life much more enjoyable!

Decide on Treatment

The final task is to decide on treatment that will benefit your smile the most. This is a conversation you will have with us here at the office. We will evaluate the health of your teeth and decide what your teeth can handle. Then, we’ll get to work to improve your smile! Below are a few of our most commonly requested solutions!

Color: Who wouldn’t benefit from a brighter smile? Teeth whitening is a great way for you to change the color of your smile from something you hate to something you love! In rare cases, we might recommend Lumineers to patients whose teeth are discolored beyond what traditional whitening treatment can handle!

Shape: The shapes of your teeth have a big impact on the way your smile looks. Teeth that are too short, wide, narrow, or long can make you feel as if everyone is staring! We use a variety of methods to correct those issues from Lumineers to bonding to contouring.

Gums: Your gum placement can make a huge impact on the way your smile looks. A gummy smile might benefit from gum lifts while some smiles lack enough gums, in which case we would consider a gum graft.

Have the Smile of Your Dreams
Our ultimate goal is to send you out of the office with the smile of your dreams! There is so much we want to accomplish for you. All you have to do is give us a call to begin the process!

Contact us today to set up a consultation or appointment. You won’t be disappointed in your many options here at Smile Glen Ellyn! We can’t wait to see you soon!
