You are no doubt familiar with the concept of a makeover, but what about a makeover of your smile? This means much more than just a change in your hair or the shade of lipstick that you use; rather, it involves your dentist in Orlando, FL permanently altering your smile through the use of dental implants, veneers, composite bonding, and teeth whitening. Given the importance of a happy, healthy smile to your appearance, your confidence, and your overall well-being, this could be a chance to alter your life for the better. Yet as is the case with any cosmetic procedure, it is important that you first understand the pros and cons of a smile makeover before pursuing one.

Reclaim Your Youthful Appearance

Why would you choose to have a smile makeover? Simple: for all of confidence and life it can breathe back into your life. The aesthetic benefits that it provides can help you to both look and feel younger. Here is how:

  • Longer teeth: As you age, natural wear and tear causes your teeth to shorten. Through the use of bonding or porcelain veneers, Dr. Duffy can lengthen your front teeth, giving you a more youthful appearance.
  • Proportionate teeth: Most assume your two front teeth to be dominant in order for your smile to be balanced. Through a smile makeover, your teeth can be repositioned and/or enhanced in order to appear will proportionate to each other.
  • Aligned teeth: Gaps in your teeth can produce a smile that appears to be full of holes. Orthodontia and other treatments can make your dental bridges appear more mature.

Evaluating the Perceived Risks

Some who have received a smile makeover have complained about their dental bridge appearing uneven in places. However, these cases are more based upon a perception rather than poor work by their dental providers. There are also some who believe that extensive work on your teeth can make you more susceptible to developing gum disease. A strong dental regiment, however, may help counter this risk.

If you determine that a smile makeover is indeed for you, and you qualify for the component procedures, Dr. Duffy and the rest of our staff at the Center for Dental Anesthesia are here to help. We can get you back to flashing a beautiful smile to the world in no time at all. To schedule an appointment for a consultation, call us today at 407.930.1570.
