What Is a Smile Makeover?

December 16, 2013

Even with immaculate dental hygiene, you can still find yourself looking in the mirror at a lackluster smile. A variety of cosmetic issues may make you feel less than confident about the smile you are showing off to the world around you. Are you worried about small chips or cracks in your teeth? Do you feel embarrassed by discoloration or slightly crooked teeth? Have you felt like your teeth size or shape just doesn’t match your facial features? At Lake Orion Family Dentistry, cosmetic dentist Dr. Greenfield looks forward to guiding you toward achieving the dazzling smile of your dreams with a smile makeover plan.

Smile Makeovers from Your Family Dentist

When you have a particular cosmetic concern, such as discolored teeth, you may choose to make an appointment with your Lake Orion MI dentist for a single cosmetic treatment. However, when asked, many adults will point to more than one aesthetic imperfection keeping them from achieving their most beautiful smile. If you can relate, a smile makeover offers the dramatic transformation you are looking for through a personalized cosmetic treatment plan. Dr. Greenfield will narrow down your goals to determine services that will guide you toward your new smile most efficiently.

Fast Improvements 

A smile makeover allows you to tackle one or more goals to improve the beauty of your smile with quick results. At Lake Orion Family Dentistry, we offer the following options so that you can achieve a brighter, more youthful smile that exceeds your expectations:

  • Cosmetic Bonding: Bonding is an additive process, during which Dr. Greenfield will carefully apply composite directly to your tooth. We can adjust the shade of the composite, the same material used for tooth-colored fillings, according to your preferences. Bonding fills in small gaps, correct small chips and cracks, offers an alternative method of teeth whitening for individuals with bleach-resistant or sensitive teeth, and can improve teeth length.
  • Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are extremely thin, translucent ceramic shells bonded to your teeth. They offer a natural finish and camouflage a wide variety of imperfections, including chips, discoloration, tooth shape and size, misalignment, and spaces.
  • Teeth Whitening: As part of a smile makeover, Dr. Greenfield may suggest Zoom! Whitening. This in-office teeth-whitening treatment can whiten your teeth up to eight shades within less than an hour.

 The Benefits of a More Beautiful Smile

The way you feel about yourself can have a significant impact on your daily life. When you are embarrassed to smile, you may find yourself avoiding otherwise enjoyable experiences, including socializing with friends and loved ones, or going out on a date. A beautiful smile may also give you the confidence to go for a promotion or career opportunity you may otherwise have chosen to avoid. Allow Dr. Greenfield to provide you with the smile makeover that can improve your self-image for the smile – and life – you want and deserve today.
