WHAT IS A SMILE MAKEOVER?

A smile makeover is a series of comprehensive treatments aimed at improving both the appearance and function of your pearly whites. The process begins with a consultation with your cosmetic dentist, who will take impressions and pictures to look at your smile. Then they will devise a customized treatment plan to help you achieve the smile you want and deserve. A smile makeover takes a lot of factors into consideration, such as your skin tone, face shape, oral health, personal preferences, and smile goals.

HOW CAN A SMILE MAKEOVER CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

Although it might sound like just a cosmetic treatment, getting a smile makeover can improve more than just the way your teeth look. Here are just a few of the benefits of getting your smile revamped by your cosmetic dentist:

MAKE YOU LOOK YOUNGER

As you get older, your teeth naturally become more yellow. As a result, we tend to read white teeth as a sign of youth. In addition, if you have wrinkles on your face, having a perfect smile will detract from them, instead bringing the focus on your newly beautified smile.

FEEL MORE CONFIDENT AND HAPPIER

No longer will you be in the habit of hiding your smile behind your lips or hand. You’ll have a set of pearly whites that you can’t wait to show off. Because of this, you’ll naturally smile more. Research has shown that people who smile a lot are generally happier because smiling releases feel-good hormones in the brain, like serotonin and dopamine. By improving the appearance of your smile, your general mood will also improve.

As you can see, a smile makeover can easily change your life, but just your appearance. If you feel like your smile leaves something to be desired, ask your dentist about a smile makeover in Tulsa today.
