What is a smile makeover?

Dr. Lori Ross Tijerino of Sycamore Family Dentistry in Livermore, California, describes the cosmetic smile makeover as a combination of aesthetic dentistry services to achieve full smile restoration. This includes the use of cosmetic dentistry solutions such as the following.

  • Dental implants – Dental implants are best used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. They are sturdy and long-lasting, making them an ideal solution for those who want to improve their smile. Most patients will enjoy tooth replacement with a dental implant for a lifetime with proper care!
  • Porcelain veneers – Veneers are described by our team as thin shells of porcelain bonded to the front of the teeth to improve their overall look. They can address issues such as discoloration, chips, and gaps in the teeth.
  • Teeth whitening – This popular cosmetic dentistry procedure uses bleaching agents to lighten and remove the stains from the teeth right here in our office using professional-strength products. Our teeth whitening treatments provide faster, more noticeable results than any over-the-counter kits.
  • Orthodontics – Clear aligner therapies such as Invisalign are often used to straighten misaligned teeth, improving the smile’s appearance and function. Invisalign trays are clear, so they can be worn to align the teeth without the embarrassment of metal brackets and wires.
  • Dental crowns – Crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed by a dentist over damaged or discolored teeth to improve both appearance and strength. They can be made from various materials, including porcelain and metal, or a combination of both.

What are the benefits of a smile makeover?

Cosmetic smile makeovers are not just about improving the aesthetics of the smile but also enhancing its function. Specific cosmetic dentistry procedures can also have functional benefits. For example, dental implants not only fill in the noticeable gap left by a missing tooth but also provide support for surrounding teeth and help prevent bone loss in the jaw.

Additionally, a cosmetic smile makeover can significantly improve self-confidence and self-esteem. A healthy, beautiful smile can make an individual feel more attractive and confident in social situations. It can also have positive effects on personal and professional relationships.
