5 Benefits of a Smile Makeover

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as the old saying goes, and that’s especially true when it comes to your smile. If you don’t like what you see when you smile in the mirror or feel embarrassed to smile and expose your teeth, you’re not alone. 

poll of over 2,000 American adults found that three in five people said they hate how their smile looks in pictures. Statistics show that your smile is the first thing that people notice about you. From stains and discolorations to chips and gaps, teeth make a first and lasting impression.

If your smile could use an upgrade, we can help. At Arden Dental Group, our dentists offer general and cosmetic dentistry and custom smile makeover services in the Asheville, North Carolina, area. 

How a smile makeover can benefit you

Here are just five of the benefits you can expect when you invest in a smile makeover:

Look and feel more confident

Even minor and subtle improvements can have a major impact on your confidence and self esteem. 

With a smile makeover, you can choose to fix cosmetic imperfections like chips and cracks, fill gaps between your teeth, or change the size, color, and shape of your teeth altogether for a completely new smile.

Improve your nutrition

Missing or deformed teeth can make it harder to chew and enjoy the foods you love. Smile makeovers are also about improving your oral and general health. If you’re missing one or more teeth, we offer several options including denturescrowns and bridgework, and dental implants.

Lower your risk of gum disease and other oral health problems

When the shape and spacing of your teeth make it difficult to brush and floss properly, you’re at a higher risk for developing gum disease. If it’s been more than six months since your last dental exam and teeth cleaning, schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

Improve your professional prospects

For better or worse, we live in an image-obsessed society. Bad teeth can sabotage your career and professional prospects, regardless of your skill, education, and accomplishments. Many people invest in a smile makeover purely for professional reasons, which ultimately yields a return on your investment.

Look younger

Most anti-aging treatments focus on skin problems like fine lines and wrinkles, but sometimes all you need to shave a few years off is a whiter smile. As you age, the enamel layer that protects your teeth gets thinner, making your teeth more vulnerable to stains. 

If you’re not sure where to get started with your smile makeover or would like to keep it simple, a professional teeth whitening treatment is a good place to start.

What’s included in a smile makeover

Smile makeovers are designed to address your specific needs. It could consist of two or more cosmetic procedures like a professional teeth whitening treatment and veneers or crowns. 

If you have underlying oral health issues like tooth decay or gum disease, they usually take priority over cosmetic treatments, so your smile makeover may include fillings and other restorative dentistry treatments as needed. 

We perform a comprehensive dental exam and consultation to determine the best and most effective dental treatments for your custom smile makeover.
