5 Reasons How A Smile Makeover Can Improve Your Life


The term “smile makeover” includes a variety of dental procedures. It refers to clinical and cosmetic procedures performed by a cosmetic dentist as part of a coordinated plan to improve both a patient’s oral health and the appearance of their teeth and gums. Some of the procedures that can be part of a smile makeover include:

  • Crowns
  • Tooth replacement through implants, partial dentures or bridges
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Gum reshaping
  • Teeth whitening
  • Tooth bonding or reshaping to correct minor imperfections
  • Orthodontics or Invisalign® braces to improve alignment

One of the greatest benefits of a smile makeover is that whether your primary motivation is a healthier mouth or a better-looking smile, you get both!

How A Smile Makeover Can Improve Your Life

  1. Your oral health will improve. Cosmetic procedures take place after a patient’s pressing dental issues are resolved.
  2. Your ability to chew and speak may be enhanced. Procedures to improve alignment or chewing surfaces of the teeth can make daily activities easier.
  3. You will make a more positive first impression. Many of these treatments improve the symmetry and aesthetic appeal of your smile. This can influence the way you are perceived when meeting someone new.
  4. You may feel more comfortable in social settings. Many patients with tooth imperfections feel self-conscious when they laugh, talk to others, or pose for pictures. A smile makeover can ease these fears.
  5. Your confidence may soar. Having a smile you’re now proud of can encourage you to take on new challenges in your personal or professional life.

“Providing smile makeovers to our clients is rewarding because we see how it enhances their lives, often in ways they didn’t expect,” says Dr. Carol Ford, a cosmetic dentist practicing in central Phoenix and the founder of Dr. Carol Ford & Associates.
