With the end of the pandemic hopefully in sight thanks to vaccination availability, lots of people are going to be glad of the opportunity to restart their flagging careers this year. Since working from home changed the way we do things and got us all onto Zoom for meetings, it’s even more important to feel confident in your appearance on camera. A well-groomed, healthy smile goes a long way towards advancing your personal image, and a smile makeover can get you ready to boost your career both online and in person. Here are some ways you can achieve this.
No matter how perfect your teeth are (or not!) they can always benefit from a professional teeth cleaning and whitening procedure. Eating, drinking, medications and other actions can cause your teeth to turn yellow over time. Start your smile makeover with a chairside whitening, which uses a bleaching process. By eliminating stains, this procedure can leave your teeth up to six times whiter than before. Our dentists might also recommend a laser teeth whitening or abrasion and polishing to remove deeper stains, or set you up to do a few follow-up sessions of in-home bleaching to enhance the whitening.
There’s no longer any need to spend your life walking around with crooked teeth. Most adults can get convenient orthodontic treatment that rivals the results of traditional care. Invisalign clear retainers are the perfect way to straighten that one wayward tooth gently, close up the gap between your two front teeth, or minimise that rabbity look you’ve always hated. They’re practically invisible, so you’ll look normal while you’re going through your smile makeover, and when it’s done and your teeth are perfectly even nobody even needs to know you ever had an issue. Research shows Invisalign works very well for adult orthodontics patients.
Nobody can look or speak their best with missing teeth. Even if that one tooth you lost wasn’t visible to others, the gap it leaves can cause endless problems. Your other teeth shift to make use of the extra space, your bite might become over-closed because the mouth isn’t properly supported, and you’ll discover wrinkles you never had before as the face muscles start to droop. Dental implants are the best replacement option for anyone who has just a couple of missing teeth and needs a smile makeover. They look and function just like natural teeth, and if you only need one or two the cost is probably worth it. Your improved confidence and ability to speak after an implant will more than make up for the inconvenience and the minimal pain involved.
Bonding and Veneers
Treatments like dental bonding and veneers are most often used to fix cavities or broken teeth. You can also use these options to improve the look of your healthy teeth and be a big part of a smile makeover, however. Veneers are applied to the whole front-facing surface of the tooth, whereas bonding is applied to a smaller portion of the tooth. Bonding is a painless way to do minor adjustments and repairs, such as building up a section of a broken tooth to its original size and shape. Dental veneers are shaped to match your other teeth and can change the look of your mouth completely, depending on how many you choose to get.
