A Smile Makeover Can Improve Your Self-Esteem

Smile Makeover Carpinteria, CA

A smile makeover often leads to increased self-esteem and confidence. Having a radiant, healthy smile also gives you increased success during professional and personal interactions. People with great smiles are often perceived as attractive and successful, while those with unsightly smiles are sometimes viewed as unclean and unsuccessful. A smile makeover is a combination of treatments that are used to fix cosmetic problems with a patient's smile.

How a smile makeover improves confidence

A person who is unhappy with the appearance of their smile might end up avoiding social interactions due to them being self-conscious about the way their smile looks. This can lead to them missing out on career-oriented and personal interactions.

Being unhappy with the appearance of your smile can also lead to others making assumptions about you. People who are self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth tend to simply stop smiling. Others can view that as being unfriendly or impolite. People who are unhappy with the appearance of their smiles tend to do things like covering up their smiles when laughing in public, avoiding smiling when taking pictures, constantly worrying about what everyone thinks about their smile, and even being hesitant to date due to the appearance of their teeth.

According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, about 99.7% of people surveyed in a poll feel that having a good smile is an important social attribute. Only half of the people polled said they were happy with the way their smile currently looks.

Thanks to cosmetic dentistry, no one has to be unhappy about the appearance of their teeth. Smile makeover treatments allow patients and their dentists to create the smile of their dreams. Each smile makeover is customized to ensure it addresses all of the issues the patient is dealing with.

People who undergo smile makeovers notice a confidence boost as their enhanced smile becomes an asset instead of something that hinders them.

Treatments a cosmetic dentist might use to improve the way a patient's smile looks include:

  • Composite bonding: This involves using a composite resin to alter a tooth's appearance. It can be used to fix dental issues like stains, chipped teeth, spaces between teeth and broken teeth
  • Dental veneers: These thin shells go over the front part of teeth and they cover up all the flaws behind them. Veneers are the reason many celebrities have amazing smiles
  • Teeth whitening: Teeth whitening treatments performed by a dentist are significantly more effective than over-the-counter products sold in grocery and drug stores. Multiple treatments might be needed to reach the desired shade of white
  • Dental implants: Implants are highly recommended by dentists as a tooth replacement option. These oral restorations replace the lost tooth and its root
