It’s summertime, and you’re ready to head out on vacation. Whether traveling with family or friends, you want this to be a time full of fun and great memories, but what about your smile? For months, you’ve complained of the troublesome stains and chips that continue to cause embarrassment. Before you load up the car and start driving, find out how a smile makeover can help you get ready for the best summer yet.

What is a Smile Makeover?

A smile makeover is a completely personalized treatment plan that combines two or more cosmetic services.

Designed for individuals who have multiple imperfections that cannot be addressed with just one method of treatment, it is a worthwhile investment that can produce beautiful results that last for years or even decades.

What Kind of Treatments Are Available?

When it comes to pursuing a smile makeover, there are many treatment options available that your cosmetic dentist will likely choose from, such as:

  • Porcelain veneers – Thin sheath coverings of porcelain conceal imperfections on the front surfaces of teeth and can last a decade or longer with proper care.
  • Teeth whitening – Using in-office or take-home kits, teeth whitening helps to brighten smiles by several shades, eliminating even the most stubborn stains.
  • Metal-free restorations – Decay and damaged teeth can be restored with the help of metal-free crowns, fillings, inlays, and onlays. Custom-made by lab technicians, they offer protection and beautiful aesthetics.
  • Direct bonding – Minor flaws can be easily hidden with the help of color-matched composite resin. Applied directly to tooth enamel, it is shaped and sculpted into place for an enhanced appearance.
  • Invisalign – Using clear aligners to straighten teeth, Invisalign can produce results much quicker than traditional braces and allows for a more subtle and flexible form of orthodontic treatment.
  • Six Month Smiles – With clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, Six Month Smiles focus only on visible teeth, allowing for a change in appearance that can occur in just six months.

Why Are Smile Makeovers Beneficial?

The reason so many people turn to smile makeovers when considering cosmetic treatment is that they offer a more streamlined approach to dental care. Instead of driving back and forth to your dentist’s office to pursue yet another form of treatment, your dentist can craft a plan that allows for greater efficiency.

Many treatments can be performed on the same day, and multiple services can be provided in just one visit.

By opting for this comprehensive treatment option, you can prepare to show off your smile with greater confidence this summer as you prepare to hit the beach.
