Do you have cracks, chips, stains, discoloration, or other flaws in your smile? Many people feel self-conscious about the way their teeth look, and it causes them to hide their smile in their social and professional lives. Thankfully, modern dentistry has made it possible to achieve a perfect looking grin through a smile makeover. Before investing in a set of brand-new pearly whites, there’s some factors you should consider. Read on to learn about these factors and why you should get evaluated before receiving a smile makeover in Montgomeryville.
The Health of Your Teeth
Before receiving any treatments like veneers, crowns, or even whitening, you should have your teeth evaluated for decay. Dental X-Rays and an exam give your dentist an opportunity to see how much healthy teeth you still have left, and they can recommend the correct treatments for your specific smile. Additionally, receiving whitening with cavities can be painful, so it’s important you get your teeth checked out before undergoing any beautifying services.
Your bite and how your teeth come together can play a big role in how long your new smile lasts. Some bites can be more difficult than others to restore (deep bites and edge to edge bites), so getting your bite checked out before receiving a makeover is important.
If your dentist notices that your teeth are worn, they will know that teeth grinding is a main cause of the damage to your smile. And, more importantly, they’ll know that that same grinding can have an affect on your new set of pearly whites.
Your dentist may recommend braces or Invisalign to adjust your teeth for a healthier bite that will result in a longer lasting restoration.
The Color of Your Teeth
Before receiving a smile makeover, your dentist may decide you should whiten your teeth. This way, you can see the exact shade of whiteness you’ll want, and your dentist will be able to match the restorative treatments to that exact color. Additionally, whitening can sometimes reduce the amount of work that has to be done during the smile makeover.
The Health of Your Gums
Although your teeth get most of the attention in a smile makeover, your gums are just as important for the health of your smile. The gums provide a stable support for your teeth, but gum disease can cause your teeth to loosen or even get lost. Your gums must be stable in order to receive the proper makeover that you need, so your dentist will have to take care of your gums before they can get to your smile.
Your cosmetic dentist in Montgomeryville will ensure you get the best makeover possible by taking a careful look at your teeth and gums before anything else is done. Now, you can receive a beautiful new smile, knowing that it will last and stay healthy.
