A Different Kind of Makeover – For your Smile

Smiley GirlYou can go to any mall in America and sit down at a department store counter for a “makeover.” What does this mean, exactly? Generally, it involves a make-up expert introducing you to all of the lotions, creams, foundations, powders, eyeliners, mascaras, and lipsticks that are designed to enhance your natural beauty as much as possible. The cosmetics company’s goals are to sell you products, of course. With a smile makeover, you are more in control. Farmington Hills dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari, has made over a great many smiles, and no case is exactly the same.

Order What you Want

You may be missing teeth, or have wide gaps that you’re uncomfortable with. Perhaps deep discoloration is your smile plight. Even if your teeth won’t respond to whitening (a common finish on many smile makeovers) porcelain veneers offer a very versatile treatment that can cover over any number of cosmetic flaws. If your issues are more minor, however, a little dental bonding might suffice, or perhaps just a tooth-colored crown or two. Think of a smile makeover as ordering off of an a la carte menu. You can choose the exact combination that you want to “order.”

Attaining a Strong Foundation

Some people have many metal fillings, perhaps because their parents couldn’t afford more when they were younger, or simply because that’s what was available at the time they had a deluge of tooth decay. Mercury concerns from amalgam fillings is not something you should necessarily lose sleep over, but the option does exist to replace metal restorations with tooth-colored versions for a more aesthetically appealing look. Don’t forget, no cosmetic procedure will be viable if your teeth and gums are riddled with infection. Initial treatment for tooth decay or gum disease may be necessary before you can embark upon the physical based elements of a smile makeover.
