Smiles are universally known, but there are some cultures in the world where smiles are less freely given. In our culture, when someone refuses to smile, we usually assume that they are unfriendly, sad, or unpleasant. The truth is there are people who have been dealt an unfair hand in the smile department, and may prefer to come across as aloof if it allows them to hide the way their teeth look. There is a way to deal with tooth issues that range from restorative to cosmetic. Dr. Brent Engelberg, your Wilmette cosmetic dentist, will talk about balancing imperfections with a smile makeover.
What is a Smile Makeover?
Smile makeovers are an ideal solution for people that feel overwhelmed with all of the dental work they need. Whether time or finances are the concern, sometimes it’s just taking that first step to find out exactly what you are up against. If you have misalignment, overlaps, gaps, or crooked teeth, but also have decay and gum disease, a combination of procedures might be necessary. Root canal procedures, fillings, and crowns could be necessary before something like veneers, bonding, or teeth whitening will be tolerable to your body. Smile makeovers are tailor-made plans designed by your dentist with your individual needs in mind. No two smile makeovers will be exactly the same.
Smile Makeover Procedures
When you visit Dr. Engelberg for an initial smile makeover consultation, you will find comfort in his warm sense of humor and openness to all of your questions. Your unique dental needs will be discussed in great detail. The first order of business will be laying a strong foundation by restoring your teeth to their proper functioning by treating tooth decay and gum disease. Once you are healed and ready, the cosmetic imperfections of your teeth and gums can be addressed through procedures such as dental bonding, porcelain veneers, crowns, teeth whitening, or gum recontouring.
