I am seriously considering getting a smile makeover. The thing is, it will cost most of my savings and I want to make sure it’s what I want. Is there a way to know ahead of time exactly what it will look like?
It’s great that you are being careful before investing in a smile makeover. Too many people just move forward without knowing anything about the skills of the dentist.
Smile makeovers aren’t taught in dental school. A dentist has to take the time to learn and practice post doctoral training. Look at their smile gallery to see if they get beautiful results. If they don’t, move on.
Next, you watn to make sure they’re willing to stand behind their work. Great cosmetic dentists will offer a beautiful smile guarantee. Usually that means the porcelain veneers don’t get bonded on until you are completely thrilled with the results.
Dr. Dennis goes one step further and lets you see what it will look like before it is even created.
Digital Smile Makeover Analysis
She offers a free digital smile makeover analysis. This means with a photo of you smiling, the two of you can sit down and design your smile together using a photoshop type of software program. You get to see exactly what you’d look like before deciding to invest.
Smile Makeovers Don’t Have to Cost a Fortune
The most cost effective way to do this is with a simple teeth whitening procedure. It’s affordable and makes a dramatic difference in making you look years younger.
If you have crooked teeth, it doesn’t have to mean years of metal wires and brackets on your teeth with braces. Instead, you can get Invisalign. This uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth.
There’s a bonus with Invisalign. The aligners can double as teeth whitening trays, essentially giving you a two for the price of one type of mini smile makeover.
