Let’s talk about your smile and the act of smiling. Smiling is something we have hopefully all done and continue to do multiple times on a daily basis. First of all, why is it important? Secondly, why would you want to change your smile?
Smiling is important because it reduces the levels of stress-induced hormones that have a negative impact on both our physical as well as mental well being. Smiling also helps to generate more positive emotions within you. Children on average, smile about 400 times a day which is why we are generally happier in their presence. Happy adults smile about 40-50 times a day, while the average of us only smiles about 20 times a day. By smiling more, we can improve both our mental as well as physical health. You might ask “What if I don’t like the way my smile looks?” which leads us to our second question.
As we read above, this can have a negative impact on your mood as well as your state of mind and physical well being. If you are unhappy with your smile, we may be able make changes ranging from subtle to fabulous, depending on what you are looking for to give you that smile that you will want to show off to light up that room! We do this through what is known as a Smile Makeover. The term Smile Makeover is very broad and really has no single definition. It is a very unique and personal preference which is not limited to any one or even two procedures. This is why at Credit River Dental, we say “No Two Smiles Are Alike”!
At Credit River Dental Centre we offer a number of services to create the Smile Makeover that can make your dream smile a reality. You can contact us at 905-278-4297 to set up your free smile consultation.
A Smile Makeover can address any or all of the following concerns that you may have:
- Spaces or gaps between your teeth
- Alignment including crooked or overlapping teeth
- Missing teeth
- Stained or discoloured teeth
- Damaged teeth including chips, cracks or fractures
- Teeth that are short or have been worn down
- Old un-aesthetic restorations such as silver fillings
- Gummy smile
Smile Makeovers are as unique as each individual and it is possible that you may be experiencing one or any number of these conditions. There are many options available to correct these concerns and accentuate your smile all the while making sure your new smile is in harmony with your facial features.
Procedures that we use to personalize your Smile Makeover may include one or more of the following:
- Porcelain veneers
- Dental Bonding
- Dental Implants
- Porcelain Crowns or Bridges
- Gum re-contouring
- Tooth jewels
Starting Your Smile Makeover Process
If you have concerns about your smile, we would be more than happy to have a look to discuss some of these issues, determine what your cosmetic goals are and to see if you are a candidate for any of the Smile Makeover procedures. The first step after the consultation would be a comprehensive dental examination to uncover any underlying problems if there are any. Before we address the cosmetic concerns, we must ensure that your dental and oral health is free of disease and functioning properly. Once we determine your teeth, your gums and your bite are in shape and will provide a stable foundation for our beautifying work, then we can move onto addressing the cosmetic concerns of improving your smile.
We will determine the options that are the best for you and your smile and then discuss in further detail how we will go about achieving the smile the of your dreams.
