What is a makeover? Merriam-Webster defines it as the process of making changes to improve the appearance or effectiveness of something.
Television series have been created in which the hosts make cosmetic improvements to homes and to individuals. One thing is clear, makeovers have aesthetic benefits, but they also affect us emotionally.
When we feel better about our house or our clothing, we feel better about ourselves.
Why should a dentist office care about this? Well, we offer makeovers for our patients’ smiles.
If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist in the Dallas area, look no further than the office of Dr. Fred Thompson, D.D.S. in Richardson, TX.
Reasons To Get A Makeover
Cosmetic dentistry provides anyone with a way to improve the appearance of his or her smile.
What does this mean? That will vary from person to person.
Some people want to fix crooked teeth. Some people want their teeth to be whiter, and other people want to fill in gaps in their smiles.
In addition to the visual improvement to your smile, cosmetic dentistry can be uplifting as well. We’ve seen it for ourselves many times in our office.
Some patients are so embarrassed by their smile that they seem ashamed to open their mouths. They hang their heads. They speak softly. In general, they seem to lack confidence in themselves.
This makes us sad. We want all our patients to be comfortable with themselves. We don’t judge you. We only want to help. If there is something that you would like to change about your smile, please talk to us. More than likely, we have a service that can help make that happen.
You may be surprised how seeing your new smile can boost your self-esteem.
How To Makeover Your Smile
As we mentioned earlier, no two patients are the same. One person may be comfortable with the gap between his front teeth while another patient may feel self-conscious about the same kind of space in her smile.
Is there something that you would like to change? What would you change if you could?
Here are some our services that may be able to help:
◼︎ Gum Reshaping
You have probably noticed other people noticing your gummy smile. This occurs when your grin reveals as much or more gum tissue than teeth.
We can change this with gum reshaping. In this procedure, we remove gum tissue either to change the resting position of your lips or to expose more of your teeth.
◼︎ Teeth Whitening
As we get older, it’s normal and natural for our teeth to become stained. Your teeth may become yellower or darker. Coffee, tea, and soft drinks are among the common culprits that cause the stains in our teeth. Tobacco use can cause those stains to appear even faster.
In any case, our professional teeth whitening is an effective way to remove stains that have accumulated over years or decades.
◼︎ Dental Crowns
Dental crowns may be considered a restorative technique, but they also can serve a cosmetic purpose. If you have a chipped or broken tooth, that can affect the appearance of your smile. A dental crown can restore that tooth to its original appearance.
If a tooth is injured, it can change color. A single tooth that is darker than the teeth around it can be a distraction. A dental crown can revert the tooth to its original color.
◼︎ Dental Implants
Again, implants are a restorative treatment, but they can be used to revive the appearance of your smile. If you are missing a single tooth or several teeth, dental implants can serve as a foundation to give you a complete smile once again.
We can attach a dental crown, a dental bridge, or dentures to your dental implants. Any of those things can be used to restore the appearance of a full set of teeth, and that can do wonders for your smile.
We have seen many patients shine when they see their new smiles for the first time. Patients who seemed shy started to open up to us, and we hope to others in their lives.
