Very shortly, many of us will make New Year’s resolutions as it is the ideal time to make a brand new start. A lot of those new promises will center on diet and exercise and generally trying to improve appearance, but what about a new smile? Age and lifestyle habits can all take their toll on the appearance of your teeth, but there is always a solution to help restore your smile to its former glory. It can actually be a really good time to plan ahead, especially if you intend to make quite a few changes.
Get Started with a Smile Makeover
So how do you go about planning a smile makeover? The first thing to do is to take an objective look at the appearance of your teeth. Decide which aspects you like, and what you’d love to change. Perhaps think about collecting a few photos of smiles that appeal, or find some old photos of your own smile.
Book a Consultation at the Cosmetic Dentistry Center Brooklyn, NYC
The next step is to book a consultation with one of our experienced cosmetic dentists at the Cosmetic Dentistry Center Brooklyn, NYC. Communication is extremely important in helping you achieve your dream smile, so we will listen carefully to everything you have to say and will use this information to custom-design your new smile. We’ll then provide you with a treatment plan at the Cosmetic Dentistry Center Brooklyn, NYC that details all the options for your smile makeover, including the time needed to complete it, and of course the costs.
We explain all the treatments using easy-to-understand language, so we won’t baffle you with lots of unfamiliar words. If there is something you are not clear on, please ask us to explain it again as it is not a problem.
Choose the Conservative Treatment
Some people might be worried if we suggest more than one treatment, imagining that this will make the overall cost more expensive. In fact this is not necessarily the case. At the Cosmetic Dentistry Center Brooklyn, NYC we always suggest the most conservative treatment we can, that preserves the maximum amount of your healthy tooth structure. Using several less invasive procedures can often achieve very good results more cheaply than using just one procedure to change the look of your smile. A good example would be dental veneers, as it is easy to think it might be necessary to veneer all the teeth visible when smiling. A more conservative solution would be to simply veneer those teeth that were perhaps chipped or cracked, while improving the shade of the rest of your teeth with a simple, safe and inexpensive professional teeth whitening treatment.
An Alternative to Dental Veneers
An alternative to using veneers would be to bond one or two teeth using tooth colored composite resin. Teeth can also be slightly reshaped, without making any major changes to the structure of the tooth. This could be an option if one or two teeth are overlapping. Your dentist at the Cosmetic Dentistry Center Brooklyn, NYC can use a special type of abrasive to gently shave away a tiny amount of tooth enamel so the teeth no longer overlap. This does not do any harm and can make a surprising amount of difference.
Of course, at the Cosmetic Dentistry Center Brooklyn, NYC we can also carry out more complex smile makeovers if required, and options might include adult orthodontics to gently and discreetly straighten teeth, and the very latest dental implants to securely replace lost teeth.
