Smile Makeover - Creating a Beautiful Smile

smile-makeoverDoes this sound familiar? You see a photograph of yourself and you really like it, but when you take a closer look at your smile, you cringe. You don’t like the way your teeth appear, and you remind yourself to keep your lips together in future photos. Maybe you don’t even look at photos because you already know how you dislike the way your smile appears, and this has led you to smile less and even cover your smile in a self-conscious manner. Perhaps it is not a cosmetic issue leaving you unhappy with your smile, and instead it is that you know that your mouth is not as healthy as it might be. If any of these scenarios sound familiar, there are some remarkable solutions available now, and all of them can be found in a “smile makeover”.

Feel Good about your Smile

There is no need to live with such a constant sense of dissatisfaction with your teeth or smile when a smile makeover is possible. Dr. Daniel Burton, D.D.S. and his team offer a long list of cosmetic and restorative dental procedures in their Grand Rapids, MI office, and these can be combined to give you a complete smile makeover. It can all begin with a call for a consultation. At that time, Dr. Burton will be sure you have a complete oral exam because the health of your smile is a major priority. Then, you will be able to enjoy the use of the SNAP Instant Dental Imaging system that can quickly create a “before and after” image of your teeth and gums.

This allows Dr. Burton to do a point-by-point evaluation of the issues that bother you or which make your smile less healthy. Then, he can show you the many cutting edge technologies that he can use to repair, restore, or improve the issue. Some of the most common steps taken in a smile makeover include cosmetic procedures like ZOOM! teeth whitening, bonding, porcelain veneers, and the use of Clear Correct aligners (known as clear braces). He also does full reconstructions as part of a smile makeover, and that might mean the use of inlays or onlays, dental implants, porcelain crowns, and dentures or bridges.

Improve your Smile and Restore your Confidence

If you have dental implants, the required “osseointegration” process may take several months. However, there are also some steps that are nearly instantaneous, like whitening or veneers, and it is best to speak with the doctor about your goals in order to discover your customized timeline. It is a simple fact that a healthy and beautiful smile makes you feel healthy and beautiful. Dentistry is meant to give you total dental health, but it can now be combined with remarkable technologies to give you a gorgeous grin in addition to one that will endure and function properly for many decades.

Now is the time to consider your smile and to book a consultation with Dr. Burton to discuss your needs. His mission is to give patients the most information possible and allow them to make fully informed decisions. He’ll work with you to create a customized plan for your smile makeovers and then guide you through the steps to your ideal smile.
