See What a Smile Makeover Can Do for You
Dr. B: Smile makeovers are kind of interesting in that they can be minor or they can be major, and they can be on the young, they can be on the old. Basically, what you do with a smile makeover is find out what it is that the patient dislikes when they see themselves in a photograph or in the mirror. It can be anything from one tooth being rotated, it can be a dark tooth, anything that they just don’t like. Now, if somebody were to come to me and say, ‟Hey. You tell me what’s gonna be the best, I’ve got a whole list of things that balance people’s facial features, change the way they speak, change the way they look. We can just about change anything that you want, but the idea is to change only what the patient wants. If you think about yourself in a way that is uncomfortable … or let me say this: If you’re self-conscious, you’re probably not gonna be the person that you could be to the public. You’re gonna shield yourself. There could be walls up. If you can change somebody’s smile so that they don’t worry about it anymore, or even better yet, they’re proud of it, you’re gonna see a more vibrant person, a more outgoing person, and someone that’s confident. So, that’s how I feel about it, is it’s smile makeovers help people function. They make people look better, and they make people feel better about themselves.
