Am I a Candidate for a Smile Makeover?
There are several ways to answer the question posed above. For instance, you may be a good candidate for a smile makeover if you have a general sense of unhappiness whenever you see photos of yourself smiling or if you hide your smile because it makes you self-conscious. Of course, you may be a good candidate if you have experienced many dental issues, including untreated gum disease or decay, broken teeth, misaligned bite and more. At Martin Dentistry in Stockton, CA, we offer a full range of treatments that can reconstruct, restore and makeover your smile.
Of course, as your dentist in Stockton, we won’t consider you a candidate for a smile makeover until we are sure your oral health is secure. The first part of any smile makeover is not typically cosmetic dentistry but oral health exams and screenings and any general dentistry that addresses issues like decay, gum disease, or other similar concerns.
We then look at you as a candidate for a smile makeover if you need more than one treatment in order to get a straighter, better and brighter smile. For example, you may have lost a tooth to decay or accident, and you may have a chipped tooth as well. In addition to these issues, you may have stained teeth from years of smoking. This would make you a strong candidate for a makeover.
Getting Started With Your Smile Makeover
When you do pursue a smile makeover, we look at you as a unique individual and create a custom plan based on our assessment, your goals, and even your budget. After all, we may find that a dental implant is the best solution, but your budget may be limited to a dental bridge instead. Both solutions are effective, but the final choice is based on different variables.
Of course, you may come in for an evaluation and learn that, as a candidate for a smile makeover, you need only some whitening and a set of porcelain veneers to do the entire job! The key is to get you to the best oral health and then determine your esthetic needs.
