What to Keep in Mind When Considering a Dental Makeover

Just the thought of shaking off the chill of this past Winter is enough to put a smile on your face – and that’s the problem: Anything that puts a smile on your face is treated with caution.

Exposing your teeth and gums to the world isn’t the same for you as it is for other people, and with warmer weather just around the bend, there’s going to be a lot of smiling to go around. Unfortunately, you’re just not prepared for it.

You have let your smile take on a life of its own, and it has become a shadow of its former self. Months, even years, have gone by since your last visit with a Kennewick dentist. You’ve been neglecting an important procedure here, a routine check-up there, and now you are left with the ugly truth of your neglect: You have a smile that’s causing you pain and is embarrassing to share no matter what season it is.

With all of those smile-related problems piling up on you, it can seem downright overwhelming knowing where to start – assuming that you even think of your smile as something you can fix, like a set of leaky pipes that freeze during the winter, or a car in the garage that hasn’t run in ages. Those problems have become part of the backdrop of your life, and you have just learned to live with things as they are.

When that happens, you also stop thinking of how things could be, and have grown out of the habit of tackling them piece by piece until, one day, the problem is solved.

Your smile is no different. Despite the numerous problems going on within your smile, I can offer you a set of treatments uniquely tailored to the individual needs of your smile that will restore functionality and enhance beauty so that you can hold your head up high and smile at whatever the world has in store for you!

A Blueprint For Excellent Oral Health

A smile makeover is the perfect way to repair and augment a smile such as yours that has not only seen better days, but that has forgotten what better days even look like.

The process is similar to repairing that car or those leaky pipes in the sense that first, you must have a professional examine the problems. In that sense, you’ll come to my Kennewick offices for a simple doctor-patient consultation. Together, you and I will discuss the issues that have been plaguing your smile, identify what’s causing them, and create a blueprint to help me build you a new, healthier smile from the bottom floor up.

Feel free to ask me any questions during this visit, as your input is absolutely crucial to the success of your new smile plan. I’ve found that it also helps to relieve any anxiety you might have surrounding treatment, because an informed patient is usually a relaxed one.

The next step is where the real work begins. Once you have signed off on your smile makeover, my team and I will go about performing the actual reconstructive and cosmetic dentistry procedures that will rebuild your smile, bit by bit.

And that is the heart of a smile makeover: Figuring out which techniques and services will best achieve the goals that you have for your smile while solving any problems that have emerged over the months or years since your last visit to the dentist. There are no “twin” smiles, and since all are different, one smile makeover is never exactly the same as another. This personalized approach to meeting your dental needs is the basis for the power of a smile makeover.

For example, if you’ve been suffering from advanced gum disease which is beginning to threaten the integrity of your teeth, then you would likely benefit from gum disease treatment, followed by restorative procedures like a tooth bonding or maybe a dental implant capped with a glistening crown. Again, it all depends on what’s wrong with your smile.

Be Proud Of Your Smile Once Again

All in all, it really doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, because the problems in your smile don’t care, either. Therefore, you cannot wait until next Spring, or the Spring after that, to secure the benefits of a smile makeover. By then it could be too late, and the costs and pain are only going to increase.

So make the smart choice this Spring, and schedule your smile makeover with me by calling 509-591-0515, or by clicking here to request an appointment online.
