Eventually, life will get back to normal. Eventually, your mouth will be visible all day every day. What kind of smile will you reveal to others? You may be hiding out now and covering up half your face for a while, but your smile still matters. Are you proud of what’s under your mask? Or do you need an upgrade? There is no better time to invest in a smile makeover that’s customized just for you.
Don’t Rely on Your Mask Forever
If you’ve been living with a smile that embarrasses you, wearing a mask may be a welcome order. You’re hiding everything that’s been making you feel self-conscious or dinging your confidence – thanks to the mask, you have no trouble speaking up and smiling, even though it’s hidden. Imagine how good it would feel to maintain that confidence when the masks come off permanently. You don’t want to go back to being ashamed of your teeth and smile, do you?
Here are just some of the ways you can get a smile makeover while you’re waiting for life to go back to normal:
- Whiten up: Professional teeth whitening is a powerful cosmetic dentistry treatment. You can have this done in your Manhattan dentist’s office in about an hour, or you can have customized whitening trays and professional-grade bleaching gels made to brighten your smile in the comfort of your home. Either way, a whiter smile looks like a more perfect smile.
- Improve everything: If you have a lot of imperfections in your teeth, porcelain veneers are the best way to conceal them. When your oral health is in good condition but the appearance of your teeth is less than ideal, prepless veneers, microthin veneers, or any type of veneer will cover up all the problems and give you a flawless, natural-looking smile in one procedure.
- Tweak the obvious: Do you have one or two teeth that have long marred an otherwise beautiful smile? Cosmetic tooth bonding or a porcelain crown can quickly correct that misshapen, distorted, or unsightly tooth so that it blends in with the rest of your teeth instead of standing out like a sore thumb.
You’re Not Completely Covered Up
If you’re like most people in 2020, you’re communicating with friends, family, and colleagues via a screen – and you’re not wearing a mask during these interactions. More than ever before, your teeth are a focal point of your appearance. You can’t avoid having someone look at your mouth and unconsciously critique what’s going on with your teeth and gums.
Talking to people on Zoom or FaceTime may even make you even more aware of your broken-down smile than ever before. Now is the time to change what’s damaged and get it back to working order.
