Emphasizing one part of yourself to draw away from another though is never successful – your efforts just bring attention to you in general, and your unsightly teeth will still be there for all to see. If you’re self-conscious of your unsightly teeth, it’s time to talk smile makeover.

Invest in a Permanent Solution for Your Smile

Makeup is a temporary solution, whether you’re covering up undereye circles, blemishes, or a broken-down smile. It also needs to be washed off and reapplied, which isn’t always convenient. A smile makeover, however, is a permanent solution – it’s a solution so outstanding that sometimes you’ll feel like you don’t need any makeup at all to complete your look.

Some fully permanent smile makeover solutions never need to be repeated, like porcelain veneers. Once in place, your look is done. You can choose from conventional veneers, prepless veneers, and Microthin veneers based on your comfort level with prep work, your budget, and the condition of your teeth. Whichever solution you choose, it delivers a long-lasting smile makeover that always makes you look finished, pulled together, and flawless because of your gorgeous smile.

White Teeth for the Win

There are plenty of over-the-counter teeth whitening options available that claim to transform your smile. While they can brighten your teeth a little, if they work at all, the results are temporary. Professional teeth whitening from your NYC cosmetic dentist can last for years with daily brushing and flossing and regular dental checkups. Whitening touchups every now and then keep the brightness going so your smile always looks great.

Plus, the treatment is customized to your unique smile and tooth enamel – there is no room for error. The best part about professional whitening is that your teeth don’t need to be perfect to look amazing. Whitening treatments create the illusion of perfection – something makeup can never do for your teeth.

Tweak Your Smile Into Perfection

Your smile is a major part of your appearance, and it affects your self-esteem – some people are more aware of this than others. Both your personal and professional life are impacted by your teeth, and impact your performance, confidence, and level of success. It is worth it to take the time to get your teeth into their very best form.

The changes you make don’t have to be big to be categorized as a smile makeover. Tweaking a few problems with solutions like dental bonding can be the difference between one stained tooth that stands out from the crowd and a tooth that blends in with its neighbors. Getting a porcelain crown for that one short or small tooth will create a seamless smile.
