Hi, I am Dr. Greg Ceyhan from Aesthetic Dentistry of Arrowhead in Glendale, Arizona and that’s in the Arrowhead area. A smile makeover is really people who are unhappy with the appearance or the look of their teeth or their smile. So, we sit down with the patient and go through a pretty thorough evaluation to figure out what it is they’re unhappy about with their smile and what’s the approach that we can take to fix that smile.
Believe it or not, different problems have different solutions, there’s not a one size fits all for everything. So depending on their particular problems, we may suggest simply tooth whitening or bleaching their teeth.
Another solution may be to actually veneer all their teeth with little thin shells of porcelain to really make the teeth appear whiter and straighter.
Another alternative may be to straighten their teeth with braces or Invisalign or some type of clear aligner like ClearCorrect.
So there is many options, it really all depends on what their particular problems are and what their wishes are for their smile.
Brushing and flossing everyday, that’s the most important thing that you can do. Seeing your dentist regularly whether it’s two, three or four times a year for just a routine cleaning, or a more involved cleaning, depending on whether or not you have gum problems, is also really important.
Going for regular care seems to be the one thing that I think is essential in catching stuff early and preventing bigger problems down the road. I think the best thing that I can advise my patients is, use a soft toothbrush, replace it every three to four months, and really to brush and floss after meals, so anywhere from two to three times a day would be great advice for anybody who wants to have a great smile.
