If you’re not completely satisfied with your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help improve your look and your self-confidence. Your journey to a perfect smile can begin with a smile analysis.
What’s A Smile Analysis?
If you’re not happy with your smile, a smile analysis will help you determine exactly what you don’t like about it and what you’d like to see changed. If you think cosmetic dentistry is in your future, analyzing your smile can help you communicate to your dentist exactly what you’d like to have done. Your journey to a perfect smile can begin with a smile analysis.
You can perform a smile analysis at home in your bathroom mirror. Spending the time to look closely at your teeth will help you tell your cosmetic dentist exactly what you feel is wrong with your smile. Some things to look for include:
- Uneven or crooked teeth
- Space between the teeth
- Chipping, cracks, or pitting
- Problems with the gums
- Asymmetrical teeth
Any or all of these issues can be addressed with cosmetic dentistry.
Using A Smile Analysis As A Tool
When you do your smile analysis, be sure to write down notes you can take with you when you talk to your dentist. Cosmetic treatment begins with a consultation. During this detailed conversation, you’ll discuss exactly what things bother you about your teeth. Your dentist will then suggest treatment or a series of treatments to move teeth into position, fill spaces, remove staining, or treat issues that have developed with the gums.
This combination of procedures to correct problems with your smile is often referred to as a smile makeover. During your consultation, you’ll discuss what procedures are best to help you reach your goals. You’ll also discuss a treatment schedule. Some work can be combined into a single appointment, saving you time and money and allowing you to reach your goal of a perfect smile that much faster.
