Preparing for The Best Smile Makeover Results

So You Want a Smile Makeover…Preparation is Key

Your smile is a big part of who you are. It is one of the first things others notice about your face, and can make a lasting impression (for better or worse). 

Yet, many of those across Auckland are living with a smile they would rather hide than show off to others. Dr AJ Salman and his team at Northmed Dental offer hope for those in need of a smile makeover.

Advancements in cosmetic dentistry have made smile makeovers more accessible, affordable and effective than ever before.

Smile Makeovers

A smile makeover refers to one or more cosmetic dental services aimed at restoring the aesthetic appeal of your pearly whites, giving you a picture perfect smile that will leave you smiling wide with joy. 

Cosmetic Dentistry

Primarily concerned with aesthetics and beauty, cosmetic dentistry encompasses a wide range of innovative dental procedures that can effectively transform broken, cracked, misaligned, damaged or severely decayed teeth into a Hollywood ready smile. 

How to Prepare for Your Smile Makeover to Get the Best Results 

Address Underlying Conditions 

Addressing any underlying oral health concerns is one of the most important steps you can take towards ensuring your smile makeover is an astronomical success. In many cases, oral health conditions may have contributed to your need for a smile makeover in the first place.

Think of this as a foundational approach, ensuring that your smile makeover is built on a solid healthy foundation that will enhance the outcome.

Treatments may involve but are not limited to, deep cleaning, scaling, addressing gum disease or gingivitis, pulling decayed or broken teeth and more.

Regular Dental Checkups Leading Up to Your Procedure 

Regular dental checkups can help ensure that the health of your gums, teeth, mouth and oral cavity is progressing nicely leading up to any smile makeover procedure.

Good Oral Health Practices at Home 

At-home oral care is important too. Regular brushing and flossing, at least twice a day and/or after meals is advisable.

Healthy Lifestyle Habits 

Apart from your oral health, your physical and mental health can play a big role in recovery. Eating a well-balanced diet, getting enough rest, reducing stress, and eliminating or cutting back on alcohol and tobacco can go a long way to improving smile makeover results and encouraging healing.
