Straighter, whiter teeth can do a lot more than make you look great in your next selfie. From making you look younger to improving your nutrition and oral health, there are many benefits to fixing damaged teeth and investing in a smile makeover — at any age.
At Haider Family Dentistry in Salem, Oregon, our dentist Dr. Jeremy Haider and our team of dental professionals offer a range of general and cosmetic dentistry services for all of your oral health and smile makeover needs.
How a smile makeover can change the shape of your face
Even a single chipped or missing tooth can affect your entire smile. Missing teeth can cause your cheeks to sink and jaw to shrink, leading to a gaunt look and sagging around the mouth that can add years to your appearance.
And if missing or damaged teeth are making it difficult for you to eat, the resulting weight loss can also lead to looser skin around your mouth and cheeks.
The anatomy of a smile makeover
A smile makeover means different things to different people. It can be as simple as getting a professional teeth whitening treatment or include procedures such as dental veneers — which even out your smile and cover imperfections such as odd-shaped teeth, stains, cracks, or gaps — or dental implant restorations to replace missing teeth.
Whatever your dental needs are, Haider Family Dentistry offers a number of services to improve your oral health and fix your smile. While smile makeover procedures are generally more cosmetic in nature, there can be some overlap between cosmetic and restorative dental procedures.
For example, common dental treatments like crowns and dental implants certainly improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile, but they also improve your oral and overall health in the process.
Your smile makeover at Haider Family Dentistry may include one or more of the following restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures:
- Teeth whitening
- Dental implants
During a consultation, Dr. Haider evaluates your dental needs as well as your facial features and makes recommendations based on your needs and the cosmetic improvements that you want to make to your smile. He explains how certain procedures will change your smile as well as the shape of your face.
Depending on your situation and goals for your smile, your dental makeover may include several procedures. In many cases, one or two treatments are enough to fix your teeth and address concerns you have about a sunken face.
