Today, we will be discussing everything you need to know about dental makeovers and what it involves. Makeovers are all about the integration of your appearance across multiple disciplines; it allows makeup artists, hairdressers and wardrobe designers to come together in order to meet the desired goals of the client.
Each of these disciplines by themselves can have a significant impact on your look, but by bringing them together, you can radically change your appearance. To a degree, this goes one step further with a dental makeover; integrating all of the skills of clinical and cosmetic dentistry and using them to alter your overall appearance.
How does it work?
As with most smile makeovers in Glasgow or anywhere in the UK, it starts with a relatively normal dental consultation. This is because when it comes to carrying out cosmetic work on a shaky foundation of cavities or decay, it would not only significantly reduce the lifespan of any cosmetic work, but correcting these issues will go a long way to radically improving your overall appearance, health and confidence.
The next stage involves discussing your aesthetic goals and exactly what you want to achieve. The pearly-white Hollywood smile is not for everyone and nor should it be. The idea of a dental makeover should revolve around how to integrate your smile with the rest of your appearance.
Photos will almost certainly be taken (unless they have already been carried out) and there should be at least a handful of X-rays. The dentist will have all the information they need to apply their professional skills and suggest a range of treatments. This can be a highly varied list, ranging from procedures as significant as dental implants to as simple as a scale and polish.
A scale and polish is not only great at preventing cavities, it significantly lightens the shade of your teeth and gives them a really shining opalescence that many dental teams would personally recommend!!
Whatever treatments are chosen, the dental practitioner will produce the treatment schedule and some of the procedures can be carried out simultaneously, where others will have to be carried out sequentially, such as whitening. Some require preparation, but if they do not, you will be able to start immediately if you choose.
What to Look for in a Dental Surgery
You might be surprised that the skills of your average dentist are exceptional when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Their background in physiology and an understanding of the balance and ratios of the face is really applicable to almost all cosmetic procedures. Even the humble filling has considerations of how it will affect the patient’s appearance when it gets performed.
But not all dentists are equal when it comes to performing a competent makeover. Therefore, it is best to ask for portfolios of past work, as well as checking recommendations and reviews online.
Do not judge books by their covers or assume that the most expensive dentists are by proxy the best; if somebody is specialized as an oral surgeon it does not necessarily make them the ‘best’ at cosmetic procedures.
Because of the highly personalized nature of your makeover, prices vary widely, but costs should always be discussed when the treatment schedule is being drafted so you know exactly what you are committing to. Most surgeries will offer zero interest credit schemes and will allow costs to be spread out over many months.
