What is a Smile Makeover?
A smile makeover can be as simple as a single treatment for teeth whitening, or a series of treatments involving orthodontics, crowns, veneers or a variety of other dental processes. Whatever your smile makeover may need, whether you live in Fort Worth or anywhere else, you will end up with much more than a beautiful smile; you will have more confidence, an improved overall attitude and a whole new way to interact with people.
A smile makeover is a process you choose to have performed. Usually, there are no medical necessities for this type of procedure, as there would be for a full mouth reconstruction, for example. Still, a smile makeover should be taken very seriously, and begin with a comprehensive examination in the office of a trusted dentist. (If you live in or near Forth Worth, Texas, we recommend the office of Dr. Randy A. Parham, D.D.S.)
Here are some of the aspects of your smile that your dentist will consider:
The Color of Your Teeth
If you have dark or discolored teeth, it may simply be a function of aging. On the other hand, this may be caused by excessive coffee or tobacco use. In either case, your dentist will go over all the recommended teeth whitening options, including chemical and laser whitening or porcelain veneers and crowns. Another factor in improving the overall color of your teeth is to replace silver or amalgam dental fillings with natural, tooth-colored composite fillings. Remember that you will work together with your dentist, Dr. Randy Parham (https://fortworthdentist.com/get-to-know-us) to find the exact shade of white for your teeth that will make you most comfortable.

The Arrangement of Your Teeth
Just as one bad apple can spoil the whole barrel, one crooked tooth can spoil your smile. Using orthodontics, Invisalign or veneers, your teeth can be straightened or aligned to correct crooked or overlapping teeth, or fill in any gaps.

A missing tooth can affect more than your smile; it can affect your bite and, even, increase your risk for tooth decay. Missing teeth can be replaced easily, however, by using dental implants, bridges or partial dentures. Dr. Parham has a team of board-certified professionals in Fort Worth that will accommodate your needs.
The Overall Appearance of Your Smile
A talented dentist, like Fort Worth dentist, Dr. Randy Parham, is able to do a number of things to improve the overall harmony and balance of your smile. Uneven, chipped or cracked teeth can be cosmetically bonded. Other procedures can give you the appearance of fuller lips and cheeks. Even an overly gummy smile can be re-contoured to help improve the overall appearance of your smile.
In addition to the cosmetic fixes described above, this Fort Worth dentist will consider a number of esthetic procedures to give you the best possible smile makeover. As we age, our teeth suffer wear and tear resulting in shorter teeth, so your dentist may consider teeth lengthening procedures. Making sure your teeth are in proportion with each other is another consideration. And looking at the texture and finish of each tooth could help you have a more natural-looking smile. With proper treatment and maintenance, you should be able to enjoy your smile makeover for the rest of your life – and so will those around you.
