Halloween is a great time to cover up what you don’t love about yourself, and it’s an opportunity to make an unsightly smile complement the creepiest of costumes. However, October 31 is only one night of the year – you want a smile makeover that will serve you 365 days of the year, year after year.
Dracula never complained about his fangs. After all, they’re part of his personal style. Your teeth are an essential piece of your aesthetic whether you like it or not. If you don’t love the way your teeth look, you probably don’t want your smile to be the center of attention. Time to make a change. Here are three ways to do it.
Accept the obvious.
It’s important to acknowledge that you have bad teeth. You’ll never make the move to change your smile if you don’t admit that something isn’t right. It’s ok to say your teeth aren’t perfect, whether in appearance or functionality. Plenty of people are in the same situation. What’s important is making the decision to do something about it.
Know your options.
There are multiple ways to create your customized smile makeover. You may have chips and gaps and short teeth. Porcelain veneers can fix all of that. You may have crooked and stained teeth. Porcelain veneers can fix both, but so can a mix of Invisalign and teeth whitening.
The creation of your new perfect smile will depend on your smile goals, budget, threshold for time spent in a dentist’s chair, and level of commitment. Be honest with yourself about whether you want a fast fix or are willing to put in months for the ideal combo of fixes. Your Manhattan dentist will let you know all the viable options and provide recommendations so you can make the most informed choice.
Trust that you’ll look good.
Trusting in the skills and experience of your NYC cosmetic dentist is essential. Some people drag their feet about a smile makeover because they fear their teeth and smile will look unnatural afterward.
If you identify a top-rated and highly respected cosmetic dentist, your teeth will be transformed to complement your appearance, face shape, and skin tone. In other words, your porcelain veneers or crowns or other procedures will look completely natural. You’ll be you – but with better teeth.
Fright Night Should Only Fall Once a Year
There is no reason anyone should live with a smile they dislike. You shouldn’t have to hide behind your hand when you smile or be embarrassed about how your teeth look if you do smile. You shouldn’t live in fear of judgment of others when you show your teeth. Be proud to speak up and laugh. Be confident about flashing a smile.
