Are there multiple things you do not like about your teeth or smile that you would like to fix, but you are uncertain where to begin? Do you avoid smiling in pictures or looking at yourself in a mirror? Are your teeth broken, discolored, or missing? Perhaps there only one or two minor things you would like to improve, but you know that if you did your smile would be perfect?
In real life very few people are lucky enough to have “perfect” smiles, and even if you were born with a perfect smile, the stress of life, and time, can have a negative effect.
Teeth chip, darken, move in your mouth, and even accidents can affect your teeth, mouth, and smile.
Unfortunately, being self-conscious about your smile can cause daily worry and needless distraction from enjoying your daily life as you should. Worse, if other people don’t like your smile, studies indicate they think less of you. Your smile can affect all aspects of your life!
Unfortunately some of us think we don’t have the time or money to fix all the problems we see in our smile. We also don’t know exactly how to go about it. Should we get dental crowns, veneers, bridges, or whitening? The path to a winning smile can be unclear and expensive.
Now, however, your skilled Glen Waverley dentist at EK Dental Surgery can remove that uncertainty and give you a stunning smile through a smile makeover. A smile makeover is a total approach to your smile that may use multiple dental treatments to give you a smile you can be proud to show to the world!
A smile makeover makes cosmetic, dental, and budgetary sense!
What Can a Smile Makeover Do?
According to a 2011 survey of cosmetic dentists by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the most common dental problems are chipped, discolored, or uneven teeth. These problems result in less-than-perfect smiles. Unfortunately, imperfect smiles can have multiple negative effects.
The AACD produced a national survey stating that 99.7% of adults believe a smile is an important social asset, and that 74% of adults feel an unattractive smile can adversely affect a person’s chances for employment success
Smiles also impact social interaction, including dating. Experiments have shown the impact of cosmetic dental surgery on other people’s perceptions. When presented with ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos of people who had improved their smile through cosmetic dentistry, the “after” photos were uniformly viewed as more attractive, more likely to enjoy success with the opposite sex, and even as being wealthier, even though the people in the photos were the same!
A brilliant smile can be a powerful way to improve your life and a smile makeover is that path to that smile!

What is a Smile Makeover?
Depending on your smile, your makeover could be as simple as a teeth whitening, or it could involve multiple procedures. In most cases, a smile makeover includes a combination of treatments. Here are some of the most likely.
Teeth Whitening – Often, the number one thing people dislike about their teeth is related to color or brightness. Teeth whitening treatment can give you a brighter, more beautiful smile.
Teeth Straightening– straightening fixes crooked and misaligned teeth, not only improving the look of your teeth, but also improving your bite. The cosmetic treatments of a smile makeover are also often restorative and preventative treatments as well!
White Fillings and Crowns – If you have silver or amalgam fillings your EK Dental dentist can replace them with durable, white, and natural-looking fillings and crowns.
Dental Veneers – Dental veneers can cover discolouration, chips, speckled enamel, or misaligned teeth. Veneers also resist staining.
Dental Implants –Dental implants are permanent, realistic-looking replacements for missing teeth.
Other Dental Replacement Options – You can also receive a semi-permanent dental bridge or a fixed dental bridge, or we can have dentures created to your individual specifications.
