How to Makeover a Smile that’s Missing Teeth

Smile makeovers are highly personal treatment plans that are designed to optimize the function and appearance of patients’ smiles according to their unique dental needs. For instance, if your teeth are chipped or worn, then rebuilding their structures will be an important part of your makeover. If you’re missing one or more teeth, then dental implants may play a vital role in rebuilding your smile, as well. With the goal of keeping your smile healthy and beautiful, implants can offer the most comprehensive tooth replacement, and their benefits include helping you avoid more serious dental concerns in the future.

Replacing the Lost Teeth

Many smile makeover plans include more than one specific treatment, and that’s often the case when missing teeth are involved. However, given the importance of replacing your lost teeth, that’s often the first step. With the help of dental implants, your lifelike crown, bridge, or denture will rest securely and comfortably among the rest of your teeth, as well as help preserve those teeth by preserving the strength of your jawbone.

Making Sure the Rest of Your Smile Fits

Once your implant restoration is in place, your dentist can continue making over your smile by improving the health and appearance of your remaining teeth. If any of them are stained, chipped, worn, cracked, or out of alignment, then the rest of your treatment may include one or more procedures to restore their appearance. Your dentist will use the healthy, highly lifelike appearance of your implant restoration to make the rest of your smile uniform, creating the beautiful smile you deserve.

Makeover Your Smile Even with Missing Teeth

The purpose of a smile makeover is to make your smile like new again, and if you have one or more missing teeth, then your treatment plan may include one or more dental implants.
