At Marlen Elite Dental Wellness, we help patients look and feel their best. We understand not everyone is born with a smile they love or their teeth have suffered from damage over the years. Regardless of your personal situation, you deserve to love your smile. One of the ways we can help you achieve that is with a smile makeover at our River Edge, NJ dental office.

Here are some of the signs you need a smile makeover.

1. You Hide Your Teeth

Do you find yourself hiding your teeth every chance you get? Do you go through meals, speeches, social gatherings, conversations, and life with your hand in front of your mouth? If you hide your teeth at every opportunity that someone might see them, this is a sure sign that you could benefit from a smile makeover. With a smile makeover, we can help you transform all of your flaws into a beautiful smile you can’t wait to show off.

2. You Never Smile

Some people constantly hide their teeth while other people simply just don’t smile. Smiling is one of the best ways to boost your own mood. If the sight of your teeth is causing you to never smile, this is a definite sign you need a smile makeover. You deserve to smile during life’s best moments—don’t let your teeth get in the way of that.

3. You Avoid Social Situations

If your teeth embarrass you to the point where you just avoid social situations entirely, you need a smile makeover. The last thing you should think about during social interactions is if other people are looking at your teeth and judging you. Your friends and family likely aren’t looking at your teeth or saying anything bad about you. However, if you find yourself canceling social engagements because of your teeth, you definitely need to talk to our River Edge cosmetic dentist, Dr. Martirossian. Let us help you feel confident in every social situation.

4. Your Teeth Have Stains, Chips, Cracks, or Misalignments

Your teeth don’t need to look horrible to get a smile makeover. If they’re simply stained, chipped, cracked, misaligned, gapped, or damaged in any way, a smile makeover can help. No matter how big or small your aesthetic problems are, we will design a custom smile makeover to enhance your smile. Your treatment might include porcelain veneers, Invisalign, teeth whitening, dental crowns, and more.

5. You’re Missing Teeth

When you lose a tooth, you have two options. You either replace it or you let it go missing. When you let it go missing, it can cause the remaining teeth to shift in position and throw off your bite. It can also cause bone resorption which can make you look older than your age. In some cases, people replace their missing teeth with a solution that doesn’t look good. In either case, your smile makeover can include tooth replacements such as dental implants, or New You Dentures that look natural and complement your appearance.

6. You Smile Looks Unnatural

When you have amalgam (silver) fillings or crowns, or other restorations that weren’t made of the highest quality, your smile might look unnatural. Fortunately, by replacing old dental fillings or restorations like dental crowns, inlays, onlays, porcelain veneers, or bonding, we can recraft your smile to look natural and beautiful again. We can even whiten your teeth to a natural shade.

7. Eating Feels Painful

Although a smile makeover typically focuses on cosmetics, this doesn’t mean that we don’t also look after your teeth’s functionality and strength too. Before we start any cosmetic work, we will fully evaluate your entire mouth to determine whether you have a TMJ disorder, a misaligned bite, gum disease, tooth decay, or any other potential oral health problems. Then, we will include any work needed to optimize your oral health with your cosmetic procedures. During your cosmetic procedures, we will also ensure any restorations leave you with a comfortable and relaxed bite. Once we’re finished, you will no longer feel pain or discomfort.

8. Your Teeth Feel Loose

Loose teeth are usually a sign of bone loss and/or gum disease. Your teeth shouldn’t feel loose in any way. During your smile makeover, we will help determine why you have loose teeth and provide a solution as part of your dental procedure.

9. There’s a Bad Taste in Your Mouth

Once again, before we even start your smile makeover, we will fully evaluate your oral health. If you’re experiencing a bad taste in your mouth, you might have gum disease, an abscess, or some type of oral infection. We will address your oral health problems before proceeding with any cosmetic treatments.

10. You Lack Confidence

The last sign you need a smile makeover is if you lack confidence. If you never assert yourself in meetings, in your social life, or life in general because you feel embarrassed by your smile, you need a smile makeover. A smile makeover can help you feel confident in your smile and your overall self. Think of the way a new outfit or haircut makes you feel. Imagine feeling like that every day with a smile makeover.
