4 Tips to Prepare for Your Smile Makeover
A surprising proportion of adult Australians are unhappy with the appearance of their mouth, with many putting off undergoing the smile makeover experience because they’re unsure about what to expect, or they don’t know if they’re a good candidate.
At The Dental Boutique, our cosmetic dentistry practitioners and specialists are all based here in our Gold Coast practice, and we provide a personalised experience using only the most cutting-edge dental technology, to put you at ease. We’re available to answer any of your questions regarding the smile makeover process, and to ensure you’re well prepared for the treatments ahead. If you’re booked in for – or are thinking of booking in for – a smile makeover, get yourself off to the best possible start with these tips.
1. Consider what you want from the experience
We’ll take a deep dive into your aspirations for the treatment during your initial consultation, but it makes sense to ask yourself a few questions about what you’re hoping to achieve from your cosmetic dental treatment.
Generally, you should know:
- What shade you want your teeth to be – natural, super white, or something in between?
- If you want your teeth to be perfectly aligned, or with some variation
- What you don’t like about the way your current smile looks – do you feel like it’s crooked, gummy or too gappy?
- If there are any functional imperfections you want fixed – do you have an overbite or underbite, fractured or missing teeth, or decayed teeth?
2. Practise good oral hygiene
It’s important to have a healthy mouth before starting the treatment. Your teeth will react better to the treatment when they’re being looked after, and your cosmetic dental practitioner or specialist will provide specific advice on how to prepare the mouth for treatment. This could include regular brushing and flossing, cutting down on sugar and alcohol, or cutting out smoking.
3. Know how much it’s going to cost
The cost of a smile makeover varies hugely, depending on the type and number of treatments needed to achieve your goals. Each treatment plan at The Dental Boutique is tailored to the individual patient, and we’ll discuss the cost with you before you get started – always taking a transparent approach and making sure you’re aware of our payment plan options.
4. Become familiar with your cosmetic dentist
In order to achieve the results you want, we have to get to know you better. We provide a premium, relaxing environment and offer a personal approach to all of our customers, so you feel at ease enough to ask any questions and discuss your concerns or goals with us.
The experts at The Dental Boutique genuinely care about our patients and treat them like family, so take advantage of the initial consultation to get to know your dentist, so you feel as comfortable as possible, and ready to proceed with your smile makeover.
