Dr. Arun Narang, a long-standing member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), delves into need-to-know information for patients seeking smile transformations at his Mississauga practice.
Mississauga, ON — It’s no secret that a winning smile can go a long way towards enhancing an individual’s confidence, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, and even professional opportunities. Along with the many advances in cosmetic dentistry, a combination treatment plan called a smile makeover has quickly been gaining popularity as a comprehensive method of addressing several different dental concerns at once for complete renewal of the teeth. This renown is for good reason—a smile makeover has the ability to address several aspects of the smile, from the color and shape of teeth to the symmetry of the gumline. As a result, smile makeovers can be quite powerful, whether utilized for simple cosmetic polishes or for full reconstruction of a patient’s dental arches. Cosmetic dentist Arun Narang, DDS has ample experience performing smile transformations at both his Mississauga dental practice, Dr. Arun Narang & Associates, and for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s humanitarian “Give Back a Smile” program. Here, he delineates a few key facts that all patients considering a smile makeover should know before they decide to pursue treatment.
First of all, every potential smile makeover candidate should be aware that the final results are dependent on the expertise and quality of their cosmetic dentist. Dr. Narang explains that the revitalization of one’s smile is a long-term investment into their appearance, therefore decisions about the best dentist to perform treatment should be based on experience, training, reputation, and safety, with less weight placed on which provider is the cheapest option. In addition, Dr. Narang urges individuals to select a practice that utilizes digital smile design technology, which allows a patient to preview the anticipated results of their new smile before any work is done and make refinements to their dental plan as necessary. This can provide a clearer idea of what can be expected by combining different treatment options, such as porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and Invisalign®, among other services.
Dr. Narang also points out that any pre-existing oral health concerns, such as gum disease and/or cavities, will be addressed before the start of a smile makeover. The process may be completed in multiple stages or a single appointment, depending on each patient’s needs and cosmetic goals. Dr. Narang reminds patients that a smile makeover can address not only cosmetic concerns, but also more extensive issues concerning one’s bite, missing teeth, and/or the presence of widespread decay. Since a smile makeover is tailor-made to an individual’s unique needs, every aspect of treatment is personalized with the goal of making one’s dream smile a reality.
