Dads often put self-care on the back burner, just like moms. And while Father’s Day often comes with plenty of warm cards and crazy ties, it can also come with one other thing: A determination to be the best version of yourself by investing in a smile makeover.
A new smile isn’t just about appearances. Sure, a smile makeover can help you look younger, happier, healthier, wealthier, and smarter. But a change in your teeth – in a good way – will give you greater confidence. And dads can never be too confident, especially when it comes to setting a good example, helping their children make decisions, or excelling at work to the benefit of the entire family.
If you’ve been trying to figure out the best way to treat yourself or improve your well-being, a smile makeover is an ideal place to begin. Here are some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments for dads:

  • Teeth whitening: When you want to elevate your smile in as little time as possible, a professional teeth whitening treatment gets the job done. You can actually have your teeth whitened in the dental office on your lunch break, brightening your smile exponentially, even if it’s a little bit crooked or imperfect. Teeth whitening can rid your teeth of extrinsic – surface – stains that have developed with age, bad habits, or the ingestion of certain foods and drinks. Prefer to whiten at home? Custom-made, take-home whitening kits are also a possibility if you’d like to manage your own teeth whitening process. 5 warnings about DIY teeth whitening
  • Invisalign: Perhaps you were the kid who refused braces because of the inevitable nicknames, teenage mortification, or potential discomfort. Maybe you now have a child of your own who’s refusing to get braces. Invisalign can potentially give both of you the option to straighten your smiles without anyone being the wiser. Invisalign straightens teeth a few at a time using nearly invisible aligners that are also removable, so you can get orthodontic treatment without being completely married to it, and you can continue to eat and drink all the foods you love without being interrupted by the wires and brackets of traditional metal braces. Does Invisalign fit your lifestyle?
  • Prepless veneers: For the dad in a hurry who needs more than just a teeth whitening to spruce up his smile, prepless veneers make it possible to achieve a smile makeover quickly. “Prepless” means simply that – there is little prep needed to get your teeth ready for their veneers other than a cleaning and light sanding. Veneers are then made in the dental office so that they can be edited in shape, size, color, and translucency until they are the perfect fit for your mouth shape and match the rest of your natural teeth. 10 things you need to know about prepless veneers

The amazing thing about taking care of yourself is that your children will witness your efforts. Let them see you floss your teeth every night. Let them know you brush your teeth as soon as you wake every morning and before you go to bed at night. Explain the importance of good oral health, not just for looks but for confidence, social success, and professional excellence.
