See What a Smile Makeover Can Do for You
Smile makeover is, I think, almost a Hollywood term. They came from the Extreme Makeover TV show that was a few years back where they took a person who needed some help, gave him a new hairdo, fixed their teeth up, dropped a few pounds, pumped on some weight, got some new clothes, and did the makeup a certain way, and it just transformed the person into a whole new person. This idea of doing this won its way over into smiles and is referred to as the smile makeover. Here, what we have is a smile that has a number of issues with it that need to be taken care of. Again, this is something like the smile that needs to go to several different specialty shops to have different aspects of it taken care of to wind up with the final result that looks really good.
Again, I think that’s probably better handled if you have one person guiding this thing and has a final outcome in mind so that each of the various different specialties can be optimized to get the best final result. But the smile makeover, we reserve that usually for the smile where you’re making the whole thing over. You’re going to raise it up higher. You’re going to make it a little wider. You’re going to make the teeth a little longer. You’re going to shape the gums a little differently. You get into all of that, and then when you got that thing framed, it does look like a Hollywood smile.
