See What a Smile Makeover Can Do for You
One individual I’ve known for a few years, this patient had shown an interest in wanting to straighten their teeth. But I also noticed that they had some discoloration issues. Most teeth are one shade, but some people will have a rainbow effect or so. So, I looked at this case and noticed that the gentleman had a mustache that was a little on the longer side, almost like hiding the teeth a little bit. So, he had listened to an option that I was considering, and that was actually to do a smile makeover for him. It was a combination that he accepted, which was veneers as well as crowns. The procedure itself only took less than a month, in that he had the temporaries on and had instant gratification of what was done. Then he came back for the, if you will, the final product. But what I’d seen differently after that month was that our patient had shaved off his mustache. I almost didn’t recognize him because it wasn’t there. Of course, I turned to him and I said, So, why did you decided that? I kind of assumed that it might be. He just felt so comfortable about smiling in front of people that he realized that for the 20 plus years that he had the mustache there, it was really because he was hiding the upper front teeth.
