Why do people get makeovers? Because they want to change something about their appearance. Because they want to look their best. Because they want to feel more confident. All of those things are true for a smile makeover as well.
The reasons that our patients come to LANAP & Implant Center of Pennsylvania for smile makeovers will vary from patient to patient. But fundamentally, we offer this service for one simple reason — quality of life.
A person who has received a smile makeover can eat more comfortably and feel more confident about interacting in personal and professional settings.

The Benefits Of A Smile Makeover
On a personal level, your smile affects you. When you feel happy, you can’t hide a genuine smile. It’s almost an involuntary reaction.
Unless you don’t like your smile. You may actively fight the urge to smile if you don’t like how your teeth look. This is unfortunate for many reasons.
First, you are denying yourself the pleasure that you should be enjoying. Second, you are robbing other people of the effect of your smile. Seeing someone smile can lift your spirits, and seeing you smile may be the boost that someone else needs today.
We want to see you smile, too, whenever you come to the LANAP & Implant Center. We also have the skills and the services that can help you feel more comfortable with your smile.
When you have a nice smile, it can pay off in other ways, too.
Is your smile keeping you from asking out someone or accepting an invitation? Are you hesitant to go on a job interview because of your teeth? We want to remove that psychological barrier so you can do the things that you really want to do with your life.
We would be remiss if we didn’t point out that your smile does affect how other people perceive you, too. A few years ago, Kelton (a research company) conducted a survey about smiles.
Two-thirds of the respondents said they are more likely to remember someone’s attractive features. Having a nice smile can make you more memorable.
But the survey results went deeper than that. The researchers also reported the following:
➤ 58 percent of participants said people with nice teeth were considered more successful
➤ 57 percent also said the would be more likely to go on a date with someone with a nice smile
➤ And 73 percent said they considered someone with a nice smile to be trustworthy
A smile makeover could do a lot more than alter the appearance of your smile. Visit either our Collegeville or Williamsport dentist office to learn more.
Practical Advantages Of A Smile Makeover
So far, we have focused on the mental and emotional benefits of a smile makeover. There are functional reasons to “fix” your teeth, too.
If you have teeth that are too long, this can cause lead to wear and tear that weakens your teeth. This can leave you more vulnerable to tooth decay and other oral health issues.
If you have receding gums, this too can expose your mouth to infections. A gum graft can restore your missing gum tissue and provide protection for the roots of your teeth.
And if you are missing teeth, then we have a number of ways to restore what you have lost. Here are some of those services:
▪︎ Dental implants — These replace the roots of your missing teeth and provide stable support for the replacements for the crowns of your teeth.
▪︎ Dentures — If you are missing one or both rows of teeth, dentures are the most efficient way to bring back a natural-looking smile.
▪︎ Dental bridges — For patients who are missing multiple teeth, a dental bridge can be used to replace all of them at the same time.
▪︎ Dental crowns — To replace a single tooth, we can place a dental crown on a dental implant. Dental crowns also can be used to repair teeth that have been damaged due to tooth decay, cracks, or breaks.
