From Hollywood to Instagram, we constantly see pictures of these picture perfect smiles, while, straight, and beautiful shapes. We often wonder what it takes to get these teeth on our own selves. If you are one who is wondering on how your smile will look like after a smile makeover, look no further.
It’s true, over one quarter of the population believe that their smile isn’t good enough to be shown to public - ie. they do not smile.It is also true that those who do smile get a different image about themselves of friendliness, confidence, beauty, and inner self-worth. There is a popular quote that says “a smile is worth a thousand words,” that is because of the projection one gives with a beautiful and confident smile.
What should you expect at your Smile Design consult appointment?

How many appointments does it take to do a Smile Makeover?
It depends.
