Are you thinking about getting a full smile makeover? Congratulations! Getting a smile makeover can be a great way to improve your confidence and your dental health. Smile makeovers often involve veneers, implants, crowns and other strategies to create a completely different smile. But the first step will be deciding what type of smile you want. 

1. Look at Celebrity Smiles

Celebrities often have the best teeth -- and they should, as they sometimes spend tens of thousands of dollars getting them! If you want a true celebrity smile, try looking through magazines for a celebrity that has the appearance that you'd like. Don't just look at any celebrities, though; you should specifically look for celebrities who are close in your appearance, so that you can choose teeth that will look ideal for your face. 

2. Get a Digital Reconstruction

Many dentists today offer digital reconstructions to show you what your mouth will look like after the process. They begin by scanning in your face, and then they apply virtual changes to your teeth! You'll be able to see almost exactly how you'll look following implants, veneers, whitening and other processes. If you want to take your time with your decision, ask them to print out a few of the top candidates so you can look at them at home. You're making a big decision, so don't feel pressured to select something while you're actually in the office.

3. Try Out An App

Believe it or not, there's an app for that. While not as sophisticated as a dentist's reconstruction, there are apps available that let you take a quick photo of yourself and test out a variety of dental procedures. This is a good way to test out the idea of getting a smile makeover without any commitment, but you should still keep in mind the fact that an app isn't entirely accurate. Apart from apps, there are also websites that do the same thing. You can use apps and websites to find a general look that you like that you can show to your dentist later on. 

You can ask your dentists for more information about their smile makeover process. They may have some advice for you. Dentists see thousands of mouths every year and are very knowledgeable about which smiles will work best for certain face and lip shapes. Remember that what looks great on one person may not be the perfect fit for you!
