What are the benefits of a smile makeover?

Each and every one of our valued patients is unique, and, for this reason, our procedures are customized to each patient and their unique oral health needs. Benefits for our patients often include an improvement in oral health, enhanced appearance, increased confidence, and less stress over the care of their new smile.  Additionally, fillings and root canals can halt the progress of tooth decay before the damage is irreversible, and other products like dental crowns, bridges, and implants can greater improve appearance and function of your smile.

What dental procedures are offered in a smile makeover?

Restorative dental procedures include repairing or replacing of teeth, whitening teeth, replacing old metal fillings with tooth-colored fillings and straightening misaligned teeth with Invisalign clear braces.  In the case of tooth loss or gum damage, our doctors provide dental crowns to cap damaged teeth, porcelain veneers to cover discolored or misshaped teeth, dental bridges, and dental implants to replace missing teeth.

The cosmetic procedures we offer are porcelain veneers, gum contouring, and teeth whitening. Porcelain veneers are lustrous and stain-resistant caps that cover the front of the tooth.  Veneers can also be used to cover cracks, stains, chipped teeth and wide gaps between teeth. Gum contouring shapes insufficient gums or areas of the gum line that cover too much of the teeth. Teeth whitening utilizes a bleaching gel and bleaching lamp to lighten your teeth by one or more shades.

What if I need more than one procedure?

At our offices, a smile makeover typically includes one or more treatments. Depending on the state of your oral health, we may recommend two or more procedures that contain both restorative and cosmetic procedures. Some commonly combined procedures for a gorgeous looking smile are: teeth whitening and porcelain crowns, or a combination of dental implants and porcelain veneers.  After the initial consultation with one of our doctors, we can specify exactly which procedures will best help you achieve your best smile ever.
