How is a smile makeover performed?

Your smile makeover will involve several different types of dental work. A cosmetic dentist will evaluate the current state of your smile and determine which treatments will be most beneficial for you. Some patients benefit from a single cosmetic treatment, while others may require a combination of treatments.

What are the benefits of a smile makeover?

The smile makeover procedure corrects both major and minor cosmetic flaws. It helps restore oral function and aesthetics. The cosmetic improvements that you can expect from a dental procedure include:

  • A brighter smile
  • Straighter, aligned teeth
  • Improved appearance of gums 

Is a smile makeover right for you?

A smile makeover is an individualized combination of procedures that are designed to achieve your unique goals. A smile makeover is for everyone, no matter your age.

What does a smile makeover treatment entail?

  • Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to have your smile transformed. This treatment eliminates dental stains and results in a whiter smile. 

  • Tooth-colored fillings

Tooth-colored fillings can be considered one of the best ways to address cavities because of their several benefits. Besides providing great aesthetics, composite fillings bond to your tooth structure, making them more resistant to fractures. Composite fillings also don’t require the removal of healthy tooth structures, which protects your teeth’s remaining structure.

  • Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are placed over the teeth to correct crooked, gapped, and misshapen teeth. The veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite bonding material. Porcelain veneers look more natural, resist staining from coffee, tea, and cigarette smoke, and are durable. 

  • Dental crowns

Teeth that have cracks, chips, major stains, and gaps can all be treated with dental crowns. Dental crowns cover the entire tooth above the gum line. They are made from porcelain or zirconia, which look very similar to real teeth.

  • Dental implants

Dental implants are placed into the jawbone and help prevent bone loss. If you have missing teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth and look and feel like natural teeth.

  • Orthodontic treatment

Smile makeover patients commonly want to improve the appearance and alignment of their smile. Braces or Invisalign aligners are a common treatment option that straightens teeth and provides an even bite.

  • Dental bridges

Dental bridges are fixed prosthetics used to replace one or multiple missing teeth in a row. Dental bridges are permanently fixed in place and cannot be removed.

  • Dental bonding

Dental bonding is an effective cosmetic procedure to repair minor chips and fractures in teeth. The dentist applies a tooth-colored composite resin material to the tooth, and a light is used to harden the material and cure it. The dentist then shapes and polishes the tooth for a beautiful, natural-looking appearance.

  • Gum surgery

There are several types of gum surgery, such as periodontal flap surgery, gingivectomy, crown lengthening, and soft tissue grafts, that improve the appearance and health of gums.
